Distraction







Jumpsuit - Asos // Jacket - Vintage (Rockit) // Shoes - Asos // Glasses - Urban Outfitters

So a friend recently asked me, how do you help someone who is not used to being alone or doesn't know how to be? I've always been pretty comfortable being by myself. I could hole up and seclude myself for long periods of time as I'm pretty comfortable with my own company. However, I do understand that if you're used to being around people 24/7, the idea of being alone for so long can be a bit daunting. And if you're trying not to think about a situation or a person, then it can be hard to be by yourself. This is why distractions are so so important.

When I say distractions, I don't mean things that will take you away from what you're working towards, I mean good distractions that help you zone out and let you stop thinking so much about something or someone that has been bugging you. For me, my main distraction at the moment is blogging. When I edit photos, I listen to music and I literally zone out completely. When I write up a post I also zone out. Writing and reading have always been good distractions in the past and they still are. Writing I find is very cathartic but if I have a lot on my mind and I don't feel like writing,  I exercise. The gym is one of my favourite distractions. Relying on someone to be a distraction can also be fun but at the same time it's quite dangerous because that person is not always going to be around when you need them. Also, you might end up hurting that person if a distraction is all he/she is to you. All in all, what I'm trying to say, is distractions (the right kinds) are sometimes necessary when life gets a bit too serious.

Also, can I say how much I love this jumpsuit? It's not only ridiculously comfy but it's great in the sense that you can dress it up or down as an outfit for the evening or if you're just lounging around during the day, owing to the fact that it's also a halter-neck. 
Hope everyone is having a lovely week and enjoying their distractions! :)
