What's nagging you today?

Something feels so off and I feel like I don't even know what I'm doing. Hate when I feel like I've just lost what little control I thought I had.

I’ve had so many days lately where that feeling crept up on me and refused to leave. Really have to distract my mind’s attention in those instances. I hope it eases for you soon though. There’s so much we can’t control in this world and our minds has the talent of reminded us of that for its own amusement. Know what you can control though? Your reaction to it. Yes, we can be rather small in the whole scheme of things, but in our world…in our existence we are a key player in the directions taken. So, try taking some deep breaths. Breaths that can quiet the mind as you concentrate on the cool air coming into your nose. Exiting slowly through your mouth. With each breath attach uncertainty/fear/insecurity/anything weighing you down to it. Be mindful of its attachment and feel a little bit of that weight leave with each exhale.

We get wonky, man. It’s just how we get sometimes and when we’re having to put up a fight often we get off course easily. The mind will remind you of the things you can’t control. But you have to see it as an attack of sorts on yourself. That’s when you buck up and stand firm in the mindset that you’ll do what you can about what can’t be controlled and know the effort put into them has to be good enough. Because it’s all you have to contribute and that’s okay. Each one of us has limits and we have to be okay with that otherwise we’ll end up defeating ourselves harder than anything else ever could. But the things you [i]can [/i]control. Like your reactions. Your breathing. Your saying to yourself I need a minute here. That’s where you have to make your mind really pay the most attention to what’s unfolding before you. It’s like building a muscle. You gotta give the control you do have its proper attention and flex the hell out of it to build it up greater and greater, bringing a shift from what you can’t control…to what you can. It trains your mind to not be such a dick.

2 things. My fingers are freezing from wrapping all the garland around my deck and it’s windy and how come nobody cleans up their leaves?

[@917533,saragoodtimes] they put fresh mulch down in the fall????? I’m so jealous of your perfectly manicured yard.

[@1233412,Benjago] we have a commercial lawnmower that picks them up only the thing is so huge for me and I would take our fences down so I’m using a rake and a small mower. I put my husband up for sale for having his surgery at this time of year by the way, lol.
[@11509,Keepitsimple] they say it protects the roots in winter. sounds logical
[@72117,Degbeme] you must have deserved it

I hate that feeling too... it’s like your waiting for something to blow up. Or it makes me worry that something is terribly wrong with a loved one.
[@15873,HotMessExpress102] I experience the same. Zero rhyme or reason. Just hits like a ton of bricks sometimes. And yes it passes...and then the post storm clean-up begins.
HotMessExpress102 · 41-45, F
[@1233412,Benjago] Keep your broom and dust pan on stand by. I do hope you can shake it off soon. ❤️
[@15873,HotMessExpress102] I'm sure I will, hope you'll be or stay okay as well.

I feel always trapped. The responsibility are limiting me doing things I love. I give up almost everything just to be with them.
[@580819,iamelijah] Shouldn't be any guilt from it...makes sense why you feel so trapped. I hope you can figure it out.
iamelijah · 26-30, F
[@1233412,Benjago] It feels much better expressing it to stranger instead someone closed to me. Thank you very much for that. I'll hope everything goes well for you too.
[@580819,iamelijah] I always feel the same...I guess it's just the impartiality of someone that doesn't know us. I'll not get to know you in case you need it again sometime, lol.
Nagging .. would imply she's actually paying at least some attention to something .. so I can't say wife ..

Mentally draining people
[@1086727,LadyJ] I can vouch. Mentally draining myself today and yea it's a pain in the ass.
Degbeme · 61-69, M
Thinking - What a bunch of pointless noise. Going in circles and nothing here chagnes anything in the real world.
[@1181120,Collectivefragment] Crave the machine, revere the screen, zoom in for some flak and misery.
GreenNatured95 · 22-25, F
I have days like that. I just try my best to just get through the day and hope the next one is better.
[@551428,GreenNatured95] That's what I'm hoping for. Hope your day is all right.
GreenNatured95 · 22-25, F
[@1233412,Benjago] it's alright thanks for asking ❤
Iamonfire666 · 36-40, F
The pain in my left ankle is pretty bad today.
Iamonfire666 · 36-40, F
[@1233412,Benjago] relief never comes. This just happens to be what hurts the most right now but thanks.
[@10165,Iamonfire666] I know...still hope it will let up or you'll at least have something else that gives focus.
Iamonfire666 · 36-40, F
[@1233412,Benjago] thank you

It's just getting cold outside so we're moving into the "Extra Pain" season of the year.
[@1218,theperplexedpanda] As much as I love the cold seasons they do provide some mental fuckery.

The strings of lights on our prelit Christmas tree that won't light. Grrrrrrr!
[@11378,exexec] Very rage inducing.
Stereoguy · 56-60, M
I keep thinking there is something I am supposed to do today, but I can't think of anything I missed. 🤷‍♂️

Have been feeling bad today,
Those days that everything feels a big burden.. Even if it isn't..
Pinkstarburst · 51-55, F
As always, I’m just waiting to see which ball I’m juggling drops next.
Feelings that I cant quite describe but it isn't good
[@1231582,Ladybugrebellion] My theme for the day as well.
WillaKissing · 56-60, T
