Much like everyone else this year, I have found this year to be tough. It’s drained me emotionally and physically. I think would have thought 2020 would have been absolutely stressful and hard anyway without a bloody worldwide pandemic.
This is a more of a personal post for the above question, as I rarely get angry. I am a happy go lucky person, and as I’ve said I don’t often get angry, I get frustrated and I get annoyed but I don’t get angry. Angry is a word, that when I think about it I see red, I see frustration and annoyance together, I see something that you cannot control your emotions over. I see hurt.
There are two times I have got seriously angry in my life.
Guys, I am going to be honest here, I cry easily. I swear lockdown has done something to my emotions which has put me into such an emotional state. Has it affected anyone else or am I just being pathetic? I always feel like having a good old cry is the best thing you can do to release any emotions. I attended a funeral the other week, and the family of the deceased (very close friends) all didn’t cry. To me, I found that just really intriguing as I felt like I was crying a thousand rivers over their dads passing.
But honestly what makes me cry? I’ve cried at people clapping the NHS on the telly, an advert, songs, of course films but the worst type of cry is the frustration and angry cry.
Does anyone else do this, if you’re angry or frustrated you cry? I’ve done it a work at few times, or even when im trying to win an argument and im just so pent up with frustration that I cry. It makes me feel pathetic but I honestly cannot help it.
I do believe that crying is good for the soul. Cry as much as you want, ive even bloody cried down the street before. I am just an emotional person. I can keep it in and appear cold hearted if I want to be, but I find it so difficult. I find that if I don’t have a good cry then it affects my mental health and then its a vicious circle isn’t it.
So here’s a video that has actually been made to make you cry. Lets see how long you last.
I saw a theme on instagram tonight about the 7 questions you should ask someone, if you really want to get to know them and I thought ooh this would be a good thing to get back into blogging.
First of all, can I say what the hell has wordpress done with this blocking thing. Anyway back to the premise of this post. Where or what is my happy place?
When I think of a happy place, I don’t really think of a physical place, I have so many memories that are running through my mind. I am the type of person to live in the past, which can be such a detrimental thing but hey that’s me.
My happy “place” is my memories, which can be:
laughing a lot around my Nan’s house, especially that time when we were all watching the TV and she was sat in her chair. But ever so slowly her chair was rising and she didnt realise she was sat on the remote. Howling of laughter at the time.
watching Fawlty Towers with my other Nan and she is absolutely laughing at the jokes.
holding my best friends babies for the first time.
so many day trips out with my family and just making so many memories on various holidays.
I mean, honestly I could go on but what i’ve learn is that although you may think your happy place is somewhere, sometimes your happy place is the memories that you hold so dearly to your heart.
Hopefully i’ll continue with the rest of the questions!! I am just super busy with work at the moment, cheers covid and i’ll be starting a new job soon so its just manic.
