Having A Bad Day

Everybody has bad days, whether its down to illness, mental health, lack of motivation, the latter or something else.

As I'm sat writing this, I haven't had a particularly good day. I woke up feeling horribly anxious, and thats when I knew it was going to be, 'one of those days'. It was going to be a day where I was going to have to take it easy and slow everything right down. 

I'm grateful though, these days come around maybe once or twice a month now. Whereas before I used to have them pretty much daily, so I can't exactly complain. I know its just anxiety messing with my mind, but I really hate it. Its like I'm a write-off for the day, and I can't function normally at all, because I just don't feel normal?! I feel vulnerable, tired and all I want to do is curl up in a little ball and not leave my bed. Oh, and watch endless amounts of Rupauls Drag Race and eat chocolate.  

Its easy to let these bad days consume you, but I'm slowly learning how to stop that. Before all I would think was, 'oh this is awful, when will these bad days stop, I hate anxiety blahblahblah'. And I would just wallow in the self pity. But actually, you've got to take a step back and realise that you have way more good days than you do bad. Everybody has bad days, thats just life, so theres no point dwelling on them. Think of all the positive things happening, or have happened in your life so far and focus on those. It'll channel some positive energy and before you know it, this bad day you're having will be a thing of the past. Yes, it might well happen again but you will have a handful of good days before another hits, so its really not all that bad. 

Apologies for the rambly post, I think I need to take my own advice sometimes so I'll probably be referring back to this post in the future. I hope if you're having a bad day, you overcome it and just remember all the positive things in life - as hard as that can be sometimes.

  1. Oh Lucy I hope you feel better soon, I think (in fact I know!) that we all have those days, and I always find that letting them be and accepting how you feel makes it a little easier xxx

  3. Today has actually been one of those days when life just doesn't seem right, it's like nothing fits in and I don't even know what I'm doing. I had a little cry earlier and I know it sounds ridiculous because nothing bad happened to make me feel this way but sometimes crying just helps a little to calm this feeling inside! I hope you feel better soon! :) x

  10. I feel like since becoming a teenager I have more bad days and I can't actually think of anything that's caused me to feel so low. But I am getting better at stopping myself from moping around all day!
    Love this post by the way! Xx
