It’s ok to be sad about something that has happened. Being sad can happen, as long as it’s not becoming permanent.
Most sad people hope to find something outside that will lift them up. It’s an illusion. Nothing outside can lift you up. You are the only one that can lift your mood up or not.
“Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have – life itself.”
– Walter Anderson
No ones are always happy. We all have to live our share of sad moments. Without the sad moments, how can we know what is happiness?
“The word ‘happiness’ would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.”
– Carl Jung
If it’s not normal to always be happy, it’s not normal to always be sad.
Step up and do what needs to be done. You know what you can do right now, why don’t you do it?
Yes, people will tell you to stop. They’ll tell you that it’s a waste of time. They’ll tell you that you can’t do it. They’ll tell you that they did try and it don’t work. They don’t want you to succeed! Because it will bring back the regrets of doing it themselves.
You have to learn to see when there’s a good fear and when that fear is just preventing you from taking action on your dream.
When your fear is linked to saving your life, it’s good. But when fear is linked to your ego, then it’s wrong. People will always bitch about what you do or don’t. So, do what is needed to reach your dream.
