Episode # 42 – How to deal with shit?
The first month of 2023 was filled with a lot of shit to deal with. Shit is like an uninvited guest that steps into your life, leaves the door open so more shit can come in and before you know it your life is filled with stacks of shit. Dealing with all this shit gave me the inspiration for this video. How to deal with shit when it travels in packs?
If I scroll through Facebook and see all the happy experiences people are sharing and the “OMG, this is amazing/hilarious/best ever” comments I get curious about the shit in other people’s lives and how they deal with it.
I understand that it’s easy to share a picture of yourself with your feed in the sand, staring into the sunset while you’re drinking a mojito but it gets kind of boring to see the same kind of pictures over and over again.
I’m more interested in what’s going on behind the scenes, in real life. The challenges people have to overcome, the obstacles they have to conquer and how they deal with shit in their life. I feel lucky that I can surround myself with people who I can talk with about my struggles and get some perspective on things. I know that a lot of people feel lonely because not everyone has someone to join them in the arena of vulnerability.
I know there are a lot of people on social media who see the seemingly perfect lives of other people and wonder why their life is not filled with more happiness. The truth is you don’t need to scratch that deep beneath the surface to discover that everybody has personal problems, a sick family member or other tragic elements to deal with. Eventually the snakes will come into everyone’s garden.
Let me tell you about my shit and the perspective it gave me on how to look at it in a more positive way.
