How to get out of a crisis in life

Many have found themselves in a situation where they found themselves in a crisis, depression was piling up, despair was squeezing in its arms, and the prospects and future were very vague. How to get out of the crisis in life?

Received some education, started working somewhere and stuck for years. You are still young, but not as much as you would like. The work does not please, personal life is average and there are no prospects for the future. They don’t hire good big companies, there are no cool connections, you can’t get a job as a top manager. Acquaintances buy cars, apartments, occupy leadership positions, get married, have children. And you're all wrong. There are no prospects, no future, and depression drags you into the abyss of alcohol, panic and despair.

This is the story of many people. Someone simply indulges in dreams, others become an inveterate drunkard, others fight all their lives against an invisible ceiling. What to do and how to change life for the better if you find yourself in a deep crisis?

How do people get out of a life crisis?

Only those who want it themselves become losers, alcoholics and homeless people.

Let's start with the fact that there are no universal councils. No one will tell you to go there, do this and do that. But you can change everything if you start to act.

One of my acquaintances was from a poor and not at all prosperous family. She had a humanitarian education, but a great faith in herself. She failed job interviews dozens of times. But she did not hang her nose and continued to be persistent. She continued to study, studied at home around the clock, additionally went to courses and took on various part-time jobs. Only a year and a half later, she was able to get the job of her dreams. She got what she wanted.

My classmate after studying returned to the periphery home. He got married, got an average position and lived without grieve. But a few years later he divorced, and at work they began to pay very little. Depression, alcohol and crisis in life. But one tourist trip to St. Petersburg changed everything. A classmate packed up and moved to St. Petersburg with one bag. There he found himself a new job and a new wife. But for this, in the new city, he had to work very hard for three years.

Another comrade sat on the neck of his parents until the girl left him. This served as a good motivation for change. The guy sat down for programming and a year later he was able to get his first job. Ten years later, that loser and he now are completely different people.
