What To Do When The World's Against You.

Wednesday, 27 February 2019

I'm sure we all know the feeling of when you just can't help but think the world and everyone in it is completely against you, it's a natural human thought we will all have a few times in our lives. However some people will feel it a lot more than others and it can really get you down if you let it take over your mindset too much which is a straight up cause for trouble. I mean I know perfectly well that the world isn't against me and it's all just in my imagination, but when everything you could possibly think of is going wrong it can definitely get you down and make you feel like everything isn't worth it, and right now I know this feeling too well. I don't want to feel like I do, no one does, so today I thought I'd share a few ways to help you out when you're feeling like this, but remember that you aren't alone.

Sometimes giving up feels like a good idea. Sometimes loads of small things can go wrong but once you add everything up into one it creates a much bigger picture, and not exactly a positive one at that. I'm not going to share every puzzle piece that goes on in my life because not only is it personal but there's no point, this is a common feeling and everyone has their own reasons as to why they feel the way that they do, so my job here is to help you overcome it just like i'm trying to. 

Take care of yourself. This is hands down the most important thing I could possibly think of, it may seem like nothing but it really is so vital. Make sure you're getting enough sleep at night (around 8 hours is recommended), and I don't mean going to bed at weird times and waking up in the middle of the afternoon, try to sleep at a reasonable time so you can wake up in the morning feeling refreshed. I know it's hard but trust me it's so worth it! Get enough exercise, eat healthily to a certain extent (trust me I'm not making you give up pizza or ice cream here don't worry, but just don't go too over the top with it!) They may seem so small and pointless but they really aren't, taking care of yourself and your body is key. Drink more water, do something you love whether it's watching a certain TV show, reading a book or seeing someone that makes you happy, just do things you enjoy and that you love to do and try to realise that self care is so so so important!

There's a quote that I've recently remembered by the one and only Winston Churchill - "If you're going through hell, keep going" and I feel like we could all learn something from it! When life gets tough it's easy to give up, I mean sometimes I feel like i'm just constantly trying and never getting anywhere and it's really off putting, I have moments when I just think I give up. I'm done, What's the point? If i'm never getting anywhere and just walking into the same old wall every time then really what is the damn point? But at the end of the day what is giving up going to do? I know it feels like keeping going isn't working but what are you going to get out of giving up? Okay yeah I'll admit it's the easiest and less painful option but it's the wrong one. No one said life was easy and I'm sure by now we all know it isn't, but giving up is never the answer. I live by this quote now and I think about it every single day when I want to give up (so a daily basis hah) but it really does help. One day all of these bad things will be over and all of the good stuff will feel so much better and you'll be thankful that you carried on trying, even if it felt like hell.

I know this was kind of short but do these things and I promise you that you will feel better, I know these won't take all of your problems away but they may be able to help you realise that the world isn't against you, there's no such thing.
