Let’s talk about the bad days. We all have them, and it is important to talk about them. If we didn’t talk about them, we would never learn how to deal with them. The bad days are when the sun is shining but you can’t appreciate it. The bad days are when you feel nothing but empty, lonely, and depressed. The bad days are when you don’t see any good days ahead. The bad days are when you hear laughter and it hurts your ears. The bad days are hiding in your room, the bad days happen.
Maybe you are missing someone, maybe you are struggling with your friendships. Maybe you are overloaded with work, school, emotions. Please remind yourself, that this will pass. Trust me, it seems impossible to see that. It feels like life will never get better, but it will.
When you are lonely that is when God will listen the most. He will be there when no one else is. Talk to him, express openly how you feel, and what you need. I found this childrens prayer book in a Free Library near campus and this part says:
“Wouldn’t it be great if life was always chocolate cupcakes with yellow sprinkes a big tree with a tire swing, a funny movie with popcorn? But sometimes, life is celery and sour cream and rainy Saturdays. Sometimes it’s your fault, sometimes it just happens that way, but God is there to talk about it, all the time.”
If you are looking for a Bible Verse, Psalm 61:2 says:
From the end of the Earth will I cry unto the when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
Maybe God is not for all of you. I get it, it took me years to openly express my relationship with Him. I do not attend church or even own a bible, but I talk to God, and that is just what I need. For me an open relationship with Him, one where I talk, he listens, and vice versa, is good enough for me.
Sometimes we loose people in our lives. We feel like we lost half of ourselves when they walked out the door. We loose people for a reason, I understand that. That does not mean it still won’t hurt.
“People need “space” and “time,” as if this were physics and not a human relationship.”
It is going to hurt, really bad. Let it be. Let yourself hurt, just like let yourself have those bad days. Sleep even if it is 1 pm. Let yourself recover- you will see the light again. If you do not allow yourself time to live through the saddness and move into recovery, you will never actually get better. Emotional Hygiene, guys- I wrote a whole post on it. When we are hurting it is just like breaking a leg: it is going to hurt and you can’t stop that. It is going to take time and effort to recover. You will put that time and effort in because you think “Well it is my leg, and I need it, so I will try to get better.” Please, begin to think that about yourself. You are hurting, take time and effort to get better. Your mental health is JUST AS important as your legs.
I start classes tomorrow (Amen). I have been quite down lately, still trying to recover. Feel free to send me a little message- Twitter, Instagram, or leave me a message on here.
