During exchange you’re always bound to have either great days or days that leave you at the end of the day feeling empty inside. This is normal for every person regardless of where they are. We all have been at our worst and we have the ability to bounce back and get out of bed the next morning.
It’s alright to have a shitty day once in a while. We’re only human and sometimes things just don’t go as planned. At the end of the day it’s all up to you to try to be positive or to let it disrupt your happiness beyond belief. I am one to believe everything happens for a reason and that reason can be good sometimes. For example: your significant other left you but maybe the next person you find will be better for you or maybe you’ll find that you’re happier alone. Or you lost your job but the next one you find may be one that you are so happy doing that you do it for the rest of your life.
I wrote one thing this week for my future self when I was feeling down and very stressed: “It’s always up to me on days like these and any other day to look back and say that I can make it through all this and to get out of bed the next morning and keep going. It’s up to me to decide that halfway around the world I can either not let anything stop me or I can just throw in the towel and give in. I have an absolutely amazing opportunity to be here and I shall not waste it.” I was stressed this week because I feel bad for not being able to participate much in school and because my Danish is coming along very slowly and for both of those reasons I feel extremely left out of a lot of things going on.
No matter how bad it gets and no matter how often you just want to stay in bed you can make it through any day and make what you want out of it.Remember to take time to do the things that make you happiest.
Readers should not worry about me for I am happy and have already gotten through my share of bad days for the time being.
