Do you ever have days were you just wish you could crawl back into bed & try again tomorrow? Honestly, I’ve been feeling this way for almost two weeks now. I have felt unmotivated, unenergized, & completely incapable of completing any work tasks. Yep, I’m admitting it & sharing it with you all. NEWS FLASH, my life isn’t perfect & neither are my emotions or actions. Usually this feeling will only last a day or two for me & then I move out of my “funk” which is what I tend to call it. But this time it lasted for too long for me to handle or deal with, so I just chose not to. It’s as if my mind knew I needed to do things, but my body couldn’t connect & acknowledge that it needed to move. It was not a fun thing to live through over here. Call it what you want, it’s just something that sometimes tends to happen for me.
Have you ever been through this? Have you ever felt mentally debilitated or unable to make the day successful? I’m not here to diagnose you or tell you that something is wrong, but I am here to say that it’s okay to be real & talk about your struggles. Why don’t people talk about things? Why don’t people talk about things. If we talked about things more often I think we’d find out that a lot of people that don’t speak up about the darker times in their lives. I think that there are many of you & others out there who sometimes have to deal with not knowing how to deal with life some days.
It’s okay that this happens. You don’t have to slap yourself in the face with motivational quotes to wake yourself up out of the gloom & into the fake sunshine. I get it. Maybe this works for some people, but I can say from experience that this doesn’t work for us all. Sometimes what you need is just a break, a breather, to just be. And that’s okay. I repeat, that’s okay.
You don’t have to pretend to have it all together. You don’t have to act like some days aren’t harder than others. You can admit that there are moments that are tough & there are moments that are extremely tough. You are not weak for feeling this way. You are not broken just because you don’t feel whole. You are human, & you are strong & beautiful with a unique story to tell.
Use your voice to cry out for help, & use your voice so that others will know that they can use theirs too. Today, I am starting to feel a bit more into life & joy & doing things. It still feels a bit overwhelming, it still feels likes I’m not 100% back. But you have to start somewhere. You have to own up to who you are, the experiences you live through, & you have to know that you’ll come out on top no matter what.
Here’s to a new week for you & for me, & for all the somebody’s who sometimes feel like life is just too much to handle.
Always know that you are not alone in your every day struggles.
