Don’t wait for someone to save you from your life. Rescue yourself.
Too often, people look to others for their happiness, wanting another person to be responsible for making them happy. The truth is, we are accountable for our happiness and our life.
You do not need a hero. Why? Because you have everything that you need to resolve your own problems. This doesn’t mean we don’t need people in our lives. It means that we don’t need to put our entire happiness and success on their shoulders. Our life is our responsibility, not anyone else’s.
Take ownership of your life and be your own superhero. If you need, envision yourself with an invisible shield that will reflect and redirect harsh words and negativity, directing them elsewhere.
Your shield will act as a mental awareness that you don’t need to own negativity, insults, put-downs, etc., from anyone. Stare, say nothing and walk away. That is how you win.
Here are a few things to think about:
⁃ An argument can’t happen with only one person. You have the power to walk away.
⁃ A sponge can’t absorb a dry substance. You have the choice to reject any self-limiting negative talk (even from yourself).
⁃ The caterpillar doesn’t know it is a beautiful butterfly waiting to emerge. You are the result of your own beliefs, and you are beautiful. Don’t limit yourself by hiding in your cocoon.
Do not live with a victim mentality, or in the world of ‘poor me.’ Identify what the problem is and start working on a resolution for it. If you are feeling down, put on some uplifting music or do something that makes you smile until your mood changes. You decide if you will be happy or not.
If you doubt yourself, stand straight, square your shoulders and know that you can do it. Give yourself a pep talk when needed, and love yourself throughout the entire process.
Life can and will be challenging at times, but that doesn’t mean you don’t deserve to be happy. Accept it, acknowledge it, and when times are more problematic, hold your head high and smile.
We all fall at times, but the beauty of it is that we can pick ourselves up. Next time you need help, remember this and be your own hero and then go ahead and rescue yourself.
