Did you ever type out a full blog post and then contemplate deleting it entirely? Welp. Today is one of those days. I'm unsure if I want to really share the things going on in my head, but hey - I figure that there may be someone else out there who is having the same thoughts.
I'd be lying if I said I wasn't mentally struggling a bit lately. Sure - 90% of the time I am as
happy as a clam. I'm fortunate to have a generally positive, resilient mindset. I'm fortunate to be self-aware. There is however a small 10% of the time I am not feeling so hot, and
it freaking packs punch.
Some days I feel severely defeated. Some days I just want to drop everything and recede into a "safe" corner - remove all of the current variables and be a "normal" kid my age. But I know that is not the solution. I'm not one to throw in the towel. I have to keep in mind that a lot of this stress is eustress, which is the good kind of stress. A lot of good things will stem from it.
Keep surrounding yourself with people who genuinely care about you. Keep working hard. Keep treating yourself with respect. Keep thinking out loud (and blogging about it, haha). Do whatever it takes to keep you focused. Everything passes with time.
Happy Monday, friends ♥︎
