“There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept responsibility for changing them.” ~Denis Waitley
Many people are constantly waiting for their life to start. “When I’m older I’ll do this” and “In a few years I’ll do that.” They think the life they are experiencing is boring and meaningless.
Who has never viewed himself/herself as worthless and unattractive?
In others’ eyes, you are always “the funny one” and became loud and overconfident to mask what I was actually feeling, but few people know about the way you felt.
All of us may suffer with depression and frustration, lose guidance and support, need aids physically, emotionally, or spiritually.
Just think like this way:
“This too shall pass.”
Horrible feelings I am feeling will eventually go away.
I need to stop feeling so sorry for myself and actually want to change. I am an incredibly lucky person who have come from a family who love and support my whole life.
I had to be the one to make the decision to change my way of thinking.
All the good things and all the wonderful people in my life would pass eventually too. While I am feeling miserable, my life is still going on and I am missing out on appreciating those precious moments.
We all have horrible things happen to us that will affect each of us differently.
The important thing to remember is that our problems aren’t what define us. What defines us is how we deal with what has happened to us; how we change the way we think about it.
We can either let it become us or we can use our new found wisdom to change the little bit of world around us all.
There’s something much bigger than us and our problems. It is always important to remember that there is always someone who is in a position much worse than our own.
Nevertheless, I am well on the way to becoming the person I want to be and I have goals and expectations of myself. I am now aware that my life has started.
It started years ago and it’s not nearly over yet. It’s happening right now. Yours is too.
