Life Supporters

10:25 PM

I genuinely feel sorry to this blog (& you readers).

I wanted this blog to be filled with positiveness, yet my latest posts are all about my blues.

So to replace all of that, here's a picture of me and a kitty falling in love at our first sights❤:

But honesty, I was really in my worst days back then. I've made my decision for now and I promise I'll get better.

For now, I wanted to tell you a little story how I can survive. How God's hands are really unpredictable. How your life supporters can be found in a way you never guessed.

As I said, I was in my worst days. With combination of both mental and physical exhaustion, and also pressures from every dirctions, I was literally blue for the longest time.

Everything seems so wrong, bad, and falling apart.

As a person who doesn't like to talk about my feelings and problems to other people, the point when I started to post a lot of my real feelings in the internet was the point when I started to have a mental break down.

In Twitter, Instagram, Line.

I needed to talk to somebody, but I just didn't know where to go. Not friends, probably I needed to seek for professional help.

I love to blog. It helped. But my mind wasn't function well to blog. I got no idea what to write. Everything seemed so empty and hard.

...In random times, one by one random people around me (probably) started to notice my all-time-bad-mood-vibe in social medias and tried to reach out at me.

Totally random friends that I might never guess they will reach out to me.

They just there. Listened. We didn't meet. We just chatted. They didn't give me any solutions. But they listened.

I didn't realize how much I need someone to listen to me until that time.

Some of them got in me in tears, knowing how some people were still care at me when we weren't even close friends...

So now, if any of you are currently having a hard time, especially about your adult life, I'll share what my friends are giving me. I hope these can help.

1. Are you second guessing everything?

This is one of most struggle in my adult life. I used to have a smooth life, as in (mostly) everything that I want to happen in my life, it's actually happening. Everything that I wish I have, I can actually get that.

But lately it's been so rough. It's somehow always out of the plan. And I started to second guess everything. I started to not believe in myself.

And if you do have the same problem. You feel lost? Here, take a look at this:

"You can't explore if you don't first get lost."

"We have to get lost if we want to explore."

Please take a look. It helped me. And I want this to work for you as well. It won't give you the solution, but it'll help you to accept your life.

You're still the decision maker of your life, but now you know that you take control of your life.

2. Do you remember your goal?

I'm a person with a big plan for my life. I work my ass off to have everything that I dream about. Lately I felt like I was so far away from my dream. I almost felt like it's impossible to reach anymore. I mean, yes, still possible, but I need a miracle to have that.

But then, one of my friend sent me this:

"If the plan doesn't work, change the plan, but never the goal."

I never really throw away my dreams, but I didn't know that I needed to be reminded by this.

It's a simple statement, but sometimes we forget about this. Especially when you're overwhelmed by your emotions.

3. Ever felt like you're way behind?

Obama retired at 55, Trump started at 70.

Sydney is 3 hours ahead of Perth, but that doesn't make Perth slow.
Someone graduated at the age of 22, but waited 5 years before securing a good job.
Someone became a CEO at 25 and died at 50.
While another became a CEO at 50 and lived to 90 years.
Someone is still single, while someone else got married.
Everyone in this world works based on their time zone.
People around you might seem to be ahead of you and some might seem to be behind you.
But everyone is running their own race, in their own time.
Do not envy them and do not mock them.
They are in their time zone, and you are in yours.
Life is about waiting for the right moment to act.
So relax.
You're not early.
You're not late.
You are very much on time. 
I saw someone posted this on LinkedIn (J. P. Skowron), and again, honestly I never thought I needed to be reminded like this

There's no such thing as late, because you're moving in your own time. God had planned your timeline, so whatever people say, you'll always going to move in your time.

4. Share, when you feel like you can't keep it to yourself anymore.

Yes. This is very important. Not all of people find this easy, including me. So if this is you; remember, make your (mental) health your number 1 priority. Share it. Find 1 person that you can trust. Share.

If you feel like you need to seek professional help. Don't be shy, go for help. Make a schedule with psychologist. Find the free consultation. Seek help.

You control your emotions, don't let them control you.

Lastly, I just wanna wish you guys a good luck. This too shall pass.

Yes, it's hard. But it's normal.

Yes, it's hard. But it's only getting better.

Yes, it's hard. But you'll still going to be there. To get your dream. You just take the longer road.

So please hold on. Let's fight together.
