Sometimes we laugh. Sometimes we cry. We are human. I cry over small things like a puppy getting hurt in a movie, or dropping my Naked 3 palette. But other times, I cry over fights with friends, or on the days where I feel completely worthless.
And that’s okay. You need to remember that the bad days don’t define you. You will have better days, and you will have days where there doesn’t seem to be an end. Remember that you are allowed to be upset, you just have to know when to be happy again. It’s not always easy, but if you really want to, you can find happiness, even in the small things.
The past year of my life, I have allowed myself to be hurt and feel pain with 100% of my heart, but only for a little while. Because of that, I learned to appreciate the amazing moments in my life so much more. I have learned to be okay in situations that used to make me really upset. I read a tweet that said, “If it won’t matter in 6 months, it’s not worth getting mad about now.” That really spoke to me, and I use it as a life motto now.
One of the worst things in life is having someone make you feel bad about being upset. They make you feel like your feelings are wrong. Please don’t ever feel like your emotions are not real because someone may have things worse.
Don’t get upset about the little things. Learn to let go, but don’t ever apologize for what you are feeling. You do not need to validate your feelings to anyone but yourself.
