Why Are You Waiting For Somebody Else To Fix You?

I can’t fix you. Only you can fix yourself. Do not wait for somebody to come and fix you.

One way to fix yourself is to know what to stop doing. If what you are doing is not helping you, stop it.

“You are responsible for fixing yourself.”

Fixing yourself is not about changing your body shape; it is about changing your mindset. It is about how you see yourself, your life, your work. Rupi Kaur writes, “If you are not enough for yourself, you will never be enough for someone else.” You are good enough for yourself. You are good enough for your family. And you are good enough for the world. Because you are you.

You can’t fix yourself without first fixing your mind. Because everything happens in your mind.

If you take care of your mind, your body will take care of itself. Fixing is about your mind, not about your body. Your body has nothing to do with it.

“You are responsible for saving yourself.”

Fixing your life is about acceptance. It is about accepting who you are. It is not about beating yourself up. It is not about rejecting yourself. It is not about rejecting your life. It is about loving yourself. It is about loving your life.

Do not wait for people to fix you. Fix yourself. Because you are responsible for your life. According to Oprah Winfrey, “You are responsible for your life- and when you get that, everything changes. … So don’t wait for somebody else to fix you, to save you or complete you.” No one can do that. Only you have the power to fix yourself. Why not go ahead and do it?

Don’t Disappoint Yourself

It will never end. Life never ends. Even when we are no longer here, life continues.

Life is a journey. It continues. Do not expect it to end. If you do, you are going to disappoint yourself. So don’t disappoint yourself.

It is easier to disappoint yourself than to disappoint others. How? Because you are able to hide your true life, your true self, the true story, your failures, your mistakes.

Be authentic. It takes courage to be authentic. Remember, you live your true life when you are authentic..

Barbara De Angelis said, “We need to find the courage to say No to the things and people that are not serving us, if we want to rediscover ourselves and live our lives with authenticity.”

If you cannot live with authenticity, do not expect it from other people. Do not expect what you cannot give yourself from other people.

If you are not good enough for your life, you will never be good enough for other people’s lives.

General Colin Powell writes, “Always do your best. Even when no one else is looking, you always are. Don’t disappoint yourself.” He is right.

To live your true life, you must rise above yourself. You find your true self when you are committed to something bigger than yourself.

If you walk around with hate in your mind, you cannot live your true life. And to live your true life, you must replace hate with love. Because love is life.
