In a world where people constantly blame other people for how they are feeling, for what they have/ don’t have, for what they are, etc. it can be quite challenging to start taking responsibility for one’s own thoughts, feeling, and emotions. It can be quite challenging to understand that you and only you can determine how you feel, and you and only you can decide whether you are happy or unhappy.
The moment you accept it, the moment you understand that it’s not other people that make you happy or unhappy, but rather, it’s how you choose to look at what they do/ not do to you, that will be the moment you will regain your power. I can tell you from my own experience that this is one of the most amazing things you can do for yourself, and in that moment, you go from being weak, from being a victim to being a very powerful human being who is total control over his/her own life, and that is exactly how life should be lived. And I love how Eleanor Roosevelt spoke about this:
“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt
And how true is that?
It’s all in your hands, it’s all in how you choose to look at things; how you choose to interpret them… it’s all in how you choose to perceive yourself, your circumstances, the people around you; it’s all in how you choose to perceive life in general.
You can either choose to be a victim and blame it all on outside forces, or you can choose to take control over your own thoughts, feelings, and emotions, and understand that nobody can make you unhappy unless you choose to be so. You and only you have control over all of these things. You and only you.
