When it all gets to be too much, what do you do? When you are attacked by the court system, do you attack it head on? Do sit down and be quiet? Do you run and hide from it? How can you change anything when you avoid it?
Have you ever been afraid of something? Have you had to face your worst fear? You cannot beat fear if you do not face it head on.
Do you allow yourself to feel defeated after bad days at work? When you have made a mistake? Do you admit your mistakes, or run from them, and hope no one will notice?
When we do not deal with those things that create negativity in our life, we can never escape them. Have you ever noticed that when you fear something, you almost always imagine it worse than what reality is?
If you are lonely, do you start looking for the one you have been waiting for? Do you check out? Disengage? You are not going to find true love in your living room, sitting alone.
Nothing will improve if you check out. You cannot hide from your demons because they always eventually find you. You will always regret the times you do not take action. You will always wonder what might have happened if you had just had the strength to act.
If you want a different life, you are the one who has to go after it. Time will not wait for you to do it. Do you want time and opportunity to pass you by?
Do not check out of anything, especially the bad times. We all make mistakes and have regrets, but those moments give us the greatest learning experiences and make us who we are. Whatever is happening to you, ask yourself, is this going to be an issue a month from now? A year from now? 10 years from now? 20 years from now? These questions will help you know if it is time to just make it through, or if you need to take action and change your life.
Stay in and fight. Life always goes on and finds a way.
