A couple hours ago I got some horrible news. How should I react?
[This is a scheduled post. I’m on vacation and can’t immediately respond to comments.]
I don’t want to write this article but I have to…
July is over now which means that my three months long intership is over and I can go back home to my boyfriend! Finally!
This month I particularly learned my lesson of how to deal with the inevitable. It’s difficult to accept that I can’t control everything. It’s my life but there are things decided on my behalf or consequences of decisions I have to deal with.
It has been a while that I had a “panic attack”. What caused my panic this time?
Ugh, it seems like I love to push myself and bring me in new uncomfortable situations. I’m actually embarrassed that I can’t cope with the situation and have to write this article…
Did this ever happen to you? You sleep peacefully and all of a sudden you wake up in the middle of the night and everything feels wrong? You start to doubt every decision from the day. You regret everything. You are going to fail. You will disappoint people. Nothing will work out as planned. Panic. Worry. Your heartbeat is going faster. Stress. Your inner peace is in danger. Your sweet sleep is forgotten. You are paralyzed with fear.
What to do?
Today I met Alice to study together and in a break we talked a bit about our relationships. She was previously in a relationship with a guy who was just like her and it made her crazy. (If you don’t know Alice you can read this post.) After two years they broke up. Now she is in a relationship with one of our classmates who is the total opposite of her. When the rumor of their relationship was spreading around, everyone react the same: “Whaaaaat??!! How can they date????”
Alice is a perfectionist, our classmate is pure chaos. She told me that this relationship is a nice and refreshing change.
I wrote this text on the 4th of July but never published it. You can read it and guess why I didn’t publish it (I’m going to tell you why anyways at the end of this article):
This Saturday morning my boyfriend and I didn’t want to get up since the thought of having to study all day wasn’t really appealing. We stopped for a moment, cuddled, talked, enjoyed each other’s company (and procrastinated). It was such a wonderful way to start the day since we usually don’t wake up at the same time.
I love to read inspirational quotes, so whenever I come across a quote that really got me thinking, I make sure to write it in my little notebook. Therefore, I already have a nice collection to look at in demotivating, overwhelming and frustating times. One after another I want to share my favorite quotes with you guys!
Let’s start today!
