It is with a heavy heart and sense of disappointment that I am writing this article. Unfortunately, it is a part of life that we must all deal with at some point. Certainly we have all had experiences with people, situations, or circumstances that seemed to be going either nowhere or downhill fast in our lives. For whatever reason we have simply held on knowing that something needed to be done, yet making no move to change. This could be love relationships, friendships, career, or any other number of things. We become stagnant, complacent, resentful; even angry or vindictive at times. Often, there have been many signs relating to the situation at hand and the need for change. Still we hold on; hoping for the best yet intuitively feeling that something just isn't quite right.
It is not wrong that we change as people. When you feel that these situations are hindering your growth as a person, or even oppressing you in some way it is time to let them go. Things change, people change; sometimes for the best and sometimes not so much.
When we become trapped in negative thinking, we cannot help but project such thoughts and beliefs onto others. When we fear we have nothing to offer the world, we become lost souls; engulfed in a seemingly never ending cycle of misery. Sometimes falling so far into the abyss as to completely turn away from the light of LOVE and LIFE. We turn on ourselves, which results in us turning on others who truly love and care about our well-being. People who are trapped in this state of negativity often blame others, engage in constant fault-finding, and harmfully direct their dissatisfaction with their own lives onto others.
We are responsible for our own happiness. We are responsible for creating the Destiny of Ourselves. Our thoughts are made Manifest as Reality. I choose to adapt to change, to have faith in myself, and to spread positive love and light to all I come in contact with. I choose to manifest an abundance of Love, Spiritual Wealth, Wisdom, Good Health, and the Will to create that which I most desire.
We all have this ability within. We cannot judge, envy, or discourage each others method of attaining whatever level of enlightenment we choose. You too have the power to live an abundant life, no matter the problems, issues, or circumstances in which you live. Expand your view. Look at your life in contrast to the lives of others who are truly suffering in the world. Humble yourself, be grateful for all that you have, all that you have achieved, and all of the blessings that have been bestowed upon you. You are alive, in and of itself a miracle. There is no one like you; you are an Original.
Take responsibility for your own actions. Know that every negative thought creates another. When you find yourself wondering how you got where you are, examine yourself, not your surroundings. Do not place the blame on others. You still have the power to create a more positive existence, it is always there. All you have to do is believe.
I am not responsible for your happiness, nor you for mine. If I am unhappy, how can I even dream of creating happiness for someone else? If you have someone in your life who is always pointing fingers, judging, avoiding personal accountability, and is just overall miserable it is time to consider leaving that person alone. There comes a certain point when you have done all you can, and the only choice you have is to walk away. Perhaps this person will find your decision unacceptable, and will create ways to cause havoc and upheaval in your life because at that point, it's all they know. You owe it to yourself to keep on walking. Don't look back. These people need to take a good hard look at themselves and realize just what they have lost; A true friend, a true love, a trusted colleague...please realize that it's not your fault. There is no need for guilt, you have grown as a person and that is cause to celebrate. Some people choose to remain in a self-created hell and would love nothing more than to hold you there with them. Remember, you don't have to stay, WALK AWAY.
I know what I deserve. Do you? Think about it. I'm happy and always will be. I'm that way because I choose to be!
