PERSONAL: Stressed over Success

Well Hi there! You would think with all this free time I have I'd be blogging more, but alas, I just sit on social media, watch Kardashians and do my charity work all day. If I get a job where I never have to look at an excel spreadsheet I'll be very happy.

I feel like as everyone is getting older, we're becoming more stressed about our lives. So many people have depression, anxiety and are just sad. Its horrible to see friends feeling like they aren't good enough or haven't achieved enough in their lives. But I totally understand.

My best friend found love and now is travelling around America with a theatre company. Another friend is working in Australia and another is working in Dubai. I have photographers, musicians, comedians as friends. Meanwhile I'm sitting on my bed wondering if Teddy/the scales will be angry if I eat the last doughnut. I'm almost 24 and I feel like I've done nothing with my life.

Speaking with my awesome best friend Becca, we think social media can really mess with peoples self esteem. Instagram is filled with people showing off their goodies, bodies, adventures, happy coupleyness, and lots of food. I'll admit I do it, but I also look at others and think 'why isn't that me?'


You never really know what's going on with someone. Their instagram feed could be filled with the most amazing things but in reality they could be miserable. Never judge a book by it's cover. 

I think we should learn to find the little good things in our lives rather than the bad. I know that's one of the most difficult things in the world to do but I think it makes life easier. I hate the fact I barely have an income, but I have boyfriend that cooks for me every night. I may not have a full clique but I have a best friend that's amazing. 

Bad breakup and heartbroken? That's fine, nothing is certain in life. Stop comparing yourself to other couples that are still together. Your self worth isn't defined by a relationship. Dry your eyes and get stronger. And don't be a bitch to your friends.

So that's my latest rant. Live in the moment. Life doesn't follow a set of rules. Shit happens. It's what you do after the shit that matters, that's what makes you awesome!
