This post may repeat some things that I have said in the past, but a little reiteration can't hurt, right?
When I read The Catcher in the Rye, I was made to contemplate the situation in which Holden Caulfield was under.
He was stuck in a mental hospital. He missed Allie, his brother who died of leukemia. He was hallucinating.
Before all of that, he didn't really have any friends. He had failed out another school. He thought that his dad was going to kill him. He had nearly died of freezing/starving/dehydration because he blew off all of his money in New York.
It's not Thanksgiving season yet, but this all makes me grateful for what I have. I further understand that no matter how much homework or hate or sadness I'm surrounded with, it can always be worse.
At least I HAVE homework to complain about. At least I'm surrounded by people that love me to cancel out the hate. At least I'm not stuck in a mental hospital, missing ghosts, and hallucinating.
Life is good. Ish.
I feel like I've been complaining in too many of my posts recently, and I'm sorry if I've just sounded like a whiny teen. The pressure is really on, and I'm feeling its effects. It's alright though. I have a half-day tomorrow (Woot!)
What can I do to make everything better though, besides having a positive mindset and trying to motivate myself? Perhaps I just need to feel more focused. Something weird has happened this year. I've felt less responsible, and I've... Cared less? I can't quite place my finger on what it is, but it's changed my whole attitude. Whatever. Personal problems, pftttt. :D
If you're in a tough spot, and you're just tired and don't care anymore, remember that it could always be worse. Also remember that everything could always be better, and work towards that brighter situation. Don't let yourself get held back just because of some silly excuses. Go out there and tackle your problems. You got this!
I feel like the questions are getting a bit cheesy. I think I'm going to stop those for now.
Stay positive, peeps!
