If I had it my way, I would call my worst enemy, monday morning. Argh! They creep on you the first thing in the morning after a weekend as if it’s ready to bash up all your energy into the size of a gooseberry. My brain works on a Monday morning in two ways: One, where I’m ready to take charge of the day and where I’ll finally have some alone time without Bigshot. Two, I’ll be as cranky as the crankiest sloth and would hang on to Bigshot as if my whole life depended on it.
The latter has definitely happened today and I feel like a huge lump has been floating around my heart ever since Bigshot left for office. Dramatic much? You see, I hate changes. Even if it’s a short and temporary one. I’ve detachment problems where I cannot survive without people whom I’m extremely close to. All these small problems might make me look like a person who is weak at heart but that’s not entirely true. I’ve been through my share of lows in life and most of the time, I’ve dealt with it on my own. I’ll rise from a difficult situation and have stayed positive or moved on from it to see what’s beyond it.
But like I said after I started writing again in this blog, I need to be more honest because there are also those times where I’ve broken down completely and I could never see the light in my path. During those times we need good people around us. People who would not judge you, people who would not be condescending, people who are empathetic and people who genuinely loves you. Why I’m talking about the people around us is because it plays a huge part in shaping our life. These people are part of our ecosystem. These people, contribute to how we lead our life.
Why am I talking about it now? Because one of my friend is going through a tough time in her life. A tough time I couldn’t even be brave enough to go through. But as she is going through that difficult journey, a mutual friend we both knew decided to put her down even further. My friend later messages me telling me about how she thought of ways to end her life because everyone is going to talk about her the same way like the other friend. After she realized that she is being a threat to her own life, she started her counseling with a psychologist. She might be getting back to her normal life again and I might be just cribbing about my mondays, but if you look at both our social media, we both seem extremely happy and everything is going perfectly good in our lives. That’s what social media is actually. It’s a planned lie. People never know what a person is going through by looking into their social media.
So what I would tell people who has friends and family, is to support each other and never be an asshole like tha mutual friend of ours. You cannot compare one person’s life to the other and assume that it’s a simple issue. Everyone is different and everyone deals with difficult times differently. A 40 year old person who falls from a swing gets hurt in a different way compared to a 4 year old who falls from it. Like wise, mentally everyone goes through their share of tough times differently. Mental health is as or more important than physical health. To all those people who thinks they are entitled to their opinions and statements, I simply would like to tell them to get their head out of their ass and be kind to others. If you ever find your family members or friends being indifferent and upset, try being a good helping hand and make sure they know you are always there for them.
I’m going to go shake off my monday blues by dancing to my favorite song in front of the mirror. And I hope all your problems are as small as my Monday blues where it can be solved with a simple dance in front of the mirror, if not, you know where to find me or the good people in your ecosystem. Have a great day/ good night y’all! 🙂

I’m an ordinarily odd person who is pleasant to talk to. When I’m not trying to be funny, I would be lying on the floor bawling my eyes out. I write weird stories, real life snippets, traumatic and dramatic memories along with doses of unsolicited advices. 🙂
