Hiya everyone! I just wanted to remind you guys that I’ve started a Youtube channel! A new video is already up so you guys wanna be subscribed to see it! Please be nice to me hahah!
I was writing up some of my positivity related blog posts and I sat back and it felt as though I was lying to you guys. Truth is, I’m not always positive. I think anyone would be lying if they call themselves a 24/7 positive person.
There are days when I just can’t be arsed and all I wanna do is cry and stay in my bed and cry some more. It is just a thing that happens occasionally. One thing I keep doing is reserving my Sunday’s for blog related things and Sundays tend to be the days where I burn out. I don’t want to do anything other than relax but I never let myself do that..
Just being positive is such a bad thing for you, in my opinion. As much as I hate being sad and negative, I feel like I need it sometimes. I need to allow myself to cry and mope around because otherwise I wouldn’t appreciate when I’m happy.
Humans are obsessed with constantly being happy and that’s why we struggle to open up when we aren’t. We don’t want people to know that we aren’t happy because isn’t that what you should strive to be? Whilst yes, always try to be happy whenever you can, it’s also important to allow yourself to feel sad because it can just become dangerous.
I personally truly think there is a somewhat dark side to positivity. We easily alienate our feelings to make ourselves come across as happy. Take me for example; I was writing my typical positive blog post when truly I was feeling like shit. I brushed that feeling to one side to make myself appear positive and cheery for that post.
We’re all subjected to the societal pressure to be happy. There are times when I don’t feel like I can mention how sad I am because I need to feel rosy all the time. That’s downright toxic and I’m going to try to make myself feel like that a lot less.
Positivity is key but it’s all about balance.
