A Bad Day...

'1 universe, 8 planets, 204 countries, 804 islands, 7 seas, 7 billion people. Don't let 1 ruin your day.'

Sometimes some bad news, bullying, a break-up, a fight or something else can completely consume you and you forget to think of anything other than that. I saw this quote the other day, on a day when I had been really upset about what someone I knew had done and how they had hurt me. But like the quote says, sometimes you need to put things into context.

There is no point having a down day JUST because of that one person who happened to ruin it. Your not doing yourself any favours, and in fact you are letting the other person win. Sometimes you need to step back and think, 'Am I going to let this insignificant person ruin a great day, or am I going to ignore it for my own well-being and not let it affect me?'



Obviously, in certain situations its not possible to ignore someone completely as sometimes things can happen that affect you deeply. Therefore, in those times I think its important to talk to those who are closest to you and who can help you get through a hard time. If you ever feel that you can't talk to someone you know, then you can always talk to me by emailing me. Just know that I am always willing to listen and help in any way I can.

  2. I think it's good to be sad for a little while but once we start feeling sorry for ourselves that's when things can get worse. Great post :)

    1. i'm sorry to hear that gigi but i know how you feel, i was bullied too for some time and there would be some days that i would feel so upset, i really didnt know whether it was all worth the hassle really. you learn to ignore them i guess until they eventually get bored. as long as you realise that you dont need people like that in your life and that you dont need them to judge you the better you will feel about yourself. thanks gigi for your comment :) xx
