I remember Kim Kardashian sitting on her high horse telling women “Get your f*cking *ss up and work. It seems like nobody wants to work these days.” I see so many women and men out here busting their behinds to make ends meet. They’re doing it without nannies, without a wealthy spouse, or wealthy family. Their doing it without millions of social media followers and a nationally syndicated reality show.
Us ordinary folks are facing burnout. We are TIRED!!! Nonetheless, we still get our f*cking *sses up and work. Who really wants to work these days? I’ve been working and paying taxes since I was a teenager. I’m over 40 now and I’m OVER IT!!! I’m sure I’m not the only one tired of working hard. I would rather be on an exotic island sipping pina coladas while sitting at a beachfront infinity pool. But life, Oh this beautiful life has me second questioning every single decision I’ve ever made in my life. Why???? Because it feels like no matter how hard I work, I’m just not seeing the rewards. As soon as you get a check, a bill comes. I’ll likely visit Long Island or Manhattan Island before I ever get down to the Virgin Islands at this point.
I refuse to let anyone who has never experienced my walk in life tell me I’m not walking fast enough or I’m not working hard enough. Move at your pace. Move at your will. Don’t let anyone move you or get in your way. We are all doing the best we can with the circumstances we are under. I know people who work harder than all of the Kardashians put together, unfortunately they are not afforded the same privileges of desirability and wealth. Their hours of work don’t translate to a home in Calabasas or a luxury vehicle. These people are working more than 12 hours a day and it doesn’t translate to a Birkin Bag, trips to the Turks and Caicos, or Dinner at Tao.
Some of us are putting in the work and barely getting by. This is why it is so important to have empathy and humility for others. You don’t know what the next person’s struggle truly is. Life also has a way of humbling people who stand high and look down low at others. Be kind, drink water, mind your business, and get some rest. Happy Healing xoxo
