WHY in 2018 are we trying to give people ‘magic pills’ then sending them back into the same environment that made them sick in the first place – just to get a quick fix?
Chances are, if something doesn’t ‘feel’ right in your gut, then it isn’t right. If you’re upset and feeling down and you don’t know why, strip it back.
Are you treating your body well? Are you in a relationship that makes you happy (and yes, that means fulfilling you in every department)? What did you used to love doing as a child that you no longer do? What are you neglecting yourself of, and why?
You are an animal and if someone took your pet dog, put flashing lights in their eyes daily, didn’t allow them to communicate properly (as they were just stood next to each other looking down at their phones), fed them chemicals, poisoned them weekly and made them compare themselves with bigger and better dogs daily, then it would be called animal abuse. So why are we doing it to ourselves… then deeming it acceptable?
Talking is the first step. But talking is useless without following up with action.
Take time to talk to each other. Stop looking down at your phone for five minutes. Look up, smile at someone, find out stories about your family members past. Become human again. COMMUNICATE.
Life is a gift and through systems we get taught to trade that gift in for money.
Through previous generations mindsets, education systems, political systems and unknowingly, friends – we are taught that you are only as good as what you do for work.
Ever taken the time to realise what money actually is when you break it down? It’s how much you value your time. It’s how much you are willing to trade your life on earth, to complete a job, to make someone else more money.
So if you’re going to work every week and coming out with nothing at the end of it, and you don’t enjoy your job. Well, you are essentially saying that you don’t value your time. You are trading in your precious time here for pieces of material – or the hope that you will get to retire and enjoy your last twenty years in a nice retirement home.
Starting at the bottom is tough once you’ve started out in a career path. No one ever wants to start again. But life is too short and precious to spend your life wishing your days away.
Could you go without that extra outfit? Do you need that spare room that you rarely go in? Could you downsize? Maybe you don’t need a new iPhone this year?
Surely your daily happiness is more important than pieces of happiness every so often?
If your job is making you miserable, no materialistic item will make you happy a fulfilled anyway – at least not long term.
If you’re in a job you hate, quit. If you’re in a relationship and it doesn’t make you feel good, deep down in your heart, leave. It’s hard but just trust in yourself to know there IS better out there, you will find it, and you do deserve it. Chances are, you have a bigger and better path to follow elsewhere and you’re missing out on all the goodies of an exciting life because you won’t leave your comfort zone.
You are so much more capable than you think until you are put in a position where you have to look after yourself.
The media teaches us that not having someone on our arm and being loved is the greatest risk you can have in life. But actually, the greatest risk is never taking the chance on yourself, and in turn, never fully loving yourself.
The pressures of society are becoming almost unbearable and we all know social media has a huge part to play in this. I’ve heard it from far too many of you. And something needs to be done, before we lose anyone else.
So, girls, boys, men, women, look out for each other. Drop the sass, drop the ‘bae’, drop the bravado, put down your phone, step away from social media and the toxicity out there and give your mate a cuddle.
