7 Secrets for Staying Positive when Life Sucks

Staying positive is hard when you’ve had multiple setbacks, terrible luck, or when things aren’t going your way despite your best efforts. It’s natural to think: my life sucks.

What can you do when that happens?

In this article, I will share some secrets that can help you when you’ve asked yourself: why does my life suck?


When things don’t go your way, it’s natural to become frustrated. That’s perfectly normal and acceptable. Accept and analyze your feelings rather than attempting to push them away.

Be Grateful

study performed at the University of Miami found a link between gratitude and happiness.

Gratitude is the most effective approach to maintaining a positive attitude. Write down three things in your life that you are very grateful for at the end of each day before you sleep.

Look back at the things you’ve written down when you’re feeling bad about your life to remind yourself of the positive aspects.


Changing your perspective on a problem can sometimes help you see things in a fresh light.

Changing your outlook can help you realize that you can improve yourself and your situation.

Don’t get frustrated if you can’t see the outcome or aren’t sure what it will be. Believe in yourself that it will appear and that you will be ready for it.


Even when your circumstances aren’t perfect, helping others is one of the most effective and immediate methods to be optimistic.

When you assist others, you bring joy into their life. Bringing happiness and optimism into people’s lives (or animals) allows you to take more positivity out of it for yourself.


Looking at other people’s “highlights” on social media doesn’t help you feel any better when you’re having a hard time staying positive.

Remember that social media does not show how a person truly feels, and you have no way of knowing if they are happy or sad. Maybe their “happy life” could make you feel even worse.

Learn to disconnect from social media and focus only on yourself and your feelings.


Exercise provides a wide range of mental benefits. It releases endorphins that make you feel happy.

If you don’t normally get much exercise. Just try some modest activities, such as walking in a park, swimming in a lake, or playing a soccer game with your friends.

This will help you stop using your head and start using your body.
