We’re already on day 3 of this blogging challenge, I feel like it’s almost become a part of me to brain dump my thoughts relating to the prompt for the day, for someone who struggled with getting her words out, this has helped massively.
Day 03: Something with which you struggle.
When I first thought about my answer for this statement, I realised that there are so many things that I struggle with and that really overwhelmed me. I didn’t realise that a single human being could struggle with so much in just one short lifetime. The more I counted my struggles, the more I knew that it wasn’t the end of my struggle, there would always be another problem for which I’d have to figure out a solution, and the cycle would keep repeating.
As tempting as it is to list out my thousand and one struggles and end up having a pity party (population: one sad me), I thought that it would be better to focus on one thing that’s currently a struggle. The first thing that comes to mind is being kind to myself, my perfectionist tendencies and the habitual ways in which I hurt myself has been the way I live my life recently. And it’s neither healthy nor is it fulfilling, I feel like I am barely surviving as opposed to actually living. Now that I’ve acknowledged this and reflected upon it, it’s time for some changes.
Is here something that you struggle with? Can you do anything to change it?
