Note For The Day 19

Advertisements

Don’t whine and complain when you fail. Get up, do it again, and try harder.


Sharing some tough love for you all, I have written a lot of Note For The Day posts here, and just a little fun fact about those is that I’m not only posting it for my readers, before it becomes someone to read, these notes are mine first. Every time that I write these kinds of posts, it comes out of an argument I had with myself. My pessimistic and optimistic side often argues, and these notes are the outcome of my optimistic side winning the argument. I am proud of those moments, these notes remind me of those. These notes are also for me— I beat the doubts, and I get to encourage and motivate myself. This is my 19th note, I won at least 19 times. Well, it doesn’t beat the number of times that I lost but I still get to win, and that’s all that matters. I can beat my doubting self, I just have to try everyday and keep beating it even if it means I get to lose most days.

Today is one of those winning days. I’m feeling motivated, I got a little bit of tough love and pep talk from myself and I’m going to make the most out of it. I’m going to be productive today hooray for me!

“I Want To Be Different”

Most of us want to be different but what is being different? How do you define it? When everybody wants to be different then that means all of us are the same right? We all want the same thing, how does that make us any different?

Being different equally means being special, to be set apart from the rest, to be unique. We are all unique in our own way but most of us crave for being “different”. I guess we all have our own meaning to that word but most of us use that word to break out from our normal world. Like, being in line with a family of doctors but you wanted to break out from that and you wanted to become a writer instead. Or how your father wanted you to follow on his footsteps as a professional basketball player but you wanted to be a musician etc. Most of us grew up with a built path already, and we just have to walk on it. And some of us want to build our own. Which made me think that being different is not actually being different from the rest but becoming like the rest who are happy and successful, to follow their own passion and path.

“I want to be different” is not actually craving to be set apart, it is craving to be a part of something special and worthwhile. Being different is not going against the flow but being in the flow in the right river.

So, go ahead and be different.

Better Days

Thinking back to the time when I was still traversing the dark side of my life and comparing it to where I am now, it still feels surreal that I overcame that, back then I was so ready to give up. I never believed that “it will get better” but here I am now, better than I ever was.

Struggles and better days are always together. Rains and rainbows as well. Always remember that.

Share Your Story 02 | “Feel It All And Know One Day We Will Be Okay”

Welcome to another story and discussion about mental health. This segment aims to normalize discussion and break the stigma that surrounds this topic.

Disclaimer: ALL VIEWS AND COMMENTS MADE ON THIS BLOG IS NOT IN ANY WAY A MEDICAL OR PROFESSIONAL ADVICE. THESE ARE ALL FOR THE PURPOSE OF DISCUSSIONS AND OPINIONS.

Story#2

“I have always been anxious but more anxious than the average person which means I feel all the awful symptoms. My heart beating fast, nauseous, dizzy, can throw up, hot flashes, feeling cold, shaking… it’s a never ending list. People don’t take mental illnesses seriously but they affect your life completely. I still don’t have the solution but surrounding me by people who get me is really important. I also take anti anxiety meds when I need it. Swimming, doing yoga or surfing helps too. Movement is important. Writing it all off does help too. Sometimes we just have to feel it all and know that one day we will be okay. Love you xxxx”

First, thank you for sharing your story here. Anxiety is something difficult to deal with, I personally deal with it. I kind of realize that it doesn’t really go away, I find it to be something that I have to get used to everyday. I agree with how people not taking mental illnesses seriously, they don’t think it’s real because to them it’s all just in our minds. But people dismiss things they don’t understand, this is why we should discuss it more and I’m sorry for being like a broken record for saying it over and over again, but I will keep on saying it, WE SHOULD TALK ABOUT IT (sorry again for shouting ✌🏼). But my main take away from this story is the different ways of dealing with it. We all have different ways right? Some of us take meds, some of us writes, some do sports, music, and many more. It’s just something we have to do to get through it, and for someone who’s barely getting by, go back to what makes you calm and hold on to it like it’s your life support. And, just like what was written in this shared story “we just have to feel it all and know that one day we will be okay.” 🤗

I am so glad this segment is running, I have a couple of stories lined up already. I’m planning to share one story per week. So, thank you so much for contributing and sharing your stories. I am so happy that a lot of people are having the courage to speak up about struggles and facing it, I am so proud of those people. 😊 It is so inspiring and motivating to read. As a person who had experience dealing with demons in my mind, it was not easy, it wasn’t something that you will easily get over by sleeping on it or waiting it out. It took me years to know how to handle myself and my mind, and I’m still doing it. This segment is not meant to make your struggles go away, this is not something I do to magically heal people or make their pain go away. This is just my way to let people know that they are not alone, and to know that what they are feeling is something we can talk about. 🤗
