Tough Love: Me vs. Me

It’s time for you to pull your head out of your ass and start paying your bills (ON TIME!), asking for help when you need it (as SOON as you need it, not at the eleventh hour after you’ve managed to ruin a week of your life mulling over the what-if outcomes if you are denied your requests), and take some time to stop being so narcissistic, thinking all the world’s a stage and everyone is judging you and your life choices.


Sure, they may gossip, may have an opinion, may find a sick sensation of happiness in your misery; but everyone is far more obsessed with their own needs and desires; their own boxes of pain and their own romances and tragedies.  This facade of perfection is quickly beginning to look a lot like a game of solitaire; you only act it out for yourself.  No one cares how many followers you have on Instagram.  No one cares that you might have to take a step back career-wise to get yourself back in the game. No one cares that you aren’t on the fast track for marriage and a bunch of little babies running around.

So why don’t you do yourself a favor and start doing what you’re supposed to instead of self loathing over it all and still getting nowhere (i.e. paying your taxes, checking your gmail on a regular basis, responding to texts, going to the dentist: basically all of the things normal adults do because that’s really the only choice we have at the end of the day..)?  Why don’t you decide to give zero fucks what anyone else thinks about you?  Why don’t you get out of your own damn way, obsessing over the lost picture of what you expected 28 to look like and begin to take all things in stride?  Why don’t you let the life you were intended to live happen?

Stop resisting, stop complicating.  Because, at the end of the day, it really is as simple as Dr. Seuss says:  “if things start happening, don’t worry, don’t stew, just go right along and you’ll start happening too!”
