Life Lessons

This is a Movella filled with life lessons. It's not a story, or full of poems. It is simply full of what I've learnt from life, and what others have learnt.

4. Don't Bottle it Up

Right, this topic is particularly interesting. You guessed it! I have got experience in this department.

Bottling up feelings is a one-way ticket to getting gradually more and more stressed. You need to find a way to vent your emotions. There are various tried and tested methods- all tested by yours truly- that you can let it all out.

Method 1- Talk to someone. If you're struggling with school work, find a teacher and tell them. There is always help for those who need it. If it's family/boy/friend problems, find a really amazing friend to talk to, or confide in another family member, or (I haven't tested this one as I'm such a loner and do not have one) talk to you boyfriend. I know, I know, I haven't tried it, but a good boyfriend, one who really cares- and I have witnessed this- will be there for you through thick and thin.

Method 2- Keep a diary. I do, and it helps. Dream logs are good too, because if you have a good dream you can put it down, if you have a bad one, you do the same, and the same also applies to the down-right weird ones too. Now, diaries are not always as private as we think, so either write with caution, or find an absolutely amazing hiding place for it.

Method 3- If there is a person involved with your stress, writing letters to them venting your feelings is great- but don't send the letter. Burn it. That way, no one gets hurt and you spirits will be automatically uplifted.

Method 4- Find something that can calm you down. Like for me, it's writing, doing scooby-doos or listening to music. Other people find that drawing, playing sport or meditating can help clear their heads. It may not be a perminant solution, none of the methods are, but finding something that can calm you down will give you some you-time where the only person that matters is you.

Method 5- This ties in a bit with the last method, but do some exercise. Boxing is violent and a perfect energy release for all that pent-up stress.

So, whatever you do, even if these methods don't work for you, don't bottle up your feelings, because eventually, you will break down and everything will seem so much worse.
