Every once in a while you get down into a rut. Nothing is working out for you, nothing makes sense. You thought things were finally looking up when really they weren’t. Whatever you try fails. I just wanted to tell you that it will be OK. Yeah, really, it will be OK. Just keep going.

This Friday was Valentine’s Day or as some people like to call it Singles Awareness Day. Relationships are hard, sometimes they don’t work out, maybe they never work out. It is hard for two different people to understand each other and that’s OK. Maybe nobody will understand your dry humor and your sarcastic remarks. Everybody is different, that is why the world is an amazing place, everybody has their own story, their own view. Putting yourself out there and hoping that somebody else will like you back is tough. It hurts when it doesn’t work out. You risk a lot when trying to validate yourself to another person and it is really brave to at least try. Just because it didn’t work out doesn’t make you any less of a person. Maybe you messed up here and there but the most important thing is to learn from the experience, become a stronger person from it. It isn’t their fault, it may not be your fault either, things sometimes just don’t work out. It takes two to tango.

Nobody has every part of their life figured out. There is no manual on how to be a person. Honestly being a functional person is really fucking hard. We all try and we all mess up. There isn’t a single person who hasn’t messed up. It’s part of growing up. It’s just important to learn and keep going because everything will be OK. You have to keep trying to get to the next checkpoint, life won’t just hand it over to you. Just remember, everything will be OK.
