Life is as inconstant as your ex.
There’s going to be an awful lot of wild storms out there. And maybe when the water just seems to become calm, out will randomly pop a sea monster, as if you’re in an overly dramatic, low-budget film with no plot whatsoever. When calamity after calamity strikes, and the crappy actors react in the same way each time- “I did not see that coming!”
OF COURSE THAT MONSTER WAS GOING TO COME, STUPID!
More than monsters that will never stop coming, challenges and certain situations or events in life will (obviously) never stop occurring. It takes a lot of time to realize and accept that some things that will never change, nor be affected by you.
That one person that you want to change will never change. The weather won’t magically *poof* into a sun-shiny, bright day for you. The wind won’t stop messing up your hair. Your ex won’t turn into a sensitive, compassionate being and beg for your forgiveness. You won’t get out of debt by moaning and asking people for more loans. Life is going to keep rolling, maybe dragging you along with it.
It’s up to you to make a change.
To get change, you need to enact a change. You need to enact change, or adapt. If something in life is going the wrong way, create change. Don’t wait for your life to do it!
If you’re on a train heading south but you want to go north, don’t go around waiting for it to make a U-turn! Jump off of it, and find a new one!
Of course, it isn’t as easy as that. It is never that easy. Especially when the things that you can’t control is something like a problem with your mental health.
There are things that you can do, however, even if you’re stuck in a situation that’s seemingly hopeless. Don’t wallow in your misery and accept it as a fact of life. There is always a way out; sometimes we just can’t see it.
Accept the past, let go, move on. Embrace all that is wrong in your life, and accept that you can’t control everything. Make up your mind, and just take that first step to make a change.
Change, no matter how hard or distant it seems, is always possible. It is never too late.
Never give up. You can’t control some (a lot) of things, but you can always control how you react to them.
xoxo, c. ❤️

ps this is real talk. that’s why it’s a longer, heavier post than usual (sorry). I’ve been feeling down, and even this didn’t cheer me up, so that’s why I may sound so serious.
pps BUBBLES! SPRINKLES! RAINBOWS! Ok, now I either sound a lot less serious or just plain weird. 😂 bye!
