Snakes and Ladders

Life is like a game of snakes and ladders, you are competing with other people to get to goal, the 100. It may not be an actual challenge like a promotion or good exam results but an emotional well-being. People can often put others down to build themselves up or secure themselves, this can be done subconsciously too, it can be one of the snakes in life.

However, unlike the game of Snakes and Ladders we don’t have to move only at certain times or move as a lone party, we can choose to group together and achieve something. Get to that goal faster.

Working in a group can also help with the snakes in life, the set backs and obstacles we can face. Yes, we may still face them and fall behind but we have people to catch us, to stop the fall being so long sometimes and other times to support you when/if you do fall far, let you know it’s alright and that you can get back up again.

The group might also stay with you, you might be friends or become new friends, and help you with other challenges in life. This will also mean that you will have to support them to, it works both ways. To receive the support you must also be willing to give it or eventually it will break off and stop.

I guess the moral of this post is that having people to support you can make challenges you face seem less tough and long, as if you have a foot up and that they may be one of the ladders you can take to get there faster. You also needs to be there for other people, whether it’s through words, actions or both.

If you don’t have anybody right now you will in time and you can accomplish things on your own, it is possible.

Just remember not to take others turns forcefully, don’t bully or disrespect to get your way no matter what as that’s not a ladder in life, its foul play.

P.S Listen to the song Hearts and Flowers by SayWeCanFly. I listened to it while writing this blog and it’s one of my favourites right now!

Broken emotions

This is something that I feel a lot, that my feelings don’t quite work, or well, my emotions..

I don’t mean that I don’t feel them but I have trouble to show them, especially things such as excitement and happiness which often leads people to be disappointed because they don’t think I feel the way they expected. Am I the only one who does this?

I have the same problem with other emotions, I feel them but I have trouble expressing them so that other people understand and often get asked if I was being sarcastic or not, which I’m glad people do as I don’t want them getting the wrong message.

If you know anyone like this or you are like this then don’t worry because there will always be little signs that people will eventually pick up on. For example; when I get excited a lot I blink a lot I’ve been told by someone, that could be a sign someone else does. You just have to keep an eye out for them and make sure you are picking up on the right emotion at the time.

This may be a little shorter than usual but I should have something to write about on Sunday night or next Monday night as over the weekend I am going to Comic-Con and cosplaying (I’m doing Clary from The Mortal Instruments, has anyone seen it? ‘Cause I’m obsessed).

So, like if you liked, comment opinions or whatever and subscribe! Your feedback and ideas, experiences and such mean a lot!
