Today I finished the book from the quote above and it was absolutely fantastic. I can’t even begin to describe how much it meant to me. It completely changed my point of view on some things, and I will refrain from spoiling anything for you. Bottom line; buy it, read it.
It’s easy to get so caught up and stressed out with your life that you never have time for yourself. And that’s bad!!! The very thing just happened to me. Everything just kept piling up and piling up that I felt as if I was a ticking time bomb, just waiting to explode at any moment. It hasn’t been a very good time for me the past few weeks. The other day I decided I needed to take a break from my life, so I bought a book. I took a whole day to myself reading this book. I took a bubble bath (amazing way to de-stress by the way). Needless to say, taking that time for me didn’t take away my stress completely, but it did help a great deal.
I am one of those people who will do everything I can just so I don’t have to be alone. Being alone is my biggest fear. But today I was completely alone all day. I didn’t feel alone though, because I was doing things to better myself. That may not make any sense at all. Like um, Tay, you’re still alone??? Yes, but not in a negative way. I enjoyed it a lot, actually. Being alone in the sense that you’re by yourself isn’t always being alone in the sense that you have nobody.
I wake up every morning and tell myself this. Maybe you’re sad. Fight that sadness. Maybe you’re suicidal. Fight those urges. Maybe you’re being bullied at school. Fight those bullies. (Not physically. In your head. Fight away their words.)
You can do this. You will do this. And if anything, I believe in you. Stay strong my lovely. You’ve got this.
Until next time,
