As you probably know if you've been reading my blog for a while, I'm big on being positive in even the suckiest of situations. Yesterday, I had a pretty sucky day and as I sat there feeling sorry for myself for everything ranging from the two hour test I had to take to the pesky pounds I can't seem to lose, I realized that sometimes, hearing positivity in sucky moments just makes you want to punch a person in the face. Now, I realize that sounds a little extreme but it's simply the truth. Fortunately for me, it had been a while since I was on the receiving end of a sucky day or situation. I've always been the friend that told you it would all be sunshine and flowers in the morning. But you know what, it may not be. You may wake up in the morning and feel even worse than you did the night before. And you know what else? That's okay. You have a right to be sad. You have a right to be angry. You have a right to eat too much chocolate in hopes that it will drown all your sorrows. You have a right to not want to hear about how better things are yet to come or how it will look better in the morning. So, if you're having a sucky day or in the midst of a less than ideal situation, let me tell you this. Go ahead and cry. I mean full on ugly cry. Go eat your weight in carbs. Go complain about every little thing that'd going wrong. I understand. I've been there. It sucks. And no positive thing that I say right now will take that hurt away so let yourself be sad. For a day. Or for a week. Or even a few weeks. But the trick is that there will come a point where you will have to get up, dust yourself off, and accept the positivity. You can't feel sorry for yourself forever because although you don't want to hear it right now, it will get better. Maybe not today or the next day but eventually.

  2. Thanks for writing this.

    I feel like in this blogging world we always try to be all positive and happy but sometimes, life is not always that way. Life gets ugly sometimes and we all have to deal with this. Sometimes we just have to accept it, stop fighting it, and eventually life will get better but i think, in some situations, in order to get better it have to get a little ugly first.

    That being said, I don't want to be that all positive person you want to punch in the face (i've been there too, haha!) but i hope things will soon get better for you :)
