I have many more blessings than burdens. I may have dark thoughts more often than the average person, but it just kind of comes with my personality. I am a complete empath and that affects me greatly.
I am the type of person who spends the majority of her time inside her head exploring the worlds hidden within the corners of her mind, I guess you could say I am a very thought oriented person. This could be seen as a blessing or a curse. Blessing because I think about basically every aspect of everything, and it helps me to better understand things. It also helps me to better understand myself. But it is also a curse because I think about every aspect of everything. In other words, my thoughts are not always happy and joyful. I hold a vast expanse of dark things inside my pretty little head. And it is often these thoughts that plague me at unexpected moments.
"You wake up every morning to face the same demons that left you so tired the night before, and that, my love is bravery." -unknown
I do not know who wrote this quote, but I think about it often because it is so true. Bravery isn't always about doing some courageous act. It's not always facing your fears or standing strong in physical battles. Sometimes bravery is more about what your dealing with inside, your inner demons. And those inner demons can be real awful sometimes. They often give us more issues than anything else. They pull us down into a dark place where we can't always see the good in ourselves. It's scary how one little voice in our heads can whisper one little negative thing in our ear and it starts an avalanche. This quote is encouraging though. It tells us that we are brave when we face these demons. It tells us that we can overcome them. Maybe I'm reading into it to much but this quote always encourages me because it tells me I'm not alone. Everyone has wars waging in their heads. The only difference is who stands up to the demons who still puts a smile on their face, who continues into their life head held high knowing that better things are to come. That is the difference.
"Anyone can show up when you're happy. But the ones who stay by your side when your heart falls apart, they are your true friends."
I am Samantha, and my goal for this blog is to basically share my experiences as a teenager. Basically, I am a teen. I have many hopes and dreams, many fears and insecurities that I let hold me back. There is so much that goes on in my life. Sometimes it is a struggle, and that is what this blog is about.
