Two words: Honesty and Appreciation. First off honesty. The chance's of you achieving all your dreams was pretty slim to begin with 7 billion people on this planet and not even a 1% of them have achieved all their dreams. Dreams are simply a compass giving you a since of direction. If you're miserable now achieving your dreams won't make you less miserable. Misery has nothing to do with success and everything to do with prospective. Which leads me to point to. Appreciation. First of your not dead or psychic so stop assuming your life's gonna go down hill from here. You don't know. Learn to be okay with that. Focus on what you have. You've got a degree and if you live in the western world a solid 30 more years doing whatever in the work force. You can do a lot in 30 years. You've got access to the Internet. You've probably never had to catch or grow your own food out of necessity. You e actually got a shit ton in your life worth paying attention to. And I'm not saying this so you'd feel ashamed about feeling negatively I'm saying this to show you that if you spend all of your time focusing on what's wrong how could you possible be happy. That's like staring into a toilet and wondering why everything always looks like shit. You've got to look around. Find things to appreciate in everything you do, see, feel, experience. The more you do it the more natural it becomes and the happier you'll be. I can almost guarantee you won't take this advise though. Like most people you're gonna take the hard route. You're most likely gonna keep beating yourself up about everything until you get so exhausted you'll give up and finally decide to pay attention to something other than your problems. Hopefully it'll be something healthy and you'll slowly change and end up being that old lady trying to advise the younger generation to chill out and learn to love life for what it is.0

Depression usually signals you need to make changes in your life. First you need to decide what changes need to be made , then motivate yourself to make those changes.
Unforeseen circumstances or wrong decisions can take away your dreams/ goals, but you have to try to challenge your mind to adapt to those changes , and create new dreams & goals for yourself... instead of become overwhelmed by disappointment
We all make mistakes and wrong decisions. Like they say... your best teacher is your last mistake. Wrong choices actually teach you what you don't want in my life. So mistakes help you to mature as a person and guide you on the right path that you want to be on. Mistakes are meant to guide you... not define you0
