It’s not healthy to keep ANGER inside for too long. If you’re too upset to speak calmly, you can write a note and put it where the other person will see it.
Here are 3 sentences that may help. First: “My dear, I am suffering, I am angry, and I want you to know it.” The second is: “I am doing my best.” This means you are practicing mindful breathing and walking, and you are refraining from doing or saying anything out of anger. The third is: “Please help me.”
Memorize those 3 sentences on top. Or write them on a small piece of paper, the size of a credit card, and put it in your wallet. Then when you’re angry, you can take it out, and will know exactly what to do. (Not my words.)
Just because people are being bad to you, doesn’t mean you should sacrifice the same energy to them. Don’t go through that kind of effort. The best thing you can do is to completely ignore them and focus on what makes you better. It’s hard, but know that you deserve only good and positive vibes. You were not born to embrace and express negativity. Maybe the people around you might have brought that side out of you, but naturally you’re nothing like those people. You’re way better.
Stopping yourself from doing what’s wrong is not the same as choosing what’s right and doing it. Don’t stand on the verge of being good. Be as good as you can be. If you can give, give. If you can help, help. If you can make someone’s day by a simple act of kindness, make it. Set the bar of success for yourself as high as the best that you can be, not as low as avoiding the worst that you can be. Big difference. (Not my words.)
Every difficult situation I’ve experienced has ultimately changed me for the better. I’ve grown stronger as a human being and I have been able to advocate for others who are still struggling to be heard. I can’t tell you what a privilege and honor it is for me to use my own pain to help people find strength and hopefully prevent unneeded suffering for many others. These positive rays of light were only able to come through the darkness because I allowed them to, because I was open to them, and because I didn’t dwell on my past or my pain. I simply honored it.
Find something positive about a struggle you’re facing and share it with someone who’s struggling. They’ll know something better is coming to them too. There is always an opportunity to turn a negative situation into a positive one as long as you are open to the possibility. (Not my words.)
Each of us leads unique lives with experiences that nobody else will ever completely understand. Your story holds so many valuable lessons that can help inspire, teach, and motivate someone else. Should you choose to share it!?! In life, I have heard so many different stories. Just by listening, I learned so many different things. I’m so thankful I found the courage to share my story as well and talk about what I’ve been through. Not only has it helped me, but it has helped give perspective and strength to so many other people, my people to be precise. I encourage you to do the same.
Share your story with someone who is worth your time. You never know how one sentence of your life story could inspire someone to rewrite their own. No matter what you have been through in life, good or bad, don’t take it for granted. There are lessons in every moment of our lives.
The thing about pain is, it won’t last forever. And it kills you right now, but with time it gets better.
The thing about scars is, they all start to fade. Until nothing is left of the cuts that were made.
The thing about today is, there’s always tomorrow. And if you can’t find your smile, i have one you can borrow.
The thing about help is, beside you it stands. But it won’t know it’s needed, unless you reach out your hand.
The thing about love is, you can’t feel it’s touch. Until you let someone know that, this world is too much.
Tomorrow is not promised. Not a single second or minute is. So, live for today. Keep the promises you make. Take action on the things you desire and need. Remind those that matter to you, that they are loved and you are grateful for them. Never leave someone you care about on negative terms. Give more than you take. Make the calls you’ve been telling yourself you’ll do ‘tomorrow’. Let the small shit go. Never go to bed angry. We will all die one day. So learn to live each day with the promise to yourself that “it’ll be better than yesterday”.
