Quotes, Self

Because no one said it was easy.

It’s no secret that life can get REALLY messy and complicated. Things aren’t always easy and clear-cut.

And when things in life start getting complicated, it can be pretty difficult or overwhelming to deal with everything.

It already seems like such a struggle to balance a work life, a personal life and a social life, so when one part of our lives gets especially messy, the equilibrium gets thrown off and everything else just seems THAT much more chaotic.

For example, it can seem nearly impossible to balance a social life while dealing with stress from work or a relationship full of drama.

Sometimes, we just have way too much on our plates. No one said life was going to be easy, but no one also said that life could get so difficult.

When you feel tangled up about life, it’s important to take a few minutes (or days, if you're going through something particularly difficult) to catch your breath.

We all know life is stressful, weird, and complex, so it’s definitely necessary to work through things or to just relax for a while. Remember, even if you're not always willing to admit it, life is really freaking difficult and it’s okay to take a time out.
