"Today I want you to ask yourself this one question. Why not you? Why not you to do something for work that you love? Why not you to have a healthy body? Why not you to have healthy love? Why not you to be, have, or do anything you have every dreamed? We are so quick to think others are deserving over ourselves. The truth is that we are all deserving, so why not you?" Jillian Michaels
So many people seem to walk around with a dark cloud over their heads, all 'doom, and gloom.' They seem to feel that nothing good ever happens to them and don't expect that anything ever will. Well, not with that attitude, that's for sure. You need to rein it in.
You get what you give out!
If you feel as though you don't deserve anything, you will find that that is exactly what you get .... nothing. If you don't think you deserve anything, no one else will either. It's a self-fulfilling prophecy... if you keep going around thinking and being less than, the rest of the populace will assume you are. You are the only one that can fix this malfunction.
"Change the way you look at things, and the things you look at change." Dr. Wayne Dyer
So, change your attitude, start looking for the good in people, try thinking of someone else besides yourself, do something for someone else, get a rescue pet and take good care of it, practice gratitude. The world does not revolve around you. And, you are totally entitled to sit around and mope about your pathetic little life. But really where will that get you? You might just as well join the rest of the world and put in some effort.
You are valuable too, you deserve everything the universe has to give you. "You is kind, you is smart, you is important" - THE HELP
That is really all you need to know.
