“The world doesn’t owe you anything;
You make the world around you by the choices you make.”
Everyone makes mistakes; taking responsibility for them creates character, and the person you become.
Accepting responsibility is not easy, but essential to move on in life and not let the past haunt you into the future.
Living life in the moment is the only way to find true happiness and emotional well-being. Happiness will not come for material possessions, money, or other people until you are first happy with yourself.
Is it possible for you stay in a quiet room with just you and like who you are? Is it possible for you to find peace, and satisfaction in what you’ve accomplished during the day? If you cannot be happy with the day, or like the person, you are, how will happiness come from other people, or around your possessions? If inner happiness is not present, and happiness, nothing will make you happy; you will become a “What if”, or an “Only if” person that nothing can satisfy.
You must find the road to happiness within before you can find it outside yourself. There are myriad paths on can travel in learning self; each has its pros and cons. The main point is to look inward and adjust your thinking as needed to find inner peace, and happiness; the method you choose isn’t as important as delving inward regularly.
One may have health issues as one ages, it is not the end of your peace, just something to deal with. Many people have health issues they deal with, so can everyone else.
“Respect yourself if you would have others respect you.” ~ Baltasar Gracian
Respect is not a right, but a privilege earned by the choices you make from a position of self-respect. If you do not respect yourself, why should others respect you?
Self-respect guides the choices you make showing your integrity by doing what is right, not choosing to go along with others to make them happy. If they can’t respect that, maybe they don’t need to be around you.
