“Don’t be so hard on yourself.”
“Don’t over-think it.”
“It’s not you, it’s them.”
But the common denominator is..
Me, me, me, me, me..
There I go..
“No one thinks more about you.. than you. They’re too busy thinking about.. themselves.”
I’m sure I don’t even cross their mind.
“Don’t be blue.”
Be unapologetically you!
“Only say sorry with purpose and sincerity. The more the word “sorry” is thrown around, it loses its value.”
“Less is more.”
In more ways than one.
My anxiety and depression make it difficult to follow the pieces of advice I believe in because it’s a constant internal battle.
I care too much..
I don’t care..
It’s like living in my own personal hell.
I am the bully and the victim.
Sprinkle in my OCD to keep things interesting.
I kick my own ass.
Knock some sense into myself.
Hey, it’s okay..
I deserve it.
“Instead of giving yourself a pep talk in a mirror. Look at a photo of yourself.. as a child.. and give her a pep talk [your best advice]. It forces you to change your tone, huh?”
Be kind to her.
“Be kind to yourself.”
She’s doing her best.
And so are you!

Love your writing style Allison, it combines like a clip editing style with a touch of inner surrealism. Feel very related “No one thinks more about you.. than you” “Don´t be blue, be you” It´s Saturday evening and Two Cents triggers my mind. Thanks!

Thank you again Santiago! I think because my mind goes so fast and when I try capture all of it in my writing, my chicken scratch handwriting is difficult to decipher, so it feels choppy sometimes because my hand can’t catch up with my thoughts, haha.. By the way, this prompt was: what piece(s) of advice do you believe but find it hard to follow?
