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. This week has not started good, not bad, just breezy. I didn’t want to to say normal as my life and normal do not belong in the same sentence. Considering I was dreading going into this week considering I just had a week off and I have been questioning my career, I really feel I am starting to find my rhythm this week. A part of me feels like I am jinxing myself and the bitch of anxiety and the dark cloud of depression are rubbing their hands with glee while plotting a diabolic plan behind my back but that’s just typical me, I’m cynical.
I think when we are able to stop a mental illness and mental health conditions from having the spotlight in our lives, we really can shine in that spotlight. I’m just trying to live instead of just surviving the days, as I feel I have wasted so much time in just getting by the skin of my teeth. I am fully aware that this doesn’t mean I am cured of bipolar and anxiety and my other issues, no, this is me just accepting that those things do not have to dominate my existence.
Today’s tip of the day is
Not everything comes down to winners and losers.
Life is not about success, mental illness is not a competition and tea is the best drink in the world. These are a few of my opinions, you may not agree with them but does that make them wrong or right?
In your eyes, you could think what I say on here is a big pile of garbage but others may not. I don’t claim to be a know it all (no matter what my boyfriend thinks), I am just one human with an opinion. Opinions are like the farts of the world, poof there is another one and another. Some are good and some are so bad they stink up the internet. We all have them and we have all dealt with people whose farts, no, I mean opinions have completely clashed with our own. That doesn’t always mean there has to be a wrong or right person in that situation.
If we can just try to learn to respect other peoples farts, shit sorry opinions, then maybe we could learn something from it, even if the lesson is that opinion is fucked up and you are so glad it is not in your head.
Mental illness and mental health have an endless amount of opinions about them these days and some of them are some right stinkers but there are also some ingenious ones. We can’t control the opinions of others but we can learn to control how we let them affect us.
