There may come a point in time when it feels like you are drowning in negative thoughts, all of the negativity in your life just gets to you. You may have had several bad days at work, you got into a fight with your spouse and/or your kids. You may have had an accident that damaged the car and caused you injuries that make life harder than before, including having an additional bill to pay, etc.
You may also see other people in your neighborhood or on television who look like they have everything, the perfect life at their fingertips. It might cause you to start becoming depressed over your own situation and angry at others because they seem to have everything and you don’t, even though you work just as hard as they do.
The truth of the matter is, EVERYONE goes through periods where nothing seems to go according to plan. Yes, this includes those other people in your neighborhood and on television who appear to have everything. The truth is that virtually NO ONE goes through life without challenges. Everyone does find the success that they eventually gain.
This is even true for Hollywood actors and actresses; virtually all of them start off in low-budget, poorly-rated movies that don’t have very exciting plots. They will often work for 12-18 hours per day for relatively small pay; that’s why they often have to get a second job while trying to make it in Hollywood. Drowning in negative thoughts, is normal but you can change this.
Even when they do hit the “big time,” they still will often work 12-18-hour days to complete a season series or a movie they’re working on. Plus, if that series is canceled or that box office movie bombs, they pay for it, both in terms of their salaries and their reputations.
So, they don’t have a perfect life or are without challenges either. Plus, you aren’t privy to what goes on inside of their homes; chances are, they aren’t as perfect as they may seem – after all, how many times do you hear of them going through divorces? Quite often in many cases, so, again, they don’t have perfect lives.
The same holds true for other people in your neighborhood. You don’t know what is going on behind closed doors. For all you know, they may be dealing with similar struggles when it comes to their spouses, children, paying bills, injuries, and more.
Of course, most people aren’t going to expose this to the outside world, just like you likely don’t either. For all you know, they could be putting on the same “brave face” when they go out into the world and bearing it, just as you are. They, too, may be frustrated underneath the surface, but do their best not to show it.
The main point is that you are NOT alone, and, thus, should not hold grudges against other people who seem to have “perfect lives.” It’s very likely they have problems and challenges to deal with, just as you do.
Know that it is natural to feel frustrated from time to time, but also know that keeping your spirits up and keep plugging away at doing your best is the best way to turn your fortunes around. Getting depressed at yourself or angry at others is just going to make you feel even worse than you do right now.
Everyone goes through ups and downs in life, drowning in negative thoughts, and when you’re going through the down periods, you think you’re the only one in the world who is, and it will never end. The truth is, though, things will turn around if you stay focused, keep giving it your all, and moving forward with life.
The possibilities are endless … here are the secrets to the Law of Attraction.
