Ai big man, I’m stressed

Hey readers, I know you’ve come here to get some great life advice from me but nah, I’m actually going to need your help, your advice and your guidance because I am stressed.

Lately i’ve been feeling like I’m biting the match stick at both ends…trying to create, hold down a job and just be human is getting a bit much. I used to say to people that there’s enough time in the day to get everything you need done, ha, yeah right. For the average person living a comfortable existence yeah, but for the lunatics that want to go above and beyond, 24 hours? Sorry higher power I’m going to need another 5.

I’ve started to break down my day as follows; 9-5 strictly my work time with my lunch focused towards my creative endeavours, 5-9 dedicated to my dreams and in between I work on just being a human being.

Lately, I feel like I’ve been burning myself out, trying to please the world first. The funny thing is that people will say things like ‘hey M, you should prioritise yourself before you help others’…till they themselves need your help then it’s like ‘come on brooo’.

I feel like if this carries on any further, two options will be presented to me; I fail, which is what the world hopes or I become a savage, the way the internet hopes. Two options I’d rather swerve past.

Now I’ve tried a few things to help, booked a few holidays to get my mind of things, said no to a few events, started to push the things I love a lot more and speak my mind to the people I should be speaking to, but the thing is, it’s like an itch I’ve just got to scratch and I fall back into the same place.

I don’t want to get to a point in my life where I look back and regret the decisions I’ve made. If anyone has any advice on managing life, work, ambition blah blah blah, please do share as I’m sure I’m not the only one.

M.

  1. Feel like it’s when you have a clear out of old clothes. Like you have loads of stuff going on, but what bits are actually important and going to drive you forwards? Got to spring clean your life and start cutting out the things which aren’t propelling your development as a person and your happiness. Stop trying to please everyone and just do you.
