I am lost in every way. I have no idea what to do with my life. I used to have a rigid plain & knew exactly what I wanted, and how to get it. I also knew exactly what my backup plains were and how to get to them. However, a wrench of biblical proportions got thrown into plain A…then plain B and plain C followed suit. So at my plains for the future, health, and all around life were crumbling around me as a eighteen year old girl. I fell into a emotionally irresponsible relationship and quite literally put my life on hold for almost two years. It was one of the worst times in my life.
I always wondered why no one helped me, how no one in my life saw how sad I was and how I need guidance and extra love. Then the other day it hit me why people don’t help you, even when you voice it many many times. Because we always look so polished, we all look like we have our lives together…if only on the outside.
As a women I feel the pressure every day to look pretty; wear make up, put on a fashionable outfit, smile, look happy. There are just so many things you have to do everyday just to be look socially acceptable. I know that this is not only a problem for women, the amount of pressure to look, act and feel a certain way all the time is so high all the time it’s crazy.
So the moral of the story is if you are falling apart tell someone as many times as it takes you will find guidance in surprising places. Know you can’t always be perfect and that’s alright, it’s part of being human. You will figure it out I have faith in you don’t let the pressure of life.
