Lately, it feels as though nothing I do is enough.
I know I say that we should keep doing our best and let things happen at their own pace but sometimes, it is a lot to handle. On most days, I don’t know how to keep going when I need to clearly do something to get things under my control. But that is not how life works.
We cannot always control how things pan out for us, though. As much as it makes us feel out-of-control and helpless in certain situations, it is comforting to know there are things that aren’t really our fault. It’s a little liberating to know that I don’t have to be in control all the time.
There are several things that I need to catch up with, considering how much I have missed out on in the two weeks that I was away. I feel as though I have lost a whole lot of motivation to actually write anything, and it’s really sad because writing pretty much means everything to me. But it is also becoming increasingly clear to me that I need to focus on my mental health as well.
If I don’t cut myself some slack, I am going to lose any passion I have for what I do. So, even if it has been so long, I would like to allow myself the time to recover from this slump, no matter how long it takes.
There is very little that we can do to actually catch up with all the things that we have missed out on. It seems like we never will. But we will also never know unless we try to get a grip on ourselves ad start somewhere. It might not seem like the best kind of advice, but this is pretty much what I have to offer at the moment.
Be patient with yourself, please. Xx
