Getting over your hardships.

There's a song by the Beatles, and it's called Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da.
Whenever i'm having a bad day and need to be cheered up, or a good day and I want to stay happy, I put this song on repeat and sing along.
The chorus goes:
Ob la di, ob la da,
life goes on, brah,
la la how that life goes on.

It reminds me that no matter what, life will still go on.

Which takes me to what I'm trying to say, how you can get over your hardships.

Find an anchor.
Have that special friend that's always there for you? How about your girlfriend/boyfriend? Whenever you're going through a rough time, you should talk it out. You'll feel better, and have someone that understands, or at least tries to. Use this person as your anchor, or the person who ties you down when everything else has floated away. They'll help you, and keep you sane. Just remember to return that favor.

Don't think about it.
Yeah, this is a pretty tall order, but you have to try hard on this one, or you'll never forget about it. Sure, people say to think about the fun times, but that never helped me. Blast your favorite song, but make sure it's not sad. Techno music is good. Invite your friends over, and do something, Go to the mall, paint, knit, vandalize property for all I care, just make sure you're having fun and it's something where you can forget about the issue.

Stop beating yourself up over it.
Most of the time, when something happens, people blame themselves. It's not your fault! I'm sure even though you're apart of it, nobody blames you. However, if it is your fault, like a fight or something of that sort, apologize, unless you truly don't want to/ don't feel it's necissary. Sometimes, things just have to come to an end.

Accept whatever is weighing you down. Death, heartbreak, fighting? It's all a part of life. It just means you're normal. Everyone has to experience pain, whether is be physical or emotional, once in their life. You just have to accept the situation and make the best of it.

I really hope this blog helps.

And if you want some fun,
take ob la di ob la da!
