One thing I found very aggravating at times was the fact that some of my “issues” were self inflicted. I think a lot of us get in our own way at times, and slow ourselves down. Instead of putting aside, or even overcoming our “issues”, we let them affect us negatively.
People would rather have pity for themselves, think they are not good enough, think they deserve the bad things that happen to them, etc. I am guilty of those things, and I am sure a lot of others are as well. We have to promise ourselves that we will NOT let those things hold us down.
We do have power to conquer ourselves. We do have what it takes to get through all of the garbage life throws at us. Most of us don’t realize it, some of us bury it for whatever reason. Stop. Can’t live like that. Why purposely do something that will do you harm, and not allow you to grow?
“It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.” – Buddha
