I sincerely believe that it is far more beneficial and far less costly to help a child build confidence than it is to fix an adult who has little or none.

Take responsibility

on February 29, 2016

Sometimes things happen in life that are not our fault but many of us allow our past to control our lives.  When we are children, our parents often make our choices for us and we are compelled to follow their rules and stay within the boundaries they have set.  These rules and boundaries may not be the best and we may feel hurt, rejected or abandoned by their poor choices.

However, we don’t have to continue living in pain because of what someone has done to us in the past.  Just because someone has hurt us, doesn’t mean we have to go through life feeling bad. Instead of thinking that we have done something wrong or that we deserve to be treated badly, we need to realize that the people who have hurt us are dealing with their own set of problems that they carry through life.  What people do to us does NOT define who we are – it defines who they are!

We need to take responsibility for our own lives and start making better choices.  What happened to us in the past may not be our fault, but continuing to allow our past to hurt us in the present IS our fault.

If you face life with a negative perspective and feel like nothing will ever change, you are wrong.  You CAN have a positive perspective and enjoy your life if you really want to.  All it requires is commitment and patience.   Start taking responsibility for your own life today!
