Some days it feels as though life wanted to bring us off track, get us down and make us feel bad. Those are the days when nothing seems to work, when we feel bad for no apparent reason and start to believe that we’re not living the life we want. Those are also the days when we overthink decisions we took in our past and regret things we said and did. We feel lost and left alone even in the most crowded places.
While we suffer a lot during these days, I believe they are necessary and make us grow as people. Nowadays we avoid thinking about our lives, looking back on what we saw and went through. Lots of people are not ready to come to terms with their past. Why? Because they are afraid of what they will see when they look back.
While it takes effort and courage to relive our past, it can lead to the acceptance of our life and peace of our thoughts. Trust your body, it wouldn’t make you think about something that didn’t make you richer in terms of comprehension of yourself and other people.
The bad days I’ve been talking about are reminders making us realize that we can’t close our eyes before our own life. On these days you have to remind yourself that while you might be able to push the snooze button, reality will always outrun you on the long term. There’s no running away from yourself.
Suffering in general means learning to accept situations and growing stronger as human beings. But there are different kinds of suffering- there are people who refuse to accept that something hurt them and most often these people have to go through more pain than people who simply accept that they have to suffer. Every cloud has a silver lining and good times are just around the corner.
People who try to overlook unsolved problems do everything to protect themselves from pain by distracting themselves, not allowing their thoughts to flow. In times of social media and the permanent possibility to reach other people it has become really easy not to think about yourself. But from an objective point of view, it only leads to the pain nesting itself into your everyday life, hurting you as soon you lay down your protective shield made of distractions.
You’re human, bad days will always come and the way you cope with them might decide on your entire future. Don’t forbid your brain to think.
