It’s so easy to get bogged down in life and struggle to keep all the plates spinning.
We are all guilty of saying yes to too many things struggling to keep your head above water and afraid of letting everyone down.
I am the worse person for this, I try and help everyone around me without stopping to think of the cost this has on me and my mental health.
I am currently mastering the art of a work, life balance (basically I am adulting or at least attempting to). It’s not as easy as it looks though!
So a few things that I want to point out is that it’s ok not have your life in order. You don’t need to be perfect and you do not need to prove yourself to others. I will tell you one thing, everyone struggles and behind that calm exterior is someone frantically trying to make everything work.
It’s also ok to say no!
It’s hard to hear but at the end of the day you always have a choice. It’s ok to ask for help because nobody is a one man band. Life is hard, and that’s ok everything doesn’t need to be done to perfection! You are only one person at the end of the day and frankly some things just become more important than others.
It’s ok to not be perfect because not everyone is and you might think you already know this but having someone tell you that it’s ok and keep going you are doing an amazing job is sometimes all you need to hear.
It’s so easy to forget how hard life can be we are expect to just become an adult one day and no matter how old you are trust me when I say we are all just winging it.
So next time you feel like screaming just do it! ( well into a pillow think about the neighbours). You are not alone until this life thing we are all here right along side you.
