In this day and age where social media is very prominent, it’s really easy to think that a lot of people have their lives together and are living a very successful & happy life but the truth is the majority of the times what you see online is only an illusion and a highlight of these people’s best moments whereas their day-to-day lives are quite the contrary.
You truly never know what happens behind closed doors or what someone is feeling unless they open up. However, just because many people are putting up a facade doesn’t mean that you have to hide your true emotions and struggle with them. In today’s post, I wanted to share with you some ways on how to keep things together when everything seems to be falling apart in your life.
À notre époque où les médias sociaux sont très importants, il est vraiment facile de penser que beaucoup de gens vivent une vie très réussie et heureuse, mais la vérité est que la plupart du temps, ce que vous voyez en ligne n’est que une illusion et une mise en lumière des meilleurs moments de ces personnes alors que leur quotidien est tout le contraire.
Vous ne savez vraiment jamais ce qui se passe derrière des portes closes ou ce que quelqu’un ressent à moins qu’il ne s’ouvre. Cependant, ce n’est pas parce que beaucoup de gens dressent une façade que vous devez cacher vos véritables émotions et lutter avec elles. Dans le post d’aujourd’hui, je voulais partager avec vous quelques façons de garder les choses ensemble quand tout semble s’effondrer dans votre vie.

KNOWING THAT YOU ARE NOT ALONE
One of the most important things that you have to realise when you are going through a difficult time is to know that you are not alone in your struggles. Everyone is going through something and the level of it can vary from person-to-person as well as to situation but you aren’t the only person who is struggling to keep it all together.
There are many who have been or who were in the same situation as yours and have been able to find the light at the end of the tunnel. If they have been able to get through that difficult time, why won’t you be able to? Will it be an easy journey? Probably not but it doesn’t have to be more complicated than it already is.

LETTING IT OUT
It’s so easy to feel overwhelmed with strong emotions when you are going through a stressful time but you have to let those emotions out in one way or another. Keeping them together or trying to hide them will do more harm than good. You might think you are doing a good job during that moment but a couple of weeks or months down the line, those same emotions will resurface again in a much uglier way and it will be much worse then.
Whether it’s confiding to a loved one about your worries or simply crying all your tears out, you have to let those emotions out no matter how difficult or hard it is. You will instantly see a difference after letting all those emotions out, your mind will be much clearer and you might even be able to find a solution to your problems & worries.

FINDING THAT SAFE SPACE
Everyone has that safe space in their lives where they get to feel the most comfortable & happiest when they are doing something they enjoy or when they are with a specific person. Just because you are going through a difficult period in your life doesn’t mean that you are not allowed to enjoy yourself or have some happy moments. Whether it’s watching your favourite TV show or movie, or have a night out with your friends – do things that genuinely make you feel content & peaceful. Not only will they distract your mind but they will also allow you to see that the difficult situation you are going through right now is only temporary and not something permanent.

This is so true, and something we all need to keep in mind. It’s easy to get depressed thinking that everyone is having a great time except you. My cousin recently told me about a Facebook friend she had who was always posting upbeat things; and then one day she found out he had committed suicide. You just never know.
Unfortunately, that’s the sad reality. We always think the grass is greener on the other side but you never truly know what happens behind closed doors or what’s going on inside someone’s mind. I’m so sorry to hear about the passing of your cousin’s friend, I hope he’s at a much better place now and she’s doing good.
Right on the point! Brilliant and useful post! 👏

I sometimes forget that it’s okay to let go the emotion. And when I let it go, I let it go. I suppose it’s like any practice, life, self, relationships. Daily attention really helps!
Absolutely! Sometimes we are the ones who are holding ourselves back. Thank you so much for reading 😊
True indeed. Thanks for sharing
