You know those people that bitch & whine & complain about everything? Those people that don’t take responsibility for anything in their life? The people that constantly justify why their life isn’t going how they want it with the excuse that life just isn’t fair? I used to be one of these people 🙈 prior to my first yoga teacher training you would catch me saying things like, “what did I do to deserve this? Why does God hate me? Why do all these shitty things keep happening? Poor me my life sucks for no reason and there is nothing I can do to make it any better” It’s true that we can’t control how things happen always, but we always have control over how we choose to respond and react when whatever happens happens. This isn’t to say that you aren’t allowed to get angry or sad or frustrated or whatever. This is to say that when you feel angry or sad or frustrated that you are choosing to feel that way. Sometimes in order to process emotions & experiences so we can put them behind us and let them go we have to go through the feels. So scream or cry if you need to, call that person who cut you off in traffic a Mother F**ker, but when your actions cause another action take ownership of what your putting out there. Saying sorry is ok too 😛 .
I used to make my life hard for myself. I hung out with shitty people, I did shitty things and took zero responsibility for my actions. However, the moment I dropped my toxic friends and realized that I was not a victim, god did not in fact hate me & that things don’t just happen to me, things happen for and because of me (meaning that I am responsible for my life and regardless of my awareness my actions do affect outcomes and situations) my life became 100% easier and more enjoyable. Shitty things stopped happening, or at least when they did I was less affected because I understood it was my choose to respond in a negative, positive or neutral way. Take ownership of your life, behaviors & actions and watch what happens 😉
