Close your eyes and breathe relax and breathe……it’s okay, you’re okay, we are okay. Don’t think that it’s not okay to feel the way you are feeling right now, it’s alright, everything’s alright, I know all these feelings are swirling around and it don’t quite feel all that nice, but it’s going to be fine!!
Don’t think that you shouldn’t feel what it is you’re feeling, they’re meant to come out, it may not make sense to why they’re coming out, but you’re having to release them for a reason……it’s been sitting there for quite some time now, it’s time to let them out…….just because it’s confusing considering how the days been, it’s been pretty alright yeah!?
I know you’re feeling sorry and guilty for letting whatever is going on out, but you shouldn’t be, we all need to let it out sometime, even if it doesn’t quite make sense to when it feels the need to come out, it’s time to heal, allow yourself to heal the way it’s happening and don’t be so hard on yourself about it, allow yourself to feel those emotions and know that it’s for a reason and it’s okay…..it’ll take some time, but be patient……
You’re doing alright, so there’s no need to stress yourself out about it, just trust that everything is going to be alright and it’ll all work out in time, trust yourself and believe in yourself as well, don’t fret it’s all going to be alright!! 🙂
It’s been a while since i’ve written down my thoughts…..kinda, not my actual thoughts just a simple write down, i’m sure you know what I mean.
*Takes a deep breath and releases* Maaan am I mentally all over the place today, it’s so easy I tell you haha…..all you have to do is let your mind go in a million one places and there you have it, scattered thoughts everywhere!! That’s how you do it, in case you’re wondering how to easily stress yourself out……it’s always like that ain’t it!? So easy to drive yourself mad, yet so difficult to keep yourself sane and calm…….
I made this here creation as I like to call them, a long while ago…….I was meant to use it after I made it, never really quite did though, I guess I felt it wasn’t the right moment or something I don’t know…..funny, I think my reasoning for making this was because I was having a day like today.
As you can probably see in the picture, there’s some words in a spiral, but they aren’t just any words, they’re lyrics to one of my favorite songs by one of my all time favorite bands who I actually wrote a post about the other day. The name of the song is called Take A Breath and it’s by of course…..One Direction…….I mean the Jonas Brothers *nervous laughs*
One Direction had 3 more years left before they went on the X factor, auditioned and would then later be formed into a band…..there goes my brain huh!?
Also you guys probably think I planned that, but trust me, I did not….. I went to say the Jonas Brothers and ended up saying One Direction instead, to myself, out loud, as I was writing it…..not kidding……and if you think it’s a one time thing, no that’s how my brain actually is at times, can’t help it.
Back to what I was talking about though…..this song is off their 2007 self titled album, but on the deluxe version of the album, it’s a really good song, it’s an early 2000’s kind of song of course, a little upbeat, but not too pop sound-ish, it has some edge to it, at least I think it does anyway…..if you’re a Jonas Brothers fan you’ll know what i’m talking about.
It’s one of those tunes that you listen to not only for that nostalgia feeling, but also when you need that reminder to breathe and relax a bit you know!? Try not to worry as much, it helps for a moment, but with the way our brains like to be, it can take a lot of reminding……
For me singing the lines, “Don’t forget to take a breath” plus the rest of the chorus, as well as the whole song……it works for the moment, plus it’s good to sing, I mean we all know there’s nothing like singing our favorite songs to help boost our moods a bit and make us feel a little better.
Here’s the song if you want to give it a listen: Take A Breath remember it’s by the Jonas Brothers NOT One Direction (this is a reminder to myself by the way……I honestly don’t know how I messed that one up, they’re my favorite band…..so is One Direction, but the Jonas Brothers are always first)
P.S. I feel like I might’ve shared this song with you guys before, but I also feel like I didn’t, if I did sorry, hope you don’t mind be sharing it again…..but if I haven’t, I hope you enjoy it or at least find it interesting if you do give it a listen!!
Pressure we all go through it, we all feel it, yet we don’t know why!? Okay maybe we know why, it’s because we either put it onto ourselves or we feel under pressure when it comes to trying to do things right or just trying to do everything all at once, which then leads us to stress out, feel anxious, become frustrated and sometimes it will even have us have a few breakdown at times. Feeling pressure isn’t always a bad thing, sometimes it can be a motivational and inspiring kind of thing, but even then we’ll always feel stressed out, because when we put a massive amount of pressure on ourselves it will start to effect us mentally and physically because we have a tendency to put more on ourselves then we know we should.
Now I talked about dealing with funks yesterday and in that I expressed about how we’re always trying to do things ourselves, we feel as though we can handle any problem without a problem and we’ll be fine, even if it’s something that we know deep down that we may need a little help with, we still chose the option to always do it alone. It’s a real mind boggle on why that is, maybe it could be because it’s our natural instinct, we’re born with this thing that makes us want to always handle things ourselves and I guess because that is, we’re always choosing the option to ask for help last and by us always choosing to do things without help, that’s where the pressure comes in.
We know we may need a little help, but we feel as though, no one can do things the way we do it so why even bother!? I mean we got this far with it so why should we ask for help now!? Asking for help isn’t a bad thing, some of us have in our minds that if we were to ask for help, it’ll make it seem like we can’t do it on our own, we’re not strong enough and it will even have us thinking we’re failures because we should’ve figured it out already and that’s why the pressure we put onto ourselves can get so heavy at times, because we’re constantly trying to prove to ourselves and to those around us that we can do it, but even though we are able to handle a lot of stuff, we too have to remember that we do have breaking points.
We’re not superhero’s and even if we were we’d still have breaking points, because even superhero’s have times when they can only handle, but so much. Asking for a little hand when you know that you need it or feel you need it, isn’t bad, it doesn’t make you seem less strong or make you a failure, it just means you’re human and you know that you can use a little help and support. We all need a little help and support, by us trying to handle everything on our own, we’re gonna end up running ourselves to the ground and you don’t ever want to have it where you’re burning yourself out.
When we put that much stress and pressure on ourselves, that’s where we really need to sit with ourselves and say “Hey look, I know we’re use to doing things alone and we’re use to carrying more than what we know we can, but I really think that we can use a little help with this, because if you haven’t noticed, we’re getting super frustrated and we’re stressing ourselves out, trying to do everything all at once, when we know deep down, we just can’t be bothered to deal with all of this” most of the time we’ll ignore our own inner voice that is telling us all of this, but maybe we should try listening to it sometimes, I think it knows what it’s talking about.
We’re always trying to make things so much harder for ourselves when in reality we don’t really need to, It’s okay to have someone there to help take a little of that pressure off from you, that way you can de stress a bit, relax, take a little breather, we don’t have to do everything ourselves. If you know that you need some help with something or you’re feeling super stressed out and are under a lot of pressure with trying to do everything all at once or just anything, step back a bit, take a deep breath and if you know deep down you can’t handle something on your own just ask for a little help, even if it’s just for a bit, you’ll feel so much better and you won’t feel as though you’re carrying a load of bricks in a backpack.
