I cannot get over of what has happened the other day when I went out shopping. I’m still having nightmares about it. It added up to my already shaky belief in humanity and my declining faith in God. I’ve read somewhere that Other people don’t define you – No matter what others say about you, that does not define who you are. It takes a lot of courage and strength to trust yourself and ignore those words and opinions. The only person you have to answer to is yourself and when you lie in bed at night, if you feel comfortable with yourself, your beliefs and your actions, then that is all that counts.
It is easier said than done. As they mentioned in the same article The small things add up – No matter how tough we are, we cannot take on the world. It is not the big things that always break us down, but all the little small things that can add up over time and cause us to simply collapse. And when bad things are happening for so long you come to expect them and every time something sad happens you don’t cry anymore, you just sit there and feel numb.
Watch your mind they say.
Watch your mind – Your mind can get out of control pretty quickly when things go wrong and so you have to stop it and stop it quick. If you don’t it can play out the full blown drama over and over and add in the self doubt, the worry, the fear and make you feel pretty low. Watch it, catch it and stop it. Stop the negative self talk dead in it’s tracks.
Another easier said than done.
We all have a breaking point and depending what is happening on our life, that breaking point can be pretty high or pretty low threshold. One thing is for sure, is that the small things add up and can crush even the toughest.
They right about that at least. One thing I noticed about those peep talk articles is like the passages in the bible, they contradict each other. Cancelling each other out and leave you feeling more confuse than ever. Okay, you can blow the chaff from the wheat and use it to your advantage. Another easier said than done. Inspirational talks are full of easier said than done quotable quotes that hardly applicable in real life I find.
One thing I know for sure.
Last year I lost my faith in God. Today, I lost my faith in humanity.
