That “stay positive” mantra is cute but it ain’t realistic. Constant positivity is a form of avoidance, and not a valid solution to your problems. Sometimes life is fucked up, and the healthiest thing your ass could do is admit it. And I understand that you have to stay positive in order to receive the benefit in “shitty situations”. I’m referring to those who use it all the time in order for them to not confront the real problem at hand. Problems do not solve themselves by you “staying positive”. Stop trying to avoid the issue and deal with it head on because the longer you wait, the longer whatever you’re running from will be an issue.
When you work at something you dislike, it can bring enormous stress and anxiety to your life. But when you work at something you truly love, it invigorates and inspires you constantly. Since we often have to tackle work or obligations that we dislike, we may feel that those things we dislike will dictate the tone of our day and affect our mood. But it doesn’t have to be that way. You may be involved in something now that you aren’t wild about, but if you could find something to like about it, it might change your outlook.
To everyone that’s wronged me even when I was right to them, I forgive you. Even if you aren’t sorry. My heart is happy, regardless. I wish you well and I pray karma doesn’t do too much damage to you even though you deserve whatever comes your way.
You cause pain to the people you outgrow, when you stay attached to them.
Parents will “protect” their daughters from men they allowed their son to grow up to be. We will always have to teach our daughters to be careful of men if we do not teach our sons how to treat women. While giving your daughter a crash course on “how to behave” in order to not be raped by men teach your sons about consent and they’re not entitled to a woman’s body!
Sidebar: People don’t want to teach accountability. They’d rather accept that people are evil and teach others to avoid them. Makes me sick.
My favorite game is “Is this my depression or is it an inherent quality that I need to confront”.
don’t attach it to anything nor anyone— freedom is gripping the pursuit with your own hands, even if they hurt. even if they bleed. the more you access this picture, the sturdier your frame becomes. you’ll be happier. your relationships, stronger. watch it make sense.
