Alright I am ready 28 Years – hit me

As I listen to: ‘Mess her up’ by Amy Shark, I feel the drive to write a much needed, promised post on me babbling about what I think the world is about but know so little about. For fun, for a way to express this wild mind of mine, and to be true to myself.

So it was time to reflect and laugh about my 28 years of existence. First of all, how the hell did 28 years creep up on me this fast? It only felt like I was 21 dancing in Cruz to the worst music possible winging at life with a lot more structure than I have now 😛

On my 28th birthday a lot of things happened, this isn’t the time nor place to share but what that moment really taught me was that: relationships really are the core to our existence. And these friendships, relationships can change or end in a matter of seconds NO MATTER HOW GOOD OR KIND YOU ARE TO PEOPLE. People that you really trust with all your heart can lie straight to your face and there really is nothing you can do about it, but identify and catch this behaviour. I am still trying to figure out how to push or move forward from this and I think I really got a wake up call that the world isn’t this nice, bubbly world that I imagined it to be. Literally, you live and you LEARN. It does not make sense to me because I do not lie and don’t know how people do but there are these people out there. If you can fill me in on any answers towards this, that would be great.

Long story, short. I have reevaluated and reshuffled some friendships in my life. What has prevailed is family, my dear brother that loves me no matter how I fail, what mistakes I make. He continues to believe that I am such a special human being in this world. Cherish these people, forgive those that are dealing with their inner demons but do not let them manipulate you or use your kindness against you, stand up for yourself when people try to bring you down and act cool and ALWAYS be your biggest supporter. When you fight against your own inner demons, it is possible to enable them to win. So do not let them.

The 50/50 of Dealing with Disappointment

If you are reading this post, let us talk about disappointment.

Firstly, the feeling is something that I do not want you to have to ever deal with but the reality is: you will. Some a lot, some more that a lot and others I guess will have a lucky run which is good for the now but in the long run will probably be your downfall and literally bite you in the bum (good luck soldiers).

So with disappointment how do we cope? Have you had to deal with it? Well it sucks doesn’t it? The most bitter disappointment is WHEN YOU KNEW THAT YOU COULD HAVE PROBABLY STOPPED THE INEVITABLE FROM HAPPENING. First, FORGIVE YOURSELF, tell yourself one of those rainbow glittery sayings like “everything happens for a reason”, “life sucks” haha ANYTHING that makes you feel better, do it (apart from the hard things I guess) and I guess start feeling the pain of this disappointment and acknowledge that it exists.

I can’t tell you that it will hurt any less or that there is a perfect way but all I can speak from is my EXPERIENCES and a person who has had to deal with a lot of lows (disappointments). Every disappointment, I deal with differently, every situation forces me to find a new level of myself that I never knew was possible. Call it learning, call it some buzzy concept like “growth mindset” or even better, “shit happens”, call it whatever you want.

Just know, that it is NORMAL to feel disappointment in your life or a lot of times in your life. There is a 50/50 zone when you are feeling disappointment.
