I honestly don't know what to say. Have you ever just felt like you are stuck in your own mind??? I seriously need to get out of my head... I'm not kidding. Being an adult sucks sometimes. I always knew that life wasn't all rainbows and unicorns but I also knew it could be whatever you made it.
Lately, I have noticed I allow those around me to bring negativity into my life because I love them and I want to be there for them. Whether it be relationship problems or just life problems I have always tried my best to be a shoulder to cry on. I am not saying that it's a bad thing, but the issue is, I bring other people's issues home with me. It isn't healthy at all.
I really need to learn how to listen and give advice to those I love, and then let go of the problem. I have to stop bringing it to bed with me. I have been losing sleep and feeling so drained because I haven't been protecting my own energy.
I am done. I am done crying about things I can't control. I am done being upset about something that has nothing to do with me. I am done letting other people's problems drain me of my energy. I am done loosing sleep over things that are not even affecting me.
It's okay to offer advice and be a shoulder to cry on... but I am done letting other people's issues get in the way of my life & wellbeing. I have to start protecting my own energy.
