So we have officially decided we are going to be taking part in Blogmas. A new blogpost will be going up everyday in the countdown towards Christmas. Firstly we apologise for not being very frequent but thought his would be a good way to make up for it. This is quite an emotional and touching post for those who, aren’t feeling too ‘great’ about themselves and need a bit of reassurance. We’ve all been in that position so I hope this post provides you with a bit of ‘peace of mind’ if you like. Just remember you’re not alone. (:
To be driven and determined and to persevere in what you do, is not an easy thing. To stay on a path you had set out for yourself and ignore distractions and complications can be difficult. As we don’t like to focus on negativity on our blog you won’t hear us complain about these challenges, just a focused mindset to overcome a new challenge. From experience and becoming more mindful of our surroundings we have noticed a lot of people close to us change their mind and do things they didn’t mean to impulsively. As we don’t like seeing this and want to help as many of you as we can we thought we would write today’s post about losing yourself and help you try and figure out what you’ve lost.
There will always be something happening around you so from where you sit and read this, you may think everyone around you is living a perfect life, but the reality is everyone faces their own struggles, big or small. Comparison to others and what they are going through will not help you, it’s like playing spot the difference between two different scenes. They’re incomparable. Just because everything about those around you looks great and sounds great from the most recent pictures they’ve posted on Instagram with their holiday to Spain you have to remember, you’re only seeing what they want you to see. The sooner you release yourself from this self destructive mindset the better.
The most important part to finding yourself when you’re stuck is patience and staying calm, anger is the worst reaction you could possibly have. If something has made you angry, take a step back and think, after an argument with someone the last thing you should do is then talk to them with an annoyed mindset as this way you’ll end up saying things you’ll probably regret. Count to 10, have a relaxing bath, read a book just let your mind wander for a bit. But don’t bottle anything up, this won’t help anyone, if you refuse to tell anyone what’s wrong, write it in a diary, we don’t care how old you are, writing down your emotions really does help relieve you of them.
However, sometimes losing yourself may not be the wrong thing, sometimes to find yourself you have to try something new or maybe a few different things before you know what you really want. So just because you are unsure of what you have planned next year or even tomorrow, don’t stress and take every moment as it comes.
We hope this post helped you and gave you a different perspective on things, we would love to know what you thought of it and whether you would like to see more like it, so make sure you let us know in the comments.
Love Curls & S x
