Stop asking yourself “why do bad things happen to me?” or “what did I do to deserve this?” and just take it in your stride. It’s hard, I know - I know and understand the difficulty of this more than you’ll ever know - but you need to do it. Bad things happen and shit hits the fan but you need to keep moving forward. If you don’t you’ll get stuck in limbo, it’s hard to reverse a stationary state.
I’ve had more than my fair share of unfortunate things happen to me but I don’t let it pull me down. Sure, at the time of the actual occurrences I was a wreck but since then I haven’t thought about them. Why should I? Why waste precious time remembering moments of my life that were traumatic? People tell me it’s unhealthy not to talk or think about it. I tell them that I’m happier when I don’t, so therefore I won’t. I don’t understand people’s need and want to “fix” people. Don’t. I don’t need “fixing”. I just don’t see the point in intentionally talking or thinking about things that make me want to curl into a ball or make my stomach twist and my skin crawl.
Don’t be cool. Be passionate. Be dedicated. Be tenacious. Be uncompromising. Be pissed. Be happy. Be sad.
