The real self is such an elusive concept. Can there really be something inside of all of us that defines who we long to truly be? (“Flips the script)
(Clear’s throat from coffee and continues)…Let’s get back to the real narrative. Real is what you make of it. People are always going to be attracted to goal-getters. But sometimes goal-getters are not attracted to themselves. Thus having an aura around them that can manifest as validation seeking, co-dependent, and pessimistic.
I hate to break it to you as I’m still attempting to break it to myself but there is no one that’s going to put you back together the way you want to but yourself. So if you hate yourself and don’t start learning how to re-invest in yourself you’re never going to get your power back.
This is when routine can be your saving grace because everybody has one even if they don’t think they do. For example, a depressed person’s routine can look like this:
(THIS IS STILL A ROUTINE)
Wakes up and showers (if that) 11:00 AM
Eats food left over on the counter from last night and continues to avoid the dishes 12:00 AM
Gets back in bed and watches Netflix 1-5PM
(AND, THIS IS STILL A ROUTINE)
Wakes up after receiving enough rest to conquer their priorities for the day while still making time for things that light up their spirit and adds value to others by respecting themselves and their boundaries.
Time management is key and consistency is the door to new opportunities.
This manifests differently in everyone’s life because everyone has 24 hours in a day but we all get to decide how we want to utilize it.
Remember, time is a resource.
Use it wisely…
Now go make that coffee and enjoy the day
