I’d say I’m a pretty positive person and I often say that life is a beautiful thing that we shouldn’t take for granted. But what do you do when certain parts of your life just suck?! You count your blessings and for the most part things are okay but there are those moments, those people, those insecurities, those failures that just wont leave you alone. You can’t shake the negative thoughts. You spend shorts periods (or long periods) of time sulking in your own misery. Your relationships might suffer. Your productivity might go down. Your mood is constantly changing and you have a hard time gaining control.
LIFE…. Whether the big things go wrong or the little things don’t go right.
Sometimes it really just sucks. It’s confusing and often times annoying to feel such sadness, anger and anxiety about how it will all turn out. I’m a realist. I know that my life is pretty wonderful. But I still have my days and those days are no fun. Things don’t always happen for me the way I want them to. I’ve experience hard times. I’ve known the pain of a broken heart. I still struggle with acceptance. I’m constantly looking for ways to pull myself out of the depths of my own despair but it’s nice to share thoughts, opinions and advice on what to do when life just simply sucks. Sometimes I feel like I’m being dramatic but then I look at the situations I’m in or the people who still affect my emotional stability and I know that dramatic isn’t the word to describe my feelings. I know that many of you have felt this way as well about your own personal experiences and your own life.
My best medicine right now is running and a little bit of writing, (hence this blog post) I’d love to hear about yours. Please share with me what you do when things go left and any other encouraging words you have for others who experience those times in life as well. Sometimes it’s just nice to hear the words of others who feel something similar to you.
