There are days when we’re sad, angry, disappointed or simply unable to smile. Those days are as much a part of us as the good ones, where we are able to forget about our problems, work towards our goals and stay in touch with ourselves.
It is in times of gloominess where we don’t feel good about ourselves, our lives and things around us, that we sometimes slip into situations which end up negatively. Many times, I’ve found myself being rude to family members, friends or even my partner, not because they’d actually done something wrong but simply because I was angry or upset about something else. I’ve often let fear, anxiety and depression speak for me and I’ve often regretted words I’ve said in the heat of the moment. Self-control isn’t easy when your heart is broken, or your confidence is damaged and sometimes we say things we don’t mean to people that matter to us the most. As humans, we make those mistakes but it’s also our duty to work on avoiding them the next time we see ourselves go down that rabbit hole.
Those around us aren’t responsible for our pain most of the times, but we tend to take it out on them because they’re in the wrong place at the wrong time. We feel guilty afterwards and that starts a new cycle filled with negativity that makes us feel even worse. Soooooooo, let’s make it stop! Take deep breaths and work on the words you mean to speak even if sometimes it’s hard. Take yourself out of that situation and ask for space if you need it. People can’t read your mind and will often try to offer you the support they believe you require when you might actually want the opposite.
Be kind to those around you because they’re just trying to help and they might be going through their own stuff as well. Be kinder than you feel even if it hurts a little because kindness will get you a whole lot further than your negative impulses. Appreciate your family, friends and loved ones and be brave enough to say ‘I need your support’ as well as ‘I’m sorry I hurt your feelings’ if you ever screw up because of something going on in your life.
Keep people close and use your support system when you need it!
