First off, I am a pessimist, for now and likely forever. And, I’ve gotten here from educating myself on things and seeing how the world works. Especially things in the United States.
So, for me, getting organized in different places on my phone, online, and at home, has made a big difference!
Perhaps the most important thing to curtail my confusion though, has been this attitude, that, “it will get better if I just hang in there.”
Well, I’ve been hanging in there for quite some time (20+ years)! And, I am happy to say, that today, I challenge most everything!
If something doesn’t sit right with me, I question it! And, this has helped me while on the path of self-development…
So, self-development for a moment…
It has negative connotations, but again (for me), it just means I will try in spite of everything! In spite of every crummy, crappy, shitty, and difficult thing I go through (and there are many), I will try!
It is my hope that for those struggling, that you know A) I am barely holding on myself; but that B) I keep doing what I can to have a better life!
I see it like this… for years, I’ve been spinning my wheels, but I’m still alive! And, it takes me infinitely longer to do many things that some people can complete in an hour or two. And, I accept all of this!
However, I have a hope, that we can all get there. One day at a time… not necessarily to a place that doesn’t exist, but rather, to a place of greater understanding!
How have you reconciled change in your life? What have you done to make things better? What kinds of changes have you made that stand out for you?
