When life sucks donkey balls don’t jump from the nearest bridge or do something stupid. If the world has thrown so much crap at you that you can’t see a way out, just say “I’ve had enough of this shit,” and do something about it.
You are not powerless!
You don’t have to live in awfulness. I’m sure the Powers That Be never intended for us to be unhappy. We live in a very complicated society and we’re brain-washed to the enth degree to start with. We are smart; we can say enough is enough.
First you have to realize you’re brainwashed. That is why it’s so difficult to see a way out. You have to forge new pathways for the new to imprint on the brain. Living the life like it used to be does not work in the new you /world.
There is a superwoman and superman living under the mundane suit of armor. Rip the suit off and claim the superpower within!
How do you do that? It’s hard to shift immediately from mediocre to superhuman, but everyone can take ONE step toward something more fulfilling in life, like an interest, or caring for something or someone other than oneself. Helping others brings you out of the bullshit.
Figure out where you want to be in, say, a year. What is gnawing to be heard inside? Listen to that and take one step today toward the new you. Within a year, you will have shifted completely, or maybe even faster than that.
Learn everything that needs to be learned to attain the goal. Sometimes we have to become nerd-like, sitting in a corner learning all kinds of computer BS to get somewhere.
But it feels good when mastered!
Set ONE goal.
Do something today toward it.
Do something tomorrow and the next day. Write down some doable steps and DO them. Before you know it, you have created a new neuro pathway for the new you to form. The old crutches you held on to so strongly will be gone and you wonder why you held on for so long. You might doubt you’ll ever succeed, but YOU WILL.
Freaking one goal. Just do it already. Stop the blaming and the excuses. If you want to live a new life, you have to take consistent action.
Even if you don’t feel like it.
…because life happens NOW!
Or stay the same and be miserable. It’s your choice.
I’m for sure taking steps every day.
