Everyday can be a struggle if you look at it in that light. If the first thought on your mind when you wake up is; “Oh, another miserable day in the life of Me”. That is exactly what you’re going to have. Another miserable, pathetic day. More often than not it’s easier to blame everyone and everything else in our lives for our circumstances and not accept responsibility for the things we actually did cause and can ultimately change.
Look at yourself; do you find yourself blaming everyone around you for the things that happen to you? For the things you didn’t get or didn’t work towards because you assumed you wouldn’t get it anyway before you even started? While it is true that we will run into complete assholes in our lives, that may in fact do you wrong; it is still up to us on how we act and respond to it. What they did may have started a negative flow of thoughts and feelings but in the end it is up to you to free yourself from those thoughts and to change your mind to either accept (but not forget) and let what happened go or to become imprisoned with the self destructive poison called Hate and let it destroy your life while falling into a darkening depression. Sometimes you may need a friendly helping hand, sometimes you may not even get that and ultimately it is up to you to stand up.
Stand up and free yourself from yourself. Now how about a few quotes for this beautiful Monday?
