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. I am one excited human right now! I am about to go and see Avengers End Game in a few hours and I was supposed to have a nap today as I will be seeing a midnight showing but I have been occupied with my painting. Which to be honest has been a welcome distraction from the low mood that is hovering above my head right now. I had one of those days yesterday where it just all felt too much, that point where you question yourself. What am I fighting for? It is not just mental illness I am fighting, it is also my eye condition as well. The thing is we all get days like this where the fight feels too much but one of the things we can do that can help win that battle is not to ignore that feeling…
Today’s tip of the day is –
Splashing in the puddles of sadness.
I think it is ok to be sad sometimes, I think it is ok to be angry sometimes and also to feel hard done by. When we try and push those feelings down when they are bubbling up, we can cause something worse. It is about finding that balances and not dwelling on the sadness, which I will say is a hard thing to do. Just think as it as splashing in the puddles that was created by the rain from the dark cloud of depression. Be careful of the big puddles as we don’t know how deep they are and you could jump in and be up to your eyeballs in sadness. Those small puddles of sadness where you can see the bottom are the ones you shouldn’t feel bad about splashing around in. As how can we aspect to embrace who we are and know how to deal with the bad things if we avoid every puddle.
