She sighed once more as her daughter continued to wriggle around on the blanket. “Amelia Anne, stop moving.” She demanded, but the girl paid no heed to her and attempted to roll onto her little, bloated stomach. Y/N was a tad bit impatient; they had joined Ashton on tour a couple of days ago, and she was already stressed. Amelia wouldn’t dare part from her father, since it was the first time she had seen him in the flesh in months, and she wouldn’t even listen to her mother. Ashton was off preparing for the show they had that evening, leaving Y/N with the dependent two year old. She had finally rid Amelia of her nappy, but the girl began rolling around once given the chance.

I THINK THE REASON I ALWAYS GIVE UP ON STUFF SO EASILY IS BECAUSE IT NEVER TOOK MUCH EFFORT FOR ME TO LEARN/DO THINGS SINCE MOST OF THE TIME I LEARN AND APPLY CONCEPTS REALLY EASILY BC IM GIFTED
SO WHEN I GET TO SOMETHING THAT DOESNT IMMEDIATELY WORK WHEN I TRY TO APPLY IT MY BRAIN IS JUST LIKE “ALRIGHT WELL THIS ISNT WORKING” BECAUSE I USUALLY GET THINGS RIGHT AWAY
BUT FOR SOME STUFF IT DOESNT WORK LIKE THAT. IT TAKES TIME AND PRACTICE, ESPECIALLY IN CASES WHERE IM TRYING TO UNLEARN A HABIT AND REPLACE IT WITH A BETTER ONE
BUT I GENERALLY DON’T RECOGNIZE THAT BECAUSE MY WHOLE LIFE IVE BEEN LED TO BELIEVE “IM SMART SO I’LL ALWAYS GET THE HANG OF THINGS SUPER EASILY”
AND WHEN THAT WASNT THE CASE, I JUST BROKE DOWN.
AND IT’S A STRUGGLE.
IT’S A STRUGGLE TRYING TO UNLEARN MY FALSE PERCEPTIONS OF THE EFFORT I NEED (OR DON’T NEED) TO PUT INTO THINGS.
IT’S A STRUGGLE ACTUALLY HAVING TO WORK FOR THINGS WHEN I’D NEVER FELT LIKE I HAD TO BEFORE.
IT’S A STRUGGLE TO BE CALLED LAZY FOR TRYING TO DO STUFF I NEVER LEARNED HOW TO HANDLE AND FAILING BECAUSE I DIDNT KNOW HOW TO HANDLE IT AND GIVING UP BECAUSE IT ALWAYS WORKED THE FIRST TIME BEFORE SO IT SHOULD STILL WORK THE FIRST TIME.
IT’S A STRUGGLE TO FEEL GUILTY, ANXIOUS, AND WORTHLESS WHENEVER I DONT GET THINGS PERFECT THE FIRST TIME EVERY TIME.
IT’S A STRUGGLE TO FEEL LIKE IM OVERREACTING BECAUSE “OTHER PEOPLE DONT HAVE PROBLEMS LIKE THIS SO I MUST JUST BE WEAK AND STUPID.”
