May Sarton said, “We have to dare to be ourselves, however frightening or strange that self may prove to be.” We don’t do that. Instead, we are trying our best to make everybody around us happy. We want everybody to love us. We want to be the best in the room.
But while trying to make everybody happy, we are neglecting our own happiness. We are neglecting our own lives. stop it! Instead of trying to make everybody happy, which is not possible, why not take care of your own life first. Take care of your life so that you can take care of other people. It is not possible to give what you don’t have. Can you give what you don’t have? Can you make other people really happy? Can you make other people smile when you can’t smile? It is almost impossible.
Don’t try to do more than what you can really do. It is not good for your life. It is not good for your soul. Do what you are capable of doing. Because if you allow other people to take charge of your life, there is no way forward for you. Because the key to where you are going belongs to them.
It is not easy. Your life is your life. You must take care of it. Because if you don’t, no one will. Keep your life together. Don’t disrespect your life. Because your life is a sacred thing from God. According to Dan Rockwell, “You lose respect for yourself when you abdicate responsibility for yourself.”
Whether you like it or not, you are responsible for your life, for our actions. According to John Hagee, “If you don’t accept responsibility for your life, there is no hope. Why? Because change is not possible until you accept responsibility for yourself.” Don’t blame other people for your own actions. Don’t blame other people for your own thoughts.
You are responsible for the quality of your work, not your boss.. You are responsible for the quality of your thoughts, not your friends. You are responsible for your health, not your doctor. You are responsible for your development, not your government. You are responsible for what you eat, not your stomach. In life, we tend to get what we sow. So if you want to live a better life, you must be in charge of your life.
