I have noticed one thing.
Every time I feel sad, lonely, gloomy
There this one thing that cheers me up like nothing
And those effects last longer
No not music… I mean it’s good… But when I’m actually pissed off I don’t really feel like listening to music because in my mind overthinking and overanalyzing is going on…
It does actually, it helps me escape the dreadful reality that’s in front of me…
But that’s just an escape (I do feel more calm and stable after reading though)
But there is one more thing
Love expressed through the verbal assurance (i love you) and indirectly (genuine caring, supportive conversations) and through actions (doing something beautiful for me)
I was feeling very low the other day
And I had a very meaningful, nice chat with my best friend
She listened to me, understood me and made me feel much better
That uplifted my mood, calmed me down and gave me the strength to get back up again
This incident made me reflect, every single time I’ve felt low or sad or been really stressed
All it took to cheer me up was kind words, genuine support, encouraging smile, warm hug, relaxing good time spent with people I love
Isn’t this what we all need to get back up, even more stronger this time?
What works the best for you?
