Have you ever experienced a moment when you didn’t feel at the top of your game?? Physically, mentally, however. But it seemed like everyone else could tell too?? That can be devastating and it could even be something so miniscule, like forgetting to shave your legs as you were rushing out the house and you have on a skirt, but it hits you like a brick later on and eats away at you all day.
Did they notice and just not say anything? Did they wait until you were out of the room to start talking junk? Did they disguise it in a joke you didn’t realize was about you??? It’s a torturous place to be with your mind and it still happens in adulthood. I just can’t be the only one.
Here’s what I’ve had to begin telling me myself:
It’s above me now
Remember that saying? It fits perfectly for so many life situations. What’s done is done, lady. There’s no use in harping over what was or wasn’t said or done in an instance. Most times, all we’re dealing with is our tendency to overthink. I’d personally overthink so much to the point where I’d believe these miniscule “mistakes” are the reasons I missed out on huge blessings. And that’s just excessive.
When you release your problems and that negative energy attached with it, you invite new energy inside. It’s up to you what type of energy flows back in. Sure it can be difficult and negative energy just may find it’s way back but continue to filter it out. Whatever it takes to get these things “above you” do it so you can get back to life.
I don’t have a hole to crawl in
This reiterates the first point because that was a fluffy tactic. Next, I have to give myself a gut check if I’m not over it. A bit of tough love. Because will I let what someone said or misunderstood about me make me sell all my things to buy a shovel and dig a hole in the ground so I can avoid people until things get better? NO. Because it would actually have an even worse effect…I mean who digs a hole in the ground when they have problems?
But sometimes, you need to think about it to that extreme to snap yourself out of it! Now, if digging an actual hole in the ground would not make things better that tells you it’s not deep as you thought it was. And spoiler alert, I’ve yet to come to a situation where crawling into a hole is better.
The situation always resolves itself
Thinking back to some of those times you’ve felt a bit insecure…didn’t it eventually fade? No matter what you did, at some point you were able to go a day without thinking about it. And then a week…
Remember you can always reach that point of being unbothered. So be at peace with the fact that it will come in time and I believe it’ll reach you sooner than you think. I’d even suggest pairing that up with prayer. Pray to eliminate the triggers that get you upset until you’ve gotten over the situation. And only release them back into your life if it’s for a positive reason. I prayed this last week.
I want you to remember all this is in your mind a simply a battle with your flesh. When you notice this sooner, you can climb out of it quickly and enjoy more of the life you were blessed with. And the whole goal is to be at peace with ourselves as we’re appreciating all life has for us. We as humans struggle with this daily but I hope I was the angel on your shoulder you gave into today.
