Occasionally, I will feel like I’m going to burst into tears at any second. There is no apparent reason why I want to cry; often I’m pretty content. I will just have the feeling of anxiety and an urge to cry. I’m in one of those moods as I’m typing this. Something subconscious is probably triggering this but I can’t put my finger on what it is. That is truly the most frustrating feeling: feeling like you are about to lose your sh*t and having no idea why.
I can’t be the only person who experiences spells like this. When I feel like this, I want to be alone in my room. I don’t want to talk to anyone which is extremely rare for me. All I want to do is curl up in my fleece blanket and cry.
I haven’t come up with a foolproof solution to this problem. There are some days where I am easily able to snap out of this mood and others where it goes on indefinitely. Today, it has lasted for over an hour already with no end in sight. So instead of actually curling up in my blanket and crying, I decided to write this post.
Distraction: the cure for (almost) everything.
I’m not saying to not sit in your bed. At least sit in your bed and do something. Distraction is the key to stop feeling like this. Here are some things that I will do instead of crying:
- Watch YouTube videos (generally beauty-related or conspiracy theories).
- Read other blogs.
- Write blog posts.
- Play with my rabbits.
- Clean my room.
- Take a shower.
- Do my makeup.
- Text someone close to me.
- Burn a candle.
- Write in my journal.
- Eat some chocolate.
- Listen to Ed Sheeran.
- Watch HGTV.
- Use a face mask.
- Go through old photos.
So far you have survived 100% of your toughest days. Keep your head up.
