Firstly want to start off by saying I hope you’re all okay and are enjoying December so far! With christmas almost upon us I was slightly reluctant to write this post as I didn’t want to write any negative posts to keep up the christmas cheer.
So I kinda just wanted to have a little chat, as this is my little spot on the internet meaning I can’t write about anything I wish (obviously within reason haha!). But if you read my blog regularly in my ‘Red Puffa’ post a few weeks back you may have noticed that some crappy things have been happening in my life at the moment and I am still not ready to talk about what it is as such but I thought I would do a little post on how to get through some of the tough days life presents us with.
Right so first thing is first, I am in no way perfect and this doesn’t always work for me, but when it does honestly my head clears so much and I can get on with my day so much better
1 – Surround yourself with amazing people…
So this is such a key thing. Being around friends and family who support you and listen to you is the most vital thing. I know some people who don’t speak to anyone about anything. But honestly talking to people helps. It doesn’t make you feel so alone in whatever you are struggling with! Plus if they really are your friends they will be there for you no matter what!
2 – Its okay to cry…
This one might be a bit much for people to handle, but we are all human so crying is just an emotion that we all go through and shouldn’t be ashamed of! I think once you realise that you don’t have to hold back your feelings and that crying is normal, by letting it out you actually feel better!
3 – Keep distracted…
People keep busy in different ways, but you just have to do whatever makes you happy and be selfish. Because at the end of the day if you’re happy and doing things you love life is so much better! Just take the time for yourself to discover what makes you happy! For me its music so currently I’m getting back into music, my blog and my youtube! But for some others it might be going out with friends and things like that!
4 – Keep a journal…
So this is something Ive only recently started, but oh my has this helped me. Its a way of writing down all your thoughts and feelings without worrying if anyone will see them. Its completely your own space. For instance if you hate talking to people about certain things it can be your route to escape and talk about your feelings and write them down in a journal/diary. This actually really helps release any feelings that have been bottled up and I would recommend this to anyone going through any tough times or even on just the bad days, but don’t forget to write the good things as well! Someone once told me that for everything negative you should write something positive, which is a great way to think and keep you going on those rubbish days!
5 – Just be yourself…
This one may be a little broad, but my oh my is this an important one. If you can’t enjoy yourself then will you ever truly be happy those are my thoughts anyway. People who love you will except you for who you are and will love you for the way you are. The song ‘Just the way you are’ by Bruno Mars comes into mind in this point and it is so important! Do not be afraid to be yourself EVER! Just do what you enjoy and be kind. Always be kind to others and treat them the way you would want to be treat.
So to summarise this little post, just think about all the other good things in your life and don’t always focus on the negatives. And believe me I know this is a lot harder said than done and we have all been there. Breakdowns are nothing to be ashamed of and we all learn from them! Don’t be afraid to ask for help there are so many people that care about you and want you to be happy! And finally remember that they are NOT ALL BAD DAYS! We all have crappy days when we don’t think there is any point in things anymore, but what you need to remember is that the good days are there too!
I hope you all enjoyed this post and that it wasn’t too sad! If you want similar posts like this then please give the post a little like!!
Stay happy and be yourself,
Love Lucy x
