It’s ok to feel Down

After a massively stressful day at work today; which involved messy work, yelling, chaos, and negativity, I clocked out, went into my car, and completely lost it. I could not get back together until I got home and laid down for a bit. I’ve realized that after everything that has happened, it’s ok to do that. Its ok to have a complete meltdown after so much has happened lately. Even if nothing has really happened it’s ok to do so. I always come back stronger and stronger every time I have a breakdown. 

I give this message because I have met and talked to so many people who constantly beat themselves down. Now we all know deep down that negative self-talk and beating ourselves up doesn’t work. But, some people were raised or influenced to believe otherwise. Telling yourself; “I could do so much better than that” or “I just need to suck it up and get over it” or “What the hell am I doing?” or “I’m pathetic to be getting worked up over something like this” and so on. More importantly so is telling yourself (or others) to immediately calm down during a point where we are not in the state of mind to be able to calm down.

Instead of telling yourself or others to calm down, suck it up, get over it, let it go, etctry saying “Just breathe”. That is the best thing we can do in these kinds of situations. Breathing and allowing yourself to break is what helps make us stronger in the end. Letting ourselves work through it so we can drop the weight from our shoulders is so so much better than holding it within. Stuffing gunk deeper within the bank of our subconscious will never help, but only drag you down to the point where you have no choice, but to break. 

So, let yourself break. Let yourself breathe. Let yourself be. =)

Nymph

263233

I wish you’d see what I’d see.

Don’t you see?

I’m just a nymph.

A lonely nymph that everyone runs away from.

It doesn’t matter if its a bird, deer, rabbit, human, or any other critter….

They all just run away from me.

But why?

Why do you run from me?

Maybe its the way I look.

I have not been able to see my reflection for over one hundred years now.

I look at the water from time to time, only to find no reflection.

Why do I have no reflection?

My hands always feel so cold, but everything I touch feels warm.

But I’m not dead, am I?

I don’t crave blood, nor guts from anyone or anything.

I just wish for love, compassion, and company from others.

You see?

This is why I have you here now.

I’m lonely and am so tired of it.

Just some company with you is all I could ever ask for.

I had to tie you down to a tree stump near a hollow cave with which I reside in.

I’m sorry, but I just did not want anyone to run away from me anymore.

You thought about it as you cowered in fear as I interrupted you making love to your partner.

When I saw you from afar, I thought to myself how pretty you looked.

Your long, black hair, green eyes, fine skin, and a gentle sweet smell of something I cannot describe.

I just wanted to spend time with you, I’m truly sorry for harming your partner.

You see though, he got in my way. So I had to end his life just for you to take a little bit of time from yours.

So, now its just you and me. Isn’t that great?

Why do you keep cowering in fear over me? Why does everyone scream, cower, or run from me?

What did I do to deserve this?

Since you don’t want to spend time with me, I’ll have to go find someone else to spend time with.

I’ll gladly add you to my collection.

CreepsMcPasta by Alex Snow 2016

5 total photo shuffle

I originally showed this to Creeps quite some time ago (earlier this year, but I can’t quite remember when. Thinking it was maybe in the spring-summer time). Again I wish to express my gratitude to one who has inspired me greatly with his great talent for the horror and macabre. Unfortunately I lost this piece as I was moving earlier this year. I still have the photos in my possession. I still cannot express how grateful I am for you and your talent. Its really helped me get by for I was in a really dark place this year. I don’t know what I would have done if it wasn’t for you and your creative content that continues to inspire me and many others. Thank you Creeps. -Alex
