- Things will get better. Your emotions right now will change and improve, maybe not as quickly as you’d like but eventually you’ll feel better.
- It’s okay. It’s okay to feel down, it’s okay to feel upset/heartbroken/miserable. Before you try to make yourself feel better, allow yourself to take time to accept this so you don’t let others tell you it’s silly to be upset for whatever reason you’re feeling down in the first place. Our mental health is so much more important than we think.
- If you’re feeling down because you’ve had an argument, remember things that are said in the heat of the moment don’t always represent how that person feels. We’re all guilty of saying something we don’t mean when we’re angry or upset and feel guilty afterwards. It’s important to remember not to always take things to heart, sometimes people get worked up too much and can’t control what they say.
- Give yourself time to be alone. For some people after they’ve been feeling low they’ll turn to friends and family to cheer them up. Sometimes you just need to be by yourself and that’s fine too. Listen to some music or read a book or go on YouTube and watch funny videos (this works for me most of the time)
This was quite random, I was feeling really upset and I thought maybe writing about it would help and it has. I think sometimes when we’re upset we think it’s the worst thing in the world and you’ll never feel happiness again but then you do. I know there are some situations that are far more serious to be upset about so please bear in mind this post was written by someone who just had a fight with her mum and sister and felt alone and upset. If you read this post and it made you feel a little better or calmer, then I’m glad and I hope whatever’s troubling you is solved. Thanks for reading, I understand this is more serious than previous posts but hey, it can’t all be beauty and Netflix all the time x
