We should be positive about our lives and stuff. But sometimes we get em rough days, too. Actually, kinda often. And after all, our only desired thing is to lay in bed, away from the whole entire world, with a huuuge box of chocolates and cry while watching Netflix. Admit it.
But after such emotional earthquakes comes that killing sense of guilt. It feels that we’re not worth it all, damn, we’ve given up just cause of that small trouble. Which wasn’t probably unsolvable. And this feeling messes up everything, including our perception of goals. And we just let it go, cause what’s the matter, we’re worthless, we’re useless, we’re not loved and…
It’s time to stop now. Really. Stop it. It’s impossible to show your worth. You’re amazing and great. You just need a small encouragement and probably few tips how to avoid bad consequences of those small mental hurricanes.
I’ve had one recently. It was caused by one of my closest friends and pretty unexpected. I can’t express the anger I was feeling at that moment. I felt betrayed and just wanted the whole world to stop. But now I see, that this small crisis didn’t give me any negative outcomes (well, except that lost friend, but it doesn’t even count imo).
So I’m sharing these few tips who helped me few days ago to not to freak out and stay on the track. I sincerely hope this will help you.
- First of all, clean up your kitchen before it all. And no, I don’t mean the sink corrosion. I mean those ’emergency’ snacks in the last drawer, small bucket of chocolate ice cream and salted crackers. Cravings hit us kinda often, so instead of those unhealthy ones, fill up your kitchen with fruits and nuts. I know, it’s a torture, but after some time you’ll love em.
2. Then get some motivation from a reliable source. Which could help you to stay on a track, block those ‘I’m not worth it’ thoughts and not to hit the kitchen.
3. If too much of bad energy while that crisis, use your anger in a physical activity. I usually do squats in such situations. This helps me to a)express my fury in a great way; and b)shape my lower part little more. In my recent breakdown I did 500 squats and I’m so glad about it.
4. You can also go to sleep. In my lovely country – Lithuania – which celebrated its restoration of 100 years yesterday, we have a great idiom – ‘morning is wiser than the evening’. And it’s pretty true. In the morning the whole crisis might seem twice less serious and important. And you’ll avoid overeating or any other self harm.
Keep your head up no matter what. Love y’all ♥
