There are times when we are tempted to withdraw from the world, sit around, and feel sorry for ourselves. For many of us it is all too easy to get into the rut of complaining about how everything bad only happens to us, and how unfair life is. Some of us also easily complain that other people seem to have everything, and we have so little. When this kind of thinking takes over, it may be time to ask yourself some really tough questions.
Am I in a comfort zone? Is it really too difficult to make the necessary changes to have a better life? Do I really want to get well? What benefits am I possibly getting from choosing to remain stuck? Has my circumstances or my health status become my new identity? Am I always looking in the rear-view mirror, wishing I could rewrite the past? Do I obsess about what could have, should have, would have been?
Don’t give up on your dreams, or your dreams will give up on you ~ John Wooden
Not living with hope for the future will not create the best life possible. Old thinking like “it’s always been this way” will keep things the way they are. And constantly thinking only of broken dreams, disappointments, hurts, or what you may perceive as a failure, will crush your spirit in the end.
There comes a time when we must make the choice to hold on tight to our dreams. We must hold on to our dreams of hope for the best life has to offer. We all deserve the best. We just need to believe we deserve it.
How many times have you heard of someone going through a rough time, only to have whatever was causing their difficulties eventually catapult them into a life that was so much better – even better than they could have ever imagined! Sometimes when it feels like the bottom has fallen out of your world, it could be the very thing that inspires you to achieve great change in your life. Some of the best things may never happen without your world being turned upside down first.
I can’t imagine a person becoming a success who doesn’t give this game of life everything he’s got ~ Walter Cronkite
I am not saying it is easy to stop living in a negative frame of mind. Repetitive thought about a situation, and what we perceive to be going on, becomes our reality. But if we let the regrets of the past live in our head, they surely will destroy our hopeful dreams for the future. Only you can decide to look at the glass half full or half empty. You alone decide what you let reside in your mind. As the saying goes, just be glad that you have a glass at all!
In my opinion it is okay to be angry at life once and a while. Anger is a human emotion. It is when you choose to wallow forever in that pain and anger that problems are created in the body, mind and spirit. When we cling to pain we simply end up torturing ourselves. Some of life’s unhappy experiences are just what is needed for us to adjust our attitude for that hopeful new chapter in our lives.
