The Teddy Bear Solution

Teddy always knows best.

Teddy always knows best.

Thank goodness that’s over.

Let me just say, I’m not someone that gets stressed often. I can literally count the times that I have genuinely stressed about something on one hand. I’m 22.

Now I do consider myself lucky, because who enjoys waking up in the morning immediately feeling dreadful about all the possible horrible things that can happen to you. Your back aches, you don’t sleep well, you don’t eat well and you don’t exercise, because you are too busy being stressed about life. And then you start feeling guilty about you being a nervous wreck and everything just gets worse.

Nobody likes that. And this week, that was all I was. One big mess of stress.

It seems that all the bad things just happen at once. You have a ton of work that needs to get done, yesterday. The prospects of applyting for a new job dwindle into cyber silence. Your date for that wedding has canceled and you just don’t have the time to find a new one. And you realize, once again, that you are unhappy with various aspects of your life.

So, when this does happen, and it does, it seems almost impossible to put on a smile and think of your favourite things, when all you want to do is climb into bed and cry until the world disappears. (Un)fortunately that’s not how the world works…

Although your pillow offers some comfort, it doesn’t provide any solutions. The only solution is to simply keep going. Life is going to get you down sometimes, but that just means you’ll appreciate the good times so much more.

Stick it out, and you’ll see that you get to finish all your work much quicker than you thought, the new job you were eyeing might come from an unexpected place, you realize you have other friends that also like to attend weddings and you will feel fantastic about yourself when you realized that you survived one stress-filled week.

P.S Crying does help, just make sure to do it only in the vicinity of your loving and caring teddy bear.
