I have noticed one thing in particular about people who obsess over constantly doing something or another because they cannot stand it if even one corner of the table runner is upturned– they cannot chill! Like, at all! I’m tired of telling people to take things easier on themselves because, at the rate they’re currently going, they’re going to burn themselves out.
I don’t understand why people think it is a crime to go easy on themselves, even on their less kinder days.
The things is, we’ve all been programmed to be our most productive selves for so long, we have forgotten what it is like to not push ourselves to do our very best absolutely all the time. I think it’s a little sad that we have forgotten what it feels like to just live.
Oh, and that thing that Instagram influencers do? Living the high life every single day? They have bad days as well. Not everything is as we think it seems. Not everyone has good times all the time. Not everyone is as happy or as productive as they would like for us to believe. We shouldn’t set our standards by them, nor should we make them the standard.
We must allow ourselves to rest when we feel the need to do so and not blame ourselves for not being able to put in enough work for the day. Chances are that after a day of recharging, you’ll feel better and more productive tomorrow.
So, why worry about something that you can’t force yourselves to do? Xx
