It’s 2am

 It’s s 2am and the whole world is silent

And you are forced to listen to your own thoughts 

And that voice inside your head gets louder 

Your regrets get stronger

You question every decision you made

At 2am your thoughts, the world is asleep

you aren’t 

And your thoughts get louder

You can’t seem to stop them

They’re too loud 

Its 2am and you want to scream 

Because your thoughts are already doing that inside your mind

The demons under your bed seem less scary than the ones inside your head;

You can’t seem to face your naked thoughts 

Your thoughts, so pure, so resonating 

You can’t escape it. 

Your mind turns into a radio, you can’t shut down

Its 2am and the world’s dreaming 

But your thoughts become words

Unfiltered , real. 

You might regret them the next morning, 

But they’re said 

After all it’s 2am.

(i literally wrote this, sleep deprived, at 2am . might not make a lot of sense.)

Someone recently told me how they hated feeling “down” /sad. And they needed some quick fixes.

-listen to some sad songs/watch sad videos. Cry it out. I usually do that.

-talk to friends/anybody.

-watch a rom-com.I feel like they are made for nights like these.

-watch FRIENDS.

-dance around for a bit. Works every time.

– have a talk with yourself. You should be your own best friend. Vv important.

-embrace your ‘sad feeling.’ don’t shun it away in pretense of being a “strong” ¬†person. Been there, done that. Doesn’t end well.

-take a shower. Cold/hot whatevz. Just make yourself clean. Cleaning your body helps cleansing your mind.

-sometimes i make myself look nice by trying out different hairstyles etc and that distracts me and it works. (narcissism! It works!)

-write about it. Vent it out.

-hugs. I used to be a person who hated hugs. Now i want one on a regular basis. Hugs are #1 stress relievers.

-read your old facebook statuses/captions. Will make you cringe and happy that you’ve grown a lot from then.

-sleep it off.
Of course there isn’t a specific way to make yourself feel better. Some days, you won’t be able to feel better. Some days you wouldn’t WANT to feel better(been there). ¬†That’s okay. As long as you keep trying, the next day. Being sad is not a disease. It isn’t a sign of weakness. Don’t treat it like one.
