We have made it to Wednesday; if you have struggled, like me, this week give yourself a self-high five. I am actually starting to think that someone has been playing a joke on me this week. It is like someone decided to gather a bunch of life lessons lemons in like a wheelbarrow, waited until that moment on Monday morning when I was opening eyes and dumped them on me. They have been hitting me left right and center. I can’t move at the moment without a fucking life lemon hitting me in the fucking face. So if I ever find the person who thought that was a great idea, I will be putting one of those lemons in their fucking…
Anyway, with that slight rant over with let’s carry on. I want to bring up something that I have learned this week.
Tip of the day – You can’t just wave a magic wand.
If only it was so easy as just picking up a wand and poof! Problems have disappeared or probably exploded if magic was real and I was trusted with a wand. Hoping and googling for that magical fix for a problem is probably going to leave you feeling disappointed. Look, we have all been there but this isn’t a Harry Potter book, unfortunately, and let’s be honest even with all that magic at Harry’s fingertips he still had a shit tonne of problems that he couldn’t disappear with a wave of his wand.
Facing something head-on can be daunting and a problem wouldn’t be called a problem if it were easily solved. So lets put down the wands and address the issue because even by acknowledging something is a small step to solving the problem.
For me, I have to stop pushing down my feelings on my relationship with my parents, instead of saying I am fine and yeah I am ok with the fact they don’t bother with me at all, I need to admit to myself no I am not ok. Actually, I am fucking devastated at the state of the relationship and I need to find a way of being ok with it instead of pretending that I am.
Well, that is a story for another night because if I carry on talking about thais problem we will be here all night!
This can also be applied to not only with a problem you see with yourself but with things around you. If you want to spread awareness for something like mental health, or an illness or even a social issue, instead of just liking a post online, help out a charity, stand up and be counted and get your voice heard.
Take care all
