So, for some strange reason, I’m that friend people go to for help. Why do I say “strange reason?” Well, because I’m also that friend that never takes their own advice. Sure, I know what to say and when to say it to comfort someone, but I can never apply that advice to myself. I think there is just some part of us that wants to help and be there for other people. Like I’ve said before, I’m that person that puts others before myself. And I’m sure I’m not the only one. It’s in our nature to be the shoulder to cry on for the people we love, and there’s nothing wrong with that. But there needs to come a time in our lives when we stop for a second and listen to ourselves. Listen to what we’re telling our friends. Because they’re not just words of comfort, part of what we’re saying is the truth and we know it. So why won’t we listen to what we’re saying? Life is what you make of it. Show some consistency to yourself, and take your own advice once in a while- make your life a little easier.
