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 going through a thing at the moment where I can’t help come to the conclusion that I am the monster. What do all these bad things have in common… me. I know that I am probably overthinking things and that may be the case for most of it but I do believe that I have been molded by my past and the person that I am is not an easy person to get along with. I am cynical, moody, untrustworthy, sarcastic and that is not a positive mix at times. My partner is the opposite to me, he is laid back, calm, trusting and forgiving. This is where we can clash because he is not able to see things from my point of view and I am not able to see things from his but we can respect each others point of views. The things are I am starting to see that I am more damaged then I thought I was and that is not necessarily a bad thing though, it just means that there are things I need to pay attention too and learn that damaged doesn’t mean unloveable.
So today’s tip of the day is –
Don’t waste your time.
We have all been there, haven’t we, waiting for something to figure out. Whether it has been a relationship, a work situation or a personal situation, we can spend a lot of time sometimes just waiting. What happens though when you are waiting on something? Overthinking kick in, which then has a ripple effect by activating anxiety, depression, anger, and hopelessness. I am not saying if the situation is important to forget about it all together and move on, no what I am saying is that a watched pot never boils. Sometimes my I can trigger my anxiety and my depression by just overthinking a situation and instead of leaving that situation be. Sometimes we can make things worse by putting all of our focus on it. I certainly been guilty of putting too much focus on my anxiety or bipolar and end up having a rough time with it. We still need to live life to our fullest and how can we do that when we are using up all of our energy on things that don’t need our full energy at times.
Also when we step away from something that we are trying to figure out that break away or distraction from it may be the answer we were looking for or give us chance to find an answer or solution to that situation.
What I am trying to say don’t put your life on pause farthings that don’t necessarily need you to do that for a time is a precious thing.
