The 5 Stages of Misery that you shouldn’t allow yourself to experience
- By Yara El komaty -
I always thought that keeping my feelings inside and my emotions in check makes me a happier stronger person. I thought that by time these feelings will go away, but not only did they increase, they got worse as well. I discovered that you don’t move on when you put the unpleasant things behind your back, you move on when you get them out once and for all.
Ever listened to “Six Degrees of Separation” by “The Script”?? Same Same but different! Here are the 5 Stages of Misery that you shouldn’t allow yourself to experience.
That phoney smile you wore to work today, that ‘I’m fine, I really am fine’ when deep inside your guts you know that you’re everything but fine. Its the smile that finally wears-off at night when you’re alone with your thoughts, these thoughts that go from your mind and crawl down to consume your whole body.
You try to rest your thoughts, you try to numb your feelings, you’re silent most of the times and your friends constantly ask “what is wrong with you?”, but do you know what’s wrong with you?
- Lack of knowledge
You’ve been denying your feelings far too long that you can’t put your hands on exactly what’s upsetting you, it’s usually loads of things not just one.
You’re angry at yourself for not knowing, you’re angry at yourself for keeping it all inside of you longer than you should have, you’re angry at the closest people to you that failed to warn you of the darkness you’ve been keeping yourself in. You think you’re angry when actually you’re just sad.
The ugliest stage, when you come to understand what you’ve gotten yourself into, what a dark place you’re in, and finding-out that getting-out is harder than you think.
