"Le Struggle" #twentyTwo

I must admit, twenty two was an extremely difficult year for me. My sister called me on my birthday, and if I am not mistaken, I think I was crying. If I wasnโ€™t, I felt like it. I was having an early midlife crisis, or as my brother called it, โ€œA Life Crisis.โ€ Nothing was going right. Things at my job were going downhill; as a matter of fact, two months after my twenty second birthday, I lost that job. It was a hurt to my confidence because I was able to hold that job down for three years. On top of that the guy I was into at that time decided that he wanted to stop whatever it was we had going on. I realized that the people I chose to associate with at that time were not my real friends. My car situation was not ideal; I was still sharing with my mom because the one that belonged to me was stolen. And I was still living with mom and dad.

" The greatest gift you can give someone is the space to be his or herself, without the threat of you leaving. "

-

Kai,ย Lessons in Life #39 (via psych-facts)

"space to be him or herself" w/o the threat of me leavingโ€ฆ.that sounds like some misogynistic/potentially abusive mess to me. You canโ€™t be my friendโ€ฆwhen the space you crave or require disrupts my willโ€ฆyou canโ€™t be out here trampling on my boundaries and abusing meโ€ฆb/c you need freedom to be yourself. The price of your friendship is too greatโ€ฆif you being comfortable means me being silent about your raggedy behaviorโ€ฆyou may need to bounce.

28 Days of Gratitude

For the month of February, I took on a personal challenge (motivated by Andrea Lewis, link to the video is below) to start a Gratitude Journal. When I first heard it, I honestly thought it was a bit corny, but then I thought, โ€˜why not? What could it hurt? Especially if it will boost my self-esteem, self-love, and make me an all-around happier person.โ€™ And Iโ€™ve noticed that throughout my life, particularly my twenties, my personal happiness is extremely important in ways you wouldnโ€™t even understand! (But thatโ€™s another blog for another day)!
