*Takes deep breath* if I may, can I just express myself a little. I am so tired. I was really looking forward to a good week ahead, but I’m just tired, annoyed and frustrated and we are not even mid way through the year. I honestly feel like shutting down a lot of what I started because it feels pointless when people mess you about. Everything I do, I do with passion and out of love, and I’m just so tired now, because when you put your heart and soul into it all, for you to not be taken seriously,literally invest everything you have so you not only benefit but people you care about benefit also, it just makes me cry. I do so much on my own, have little to no help or support and put my all into it to get back nothing or little in return, or either be insulted or disrespected. I endure so much heartache which something I have to deal with my whole life and in all honesty, I have not felt like this in a while, but I just want to give up. Not sure why I’m posting this on IG, but I’m fed up and just tired. ? I am always trying to be positive, like all I want to do is put positivity out there in the world, there’s nothing like positive energy, but my heart can’t take some shit sometimes. Sorry to spoil your morning, hope I can come with a positive post next.
