We’re All Messed Up
I’m so tired of hearing about the negativity that’s all around us. I’m tired of reaching out to help people that don’t really want help, they just want attention, sympathy, and to hear themselves! I’m sick of no one seeming to realize that not one of us has any control over anything in this life except our response to what happens to us and around us.
Just because we have opinions and feelings doesn’t mean they are right or wrong. It doesn’t mean that whatever is happening has to change. Our thoughts have absolutely no bearing on the reality around us. They are literally just our thoughts.
So many people believe that they are entitled to whatever they dream up. Get it through your head people…YOU AREN’T ENTITLED TO A DAMN THING. Life happens. Shit gets real. Deal with it!! Stop expecting life to take care of you if you aren’t willing to take care of yourself. Get your ass off the couch, stop sitting on the sidelines and LIVE your life. Play an active roll in what is going on around you. Stand tall, be strong, willingly speak your truth.
Live by the golden rule in all things. Do or say to others around you no matter who they are, only what you would be okay with others around you doing or saying about you. If you have an issue with someone, go talk to them about it and try to sort it out WITH THEM. Don’t talk about your issues with others to anyone else unless you have tried to work it out with the individual and are looking for some valuable insight into ways of personally coping with the outcome.
Stop taking life happenings so personally. Not every post on social media is about you or has anything to do with you at all. Assume that the people in your life who mean something to you have your best interests at heart. Meaning if they criticize you, think about it from a standpoint of love…realize that it was no doubt hard for them to bring up and think about what they’ve communicated. Analyze yourself…are you guilty or not? If so, change! If not, let it go!!
Do not fool yourself into believing that things will be better when…when you win the lottery, when your kids grow up, when you receive the promotion that you’ve been after, when you lose the weight, when you quit smoking, when you get back from vacation, when you find “the one” to spend the rest of your life with. Life will be better when YOU create that for yourself. CHOOSE happiness, CHOOSE peace, CHOOSE positivity.
Your life is and will be as good as you choose to make it. When you focus on everything that’s going wrong, there is no room for what is right in your life. In fact, you draw more of the same negativity and wrong to you. Stop the downward spiral by counting your blessings daily. Post a happy picture to your Instagram, remember a good time you had this week, write in a gratitude journal, pray, plan your next vacation, watch the sunset…there are many ways to shift your focus. But the choice is yours. Don’t wait for someone else to bring you happiness. Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul. That’s what makes you YOU, and that is what this world needs…YOU…not a wanna be replica of what you think you should be…WE WANT THE REAL YOU!!! The good, the bad and everything in between.
