Positivity Is Slowly Killing You

Why are you doing this to you? Why are you doing this to your life, first and foremost?

Especially during these proving times there are people that have the courage to tell you that you should “take it easy” , “take your time and cope with the stress”…

“Relax”..

Why do you keep on listening to them?

I say : fuck that.

Pardon my language or not, i don’t care, BUT… do you really think that is the case to follow that lighthearted advice?

We’re in the middle of one of the most crazy crisis the world has ever known…and you heed the words of a random snowflake telling you that is “OK” to relax?

Really?

Why aren’t you improving yourself instead with all this time on your hands? THAT’S WHAT YOU SHOULD BE DOING.

Improving your flaws.

Improving your body.

Your finances.

Your life.

Don’t fall prey to this “fake” positivity stuff.
It’s damaging.

They’re telling you this because they probably have nothing going on in their lives as well.

They’re basically telling you that is ok to waste countless hours watching Netflix and playing videogames while the world is going to hell.

Yeah because being prepared to face life and uncomfortable situations is too big of a hassle, better wait until things are on your doorstep and it’s too late to do anything, while depression cripples on you.

Right?

Useless.

I’ve always hated this fake positivity that some people so desperately try to force on themselves and others, because it clouds people’s judgement in favor of a nonexistent and “avoid-all-problems” mindset.

Your problems are not going away with positivity and kind words.

But they won’t tell you that.

Why?

You see,
It doesn’t benefit to their persona, their following.

Yet you fall for their honey words, why?

I DARE YOU tell me that i’m wrong, when i’m just laying out the truth in front of your eyes.

“Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done! Now if you know what you’re worth then go out and get what you’re worth. But ya gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody! Cowards do that and that ain’t you! You’re better than that!”

-Rocky Balboa

I think you know where that line is from, don’t you?

It pretty much sums up what i feel, and why i think a positive mindset is good to have ONLY if you are willing NOT to ignore and sweep your flaws and problems under the rug with the excuse of being “positive”.

It’s time for you to start thinking AND feeling for yourself, stop being a god damn puppet.

That’s all I wanted to say.

Growth Is Found Where You Least Expect it.

Growing it’s an unavoidable part of all human beings, and even other creatures. Someone though might find itself not being able to make progress, constantly playing the same tune all over again for all its life.

Whether it’s because of past events that triggered fear and forged the bad habit to stick with what’s familiar – or be it the complete absence of the desire to do so, it’s known that it’s not unusual to find that spark while traversing pain and hardships, since they’re the best teachers you could find.

But growth can be experienced through other means, too.

While inspired,
Through simple anger,
By someone else’s words,

You name it.

We just need to know what we’re looking for, and why not- even stare intensely at something which we’d never though could teach us that something. Yes, that’s the hard part – because if we don’t know for sure that a thing could benefit us- we would never even consider it.

Heh.
Think about it: so many opportunities gone, just because you didn’t want to see them.
And don’t get it wrong, i’m guilty of it, too.

That’s why i think that being present and mindful when going through life could spare you countless headaches and regrets. You can start by simply REALLY listening to the ones you’re talking to, or to your body for example.

Actually PUT EFFORT in what you’re doing, in living – that’s the key.
