Hello readers. You might have noticed a pattern on my blog lately. I've been posting about life and thoughts. I'm not someone who will write about perfectness of things when I'm not feeling them. I write because that's my portal to express myself. So when I'm sad, I write something like 'Why Do Bad Things Happen To Good People?'. When I'm confused I write about overcoming dilemmas. When I see people fighting, I write an apology. Right now I'm feeling exhausted all the time. Amid all this, I'm learning how to keep myself normal.
People can be bizarre and pessimistic. Circumstances can be unfortunate and unreasonable. Environment can be unsupportive and gloomy. The future can be bare and bleak. There will be times when all you want to do is scream at the top of your voice. There will be times when all you want to do is not think. There will be times when you feel numb and clueless. There will also be times when you'll wish a start over. There are just so many random things which cause so many random emotions. Among those many random emotions might be some which might really destroy you. And you can't let that happen. You can't let those feelings take over yourself.
You have come so far. There must have been multiple times when you felt like things are terrible. But, eventually they come around and you celebrate happiness. This is just a phase which is going to be over. If you know this already, learn to believe it. Once you trust yourself, everything will be all right. This is what I've been doing to love myself amid all the random happenings around me.
1. Taylor Swift.
No matter what happens in my life, there's always a Taylor Swift song that explains it. There's no denying that I'm a hardcore swiftie. When I listen to her songs, I actually feel better. If I'm feeling lonely or broken, I just shake it off. The way I sing and dance to 'Blank Space', they'll tell you I'm insane. Everything apart, Taylor is a goddess. And after listening to her music, my mood changes and I feel much more optimistic about myself. So haters gonna hate, heart-breakers gonna break and fakers gonna fake. I'm just gonna shake it off!
Today I logged on to my Pinterest account. It always helps. These great images combined with meaningful words is a great inspiration. There's always that one quote that catches your attention and you can't stop obsessing over it. I read this: "She lost him. But she found herself. And somehow that was everything." After reading this, I was hooked and spent half an hour reading quotes. You can check out my quotes board which has some amazing stuff. They will make your day and feel grateful for your life.
3. Stop Thinking.
I am someone who thinks and over-thinks practically everything. So when you start doing that, mostly it's all negative things that lead the way. It's okay to just stop thinking. It's perfectly normal to just chill and leave out all the complications. Just pause. Pamper yourself with an ice cream. Watch something funny. Talk to people who matter to you. And then when you have to think about it, stay rational. I believed that I have to think about everything. But now, I just pause all the nonsensical stuff, watch a few episodes of FRIENDS and later come back to it. By then, the gravity of the matter seems smaller and better to tackle. So you'll start loving yourself when you understand that.
Doing your hobby is the best way to love yourself. Read. Write. Watch TV. Listen to music. Play games. Cook. Just do whatever that makes you feel like yourself. When you do that thing which fills that incompleteness within yourself, you will love how amazing your life is. You will love yourself.
Whatever phase you're stuck onto.. whatever complications you're going through.. whatever you feel.. just remember that you are awesome. You don't always need another person to fall in love with. Just be in love with yourself and other things will fall your way.
