There were a few instances that irked me today. And they just all happened to happen in one day, but all were kind of related. I won't go into detail but I will say this:
ONLY YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR HAPPINESS.
Seems like common sense, right? You'd be surprised. Sure, things that people do or say can contribute, but ultimately, it's your decision to be happy. You can't rely on someone else to make you happy. Life sucks sometimes and surely it hardly ever goes as planned, but attitude is everything. And standing up for what you deserve. If you're in a crappy situation, moping and whining about it isn't going to change anything. I believe that God has a plan for us, and that he helps that plan move along accordingly, but it's up to us to take action in our lives for the plan to truly work. Do we make bad decisions sometimes? Yes. Do we go against God's plan? Sometimes. But you have to face consequences for that, pick up the pieces, accept responsibility for your actions, don't hide stuff from people and move on. If you're being treated badly, don't stay in that situation. You only have one life and do you want to spend it being miserable? I sure wouldn't. Change is hard but in the end, it's worth it.
This has turned into a big ranty mess, but hopefully you get the point. :)
