Thought it was about time I did a serious, 'let's talk' blog post and be real with you all.
"We all need support from time to time."
Whether that be support through a grievance, illness, natural disaster or even a day-to-day tough decision. I'm the worst for letting people in and I really like to keep my wall up high but I am slowly, as I get older, discovering that there's nothing worse than bottling it up when there is so many people out there to support you that you can't see. I think the time when you really discover who your true friends are and those who are really there for you and when you are at your lowest and just give in and ask for help. I'm one for thinking, "people just say they can read you or can see it in your face and all that" but some people truly can. Some people can read you like a book. You think you're hidden and mysterious and a closed book but it's all inside your head and someone out there can see it in your face or in your behaviour.
Anyone that knows me knows that I can be a difficult person and I'm happy to admit it. I've certainly got better and letting people in and letting people get to know me. I'm not there 100% there yet but I'll never be completely open to the whole world anyone. No one is and why would you want to be? There's nothing to find out and nothing exciting to discover in one another then. If everyone was the same and 100% open, the world would be so boring. I'm sure you'll all agree with me when I say life is hard and you feel like you have to be this certain person and it's difficult to be yourself from the get-go because everyone is so judgmental but the best thing you can do is be honest and true to yourself because what's worse than trying to love yourself when you're too busy trying to be someone else for everyone else?
"You are who you are and that's a great thing."
and never change. For anyone.
I love meeting new people and finding someone who I click with more than the last person I met. It's exciting and fun meeting new people and making friends! Someone new to be yourself with and someone else who I'm sure who will love you for who you are and if they don't, they're not worth being your friend or enjoying your fabulous company!
I can be quite annoying and be like, no one likes me, my company is so boring, I wouldn't want to be friends with me either. Just stop and pull yourself together! You're so cool! Life is waaaaaay too short to not enjoy 1) your own company and 2) let everyone else enjoy your company because you are really depriving everyone of it!
If you are single, like me, it can be tough to feel supportive and wanted, unless your a social butterfly and are a friend of the world! The best thing to do is find a friend! Everyone needs one and even if you really enjoy your own company and are a very independent person everyone needs that social interaction from time to time to find out something new and to get out there! Make some plans with an old or new friend and just take some time out to have a laugh and lift your spirits. I'm quite known to be locked away in the house and get a little bit too over excited when plans are cancelled. However, I have found that when my best friend or mum talks about plans I'm so up for it! You do have to find that certain person or persons who will drag you out of the house and will make you want to go out because you know you will enjoy yourself and have a good time.
I love living comfortably in my little bubble and you should too. Just don't be so scared to let people in or put yourself out for someone old or new.
Time isn't worth wasting because there isn't enough of it!
Thank you so much for reading if you have made it to the end of this post! I salute you!
