Spiral

I feel like I’ve lost all hope. I can’t stop binging and I just feel myself going down a spiral. How do you get out of it?

The One

Why is finding a significant other such an important thing? We can find joy in friends, family, hobbies, really anything. Is it something about an unconditional love that we strive for? Or is it to find our other half? But why? Why are we not good enough for ourselves? It’s normal and healthy for humans to strive for relationships. I just don’t know why there is such an emphasis to get a significant other as soon as possible. I believe that some of us aren’t meant to have one, and that’s ok. Or maybe given circumstances it just hasn’t worked out with anyone, which is perfectly fine too. Is it really our purpose to find someone and procreate? It’s hard enough to love ourselves, and to find someone else to do it seems amazing yet sometimes not necessary. Sometimes self love and the love from family and friends is enough to suffice. Thoughts?

Interpreting and Control

I just watched a video saying that life is how you interpret it. You have to try and be positive and stay on the bright side to reduce anxiety/depression/etc. No kidding! If we really had a choice do you think we would be hiding in our rooms for days on end? Sometimes it’s not a choice. It’s just how we are wired, and that’s ok. But it just bothers me when people say just be positive. No, it’s not that simple. I wouldn’t have depression and I would make this all go away if it was that simple to just look on the bright side.

Now I feel like my argument is giving us loss of control. Which I know, is the worst thing to do. I’ve just accepted that this is how my brain works and sometimes thinking on the positive side doesn’t work for me. I think we can have control and still not be positive. When that happens, I am aware of my thoughts and know that they happen. What do you guys think about this topic?

Kind Souls

Why is it the kindest souls that seem to get the brunt of things? Or is it that were just so sensitive that we think bad things always happen to us? Hardships change that kindness. For some people, into a better person and for others, into something rough and jaded. For me, I am in the middle. I’ve become a mix of both. My kindness isn’t what it use to be. It’s more on the compassionate side now. It really is a blessing and a curse.

Fate

Nothing is permanent. Nothing is guaranteed. Some people don’t believe in fate, that your path hasn’t been made yet. But isn’t that your fate? Let’s say you haven’t met the love of your life, and you don’t believe in fate and all of the sudden you meet that person. Wasn’t that your date all along even if you don’t believe in it? I believe each of us is destined to do anything we want, and that is our fate.
