There are things that happen with in our daily lives that are unfair, complicated and not deserving, but they do not define us. Obstacles are placed in front of us on a daily basis. Actually, it feels as through obstacles are thrown at us with out any warning. Sometimes it feels as though you are drowning in darkness with out any light in sight, but the most important thing to remember is to not get lost in the darkness because it does not define you, as do not the words of others. You know who you are and the words of others can not change that, neither can the obstacles you face in life. It is easy to lose your self in the negativity but there are many ways to get through these obstacles in order to create happiness and light.
1. Find a good support system: A good support system is vital to a happy life. The vibes you share with in human interaction can shape your day and even your life, so it is extremely important to be very picky about those you let in your life. When a relationship is toxic, such as friends, partners, or even family, you have the power to say that this relationship does not have any room in my life because it is too toxic. These types of relationships will diminish your self esteem and make you feel worthless, even though you are worth the world. God would not have put you on this earth, if there wasn’t something special about you. There is a purpose to your life, and most of us spend our entire lives searching for that purpose. This support system is a place where everyones’ happiness feeds off of each other to create a safe haven, usually amongst really close friends.
2. Be your own motivation: Do not rely on anyone to motivate you. Motivation needs to come from love. When it comes form anything else, such as fear, threats, or negativity, it becomes tainted. The thing you are trying to become motivated for becomes a negative element in you life when you are not the one that produced the motivation. You are the only one that knows who you really are, and that translates into your decisions. A very important tip to get through any obstacle is to trust your self and your ability to do what is right for you in spite of what others may say or think.
P.S. Just keep smiling.
