Ok so bear with me because I’m not sure exactly how to put this into words but…recently I’ve thought how tired I am of being self absorbed, and tired of not taking advantage of my freedom and all the privileges I’ve been born with that other people don’t have.
Like there’s a whole world out there: There’s actually real life problems like people in North Korea have zero freedom of expression, or even thought. (As the NK government basically censors everything people in the country can see)
There’s people out there struggling with suicidal tendencies and cutting and loneliness
And I’m over here like:
I’m scared of setting up electrical services for my apt
And it’s just so…unimportant when you think about actual real issues in life. Idk…has anyone else ever felt this way?

I know the feeling. Though, I must say, I find I get more annoyed with other people’s problem’s than my own…mostly people who are dramatic about it and/or complain on facebook. …it’s just irritating when someone acts like their problems concern the end of the world when they really, really don’t. And it’s easy to spot people who are particularly ignorant to that fact, and contrast them to people who are fully aware how great they actually have it.
But when I find myself panicking about stupid problems like that, it actually helps a bit to remember that they aren’t that big of problems, and that the worst case scenario really isn’t the end of the world.

Exactly! I panic a lot over things that don’t really matter. Remembering that there are bigger problems in the world helps put things in perspective and calm me down 😛

Living in your own head is brutal. Its funny because when I open up to people about the things that go on in my head (I have PTSD and Bipolar 2) I get so often “Really? But you seem so confident and okay” and its like, well Im trusting that feelings aren’t always fact, and everyone always has their issues so I am going to continue along.
They compared it to a toddler (that isn’t your own), itll throw a tantrum and its your choice to either ignore it and let it pass, keep it occupied and continue on, or you feed it, give it attention, and it eventually turns into the Hulk.
