So I discovered years ago that misery is a complete waste of time and energy. It takes effort to be miserable. This is something that people have to discover for themselves but you can help them get there.How do you help people find ways to be happy? Here are a few things to try:
- Lead by example. Practice a positive outlook on things.
- Offer a positive answer when they ask your opinion about their situation. You should really wait for them to ask your opinion.
- Support them when they have to make those tough life-altering decisions. Don’t try to make the decisions for them.
- Life is about the forest and the trees. Describe the aerial view when all they’re seeing is bark.
It’s important to be ethical. I’ve truly learned to understand that old cliche “Stand for something or you will fall for anything.” Over the last year I’ve had deal with some very unscruplous people. Without a strong sense of moral outrage, I could have been taken advantage of or worse. As the after school specials always said: “Choosing to do the right thing isn’t always popular but it’s always right”.
Liking me…failings and all. Long ago, I learned that I can only be me. I learned that weaknesses allow us the opportunity to learn and grow. Having a weakness or failing at something doesn’t mean your life is over. It means that you are alive.
Don’t be to hard on other people because of their weaknessess. They’re learning and growing as you are…
What matters most is how you see yourself.
