Losing My Patience

Hello lovelies!

Just a heads up: I'm really going to try and be positive throughout this entire post... But I don't really know what's going to wind up on this blog entry. I'm just going to type and put my thoughts out there... & if I seem a little off, it's because I am. We're going to push through though! WOO. Here we go...

My first thought: Do you ever get the feeling you're being used? You're being manipulated? Do you find yourself making excuses for people because you WANT to see the good in them? Some days, you even forget that you feel this way at all. Everything is good. Grand. PERFECT. And then it happens again. You tell yourself to walk away, be strong-- but you somehow get sucked back in every. single. time. Get it together, girl!

My second thought: I don't get women-- plain and simple as that. Myself included! Why do we tear each other down so often? Why do we think that we have to outdo each other in every aspect of our lives? Who has the biggest diamond ring? The latest technology? The newest clothing? The most expensive "THINGS"? Listen-- anyone who knows me at all, knows I LOVE me some designer handbags. And I do have a few but that doesn't DEFINE me. I don't buy them because I want to make everyone else around me feel like they aren't good enough. I wish we could all just "empower" each other and we didn't make everything in to some sort of competition. There will ALWAYS be someone that is better looking than you, has more money than you, a better career than you-- WHO CARES? Be happy with what you have. There are thousands of people who would kill to be in your shoes--designer or not! ;)

My last thought of the night: People pleasers--I know I can be a people pleaser to an extent. I want everyone to like to me and I do care what people think more often than I should sometimes. (Although here lately, I can honestly say that has improved tremendously! You don't even know...) However, I am SO tired of hearing that as an excuse. Myself included...(Again!) "I'm a pushover.. I just can't say no." NO! If you don't want to do something, don't do it. If you don't want to go somewhere, DON'T go. It's simple! Learn to say NO. I'll leave it at that...

*Deep Breath*

Hmm.. Was all of that too harsh? Haha! Maybe so... but it's off my chest now and I feel better! Honestly, today has been one of those days where all I do is think. I tend to do that more than I should... My mind overtakes everything and before I know it, I'm thinking about every single thing going on in my life (plus more) at once.

Although this blog post may make me seem like I'm upset or annoyed, I'm really not. After work, I went and had an intense workout at the gym. It felt good to lift some heavy weights and sweat it all out. Afterwards, I went and ate at one of my favorite Greek restaurants. Super yummy! <3
Now, I am sitting here kind of tired, but awake at the same time. I didn't sleep well (or at all really) last night, so I'm going to try and get to bed at a decent time.

I hope you all have a fantastic day tomorrow!

Love always,
Charity

"Stop saying yes to everything and everyone. Stop agreeing with people just so you don't upset them. You're not a pushover. You were not put on this earth to be stressed and miserable so others can be relaxed and happy. Start protecting your time and your happiness. If others can't handle it, show them the door."

"What you allow is what will continue."

I have been loving Shawn Mendes' album. His music reminds me A LOT of John Mayer. (And if you know me at all, you know I love me some John! This also means all the songs aren't going to be super happy, but I'm making an exception for today! Ha!) I've been listening to this album a lot this week so I'm going to share some of my favorite songs below! :)
