14 Struggles That All People Who Stay Up Late Would Understand

14 Struggles That All People Who Stay Up Late Would Understand

I remember those nights that I got so caught up with my thoughts that I could not sleep, and it made me want to write this. Because it is hell when you are not like every other person, and you are not sleeping at the hour you are supposed to.

As children, whether we wanted it or not our parents pushed us to go to bed at a particular hour. But as we grew older what was popular and known to us become unknown. Parties and trying to make sure we are ready for our exams made us take the night to be the day. And so when we become victims of staying up late we should understand these:

1. You can watch TV or late night shows

    This seems to be your only companion. Everyone in the house must have gone to sleep and left you with your lonely fate.

    2. You have got no one to pick up your calls

      You may feel that you can catch up with a longtime pal but unfortunately they are either asleep or do not want to be disturbed by someone who should be sleeping.

      3. You then have to try and call someone you swore you will never call again

        You wouldn’t have done this, but you are so worked up about being lonely that you reach out to someone who has hurt you in the past.

        4. You can see your life in just one night

          Yes, your life from past to future plays before you in your thoughts. You make plans and adjust scenarios that shouldn’t have happened.

          5. You go to bed and force yourself to sleep

            You want to pretend you are asleep and try to be like everyone else. But you are stuck. Being in bed is like having a date with boredom because it helps you to worry and imagine that will never happen.

            6. You think the night is longer than the day

            Thinking

              Your mind starts playing tricks on you. You feel the night is a longer period than the day. You really can’t wait for daylight to come. Yet you manage to force yourself to sleep and make the most out of what you have left of the night.

              7. Your neighbors say you are different

              Brain

                Everyone living around you tells you to get a life and get your act together. They don’t understand you because they can just figure out why someone uses the night to be active rather than being in bed.

                8. You don’t have the best of days

                  You wake up and have to be like every other person who slept all through the night. Even the thought of it saddens and weakens you. You really wish you could have a normal night sleep because your days are abnormal.

                  9. You are eating breakfast when others are having their lunch

                    When you finally get some sleep, you wake up really late. You wake up so late you have to eat late as well.

                    10. You are not understood by anyone

                      Everyone thinks you are either selfish or you are on intentional mission to upset the plans of nature. It is as if the all world is angry at you.

                      11. You are always waking up guilty

                        You wake up feeling bad about your sleeping habits. You convince yourself you will work hard at sleeping early.

                        12. You are inquisitive about your environment

                          You sleep so late that you expect anything to pop out and make you frightened. You are suspicious about every sound you hear.

                          13. You make plans to fix your life
                          tumblr_n2uqp6ZVS01qikmd9o1_500

                            Everything that is going wrong in your life has to be fixed with the strategy you devise on this night. You are all worked up and figuring out to make things right in your life.

                            14. You become lazy
                            12e7a4fac133b44ffe793d9a958304d0

                              The only thing that seems to be working is your mind. You are lazy and though you want to do so much, you are stuck with either watching TV or binge watching movies on Netflix.

                              7 Powerful Questions To Find Out What You Want To Do With Your Life

                              7 Powerful Questions To Find Out What You Want To Do With Your Life

                              What do I want to do with my life? It’s a question all of us think about at one point or another.

                              For some, the answer comes easily. For others, it takes a lifetime to figure out.

                              It’s easy to just go through the motions and continue to do what’s comfortable and familiar. But for those of you who seek fulfillment, who want to do more, these questions will help you paint a clearer picture of what you want to do with your life.

                              1. What are the things I’m most passionate about?

                              The first step to living a more fulfilling life is to think about the things that you’re passionate about.

                              What do you love? What fulfills you? What “work” do you do that doesn’t feel like work? Maybe you enjoy writing, maybe you love working with animals or maybe you have a knack for photography.

                              The point is, figure out what you love doing, then do more of it.

                              2. What are my greatest accomplishments in life so far?

                              Think about your past experiences and the things in your life you’re most proud of.

                              How did those accomplishments make you feel? Pretty darn good, right? So why not try and emulate those experiences and feelings?

                              If you ran a marathon once and loved the feeling you had afterwards, start training for another one. If your child grew up to be a star athlete or musician because of your teachings, then be a coach or mentor for other kids.

                              Continue to do the things that have been most fulfilling for you.

                              3. If my life had absolutely no limits, what would I choose to have and what would I choose to do?

                              Here’s a cool exercise: Think about what you would do if you had no limits.

                              If you had all the money and time in the world, where would you go? What would you do? Who would you spend time with?

                              These answers can help you figure out what you want to do with your life. It doesn’t mean you need millions of dollars to be happy though.

                              What it does mean is answering these questions will help you set goals to reach certain milestones and create a path toward happiness and fulfillment. Which leads to our next question …

                              4. What are my goals in life?

                              Goals are a necessary component to set you up for a happy future. So answer these questions:

                              Once you figure out the answers to each of these, you’ll have a much better idea of what you should do with your life.

                              5. Whom do I admire most in the world?

                              Following the path of successful people can set you up for success.

                              Think about the people you respect and admire most. What are their best qualities? Why do you respect them? What can you learn from them?

                              You’re the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.[1] So don’t waste your time with people who hold you back from achieving your dreams.

                              Spend more time with happy, successful, optimistic people and you’ll become one of them.

                              6. What do I not like to do?

                              An important part of figuring out what you want to do with your life is honestly assessing what you don’t want to do.

                              What are the things you despise? What bugs you the most about your current job?

                              Maybe you hate meetings even though you sit through 6 hours of them every day. If that’s the case, find a job where you can work more independently.

                              The point is, if you want something to change in your life, you need to take action. Which leads to our final question …

                              Advertising

                              7. How hard am I willing to work to get what I want?

                              Great accomplishments never come easy. If you want to do great things with your life, you’re going to have to make a great effort. That will probably mean putting in more hours the average person, getting outside your comfort zone and learning as much as you can to achieve as much as you can.

                              But here’s the cool part: it’s often the journey that is the most fulfilling part. It’s during these seemingly small, insignificant moments that you’ll often find that “aha” moments that helps you answer the question,

                              “What do I want to do with my life?”

                              So take the first step toward improving your life. You won’t regret it.
