The other day I spoke about how there are no quick fixes. I was wrong. There are quick fixes. Blame others. Criticise others. And hate others. It WILL actually provide you relief from your insecurities and your pain. The first time you do it, it might last for a couple of hours but there’s a problem with this quick fix. The more you use it, the less effective it gets. Offloading your pain by blaming/criticising and hating will soon only give you a few seconds of relief.
Either way, you will have momentary relief. But that is not what you seek. What you are seeking is healing. THAT only happens by looking inside yourself. THAT only happens by digging through your own tough shit with kindness and compassion. It’s looking at the worst parts of yourself and the parts of yourself that you hate most and want to ignore, and embracing them with love.
The way I see it, is the tough emotional shit is inevitable. But it’s your choice whether you want to do it now or put it off until you are elderly. If you choose the latter, it’s frankly a toss of a coin if you will live as long as you expect to. I know that’s morbid, but again, I died at 11 so excuse me if I have no sympathy for people who waste time on this earth. I know the truth is hard to hear but don’t wait until you face your mortality to realise your purpose in life…and I can guarantee your purpose is not to fit into a size 12 pair of jeans. #ScarredNotScared
