When Things Suck

A few weeks ago I read a post on Lark and Lace about picking yourself back up when things get shitty. It resonated with me, even though life was going pretty awesome for me at the time. Fast forward a week or so and something very upsetting turned my view fairly neatly on its head. If you've noticed that I haven't been posting much lately, that's because...I haven't been. Things got shitty and I've been taking the time to spend with my friends, because when the going gets tough, they are the ones that are always there for me. I'm picking myself back up, but its hard - and sometimes I feel like maybe Its too hard. But we all keep going, because we have to, and because one day it will completely be worth it.

I don't feel like posting my personal problems for everyone to read about, but I don't think its healthy to perpetuate the idea that we're perfect and don't have tough times in our life. Its so much easier to share the happy things, and the last thing you want to do when you fail or have your heart broken is post about it on the internets where everyone who pleases can see it...but I feel like we can really connect in times that aren't so perfect. So if you're going through a tough time, or you're feeling like you won't ever feel better, know that its perfectly okay to feel like complete crap sometimes. Feeling the feels is far better than pushing it down and pretending it isn't there. At the end of the day, the way we deal with hard times teaches us much about ourselves.

Sometimes the only thing you can do is make a cup of tea, and relish the things in life that make you happy.


  1. Sorry to hear that you are going through some rough times right now. I hope things start to turn around for you soon. <3

  2. I hope everything turns around for you soon. My self talk lately has been what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger, something will come together and be better than my dreams! Keep your chin up girl it will get better. Until then try to enjoy the little things that make you happy:)


  3. Hang in there lady! I definitely have those moments, especially throughout last year. It was tough, but I just kept reminding myself "you'll get through it.."


  4. It is so refreshing to see that someone is willing to be real and honest in their blogging. I agree that there are a lot of people who want to perpetuate this perfection about themselves that's just not realistic. Thank you for sharing this.

  5. Hi love! It's E.M. from lark&lace :) I loved reading this and I commend you for your bravery. It's tough to pretend like everything is perfect although that seems like the norm here in blog world. Stay strong, things will get better. I promise. <3 If you ever need somebody to talk to, I'm here!

  6. Just do yourself.



I would love to hear what you think! Comments make my day and I try my best to reply to every single one via email response :)
