I Swore Myself I’d Leave Myself Alone……

For those wondering, this line is from one of my favorite songs by one of my all time favorite artists, i’ve talked about her before, Alexz Johnson, not sure if that rings a bell, but…..the last time I talked about her, was when I was talking about her latest song called Weight, it’s been a while since I actually listened to that song, now she’s got new ones, plus a new album, that I still haven’t heard…..there’s a lot of songs from the artists I listen to that I need to check out, I always think of listening to them, but I never really get around to it, I might have to pick a day to just sit and have a listen to them.

But enough about music talk, that’s not actually where it was going….I just thought i’d have a chat about things if that’s alright…..if you do want to talk about music do let me know and i’ll make sure to write a separate post focusing on that……if you’re curious to check out the post that I mentioned you can find it here: Now Playing….Weight By Alexz Johnson

Anyway let’s have a chat shall we!?…..okay so i’m going to be honest i’m not really sure what i’m planning on talking about, I just know that i’d like to chat a bit, now normally i’d express the things i’m wanting to express, but maybe we should do it a little differently, how about we talk on the line of Alexz’s song careless and it’s meaning, now when you look at it, you’d say it’s pretty self explanatory right!? Yeah well i’d say so too, anytime I hear this song and this line comes up in the song, I always feel it and it’s because it’s a relatable line, most of us don’t know how to leave ourselves alone or better yet ease up on ourselves, we’re always so harsh for some reason.

I mean i’m sure that reason is to make sure we’re our best self, which is great, but we always tend to be the most harsh when we know we’re already feeling a certain way, it’s like even when we know we should shape up and get over our feelings, we’re still harsh about it, saying things like “you’re always doing that” “why can’t you just stop thinking so hard” and so on and it always feels like there’s two versions of ourselves the being that we are, but also this other person whose meant to be there to keep us moving or at least does they’re best to keep us on our feet……

Now we all know the saying on “tough love” and for some it works, but others not always, I mean why do we always think being judgmental and scolding ourselves is the best thing to do!? Why can’t we instead be a little patient with ourselves!? If there’s a moment where we’re feeling agitated, emotional and other non great feelings, why can’t we support ourselves for a moment and just allow ourselves to feel!?

This might sound confusing and may not make much sense……but what I mean is, we shouldn’t go screaming at ourselves because we’re feeling a certain way and we shouldn’t go judging ourselves either, getting more upset with ourselves especially when we’re already upset, doesn’t really fix things does it!? If anything it only makes us more upset,

because there’s more pressure being added, now sure pressure is apart of life, but do we really need to give ourselves more pressure!? We have to be better at being patient with ourselves and not be so harsh with the things we do, especially with how we handle our emotions and thoughts, because those are the big things that really can get to us, if we let it…….

I think instead of going for the attack, the best way to handle those moments, is to just be more aware and do our best to make sure we don’t overload and if we know we need a moment to release thoughts, emotions and so fourth, we just gotta let ourselves have that moment, but we also shouldn’t allow ourselves to get wrapped in it for too long,

Just take it as going for a walk or hiking of some sort, take that moment, but don’t allow it to overtake you when you need it and also just patience……we may need to take this line of Alexz’s song as a reminder for the times we go to be harsh to ourselves, but stop because we’re having to remember to be aware not to, maybe if we do that, we’d see a bit of a difference.

But that’s all I have, now before we close this off, I just wanted to share that, there’s a new video on my channel if you’re interested, I uploaded it Wednesday, since we’re getting close to midnight here, i’m just having a bit of a chat, but if you want to check that out, you can find it here: 7pm With A Different View but anyway I should probably head to sleep now, seeing as it’s now midnight, I hope you all are well and you guys have a good night.

All The Love ❤ ❤

Now Playing: Keep Your Head Up By Andy Grammer

I’ve been coming across this song a bit more these days, I rarely listen to it unless i’m listening to the songs off my phone and even then I don’t hear it very often, I think it only tends to come on when i’m in a low mood and that’s probably the reason it finds it’s way through my shuffle whenever i’m listening to the music on my phone and not on Spotify or Youtube…….

Even though I rarely hear it, I would still consider it a favorite of mine, all time favorite……maybe i’m not sure, but it is a song that I really like and also one that I find myself singing along to whenever I hear it, now I know Andy Grammer has a lot of songs, but I only know I believe two songs from him, this one and Honey I’m Good, for all I know though, I might’ve heard his other ones too, but haven’t realized it, but I really do like this song

It’s one of those songs where if you’re ever feeling a little doubtful with what you’re doing or with things in general, listening to this song can really help as a mood booster and give you that bit of confidence and some reassurance that regardless to how we may feel and how we think most of the time, we shouldn’t let the negatives get to us so much…….

With this song you really can appreciate the lyrics to what Andy has written here, it’s a reminder that no matter how rough things can get and no matter what we may say to ourselves and think, we should always keep our heads up and find a way to look towards the positives and just do our best to keep going, as well as trust that it’ll all be alright and will all work out in the end.

Now that all being said it’s not always easy to do those things, but as long as we try and are mindful with how we think and feel, we’ll find that it’s not always so hard, it’s just the knowing and awareness of it, as well as allowing ourselves to be okay and accept that everything is process and whatever progress we make big or small, everything will turn out alright, we just have to do our best to keep going and keep our heads from looking towards the ground too much, it may take some reminding, but know that’s okay!!

Here’s the song if you guys want to listen to it: Keep Your Head Up By Andy Grammer it’s an old song, but it’s still pretty darn good if you ask me……I hope all of you all are having a good weekend and are all well!!

All The Love ❤ ❤
