I am in a really bad mood right now and when I feel blue and not happy about my life, I grab a piece of paper and a pan and start writting things down, just to kind of calm myself and trying to find a good and the great in this situation. I figured that I could do that on vingle, since it might help others as well. If you don't like reading cards like this, you are free to close it, but if you feel this is something you need right now as well, I hope I can help.
I'll start with something I keep convincing myself with; be thankful for the bad things in life. They tend to open your eyes to see the good things you weren't paying attention to before. Also, making the same mistake twice is not impossible. The second time you make it, it's no longer a mistake, it's a choice. And you know that.
If you are thinking things you should not... Well you know... Over-thinking will destroy you. Don't deal with others problems and keep on making new ones. The less you care, the happier you'll be. One of the hardest parts of life is deciding whether to walk away or try harder. You know that the truth hurts only once but a lie hurts every time you remember it. So, care about yourself!
If you have the power to make someone happy, do it. The world needs more of that. Let your past make you better, not bitter.
Love isn't something you find. Love is something that finds you. Follow your heart is something you should always do, but do take your brain with you. Seriously, that is an important one about love. Sometimes its better not to say anything. Saying how you truly feel might make things worse. But that does not mean you should just give up because things are hard. And keep in mind that if you're not making mistakes, then you're not doing anything.
You may were really happy and optimistic once. You don't need to go back and be exactly the same as you were. But still... Train your mind to see the good in every situation. Worrying never did anyone any good. Never be afraid to be yourself! The less you give a damn, the happier you will be! If you don't step forward you will always remain in the same place.
So this is what I do, when I feel like doing something stupid. I really regret I haven't thought about this way a few years ago. It's funny, we tend to use the hard road rather than the easy one.
"Love isn't something you find. Love is something that finds you.” I would also add that love is WORK. putting in effort to care and be cared for. :) honestly, beautiful and great card. thank you for this!
I love this line "If you don't step forward you will always remain in the same place". Everything starts from ourselves!
I think we can all related to this at times, no? Thanks for sharing felt like a small bit of catharsis for me
@rodiziketan this. is. AMAZING. You have so many good points in here!! I want literally every single person on Vingle to read this, because it's such great advice! I do the same thing when I'm sad – pick up my journal and start writing. It helps to clarify things. I also use it as a way to step outside of my emotions, and examine them from an objective point of view. It helps to ask "Why am I feeling this way?" and "Is this really as big a problem as it seems?" If you have negative thinking patterns, it's so important to break out of them and be positive, as you said. I too am thankful for the bad things in life, as they tend to make you a better, stronger person. Thanks for tagging me, and definitely keep doing so when you write these amazing (yes, creative!) posts :D
@moya23 yeah, it is "drop the mic" line :)
