It’s Not Easy Putting On A Face

I’m sure it’s very familiar to hear us wives and mothers are always complaining when we really have nothing to complain about. Sure, the other person has it harder, working and supporting kids alone, or their husbands have hurt them beyond repair and they can’t go on.

Okay, fine. I get all of that. But everyone’s lives are different and we all have our limit buttons and capacities at which we can handle things.

Emotionally, us women are often not okay. Put all the bias aside, this is a post about women in general and how we deal with things, whether we are wives, mothers, girlfriends, sisters. 

Often we have to be strong, holding together everything and we get caught up in that heroism, that we often forget ourselves. It’s hard to take care of yourself when you’re always tending to everyone around you. And when you neglect yourself, you start loathing things about your life. You may even tend to overlook some of the beautiful parts of it.

That’s why it’s important not to lose one self amidst everyone and everything. That feeling of suffocation, suppressing what you really feel can damage who you are. Believe me, we learn to hide things, put on a face for the world and beneath it all, we are broken and shattered. 

When this builds up inside of you, part of you dies. You don’t even have the will to be happy anymore, there’s no light at the end of the tunnel. You just go through the motions of everyday life like a robot without a purpose.

I myself, have fallen prey to this many times and I often lash out. I snap at the smallest things, I get depressed very quickly. I feel like I’m sinking and there’s no way out. I begin to self-loathe and blame myself for the crappy way I feel inside. My hurt and disappointment is my own fault.

Let me share with you something that has worked for me. Us humans will never feel perfect 24/7, it’s just how we’re programmed but simple things can enhance the way you feel about your life.

Firstly, you need to look after you. Yes, spend some time pampering yourself, indulging in something you enjoy. Take a cooking class, get a manicure, go watch a movie, hang out with girlfriends. Just partake in something that causes you small bursts of happiness and you’ll see results in your everyday life. When you look after you as an individual person, really look into your heart and know yourself, then you are able to take care of everyone and everything around you.

The kids will seem less annoying, your petty fights with your husband or family members will seem like nonsense. There really is a certain kind of power that comes with making yourself happy so choose happy 🙂

The Walking Dead Tag

1. Favorite weapon used to kill zombies
– Definitely Michonne’s sword. I don’t think I could lift a crossbow and look as cool as Daryl

About My Blog

I do have a tagline at the top of my blog with words of what my blog entails but I thought I’d share why and how I got my blog started.

I know I haven’t been blogging recently, I’ve been caught up with life and a lot of projects (writing) day and night so my blog took a backseat for a minute. I do however, have a lot of topics to cover on my blog. Hopefully I can get to it soon.
For a while I have wanted to try vlogging or making videos on Youtube but I’m too shy for it so blogging is perfect for me. I have been writing and keeping journals since forever so I’m quite comfortable in this space.
Why have I started a blog? Well, I have a lot of things to say and I don’t like posting small statuses on Facebook. People always think it’s an attack or it’s about them, plus I feel like I can archive longer notes on a blog. 
I don’t like talking about personal experiences to people but blogging gives me the freedom to tell my stories in a way that could inspire people or maybe even entertain. I love debating topics in a non-biased manner, even if other people don’t agree with my point of view and that is something I can’t do on most social media platforms. Most people just lack the capacity to think straight and detach their own hang ups about things. 
Like my tagline says, this blog is about parenting, diabetes, lifestyle, thoughts, rants, inspirations and books. I’m an avid reader and an aspiring writer, books mean a lot to me. I do book reviews on this blog, so if you’re into that, check out my older posts and subscribe for newer ones. 
A lot of people that I know personally don’t know about this blog and there’s a reason for that. I’ve always felt different, a square fitting into a circle and that’s mainly because people around me can’t stop with the negativity. This blog is to express my freedom and growth as a human being, something I can’t do in my everyday life. 
Anyways, thanks for listening to my little rant.
xo, Kat
