Scatter Brained

We all have those moments, when we are working or should be working on something but then life happens. We can’t seem to focus on what we should be doing because we have a thousand other things or we have one thing that we need to figure out but are avoiding so we “pretend” like we aren’t thinking about it and try to focus on something else. Have you ever noticed that when you try to focus on something else and attempt to ignore the “one thing” you can’t or don’t want to deal with, that you seem to be unable to focus on anything?

Life is a curious thing right. We all have different experiences and situations we go through growing up and in our daily lives, but the emotions is what creates the feelings of relating. I can’t say that I know what it is like to have nothing, because I have never been there. I can say that I can relate to be scared, worried, fearful, depressed, anxious and all the other feelings that might come with such an event. There are times that what events we go through seem to be irrelevant almost, but what we feel when we go through events.

It’s almost funny the things we avoid talking about, when if we would just open up about them then we would probably be able to be happier. Life isn’t so easy though and sometimes we fool ourselves into thinking that we can forget or just push away something without having to deal with it and everything will be ok. We find out though, that life has other plans. If we could just avoid or run away from our problems, then what really would be the point? We get our strength from our ability to deal with the hard stuff, even things that we shouldn’t have to deal with in the first place.

We all use different methods to heal from or deal with things. The healthy ways are something like this a blog, writing, art, exercise or a thousand other ways, but the important thing is really dealing. I have an issue with dealing with things. It would be easy to point a finger here or there, but in all honesty we have to take responsibility for our own lives and how we live them. We can always learn or be taught how we should deal with what bothers or upsets us, we just have to take the time to figure it out.

Often we are scared to know ourselves and it’s easier to just go on with life, because it never stops then to stop and deal with things. I think the longer that we put something off and deny it’s affect on our life then the harder everything else will be. There is no right way to deal with something or to figure something out. We are scattered brained for one reason or another, but do you want to live your whole life trying to find something to distract you from the one thing you need to deal with or just deal with it and have your whole life ahead of you? Life at times really does seem that simple.
