I hope everyone is doing ok and if you are not remember that is ok not to be ok.
Still fighting this stupid cold eurgh! I have been spending most evenings curled up in my pajamas drinking tea in bed surrounded by a sea of tissues. But that’s the winter for you cold and flu season it is not the first and I am sure it won’t be the last cold I have. I just hope I am better soon as there is nothing worse than being in a good head space but then physically not so good. So send me your good vibes people!
So the thing that has inspired today’s post I something I have come across on a lot in my daily life and on social media.
My tip of the day is – Just be you.
We can easily get sucked into other people’s whirlwind and it can get to a point where we start comparing our lives to theirs. You only have to have a catch up with a friend or see a picture on Instagram and the cogs start turning in our mind. I think it is just human nature everybody does it from time to time, but when you are dealing with a mental illness, for instance, anxiety, those kinds of thoughts can be damaging, This is where a fleeting thought can turn into a trigger for something more mentally straining and snowball into a dangerous place. You know it could be as simple as someone posting a picture of their food they have just cooked. Instead of an “oh that looks nice I wish I had that, as I wish I had that, why can’t I cook like that? Am I an awful cook? What is wrong with me? Why can’t I be like them? Why am I me?
See the snowball effect can lead you down a hill that is so hard to climb back up. The reason you are not them is you are it is that simple. We are not clones we are all individuals and it is not even about the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. It is about well what if I don’t what my grass to be green what if I what pink instead because that is me. We are all guilty of comparing ourselves to other people, I am not as smart as them or as good looking or even as successful. You were put here to be you not them. So be you embrace the good and the but fuck it, it’s your life.
Take care all
