I just have to share some insights into what I'm currently reading but really already knew; it only reinforces that knowledge. We attract what we think. If your life isn't going the way you want it to, who really is to blame? One would like to blame everybody around us but that isn't where the blame needs to go.
Ever heard the saying "It's all in your head"? Well....it IS! We attract what we think! (I can’t take the credit for that line but it packs a lot of power.)
Do YOU have the power? Think about it for a bit. When you're depressed, what happens in your life? Things seem to get worse and we can't figure out why. Our friends seem to dwindle and not come around, work doesn't go right, our health deteriorates, our thoughts get worse. We certainly don't want to blame ourselves, yet, that's where the blame needs to go. Why? Check out those boxes in the back of your mind, way back there in the dark corners where you've pushed things you don't want to deal with. Dust the cobwebs off one box to start with. Now carefully open it and one at a time, deal with what you pull out of there. Is it really something you need to hold onto? That could be what is holding you back. Toss it over your shoulder and be done with it. If it was about a person who wronged you, forgive them, forget about it, and move on. Being angry with that person isn't hurting anyone but you. Toss it! NOW!
Move on...you WILL feel better. Empty one box a week to start. Take notice in a few days of how you feel. Things will seem lighter, your mood will change because you aren't carrying around so much anger. Think positive, happy thoughts and QUIT the negative SELF talk!! That has to stop before you can move forward. No one can love or care about you until you care about yourself. You're not a bad person so why the bad self talk? Only you can fix that so start today. Let me repeat that: No one can love or care about you until you care about yourself.
Improve yourself and watch things around you begin to change!
