Suck it up Cupcake and put on your big girl panties. You want to change your life? Great, but it’s up to you to make it happen.-My Split Apart, Lin
Today we’re going to discuss self-pity. You all know at least one person that wallows in it. They’re mad because they didn’t get the job, the spouse, the house, the schooling, the parents, the children, the body, the face or the life that they wanted. Of course the list of wants goes on and on and on. Blah, blah, blahdy fucking blah! I’m tired of watching that person treat another person like crap because their life didn’t turn out like a fairy tale. Excuse me? Who the hells life does?
Aren’t we for the most part the masters of our own destiny. Don’t we get the chance every morning when we wake up to make a change? To decide that this could be the best day of our life? I understand living life on auto-pilot. Sometimes it’s necessary. Especially during times of grief. Those are the times that you get up out of bed every morning and say, today may suck but someone at work, school, or wherever is depending on me so I best get my ass in gear and make it a point of being present. I don’t give a shit how shitty your life is. Er, really I do, but when you walk into a situation where you interact with people you put a smile on your face and you treat them with respect. If you give respect, it then will be returned to you.
If you’re not happy about something in your life, find a way to change it. God gave you a brain in your head and love in your heart. If you woke up breathing, well, then that’s a gift to be thankful for. If you have food in your pantry and clothes on your back those are more things to be thankful for. If you have at least ONE person to love you, then that’s the most beautiful thing to be thankful for!
However if when you wake up in the morning, you’re angry, then you need to sit back and think about all that you have in your life that is good….. All that could be worse. If you want to lose weight, stop eating the entire bag of Cheetos. Get off your ass and walk. Do something. If you want to go to school, find a way. If you want to change the lives of your children, become a more positive parent. If you hate your job, update your resume. Do NOT sit and wallow. It is not becoming of you. It does nothing but alienate everyone around you. Remember the world is a better place because you are in it. But you have to make the best decisions to transform your destiny.
