My confidence just keeps on being punched in the penis

8.06.2017


Quite frankly, the last few weeks (for reasons I will not go into on the inter-webs) have been one big fat emotional turd.

For the first time in a long time I felt like a small, helpless and slightly emotionally unstable little pea in the big scary shell of a world. 

At these times in life, and trust me, we all get them, it’s hard to see past that big black hole of helplessness.  

But here's a reminder: We always come out the other end, even if it is after a unknown period of time. 


To add to the various changes partaking in my life at the moment, the other day I also had the joyous experience *sense sarcasm here* of being told that something I fear is one of my biggest weaknesses is in fact very true (well, at least in this one persons opinion). 

GREAT. WELL ISN’T THAT JUST BLOODY MARVELLOUS!!!!!! 

I mean what is one mean’t to do when this happens? Have a little sob? Throw a pity party? Internally scream 'f*ck you' and march off motivated to prove them wrong?

Well….I did all of the above. 

And tell ya what, it did make me feel slightly better - for a few minutes anyway. 


However, it was not enough, so I took some inspiration from Bridget Jones and “chose vodka and Chaka Khan”.  

Although instead of vodka it was prosecco (DUH), but it was in fact Chaka IRL (yes, she’s still alive) as I went to see her at Henley Festival. 

However, I only knew those two songs from Bridget Jones, so as my cousin so eloquently put it, “Chaka Khan? More like sack of sh*t!” 

What can I say? Us Carders have a way with words.

I can only really explain my feelings these past few weeks as, "my confidence being repeatedly punched in the penis":

- Emotionally 
- Personally 
- Professionally 
Like srsly, what other category is there!?

Anyway....

Now I’ve succumbed to the fact that I’m going to have to ride the wave of uncertainty, with a undercurrent of self-doubt for a while. 

However, to quote the Biebs 'Mark My Words', I’m going to ride it out and get myself back up A$AP Rocky (hopefully, maybe.. please someone/ something give me a lifeline). 



So, this is just a little post to remind you (and myself) that if life is not going how you want it to atm, you just need to shake yourself down, and not get down about it, because girl, everyone has to ride a sh*t storm sometimes. 

Just remember: you will come back from this and BOSS IT AT LYFE.

  2. I hate hearing when people get down but I can 100% relate, when life feels shit it can fully enclose around you and take over, my best tip is put on the sassiest music, your favourite outfit and tell yourself you are so much better than any of shit surrounding you! Keep positive girl, you'll be back on track in no time!
