Life is difficult, isn't it, Charlie Brown?
Is life difficult?
If you think it is, IT IS.
Life can be whatever you want it to be, it will be as you expect it to be. You make it the way you want/expect it.
The cartoons that we grew up with, Charlie Brown, Winnie the Pooh etc. have characters of every personality type/disorder. Which one do you identify with? Charlie Brown, himself, was neurotic, and Eeyore, very similar, prone to anxiety and depression. They were not comfortable in their worlds, they didn't feel safe. Things were always going wrong, particularly for them. When rain fell, it fell on them alone.
With the terrorism we are witnessing on this planet, many are displaying symptoms of neurosis: anxiety, sadness, anger, vigilance, etc. People that have previously felt safe and complete, are currently suffering in varying degrees. Some are coming completely unglued; their world is no longer the same, they can't count on anything or anyone, they feel suspicious, unsure and distrustful.
There is a faction of the planet that promotes fear as a constant for controlling the masses. With random bombings feeding the fear, it causes the public to feel that life IS difficult, stressful and scary.
On the other side of the coin, there are people that feel that the world is a wonderful, safe and friendly place. In light of the latest news, it may be harder to keep your resolve, but the only other choice is fear. There are only two emotions, LOVE or FEAR. So there is only two motivations, either you are coming from a place of fear or a place of love. FEAR IS A LEARNED EMOTION, YOU WERE BORN OF LOVE, IT IS THE VERY FABRIC OF OUR EXISTENCE.
