Dos and don’ts when you get down

kait cryingI started this post when I was doing great. I pulled it out again recently because I’ve been really down suddenly and figured “I” need it now. So here’s another in my series of self lectures.

Step back.
Stop trying to hard.
Go to the gym.
Spend more time with real life family.
Go outside more, go to a park or some place beautiful if you can If you need to talk, talk to just one person in here who won’t talk to everyone else. Cut back a little on how many people you talk to in here, especially people who are closer to the other person.
Listen more talk less.
Put on your game face because success is the best revenge and smiling and waving will often hurt them more inside than fighting back Hug a lot!
Go out and meet new people who don’t know any of the issues.
Reconnect with or send a loving message to an old friend not involved in any of it.
Apologize, and mean it

Don’t Respond to hostile messages.
Slow everything down.
Don’t blame anyone to much.
Don’t wine and complain to much.
Don’t dwell on it.
Don’t do anything hurtful to yourself or anyone else Know when talking about it become unproductive and stop.
Don’t report them for anything.
Don’t try to win points or an argument.
Don’t keep rubbing their nose in a mistake.

  3. It is so hard to find the right words to write at you my dear Kait. Even the longest messages, the most sweetest poems or even the most silly chat talks won’t be enough to write you how I feel after I noticed the words “Kaitlyn_disabled”.
    I couldn’t stop crying anymore and run out of the chalet to find some time to cry like a little kid who’s been robed of her candy. Oh Kait I do hope you could find the time to think over and find the piece and rest you need. I would like you to know…I, no not just I but “We” will miss you at days you ain’t be here anymore. Kait…I love you, we love you a lot and special for you “ik hou van jou Kait”.

    We miss you already…

    Your “snif, snif” friend Wendy xxx
