Sometimes things are really great and you are on top of the world; other times you lie in bed all day and drink box wine in a pile of cheeseburger wrappers and you don't know why.
It just happens sometimes. You can't always be that unicorn running along the top of a rainbow with magical kisses from Heaven falling down all around you. Sometimes you need to relax, reflect and regenerate. The Triple R. There's nothing wrong with this and the more you allow yourself to feel however it is that your body is telling you to feel, the better. If you fight these natural reactions to the world around you or you try to suffocate them with anti-depressants and fake smiles, you are hurting yourself and you will never truly come out of your funk.
But why can't I be happy all the time like Marcy on Facebook? Great question. Better answer. Marcy isn't happy like that all the time. Marcy is just like you, probably worse. Marcy puts those pictures of vacations up on her Facebook and acts like she enjoys her kids every moment of every day and seems to cook all the time and loves inspirational quotes. What you DON'T see her post on FB is her credit card statements, selfies of her pulling her hair out because little Billy won't shut up and go to bed already. You won't see Marcy take a picture with her prescription of Zoloft or a picture of the other woman that her husband got pregnant. Why? Because Marcy is a liar. Marcy wants someone to be jealous of her. She wants to put on those airs and act like she has it all together. People use this modern technology to paint a picture of what they want their lives to be; but it doesn't mean that they're happy and it doesn't mean that everything they say is true. Sometimes it's all they have and when they post something, they momentarily forget what the truth really is.
Don't do this. Don't be this. Don't lie to yourself or anyone else.
I'm not saying to go on social media and proudly proclaim that you have the Herp and haven't showered in a week, but I am saying not to make crap up. You aren't helping yourself and you aren't helping anyone else either. Just be yourself. Stop caring what everyone else says and does. Get rid of your social media because in all honesty, it will free your time, your mind, and help you to regenerate yourself without being polluted with the lies of those around you. You don't hate your life. You just need to take some time for the Triple R. Be honest with yourself and you will feel better.
Ashley and Cecilia work hard, play hard, write stuff, read stuff... because they don't know what else to do with their lives.
