We all have a backstory, the things that have happened to us, and the things that yes in many ways make us who we are. No matter what has happened to you, you cannot allow your circumstances to be your excuse for not being all that you can be, or not doing all that you could be doing.
No ones life is perfect. No ones life is or was like what many of us have seen on television or in the movies. There are many people who have experiences abuse and neglect, but those are just experiences it doesn’t have to be who you are or what you do. Many people feel a need or desire for the love and affection that they didn’t receive, and instead of working to have a life filled with the love and affection that they desire, they dwell on the past and make their past story their excuse for their self-destructive behavior. Which in turn really does nothing more but make them more unhappy.
Each person has the power to seek out different then whether have know, or the power to seek out the help they may need to be different from what they have experienced. Happiness for some might take a little more work than for others. The first step to finding happiness is to not look outside yourself for happiness, but in appreciating who you are, and realize that your happiness begins with you. Because, as long as you continue to look outside of yourself to find happiness you will never find the happiness you desire. The second thing is to remember that life is complicated and it takes work. You can’t get caught up judging yourself and comparing yourself to the people and things that you see. You have to find the things that bring you joy and make you comfortable,. Sometimes finding the happiness you seek means separating yourself from everything that you’ve known, and bravely seeking out the unknown to find what better suites you.
Are you allowing your past and circumstances to be your excuse??
Love and blessings in divine order,
