Yes life can be difficult, but don't put too much on yourself. Here's five tips that will help you ease a few frustrations.
STOP FEELING LIKE YOU'VE FAILED OR THAT YOU'RE A FAILURE. You were created in God's image and even he knows that you will never be perfect. There are many times we've fallen, but dust yourself off and get right back up.
STOP SAYING YOU CAN'T, YOU WON'T AND YOU WILL NEVER. I am a firm believer in speaking things into existence and seeking your wildest dreams. When you say you won't or you can't, expect exactly just that. Say "you will" or "yes I can" because you WILL succeed, you WILL finish school, you WILL get that job, house, car, or etc. and you ARE somebody.
SIT DOWN, BE HUMBLE. There have been so many times I've had to just sit down and shut up. Your blessings can sometimes depend on your humbleness. If you aren't a good listener, or someone who doesn't take real advice, it may be time for you to grab a seat and some pen and paper. Know your place, know your worth, but most importantly, be willing to learn and stop being selfish.
TREAT OTHERS LIKE YOU WOULD WANT TO BE TREATED. My good guy Jesus said "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." (Luke 6:31) I'm still learning and growing into this verse because sometimes it feels like the other person isn't being equal with me. I've understood that regardless, I'm going to respect them and move forward... although I may never respect them with my time or presence ever again.
BE POSITIVE, BE OPTIMISTIC. Even on a rainy day, you can still find some fun things to get into. Turn the negative into positive and keep it that way. When life has switched up, flipped you, thrown you around and even cursed you, just knowing that you are alive and well is one way of being positive. Even when you feel as if there is no positivity in your life, pray for the negativity to go away, even if that means your so called "friends" or even family. When you surround yourself with negative people, you become negative, your energy drains and those thoughts of "I can" turn into shaky "maybes". Keep working to reveal a + sign instead of a --- sign.
