I didn't have much to rant about this week, I had a lovely week in Waterford with my friend and life was going pretty well. That was until I came across something on social media that I really really didn't want to see. You know that feeling where all you can do is stare at the wall in shock and try not to cry? Well, I do...
I HATE that side of social media, isn't it amazing how something as simple as a picture or somebody's name can just ruin your day? Does that only happen to me? Something pops up on your newsfeed, whether it's a relationship status, cute picture that you do not find cute, some conversation that tells you way too much, or something else, and all you can do is try to decide whether you would prefer to investigate the situation further or delete your account? I won't go into the details of what my unfortunate occurrence was, but lets just say, it called for lots of Tay and Bey.
However, after a minute of slightly hyperventilating and needing to cry, I realised I had two options - I could let this ruin my day and keep going over it in my head, or I could take it as a sign from the angels and let it make me stronger. I have opted for the second option, this led to lots of productive writing and girl power music, rather than leading to burying my head into the junk food cupboard and crying my eyes out. I am now the same weight I was half an hour ago and my mascara is still on point, so who's the real winner here?
As much as I didn't want to see what I saw, I needed to see it, it really opened my eyes to the fact that I can't let other peoples actions control my thoughts and emotions anymore. Hurting is a horrible thing, but it will also inspire many blog posts and make me a stronger person for the future.
Life goes on!
