We all have daily struggles. We all have our likes, dislikes, and demons that we deal with daily. They are what defines us, but can we change them?
We all struggle with the same things as humans, and that’s what draws us together as a common bond. We have all wondered if the person we like actually likes us back, we have all been short on money at some point even if it’s just to pay for something right then, and we have all hidden struggles from those around us.
I struggle with self-perception and love. I have a hard time loving myself, because I know that I am my own worst critic. I think this is a problem that we all have and it’s something that at least I struggle with daily. I look in the mirror and hate what I see. I look at my bank account and think I should have tried harder. I look at the people around me and wonder if they like me as much as I like them. I know this because I deal with these daily.
I have tried to run from these issues, hide these issues, and finally eat these issues. I know that dealing with all of these in the wrong way have hurt me or set me back in some way. I have to accept these things, try and be happy, and live my life for the fullest. I hope that everyone else who deals with struggles either internal or externally knows that they are not alone. You have to face them, and I will let you in on a secret… eating them doesn’t actually make them go away.
