Everyone is so afraid of hitting rock bottom. I get it; you fail and you fall. It’s lonely. It’s empty. It’s dark. It’s intense. It sucks major ass. You try again and you fall. You can’t do anything about it but feel the misery and failure.
I’m no expert, no guru; but this is different because I’m writing this more for myself than I’m writing this for you. So let’s get the fuck out of this miserable place together.
There’s a positive side of hitting rock bottom. I may sound crazy but here it is. Stay with me here.
When you hit rock bottom, there’s is no where else to go. Okay.. Try to stay with me here.
Again, when you hit rock BOTTOM, that means you have hit ROCK FUCKING BOTTOM. This is the worst as it gets! so what does that mean? you can’t go anywhere but UP. You get what I’m saying? No? okay.. Here it goes again.
No matter how many times you fall, you get back up and try again. What have you got to lose when you have hit rock bottom? NOTHING! So mind as well getting back up and try again. Because at this point, there is no where else to go but UP.
Here’s a couple point I have pinned up on my wall for a daily reminder for myself.
1. Get going
Write goals for your self, have a set schedule everyday. When you keep yourself busy doing difficult tasks, nothing is on your mind but to get that shit (task) done.
2. Wear pants
Since you’ll be too busy now, there’s no time for you to feel sorry for yourself. It’s time to put on those BIG BOY pants and start rocking them like there is no tomorrow.
Taking a break never hurts. Let me warn you, you’re failures might come back to haunt you. Feel that shit, but don’t let it get to you. Know the facts and why you fell and what can you do better.
3. Needs vs. Wants
You WANT that beer but you NEED that task to be done. You WANT money to spend it on material shit but you NEED money to put food on the table. You WANT to procrastinate but you NEED to finish what you started.
5. Do something different
I’m not saying to go out there and rob a bank. What I am saying is do something that you’ve always wanted to do but too scared of doing. For example, quitting that shit job that you hate, sell everything that is meaningless to you and go on a trip. Find something that you love, no matter what it is and pursue it, it can be photography, music, sky diving, hell maybe knitting. Try to live like a homeless person for a week. Accumulate some money and drive across the country. Join a club. Learn a new language. ANYTHING out of your ordinary daily routine. HAVE EXPERIENCES!
6. Give up
Give your talents, your love, your help, your hands out to the world. Impact this world by giving up your special abilities to others around you. Touch someones heart, they may be going through the same thing as you.
Nothing can stop you from going UP. Not your parents, friends, not your job, not your fears, not your boyfriend/girlfriend, not your family and especially YOURSELF. So let’s get out of this shit hole together.
Remember, when you hit rock bottom, there’s no where else to go but up.
You speak to your Father/Mother as a son/daughter
You speak to your teacher as a student
You speak to your love as a lover
You speak to your best friend as psychotic idiot
You speak to your siblings as a brother/sister
You speak to your friends as a friend
You see… Our personality does NOT change when were around a certain group of people. Our identity changes.
But know the difference “personality > identity”
The personality in ourselves is what makes us; US.
