This is the truth the whole truth and nothing, but the truth! I wish with my entire soul that people would understand how important it is to work on self. Most people spend their lives fixated on other individuals; especially on their significant others or they’re chasing after things the wrong way. They worry about pleasing who they are with to a point of forgetting about self. Most times getting nothing in return other than headaches and heartaches.
Too many individuals give everything they have trying to make the lives of their significant others better yet they suffer, because of their choices and decisions. They always end up dealing with the consequences of their choices and decisions. Many people get into situations they don’t have to be in. It’s because people move along in life without ever working on self. They move through life based on how they think and how they feel, when their thoughts and feelings behind those thoughts are distorted.
Most people go through life neglecting self. They don’t want to face their own issues and oftentimes add to their issues by compiling the problems of other individuals with their own. It leads to more chaos and drama in the lives of many. Most people settle for mediocre and that’s it! Look at things happening in the world. It is because of the mindsets of people.
Many people are afraid of change. They have the ability to see how other people need to change, but can’t see the need in self. People find it very difficult to go through situations in life. They don’t understand what dictates how they will handle any situation in life (love relationships, parenting, careers, friendships, etc) is the mindset they have going into it. When states of minds are negative it affects everything else. People try to love when they don’t love self first. It causes more problems.
There are many people who have unresolved issues. Most are childhood issues they carry into their adulthoods inflicting further pain on self and others. They do this because of failing to deal with those unresolved issues. Those issues causes them to lead dysfunctional lives. Things will remain this way until people choose to deal with self. Facing your own issues is the only way to get past them. No one can move forward in a positive way when they’re stuck in negative mindsets. There’s no room or time for complaining and blaming. Change starts with you and no one else. Get to know yourself, forgive yourself, and love yourself. It alone changes the path you’re currently on.
