The struggle…

I’ve written about this before, but Depression is something I’ve struggled with in the past. It effects many people all over the world, and most of us keep it hidden due to the stigma that is attached to it. For me depression is a weird one because it comes back out of the blue with no real warning, and no definite way to send it away again. I think I’m always going to struggle with it in one way or another and that’s just something I’ve grown to accept. What helps though is having people around to help and talk to about it. I know for some people it’s hard to understand but it’s a topic that’s very confusing and unless you’ve experienced it or even seen it first hand…you can’t really compare. Like I┬ásaid though its different for everyone, but if you know someone with depression the only thing you can do is be there for them…that’s all.

What women want…

The simplest way to answer this is…truth be told most of us really don’t know. Or if we do…then we’ve probably over thought it and therefore now want too much.

A woman’s mind is always changing…mainly because we think way too much into things, and then by doing so we create other options to answer the question…even if we’ve already chosen something else. One day we will want one thing and the next day it will change. To be honest there is no real logic.

Now I know there’s already way too many jokes about this topic, and that it’s already been overly talked about including the repeated Gif of Ryan Gosling from the film ‘The Notebook’ (What do you want? God damn it, what do you want!). Fair enough that was originally about love, but girls do put way too much thought in the most simplest things…even where to go for lunch! It seems even worse when two girls get together. The simple question of lunch leads to a game of verbal tennis, where the term “I don’t know, you pick” gets thrown back and forth continuously until they reach the conclusion of the option given right at the start.

I’d like to say there’s an easy solution for all of this…but there isn’t. I could even attempt to make you believe that one day this wont be an issue anymore, as if it’s proven by scientific research that girls will evolve to enable them to stop doing this. But again sadly this isn’t something that will happen, you just have to learn to live with it. Either way though there are no winners. From a girl’s point of view you realise how annoying it can be, and can attempt to control in some way but never completely. Then from a guy’s point of view… there’s sadly nothing you can do but make sure the girl who’s having to make decisions around you is one you love very dearly, and therefore you can put up with the frustrations surrounding them. Otherwise for the guy there may be a long road of sadness and annoyance to come.

I think the only real piece of advice you can take from this blog is to never try to understand the way a woman’s mind for decision-making works! Your life is a lot easier and happier when you don’t concern yourself with the confusion, and like I said frustration that comes with all of this!
