    Growing Pains

    Back in the day,

    We used to play outside till dawn

    Now, we're just another government pawn

    Back in the day,

    We used to live, laugh & grow

    Now, we are forced to work our asses off bro

    What is this shit? (mind my language)

    Death is a trap to try and get us to submit?

    As kids, we couldn't wait to be adults

    Now, I reflect and I am like that was truly nuts!

    The days when we could cry and be comforted

    Childhood turned to adulthood and those days plummeted

    Now, we're struggling to make ends meet, Who would have thought, childhood was only a treat

    But it's life,

    So put away that knife

    It is what it is -

    God is good, all is his

    Better days are ahead

    So, go and continue to chase that bread!

    Have you ever?

    Have your ever felt like no one understands you?

    Like you are alive but yet you feel like you are also dead

    Have you ever tried to reach out or talk

    But then, you are like 'nah, they won't get it'

    Have you ever felt so anxious,

    you masked it with ridiculously lame and 'weird' humour or sarcasm?

    Just to make it look like you are super chill but you are really just nervous

    Have you ever wanted to win a stranger's heart

    By giving them random compliments or by trying to make them smile or laugh

    Secretly thinking to yourself that this is exactly how you feel everyone should be and treat each other

    Have you ever been so naive to ignore the bad in someone and focus solely on the positives and look at the good in everyone?

    Have you ever been so foolish that you've tried to help and support or cheer up someone that has repeatedly hurt you and you know does not care about you and probably would not do the same in return? Yet, you do it anyways?

    Have you ever just stared into space, zoned out and smile...

    Imagining your perfect little dream world

    Imagining Utopia

    Have you ever been so naturally 'high' that people have assumed you drank or did drugs?

    Have you ever felt happy inside but on the outside felt scared to express or show it because of well, so-called evil eye

    Have you ever not believed in superstitions yet still been anxious and overthink your interactions due to them

    Have you ever just been happy for no reason at all like a child

    Have you ever... just spontaneously wrote a post like this without even thinking?

    Impulsivity can be fun but it can be exhausting...

    Humour can be fun but be tiring...

    Good things come and go; it is okay to feel not okay and for bad times to also come, they also go.

    Don't stop being you due to the bad moments or days

    KEEP SMILING :) :) Your energy is contagious and is needed to make the world go round - YING YANG - hippie style

    So About Valentine's day #Empathy #Depression #Relationships #empath

    Welp, I went to therapy. It was good, we talked a lot about how I was doing in regards to this person not being in my life anymore. I talked about how I felt stuck, How I want to talk to them again (I even do right now and thats partly why I am writing this). I know it can be toxic and is best to let things cool down but its hard. I have moment's of weakness where all I want to do is talk to her. I made a deal with myself in regards to that, the deal was that if I can make it to friday without talking to her I will message her and try to strike up a conversation. If she does not reply it is time to fully block her and delete all spare accs so there is no way to reach her. If she does happen to reply and the conversations seems like it isn't going in a good direction you need to excuse yourself for however long that may be. If indeed it is an eventful conversation then you need to consider your life and theirs in regards to the future. Will talking to them cause you pain again? do you want only a friendship? Naughty thoughts of this person are ok because things have happened but do you only want the best for this person and for this person to be in your life? Those are the steps I will take but it is barely Wednesday so I have some time for my mind to change or for things to happen. Going back to my therapy session I mentioned to my therapist that I was not sure what I was meant to be doing to feel better but I knew that what I was doing was not it. It also felt like even though I was trying to do new things it felt like I was doing noting at all. She in turn mentioned that maybe I was doing something and maybe a good action feels like no action has been taken at first. Well anyways I hope someone will help me decipher this. Love you all
