#FridayFeeling – easier to let things go?

Yesterday and today were not easy for me. Nothing major, but plenty of various annoyances occurred in the last two days. Normally, I am excited for the weekend on Thursday night, but this time around I did not feel the weekend vibe until I actually left work on Friday.

While it might not have registered as the weekend eve to me, subconsciously, I must have known. Why? Because it was easier for me to let go of things today. Every little thing that happened shook my foundation, but only for a brief moment. I found myself saying: “It’s the weekend. Why do you care? Just chill.” At least that was what my subconscious was telling me.

It was pretty interesting to see how things just did not matter to me as much as they would earlier in the week. That got me thinking.

Do you get more stressed out on Monday, or on Friday?

To me, the annoyances are magnified on Monday, because that just shows what is up ahead (negative things). And on Friday, I seem to be able to handle things more easily, because I know the weekend is coming, and there will be less opportunities for annoyances.

Of course, this does not only apply to work/ work week. It also applies to when you are going on vacation.

Do you shrug things of easily, because you know you will be relaxing/ doing enjoyable things soon enough?

And it is like that with anything else in life – the more you have piled on your plate, the more you stress. The more annoyed you get. It is easier for you to get overwhelmed. Whereas the same thing would not be as destructive when you do not have much else going on.

I am not sure if this makes sense to you. I sure hope it does. Think about it. To me, this realization enables me to be more conscious of the time and place of annoyances. I will try and treat it individually, without thinking of what it means for the time to come.

Have you had any revelations today?

How are you feeling today?

Enjoy your weekend!

Stay golden,

  1. I have just woken up now on the Saturday morning. Definitely feel better now.
    I don’t Fridays much. I have lost all motivation by then. And even when I am home, I am too tired to do anything.
    Yesterday we went to bed at 9:30!!
    Not to mention I had a shit day yesterday and was blamed for something I did do, but it was needed.

    I am brighter on Mondays and I don’t them too much.
    Sundays evenings are what kill me. 💀

    1. 9.30 really is early, but I found myself wanting to go to bed earlier on Fridays, too. Usually, if I have the next day off, I stay up later than usual, but I can’t do it on Fridays.
      I’m sorry you had a shit day, too. But remember you are going to be out of that life soon enough. The stars must be wrongly aligned for us both to have had a bad day.

      Don’t even talk to me about Sunday evenings! I will try and occupy myself for most of the day tomorrow, so I don’t notice it approaching.

    1. No, I don’t dislike my job.
      Are there other things that I’d rather do instead, sure.
      The annoyances I mention in this post are with people. And it so happens that I have more interactions with humans during the week rather than the weekend. So THAT is really the issue.
      Thanks for dropping by.

  3. Q – Do you get more stressed out on Monday, or on Friday?
    A – Neither. Every day is exciting there isn’t enough time in each one, that’s the only down side. So much to learn and so many things to try.

    Q – Do you shrug things of easily, because you know you will be relaxing/ doing enjoyable things soon enough?
    A – I don’t shrug anything off. I don’t try to control my emotions. I like to watch them cause chaos or peach whenever they feel the need. Although I don’t really feel much of either anymore. I just seem to be in a constant state of curiosity.

    Q – Have you had any revelations today?
    A – Yes. I realized that I truly love leftover fried rice.

    Q – How are you feeling today?
    A – Energized

    1. I like your attitude towards appreciating every day, because we only have so many/
      An interesting statement regarding emotions. Does that chaos (they cause) not cause problems for you? And why don’t you think you feel anymore?
      Sounds like it’s a good day for you. Or was, since I think you wrote that yesterday. I hope today is as well.

      1. You stated — “Does that chaos (they cause) not cause problems for you? ”

        My response — Chaos is simply a state of the environment. How you respond determines if you have a problem or not. I would also argue that chaos brings opportunity where the opposite is rarely true.

        You stated — “why don’t you think you feel anymore?”

        My response — I never said that I only stated I don’t feel much emotion. It could be a side effect of critical thinking, but I seem to rarely get emotional since I started studying Philosophy. (Not sure why)

        1. I’m all for chaos. I agree that it can bring a lot of opportunities. However, I think this is mainly true for your own internal conflict. In my experience, such chaos when 3rd parties are involved can cause a disaster.

          I actually understand that. For me, it’s because I am nowadays more analytical and introspective. And so I try to rationally assess a situation before emotions get in the way.

          1. You stated — “And so I try to rationally assess a situation before emotions get in the way.”

            My response — Not me, (I used to), now I don’t take part in trying to control it. It’s better to watch as it runs its course, in the end things are much better if emotions are not controlled.

            Although I can honestly say I know what you’re talking about, it’s very uncomfortable to watch as things run their natural course. Feelings are hurt from time to time but the benefit at the end is better understanding and better relationships.

            I have learned that instead of controlling emotions try to find out what they feed on and change the desire to create them.

            For example; I used to get angry when people disagreed with me so instead of controlling my anger, I simply started examining the need I had for people to agree with me. Over time I found that it was really a hindrance to obtaining knowledge. Now I welcome alternative ideas, being right no longer has any value. Now I just want to understand why people believe what they believe and the more I push them for answers the more I learn.
