Stress is something that affects everyone, no matter how hard we try to keep it away from us. It is an ever present inconvenience that forces us to do more than we physically, and mentally, are able to handle. Stress makes us angry, depressed, disheartened. It makes us feel as though we are alone in the world, even though there are hundreds, even thousands of other people in the world who feel the exact same way that you do at the exact same moment in time.
Recently, stress has been overtaking my life. Between work, school and family it seems like I haven’t been in control of my own life. I work for no money, I go to school only to feel as if I know nothing, and my family forces me to think about the future, not by their words, but by their actions. I sit and I wonder, will I ever be able to find a job that actually has monetary value? Will I ever be able to walk into a math class and actually feel like I’m accomplishing something? Will I ever be able to leave home and feel like my family will be ok without me? It’s just constant stress and I don’t know how to handle it.
But, still, I know that I am not alone. I know that, even in my own school, there are people who feel the exact same way, maybe even worse. I sit, and I think that, maybe with this blog I might help someone in some way and that gives me a little bit of hope. I use this as a diary really, writing about whatever is on my mind, sharing my experiences and sharing my feelings. And, if this helps anyone in any kind of way, then I know that I have done a good job. I don’t require any knowledge of the help. I just want people to know, I’m here. I’ll listen. And I’ll try to help.
Music has different effects on different people. For me, it relaxes me. I can be having the worst day of my life and then I’ll sit down and turn on music and, for a little while, I’m able to forget about everything it troubling me. I get lost in the lyrics and the beat. It clears my mind and it just lets me relax. Say you’re having a stress filled day and you’re about ready to kill the next person that talks to you or, God forbid, asks you if you’re ok. Isn’t that the worst question that anyone can ever ask. If I was ok then I wouldn’t look like I wasn’t ok! Anyway, just sitting down in a room and listening to any kinda of music you enjoy can do wonders. You just get lost and let your mind wonder. Bubble bathes are also good for this but music is easier. So, next time you think you’re about to start crying or feel like you’re about to go on a murdering spree, turn on your favorite song, close your eyes, and just relax. Clear your mind. Let the lyrics take you away. I can almost guarantee you’ll feel better in some kind of way.
I love you guys!!
Happy New Year 2012!! <3
A New Year brings along with it new challenges, new failures, new joys and new sorrows. It brings about a chance to change who you are and to improve your life. You’ll meet new people and lose old friends. You’ll fall out of one love and into another. If you’re really lucky then the new year will be better than the last and you’ll be able to walk through the 12 months that follow 12:00 a.m. on January 1st with a permanent smile on your face and nothing but happiness in your heart. If you’re unlucky, it could be the exact opposite. But, whatever life throws at you, just know that you are never alone to go through it. You have you friends and your family by your side and they are more than willing to help you through your battles and to encourage you in your challenges. They may be the cause of your happiness or they may be the reason for your sadness.
A New Year means that you have a chance to change who you are, whether it be for better or for worse. It’s a new start to your life and you can be a new, and possibly better, person. Just know that, no matter what happens in the New Year, you can always change your mind during the year and make a new start. Start off the year on a good foot and with a smile on your face. I wish you nothing but the best of luck and all the happiness that you deserve. Happy New Year!
