We All Suck Sometimes

Do you ever feel like you just suck? Like you can't do anything right? Like everyone is better at you at everything, including sucking? I mean, I literally feel bad for feeling bad sometimes. There are people with way worse situations in the world than I have, and probably worse then you have. But I'm here to tell you that no matter how much you think you suck, you can't keep thinking that.

Let's get one thing straight here. You may not like what I'm going to say, but guess what. You're not a vampire, a robot, or a highly advance organism. You are human. *gasp* It's true. You're human. You are not perfect. Even if you think you're perfect, you're not. So stop beating yourself up for not doing something as impossible as being perfect!

You need to be your own best friend in life. So wait. You're telling me I'm now so pathetic and lonely I have to pretend that I'm my best friend? Well, not exactly. It essentially means you need to treat yourself how you treat your best friend. Unless you treat your best friend like shit. Don't do that. But be kind to yourself. I know. You've probably heard the whole "be your own best friend" thing before, but how do you actually do it? Do you walk around asking yourself which movie you want to see? Then disagree about the movie? Then finally give in to yourself? Then wonder why there's men in white jackets who want to take you to a "safe place"? Maybe not the best plan.

So, how does one be their best friend (metaphorically speaking)? Well essentially you be: honest with yourself, kind, forgiving, understanding, supportive, positive, and just about every other "life is so great and I'm so optimistic and happy and the world is cotton candy" saying. Maybe not that far, but you get the point.

This is not to say that you don't need to take responsibility, or never be angry or disappointed with yourself, because you should and you will. What it means is don't call yourself stupid for nine hours, think negatively in every situation, and verbally (or physically) attack yourself until you want to crawl into a hole and die.

If you want to make it in this world you need to think positively, and keep hope alive. Because once hope is gone it means you have given up, and if you give up there is no way for you to succeed.

I hope this has helped you in some way, even if just for a moment.

Do you ever feel like you suck?
