Ever been so caught up in the rat race of life that you actually just forgot to breathe for two seconds.
For the past few months, all I have been doing is working myself into the ground without even taking any time to realise what is around me. For the past two weeks I have worked every day non-stop and then it finally became too much for me, I was getting grumpy, negative, tired, exhausted and a hell of a lot more emotional.
If I am going to be completely honest with you, I have always thought that I’m the type of person that never really liked the country lifestyle and I never really wanted to slow down. I always thought I liked the hustle and bustle of the city. Let me tell you though I now finally understand why my parents always wanted to go somewhere quite for a break. Because the constant working, pushing and stress placed on individuals in the city is quite astronomical. I think as human beings we always need just a little time to take out for ourselves and somewhere, where we will not be consumed by our phones or the internet for 15 hours a day. A time to just detox.
Although in many aspects I am quite a lucky person, I am also an extremely stressed person. And as I have been thinking what makes us most stressed, and that may be your job? But what makes you get up for that job everyday. That is probably money. And what makes you want money? Human desire. The human desire can be an extremely dangerous thing. The problem with it is, intellectually we know what is goof for us. But we will always follow what desire tells us, since that emotion is so strong. An example may be going back to a bad ex. We constantly are putting our emotions and self-value at risk because of desire.
That is half the reason why we all work so hard and sometimes don’t even really know where our destination is. That is why we all get caught up in the rat race of life.
Thats’s why I decided after a completely hectic and crazy few months, to just go down to my parents house. To just unwind and take a break from constantly looking at the internet, and wishing my life was different. Because the thing is on the internet everyone portray’s an image of their life, that really might not be that true. So I am taking that break for myself to just simply recharge my batteries and get my head a little more clear thinking.
Because the most important thing is, to stay true to you.
