“Once you realize that everything you’ve ever been through – every scuffed knee, lost deal, and broken heart – will eventually play wildly in your favor, it’s kind of hard to complain.
Not that you would anyway.
Tallyho, ho, ho –
Now let’s say you do complain, who listens to you anyways, right? We all have our own problems, and the only thing you get out of complaining is having less and less people around you listening to your crap. You want complain? Go, just make sure you complain to a wall, because this is what going to be left once you have brought in so much negativity into your life and to your friends and family. Avoid that at all cost. You have issues? Start by working on finding solution to these issues. Get away from toxic relationships if you are in one or two. Work on making yourself a better person first before you expect others to be better towards you. Change your inner world before tackling the outside one. It will make a huge difference in your life. That is a promise.
So how do you approach negativity or current events in your life that are not so appealing? Well, try looking at these uncontrollable events as them happening whether you like it or not. Instead of trying to battle them, embrace them, learn to accept them. Afterwards, work on extracting the good from the bad. You say there is nothing good coming out of it? I beg to differ. There is ALWAYS a good out of every bad. The answer is: “LESSON”. You are constantly learning through this wonderful journey we call life. From an inside perspective, i agree that it might not look very convenient for you, but no matter what happens, you have learned a valuable lesson and as long as you are not repeating these same mistakes again that created this terrible ordeal, you will be able to tap yourself in the back for surviving it and live to tell the tale. This is definitely priceless.
