Talking of guilty pleasures…
What’s that one thing that satisfies you as much as it drains you?
Be it your fears, insecurities or even ambitions.
I’m sure we’re all victims.
It can either be academic stress, social anxiety or even romantic problems.
But before making things happen, you need to ask yourself about the end results.
Well some may not be as satisfying as they seem but some are worth taking in.
Let’s have a look at a bit of science…you exhale more than what you take in.
Meaning, that if you are aspiring to be successful, you won’t be optimistic and creative all the time.
You’ll experience more feelings of helplessness and hopelessness.
At times you’ll even have loss of interest in your daily activities, self-loathing and reckless behavior too.
But depression is like a cacophony of deafening alarm bells.
Listening to it is a choice…
What about resilience, self-control and emotional awareness?
You don’t have to die all the time. Sometimes you just get up even after being knocked down because if you have no time to breathe your lifetime could soon be over.
Personally, I’ve trained myself to lose interest as fast as possible when what I’m doing is not satisfying or I’m not feeling appreciated. It sounds cold but that bounce back is of essence. You don’t have to feel like you’re not good enough. Because some people will make you look like the toxic one, mean one, negative one then you think the problem is you. But the choice is still yours. What you allow yourself to take in and what you don’t.
