Is anybody really satisfied with their life? Where they’re heading and what the future holds?
Do you feel as though the asteroids of the planets are hurled straight at you and your plans? As though there’s no answer to a situation you or someone else is in?
Welcome to the only answer which can truly save you from self destruction, the answer of positivity.
Now some people will groan at this, thinking of those crazy psychologists like the one in the movie 10 Things I Hate About You who I’m sure has turned more than a few people off the thought of ever going to a psychologist again. No, positive thinking isn’t only achieved by seeing a professional, it can come from within yourself. Everybody has the potential of seeing their half empty glasses as half full.
In any situation you may be in at the moment which is creating stress, there’s an answer to the problem. Sometimes when we’re angry there seems no way out but believe me there is.
Though in some cases this might not always be true, but usually as the saying goes to any opportunity that closes in life: “as one door closes, another door opens”
We all have insecurities about our appearance, what people think of us. This is may seem clichéd but I’ve come to realise that everybody has beauty inside them. If you’re showing people your true personality then there will always be somebody who will take an interest in you as long as you’re kind and considerate, take an interest in them as well.
As for the outward beauty, what is it really? Are all supermodels worshipped? No, beauty is in the eye of the beholder as they say. In the end it’s whats inside your heart that’s counted, if people want to make fun of others because of their appearance then it’s their problem.
Even supermodels at the end of the day are just like the rest of us, without the layers of makeup they too are human and have their own insecurities.
For the positivity, everytime you feel completely alone and closed to the world, find something that makes you feel alive. A special person, a book, a movie, anything. It’s never too late to make your dreams come true, miracles do happen especially if you believe in them. They could be happening without you even realising it.
Thankyou for listening and as my cousin said to me once, “Let’s turn those lemons into lemonade”
