If you’re like me then I’m sure you’ve asked yourself this question on a regular basis. Can’t balance your life, struggling to cope with daily tasks, driving yourself up the wall? Me too! But, just know you’re not alone and I’m pretty sure you DON’T suck at life! We all have our off days, maybe off months or years but that doesn’t define who we are.
Finding a balance
The hardest thing for me is finding the perfect balance between part time work, university, having a life and maintaining a flat. I’m pretty sure perfect doesn’t exist so lets replace that
perfect more like an equal balance thats maintainable. Sometimes taking some time out of your day to have a minute to yourself, read a chapter of your book, spend some time with your loved ones makes the biggest difference. I know when I’m struggling to balance everything I like to write a list of everything I’ve got to do to get it out of my head and then take sometime to myself. Whether that’s going around to mine or my boyfriends families houses and spend some time there, distracted. I feel like I’m escaping my responsibilities for a short while to relax and deal with the fact that I have 100 jobs to do and only 1 hour to complete them.
Now, I’m not going to lie I suck at friendships! I can’t pinpoint what it is about them that I suck at but I do. Maybe its my relaxed approach, I’m not one to constantly text a friend. I’m here if you need me no matter what but I forget to message people, stay in contact and do regular friend things. I mean if regular friend things is even a thing? You know what I mean, like going out shopping, having sleepovers etc. Not having a lot of money definitely contributes to my lack of meeting friends especially during the holidays. Hopefully I’ll improve with my friendships and be a good friend as time goes on.
I’m pretty sure there is many positive things about me and you too!
I’m the first to hold my hands up and admit I can be a negative Nancy (sorry to all the Nancy’s out there, I’m sure you aren’t negative it’s just an unlucky name pun). I
sometimes let’s be honest most of the time pin point the negative aspects first. This is something I am working on but I’m pretty sure there are a lot of positives too. I hate talking about the good parts of me, it’s just not something I feel comfortable with. But here I go, I can be very motivated at times, if I put my mind to it I will do everything I possibly can! I will support people as much as I can whether that’s my friends, family, bloggers or strangers. Here’s a little challenge for you, comment three positive comments about yourself! ( I know you don’t want to, but if I’ve been brave enough to share mine please share yours!)
Before the good there has to be the bad
I know it’s hard to see this during a bad time but trust me the good times will come soon! I’ve been there, struggling to see how life could throw a positive thing my way, but it does! Recently I’ve had many testing times (too many for my liking) but there’s also been so many great times! Sometimes, it’s hard to recognise the good times after the bad. But, if you try and recognise one positive thing a day before going to sleep, you will start to see that the good times are coming.
So, if you’re still telling yourself that you suck at life then think again because I’m telling you, YOU DON’T SUCK AT LIFE!!!! I think you’re a pretty awesome person that is and will do great things!
