Welcome back to crazy little things! I hope everyone is doing ok and if you are not well that is ok too because you don’t have to be ok all the time as you are only human. Again I will say if anyone wants to join my petition to add another day to the weekend please let me know! Anxiety is already whispering in my ear telling all sorts of fucked up lies and the storm of depression is still raging on above but it is not as dark as was a few weeks ago, as more light is getting in each day. I can feel the dark thoughts in the rain getting lighter and the dramatic thunder and lightning is starting to fade into the background.
Even though going through a low mood cycle of depression is fucking awful it is true in what they say. A storm can wash away the path and leave it clear. For me, I release that some things in my life right now are really fucking with me mentally and without the storm coming to wash the surface to show me what is going on underneath, then I still wouldn’t be able to see the misery I have been keeping myself in.
Which leads me to my tip of the day –
Turning can’t into why the fuck not!
I must tell myself “I can’t” at least 50 times a day, it is like a mental reflex anytime something comes my way that looks like it would be hard. I can’t get up I don’t want to face the world, I can’t make friends I am not a likable person, I can’t move forward it is too fucking hard. This phrase goes around my head all the time no wonder I am a bit of a negative Nancy!
Why can’t I do those things?
FEAR! Scared of being rejected, scared of failing, scared of not being good enough and scared that I’m too fucking broken I won’t be able to survive another fall.
By staying in my comfort zone I am keeping myself safe but I am also keeping myself from responding back to “I can’t” with “why the fuck not!”
We all want to be heard in this world to be acknowledged for the things we can do but how can we expect the world to hear if we don’t hear our own voice.
So it is time to turn some of the “I can’t” into why the fuck not! Even though the comfort zone keeps us safe it will slowly just turn into a prison. We fight so hard warriors, why keep ourself locked up, we will make mistakes we will fall but we also will achieve and grow, so why the fuck not!
