When and if you become angry
at how you now feel about life
angry at how you look;
angry about regrets;
angry at the things which you feel you are missing out on;
angry at bad decisions made;
angry about past experiences;
angry at certain people;
and you don’t confront that anger and deal with it
then you successfully stifle
your own maturity and development.
If you want to stay in the mire of uncertainly and insecurity, do nothing
- but take the responsibility for doing nothing
Others cannot be continually blamed for how you see yourself and your life if you are not open to taking charge and channeling your talents and energy into positive and right-thinking ideas and goals. Don’t put others in a position where they have to feel guilty about your situation - just acept every person for who and what they are - preferably seeing the good points and appreciating those good points. And how about recognising YOUR own good points?
And if others don’t fit into your perspective of decent and worthwhile people, then look elsewhere for your friendship. This also applies to families, - quite often a family member can be a hindrance fo one’s own self-esteem and self-confidence. Treat them with the respect they deserve - no more, no less, but don’t waste time on them.
Time is far too short to conentrate on negative people and negative situations. Rise above the depressions and cloudy outlooks of life, and learn to look at yourself and see youself as a valuable person, and you’ll not only be a better person but certainly a happier one. You don’t have to be popular, but at least it can be said of you that you know yourself, and accept yourself, and maybe before long you may find yourself considered by friends and foes alike as being a person who is straight forward and still nice to know.
