Don’t make decisions about tomorrow based on how you feel now

I find myself making decisions for the future based on my current depressing thoughts. Instead of allowing myself the time to feel better, I automatically assume I will not so I will cancel plans because I don’t feel up to them in that moment even though I may feel fine tomorrow. Having this mindset reinforces the negative thought that things will never improve for my mental health. That is why I need to stay strong and focus on what is happening now instead of what may happen tomorrow.

Thinking about this makes me think about suicide. Suicide is a decision made for the future that can’t be reversed. Don’t make a decision to end your life just because you are feeling down now. It will get better.

The only time that making a decision about tomorrow based on how you feel now is appropriate is if you are making a decision about doing something positive and healthy tomorrow when you feel down today. It is always good to look forward to something better. Always look to improve yourself.
