If your anything like me, you push yourself. That can be a really amazing thing in moderation. When you push yourself too much, you can break. As a writer and a student, it can be really hard. I want to accomplish a lot of things in my life. There are just so many things that I want to do and places I want to go! It can be overwhelming.
When I push myself like this, I tend to break down for up to a month. I give up on everything. I set unrealistic timelines for myself. I know plenty of other people like me. I have learned a hard lesson recently, I have to give myself a break. You should do this too! It has helped me so, so much. You can't put unrealistic expectations on yourself. You will live life disappointed in yourself. That is not a good way to live.
If you can learn to give yourself a break and just live life, you will be so much happier.
Life is insane sometimes, okay, most of the time. That doesn't mean you can blame your problems on the universe though. You still are responsible for you, but you can't fix others and their problems. This is a really hard pill to swallow.
When you give yourself a break, just accept that you can't fix everything. That is a lot harder said than done. Remember that you are still human, you can't expect to fix every single problem in the known universe. Just focus on you, give yourself a break!
Sometimes, I take a day to just do things that make me feel good. Things that make me feel good can be: painting, music, writing, working, painting my nails, go for a hike, and even more! This can be difficult to do when you want to do everything, but it is possible.
Please, just give yourself a break.
