We don’t have to grin and bare it.

We all have those times in our lives that we fail to acknowledge. Hidden from social media like a dirty little secret. Repressed in that chest within our heads covered in locks and chains with a “Keep Out” sign scrawled across the lid in red paint… probably next to the filing cabinet entitled “General Knowledge” that everyone’s lost they key for; apart from those who are bloody brilliant at pub quizzes.

Yes my darlings I am talking about those gloomy, heartbreaking, want-to-hide-under-the-duvet-cover-in-bed-and-never-come-out sort of days.

I’m currently going through one of those periods, unlike many people associated with being able to express thoughts and ideas over the internet, I’ve decided to say something about it. Because you know what? It really pisses me off, tell someone your problems if you want to get it off your chest! You may think that they don’t give a rat’s arse about what you’re going through, but I can assure you that they will! Or if you don’t want to tell anybody that is also ok. It’s perfectly normal to not be tickety-boo 24/7!

We all have perks and losses in our lives, intertwined with those odd little anomalies of increased motivation and duvet days. It wouldn’t be life without them, but somehow that dreaded human-created monster named “society” has brainwashed the population (for women as an example) into thinking that it’s “normal” to have a thigh gap, hip length thick hair, a toned body, big boobs that can somehow fit into Topshop clothes that do not seem to be designed to accommodate boobs, a big bum that can fit into size 4 jeans, all the while you do your job that earns you £100000000000 p/m because of that first honours degree you got from a red-brick university. STOP. It’s ridiculous isn’t it?

Don’t dwell on that you have no boobs or you have fine hair, it’s genetics. We all feel like we could be improved in one way or another – I know I do, I want 20/20 vision and thick hair – and it’s ok to feel down about it. Just don’t let something that unimportant like that take over your life. Because when something worse happens, you’ll be wondering why on earth you paid such attention to such a small aspect of your life.

I hope you all are having a nice week, because I sure as hell am not.


One thought on “We don’t have to grin and bare it.

  1. well, just one thought,
    if we try to accomplish every great thing a great person is supposed to do, as advised and reminded by society,
    then we will spend our life fulfilling other’s expectation, and depending our self esteem on other’s thinking,

    yeah, we have been tricked into believing this shit, social conditioning,
    we are taught, well have been brain-washed into believing we need to try to get into the top notch people,
    well, the society’s perception of it, and they make us believe if we aren’t able to do so, we are a failure,
    when we are not.

    well, if being naked was a social custom, e.g burning man festival,
    then people who are not nude would be rebuked, and described weird.

    well, that’s our fucking society, majority decides what people do,
    and alone they are annoyed with what they themselves chose for the themselves.

    so fuck expectations,
    and be your opinion of yours be truly yours, not an edited judgement of others,
    that’s why each person was given a separate brain.

    enjoy, and don’t enjoy if you don’t want to.
    it’s fucking your life, do anything.

    No, not everything.
