Some positive things for me to think about
My best friends are both alive
My boss is finally starting to respect me as an employee now that he’s moved me to a new position where he can leave me alone to do my job and there for actually see my potential.
Run on sentences don’t bother me like they used to.
I’m getting better at saving money.
I’m getting closer to people at work and that’s pretty fucking rad.
My parents are a day away from leaving for vacation meaning I’m one day away from my own little vacation from my parents.
I’m relearning to spend time alone and think about myself. Ultimately, it’s forcing me to understand myself in ways I try to repress. Self clarity is hard, but it brings happiness. As much as we like to romanticize other people, no one knows you like you know your self. Only you can understand yourself well enough to fix whatever is wrong in your life. Other people are nice company, but they are never the answer to your self doubt.
I’ve also learned that dumping my emotional baggage onto someone else doesn’t actually free me of that baggage. It’s nice to talk about it with people I trust, yes. But, as mentioned above, I can’t expect them to have all my answers. I have to find those myself. (And then go back and tell them about it cuz story telling is fun)
So much of my life is a mess right now. I could list all my problems, but this post would go on for days. The quality of your life is not measured by the quantity of failures, but by the quality of each success. (Even the little ones). I have to celebrate myself as often as possible. Find victories in my day-to-day. And be happy to be happy for myself.
Eh, the end.
