Self esteem

Hey guys! We all have days where we’re feeling down and not good enough and exhausted and like nothing we do is ever good enough. I was having one today. My cure? Do up your hair, put on some makeup and take 1, 20, 500 selfies. As many as it takes to feel better. If you absolutely don’t like selfies. Write and write and write until you can’t write anymore. Do a couple squats or crunches, re watch your favorite movie, treat yourself to some ice cream. Do something, anything to reset. Whether it takes 5 minutes or 5 hours. You need to be ok mentally before anything else. You come first. So, even if you do nothing else today or if you’ve been struggling to get through the whole day, just do one thing for yourself. I promise you’ll feel better.

Love you guys!

Late night poem

Fuck me like you mean it

Like you need me.

Because I’m drowning again.

Making love to my insecurities.

I don’t believe it

Not for a minute.

I know you love me baby.

And I feel happy in your arms

But right now I’m slow dancing with my anxiety.

There’s tears coming in waves through my body.

And I don’t even know why

I thought I was happy.

Maybe it’s the depression talking

Or is that me?

It’s hard to tell the difference when I can’t even breath.

I distracted myself for a while

And maybe I was ok.

But it’s quiet and dark now

And nothing’s alright.

Do you think one day I’ll get over this?

Do you think it’s like the flu?

I don’t think that’s how it works

But god I hope so too.

I don’t want to feel this way

I want to live without a pause

Without stopping when the demons come to call

That must be what this is

Because It’s stealing my life away

And if this is just some game then I don’t want to play.

I’m laying here again with these tears on my face

I’m supposed to feel safe but I’m so tired of this place.

Would you like to switch bodies so I can escape for a while?

My mind is broken and I just want to be a carefree child

Do you want to hold me for a bit?

I think it could help

Even if I can’t be fixed.

Would you lay next to me in bed?

Please, save me from the monsters in my head.

Ocean Vacation

So I talk a lot about what makes me anxious and stressed everyday so I thought today I would go in a little bit of a different direction and talk about what helps me de-stress and relax.

I love listening to music and just relaxing and I also love reading books (Especially the Harry Potter books) but the thing that makes me the most happy and relaxed is going to the beach. Both of my grandmothers live in New Jersey and I’ve spent most of my life going to the beach for the summer and the boardwalk. I just feel so relaxed and at peace when I go to the ocean and listen to the waves and feel the sand under my toes. I also love walking through the woods so really I think just being out in nature helps me relax and de-stress. Unfortunately I also burn really easily so these two things tend to conflict.

My boyfriend has never been to New Jersey or the boardwalk so I’m hoping the two of us can take a short vacation this year and go visit the beach and that will definitely make me feel better since I’ve been super stressed lately with work and living with my parents still.

So yeah, that’s a little bit of what helps me relax and de-stress. What do you do for fun and to help relax in your spare time?

As always, have a goodnight!
