I, a lot like many of other people in the world, struggle with self worth, self esteem, and positive thinking in general. The scripture and God does help me in this issue I face, but there are also other ways to going about raising the “positive energies” in one’s life. One of these is the 7 lovely logics.
This something I know I have had issues with! Letting go of hurt feelings especially is one of the hardest things for me to do. I can forgive the person, but it is hard for me to forget. Just like in Lion King 2,
“Let him run
Let him live
But do not forget what we cannot forgive
And he is not one of us
He has never been one of us
He is not part of us
Not our kind
Someone once lied to us
Now we’re not so blind
For we knew he would do what he’s done
And we know that he’ll never be one of us
He is not one of us…”
Forgiveness doesn’t always come to me in the easiest way, especially is a similar thing has happened to me in the past.This does end up having a huge impact on the others involved in my life for one reason or another.
This is so true! Normally if a person steps back in a situation and calms down, then the terrible event that they were facing earlier suddenly isn’t as bad. No matter if it just a short amount of time or a couple years, TIME DOES HELP!!!!
As Americans we long for more or better things and envy those that already have what we seek. This is an unhealthy part of our society and causes more issues than it helps. I will admit that I too long for better and more things, but I also understand that I can’t have everything and somethings are better off that way. As the logic says, we don’t know the journey that the other person had to take to get to that point, we only know the end product. Maybe next time try to figure out what the person has gone through/ is going through to have what you long for and see if it is really worth it.
There is no reason to look for happiness in others or in objects! The happiness found there is fleeting. I do slightly disagree with this one because I believe that happiness is found in God, but that is my beliefs.
This kind of goes hand in hand with the last two. People will form their own opinions of you no matter what you do so don’t sweat it. Just do your best and be kind/caring to others and that is all you can do.
Okay Okay Okay, This is totally me! I over thing and analyze stuff all the time (hence this blog to get crap put of my head). I do not claim to know everything, but I feel as if I am knowledgeable and wise in some situations, and this is not wise because this causes me to become over confident, boastful at times even. One should be humble but aware or what is happening around them so that they can not so easily be taken advantage of.
I too have issues with this, I stress over every little thing. I am however getting better about this with the help of my husband. I have been going through a really sad time and stressful time here recently and smiling has not been a habit of my face because of all the mess. But anyways, I am getting better about it and that is something to smile about! 🙂
I plan on trying to adapt my way of thinking to where these are more of a main focus much like scripture is suppose to be in one’s life except scripture having more weight and meaning to it. I know with practice, changing my outlook on life will make things a whole lot better!
