“Sometimes we make the process more complicated than we need to. We will never make a journey of a thousand miles by fretting about how long it will take or how hard it will be. We make the journey by taking each day step by step and then repeating it again and again until we reach our destination.” – David B Wirthlin
In the picture above the river represents your life and the dam represents control. Who/what controls your life.
Old cowboy saying, “A woman finds her a man she wants and says I can change him. A cowboy finds a woman he wants and says I hope she never changes.”
So many things can control your life and you may not even know. Drugs, alcohol, gambling, and sex can all become a control issue. Most of the time they are pretty obvious to your friends and family and garner a lot of attention sometimes resulting in one getting help.
There is one form of control that literally breaks my heart. Low self esteem. It can make you a prisoner in your own world. Some people don’t even realize they have it. If you were bullied in school, had abusive parents, always ridiculed and never complimented or parents that never interacted or did things with you, then you probably battle with low self esteem. Good news is that if you are, you don’t have to. With the help of some family members, friends and YOU, YOU can heal yourself.
“Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
If you are one that suffers from low self esteem, to beat it you have to restore your self confidence. You have to quit listening to others and believe in yourself. You are somebody. You are beautiful. You are a good person.
It’s not gong to be an easy row to hoe. You are going to have to be strong and unwavering. Create yourself a negative free environment and begin a healing process. Surround yourself with positive friends and family and seek out a good counselor. All these people will be good for you. Again I stress you have to believe in yourself and take control of your life.
For those of you that have an addiction, you will have to use a little different approach but you can get control of your life back. Surround yourself with positive people and again, find yourself a good counselor. Set realistic goals and don’t lose sight of them and don’t ever give up.
