1. I've learned to let go.
Of the past, because I can't change it.
Of a grudge that I was carrying around that was weighing me down.
Of regretting decisions I've made.
Of judging myself so harshly.
Of worrying about what other people think of me.
Of always doubting myself.
This list could go on and on, but I think I've finally grown up and can accept myself just the way I am.
2. I've stopped comparing myself to other people.
I finally found out that if I wanted to suffer, the best way to do that was to compare myself to other people. I convinced myself "they" had more than I did, were more than I was, looked prettier than I did, were thinner than I was and that their lives were made up of only happiness and joy.
And the best place to compare yourself is Facebook, from what you eat, your relationships,what your house size, what you earn, and finally what snickers brand ?
3. I choose to be happy instead of angry and bitter.
How is that possible you ask? Life isn't like that. It has ups and downs and it's very hard to be happy when you're in "the down's."
I agree, but instead of being angry at someone, I remembered that when I point my finger at them for their mistakes, there are three pointing back at me.
I always felt stressed. Everyone told me to get more exercise. I did and it worked. I still feel stressed at times, but the feeling is appropriate for the situation.
I keep myself on track because I remember these five words:
I let go of the past.
And finally call to action to you viewers .......
