Clutter is someone with anxiety’s worst nightmare.
A giant mess, an untidy house, a bedroom full of unwashed clothes on the floor…
Whatever the clutter is, it makes your anxiety much, much worse. Anxiety and clutter go hand in hand like water in oil. They don’t mix at all. And along the way it causes mental anguish that can make your mental health a lot more worse than you expected.
There’s a powerful connection between anxiety and clutter, and it’s not good on the anxiety end.
The world is becoming more and more hateful, at least from what I’ve seen. People are always angry about something, and they’re taking it out on people who may not have anything to do with the problem. I know the lockdowns have been a factor in this. You can only force people into lack of socialization for so long before they start to boil over and start getting angry.
Humans are social creatures, and not having the ability to socialize with others, especially in person, it really wreaks havoc on our psyche.
The recent cancel culture, callout culture, and the political divide has seemingly cause more people to see the world in black and white, with an us v. them view on the world.
It’s causing a lot of problems. It seems whenever I go on social media all there is is hate flowing through the internet. People are less inclined to talk to people with opposing views, and view them more as evil or the “enemy”.
We need to have more positivity in life and embrace more of the little moments in life that make it much more worth living for.
I know I’ve always wanted to receive a love letter from a potential or current partner. I’ve also written my fair share of them myself, but always to other people. That’s fine and all, but with Valentine’s Day coming up, I thought it would be a great idea to write myself a love letter!
If you don’t get the love letter you’re looking for, why not write one yourself? Simple, right?
Writing yourself a love letter can be greatly beneficial, especially to those with low self esteem or need a confidence boost. You’ll be writing yourself a letter about all the great thing you do, how wonderful you are, and why you deserve love.
So for this Valentine’s Day, consider writing yourself a love letter instead of waiting for that special someone to do if for you.
Working at a job you hate is exhausting. Usually you’re doing things you don’t like, aren’t good at, or both.
My current position is technically a job I hate. I want out of this job as soon as I can, so I’m taking the steps to do so and things look promising.
Once you realize you’re in a job you hate you have to take some immediate steps to get yourself out of that position and into one you actually like. Depending on how the job market is doing, it might be easier or harder to find a new job. Right now, it’s kind of hard to find a job because a lot of businesses were closed due to the pandemic.
However, companies having to create COVID related teams and taskforces for things that the pandemic have caused in whatever sector they’re in is causing more jobs so it’s balancing out, sort of.
So when you’re in a job you hate you have a few steps you have to take to get yourself out of that position.
Everyone has an inner child. The only difference is that some people try to ignore that inner child and others embrace it.
Growing up I was always told I needed to “grow up” and “be less of a baby” for having certain likes, interests, and hobbies. I was told this by my family.
As a child.
Doesn’t make any sense to me, but I spent a lot of my childhood thinking the things I like and the stuff I was doing was wrong, that I needed to be “more of an adult” and like things adults liked instead of things kids liked. I think this started around as young as 10, but I could be wrong. I don’t have much of a memory of my childhood.
But embracing your inner child, especially as an adult, is absolutely more than okay. In fact, I’d say you probably should do it more often than not!
Friends with benefits is an interesting situation to land yourself in. Not everyone is meant to be in that kind of situation, and a lot of the times, when you spend a large amount of intimate time with someone you can potentially end up with romantic feelings for them.
This is a common problem that happens with a strictly sex kind of relationship. You’re spending all this intimate time with another person, it’s not wonder you’ve fallen for them, right?
Unfortunately not ever friends with benefits situation is meant to move on to something more meaningful. And that’s okay. But you need to figure out a few things before you try to take thing to the next level.
I’ve heard this in various different ways, but the main point to take away is “you need to have a good relationship with yourself before you have a relationship with anyone else”. And that is very good advice.
If you have a bad relationship with yourself you’re more prone to jealousy, insecurity, and causing rifts with your partner. These things can seriously harm a relationship to the point of breaking up.
These things come out the most when you love someone and you don’t want to let them go.
When you don’t have a good relationship with yourself, you’re not mentally ready to have someone else come into that space with you. It’s hard to admit at times, but I find that when I have problems regarding relationships it’s because I’ve been neglecting the relationship I have with myself.
This is going to be an update and a ramble about how I’m feeling right now. If this isn’t something you’re interested in, then I’m sorry, this isn’t for you. Eventually I’ll be able to get back to posting regularly but right now I just can’t.
Both physically from my job and mentally from what’s been going on in the world.
Overeating is something that’s really been plaguing me recently.
It’s my latest addiction in a cycle of addictions of my life, and it’s causing a lot of problems. Besides the weight gain, I don’t like how I’m not in control of my own body and my own self. I’m at the mercy of the food I have in my house and that’s not a good thing.
If you’re like me and tend to over eat when you have the chance to, the holidays aren’t a good time for you. Holidays are a time for friends, family, and food. Everyone’s three favorite “F”s.
But when food is such a pain for you, how do you prevent overeating during the holidays?
