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. You know how I said last time that I feel like I am life’s personal joke right now; well actually I think it is more like life is plain old just bloody picking on me. These last few days have been fucking ridiculous, the only lucky thing really has been my strength because I haven’t spiraled downwards into a depression because trust me I could of. I am ready for this week to be over so I can just take a breather and gather myself again because I feel like I am just being pushed every step forward and it is fucking exhausting to carry on standing upright instead of just falling down. Am I the only one having a week like this? And if you have experienced a week where everything seems to be going wrong, how do you do with it?
But hey ho I am still good spirits as it has got to a point where the tears have turned into laughter because I don’t feel like wasting any more tears on this week. Plus if you can’t laugh at yourself then you are always going to feel like the butt of every joke.
So let’s move on to my tip of the day –
We don’t always have to lose our shit!
I think we all can go through points every now and then when you feel like life is punching you in the face repeatedly. Let’s face it life is not all roses and sunshine, it can be fucking hard. That is when the hard points can turn into hard days and then hard weeks and before know it you are contemplating selling all your worldly possessions and moving to a desert island.
The thing is sometimes we have to pick and choose the right battles to fight back. Is it worth wasting energy on fighting back over a broken phone charger, no. Is worth losing your shit over missing a bus, no. It is a lot of wasted energy that may be more important to use on something harder down the line.
This is something I need to learn to do because these are things I lose my shit over all the time and at the end of it I always come out feeling worse then I did before. So instead of picking a fight every time, be the bigger person and walk away. Instead of losing your shit and letting the bitch of anxiety through the door because that’s what she wants you to do, do something that could take your mind of it. Self-care is not just for when you are struggling, self-care is a brilliant tool that can be used for many different reasons. As sometimes the best reaction is no reaction at all.
