Oftentimes, we focus on what isn’t working for us. We hone in on all the situations that went bad and all the elements of those situations that were supposed to go right, but didn’t for some reason or another. When things start going bad, sometimes it feels like life is purposely picking on us. We may contract the ‘Why me?’ attitude and blame everything and anything on others. Maybe we won’t blame it on others but will just come to a conclusion that, “Life sucks.”
After a bit of contemplation, we could realize that we don’t have to stick with the, ‘Why me?’ attitude and we don’t have to sum up our recent misfortunes to the clustered synopsis that, “Life sucks”. We don’t have to blame the mishaps and faults on others either. If we focus on what we could do to manage the downside of life and pin point possible solutions to ease the load then maybe, just maybe we could deal with life a little differently.
It’s up to us to solve the problems that come our way. How those annoying bumps in the road occur is not our business. How we get over or around them is. Relying on others to get us through those bumps is okay but to ride the roughness on our own is much more rewarding. In the end the world is not enough for us to get by. We need to learn to rely just on ourselves.
