Welcome back to crazy little things! I hope everyone is doing ok and if you are not, well that is ok too, as you don’t have to be ok all the time as you are only human. When I wanted to let go of this drama that surrounded my life, all it seemed to do was create more. So when people go all Elsa from Frozen on you and tell you to just let it go? Remember to ask for an instruction manual on that shit because it really ain’t that easy. They say that certain people can be drama magnets, it feels more like velcro then magnetism to me. Why?
Well, when I try to push away the drama more seems to get attached to me, which then gets tangled with the drama I was trying to push away. When we manage to remove the drama, it can be a slow and painful process. Well maybe that is one of the meanings of life we are supposed to learn, the things that are the hardest and most painful things to let go are the things that may mark us in in the process but shape us into something stronger in the end.
Who the fuck knows? Just putting it out there.
If only people listened.
I have a thing about not being listened too, I feel I spent a lot of my life not being listened too, so when I feel that no one is listening to me, it triggers me, big fucking time. Listening isn’t as easy as it seems though. Listening doesn’t mean the person wants your advice, or for you to tell them things will get better and not judge what they are saying. Listening can be just about acknowledging that person and making them feel heard.
That’s all I ever wanted was just to be heard. We have the world at our fingertips and we also have a world full of lonely people because we are expected to deal with our own shit because we have the internet now. Most people will google their symptoms before going to see a doctor, some people seek friendship online because they can’t seem to make connections with people in the real world, and also some people write a blog because they just want to be heard (me).
We shouldn’t be like this. We need to find the time to listen to one another, as listening has the power to give someone a voice.
