So I felt quite tired today. When I woke up, the first thought that came to my mind after seeing that it was 5:16 am was, “go back to sleep”. I did not feel well rested, and the comfort of my bed, and the cold outside my warm blankets were all things that discouraged me from getting up. And then I told myself, and I quote, “You can sleep when you’re dead.”
And as many of you might have guessed, I got up. I commented back on my videos, and checked my other social media. And by 5:30, I was at my laptop typing away and sipping some tea.
So what is the moral here? There are times when you have to be hard on yourself. And most of the time you will know how you need to react to yourself by the way you are acting. The acts usually call for their counterparts.
So if you are acting weak, then you most probably need to act strong.
If you’re acting strong, then most likely, you need to soften up a bit.
And in this case, since I was acting weak, by telling myself that I was too tired to get up from bed, and that I don’t want to be cold outside, I became strong, and told myself that I could sleep when I’m dead. And once I said that, even though I was split on that statement, by giving that tough front, I was forced to wake up, because you’re not going to say something that big, and then act weak right after. These types of phrases set the bar of action, or call of duty, and they demand a certain amount of strength, capability, and respect.
So whenever you find yourself acting weak and tired, and wanting to give up, be hard on yourself, and tell yourself that,
"You can sleep when you're dead."
