On Negative Self-Talk

I'm writing this blog because I literally just caught myself saying, "Ugh. I've been such a useless slug today," and well, that isn't very nice. That being said, I am sure I am not alone in this feeling, and I guess I just wanted to remind anyone who is reading this blog that you don't have to be perfect every day.


Today, I am tired from a wedding I went to this weekend and struggling to adjust back to everyday life.


I am also doing my best, and I'm sure you are, too.


So what if we spent a little too much time on social media or let the to-do list be a to-do list for just a little while longer?


Modern life is nothing if not an endless to-do list, and sometimes, things can just wait. Sometimes, we don't have to feel guilty for resting.


And the Reality Behind the Photos You See


I really don't have anything else to say, but I felt this was important. I may have shared a glamorous photo of the absolutely beautiful wedding I was invited to attend, but I also want to share:


  • the FOMO of all the weddings I didn't get invited to (even though I know those decisions were never personal).

  • the slow transition back into everyday life after a weekend away.

  • the feeling of being overwhelmed.

  • the feeling that I'm not doing enough.

  • the feeling that I'm not even good enough to share, or that social media is somehow insincere.

  • the feeling of being alone after being surrounded by people all weekend and missing my friends.

  • the mental image of me laying on top of a pile of clean laundry from last week and stepping over the weekend bag I still haven't unpacked because I just can't today.



In this moment, I caught myself being cruel and decided to be gentle instead. I hope you extend yourself the same kindness -- today and every day.


Mental health is important, and I am continually learning more about it and trying to grow.


If you need someone to talk to, please don't hesitate to send me a message or email me at loganrosereadsandwrites at gmail dot com.


At the very least, let this blog be a reminder that you're not alone.
