Do people really have it together or do they just do it differently than you? What makes someone put together? What is the recipe and why do we compare ourselves to others? Just because that person got up at 5 am, took a jog, cooked and cleaned all before 7 am doesn’t mean they’re more together than you. Maybe those people are naturally early risers and they go to bed by 8 pm. Guess what you can wake up at noon and still get things done and be productive and then go to bed at 2 am, who makes the rules? One isn’t better than the other because it’s more mainstream or more acceptable.
Maybe you do things in stages and not all at once and that’s okay too. Stop policing yourself based on others. Accept yourself and love yourself and be who you are in all your glorious weirdness and quirks. I am not the get-up and make breakfast kind of woman. Occasionally I do it but mostly I don’t. I spent years being way too hard on myself because I felt less than for doing things differently or not doing them at all. I have chocolate for breakfast or even cake because I can. I eat in the living room. I drink soda all day and curse like a sailor and it’s okay. I am no June Cleaver but more like Peggy Bundy and Roseanne Barr and I like it plenty that way.
Be yourself, embrace it and let others’ opinions go. The sooner you accept your differences as being just different, not worse or better than, the happier you will be. Wake up when you wake up and be so perfectly and weirdly you.
