As I am sat here writing this, I have just had a shower after getting in from work and have stepped on the scales to see that I am 3 pounds heavier than I was last week which has really pissed me off. My weight and how I look is probably the main reason I find myself beating myself up all of the time, and it really has to stop. I know this is just about my appearance, but I am well and truly sick of it, but the only person I can blame is myself.
The reason for this blog post is not to feel sorry myself but to get myself to snap out of this. I always get so worked up over the little things and always think ‘woe is me’, when In fact there is so much else going on in the world! I am can really be selfish at times, and really flip out over the smallest of things, my weight, my boyfriend eating all the cheese, the traffic on the way home.
I sometimes really need to look at the bigger picture and think about what I do have, instead of what I don’t have, I have a beautiful little home, a boyfriend who tolerates me, a good job and my health!
I think we can all say we get caught up in the stupidest of little things which affect our whole mood for the day, and that is okay, but why worry about it? I know that it can be hard to snap out of it, but we should all be looking at the bigger picture especially as there is so much else going on in the world. I just thought that I would try and offer some support if you are feeling low at the moment.
Appreciate What You Have Got
I am the first person to forget what I actually have, and this often happens after any minor inconvenience I face. However, I am a very lucky person when it comes to my wonderful boyfriend who supports me through everything, my family, my job and our house; we have everything we need. I know there are so many other people worse off in the world, and sometimes you just have to look at the bigger picture. When you are feeling down, try and take a moment to yourself, indulge in some self-care and just relax.
It’s Okay Not To Be Okay
Again, I find myself feeling down more often than I care to admit as I let so many little things get to me. I am a massive overthinker and have to analyse every situation; I end up getting so worked up. I’m not saying you can’t be upset over something, but try not to beat yourself up with things that are out of your control; however, if you can do something, then do it!
If you want to have a shower cry (I’m pretty partial to one of these), or just want some time to yourself to calm down and reevaluate a situation then do it! Sometimes taking a moment to breathe or let your emotions out can work absolute wonders.
Life Can Be Tough
Life can be incredibly tough, and what we find hard personally someone else might just think you are being silly. I get called dramatic all of the time (mainly because I am), but a lot of the time I am not and when I am truly upset about something I find it hard to speak to anyone, and I find it SO hard to pick myself up. Life is tough, but we always find our way to get through it at some point!
However, I promised myself this year that I was going to try and be more positive, and to be fair I have, but I need to stop things like my weight affecting my mood so much! So, here’s to more positive vibes and hopefully losing the 4-stone I need to! I think it is nice to speak about this issues, as it really makes my feel so much better!
