Hopelessness

Some days nothing feels right. Somedays you don’t like yourself. No matter what you do it’s not good enough. Somedays positivity feels overrated. It’s not easy to look forward all the time. Somedays you can’t move. You just want to lay down. Some days are sad and frustrating. No one is happy all the time. No one can be happy all the time. If you believe you are happy all the time then you are not facing your problems but pretending everything is ok. Don’t look for happiness. Look for peace. Somedays when you don’t feel ok, don’t ignore it. It’s ok to be sad at times. Live that feeling. Let it go through your body so that you can get over it. You can’t understand the value of happiness if you have never let yourself feel sad. All feelings are part of human beings. Every one of them is important. Give every one of them a chance whenever it shows up. Feel it. Go through the process of feeling. Stop distracting yourself to not feel something. It’s uncomfortable sometimes but you gotta face it because this time you can ignore it but the next time when it shows up again, it’ll tear your heart and mind.

  1. You couldn’t have said it better. Really needed to hear this. Thank you! You are right when you say, sometimes we ignore things, pretend to be happy. Facing things is important. Or else next time, it really does tear you up from the inside. Thank you! This was a really helpful post! You’re doing a great job!

  2. Thank you for this. I have been trying lately to identify what I am feeling when I start looking for escape hatches that aren’t there to find. I thought it was grief since my husband took his life 18 months ago and maybe some of it still is, but it could be sadness from being stuck at home so much during this pandemic. I particularly like this statement: Don’t look for happiness. Look for peace. I will give that a try, thanks again.
