Emotional IndependencePosted: April 28, 2011
No one can make you happy. Happiness is a choice.
Our purpose is to stay sober and help others.
Anything else is lagniappe, a little sumpin” extra.
“Happiness is overrated.”
The point isn’t always to feel happy, the point is to feel and be alive in our skin.
Don’t get too taken in by the good times.
Don’t get too taken in by the bad times.
No Pressure, No diamonds.
“Rejoice when you suffer, for you are being perfected for a calling.”
Is this some shite or what..??
Perhaps our calling is to be an example of sobriety. Our calling, may be to be, an example of honesty or bravery or taking control of our lives and not allowing anyone to use us or control us or treat us like doormats.
Is pain growth?
People and situations who have given us the worst disappointments in life have been our greatest teachers. They are who teach us what we don’t want in our lives or in our relationships.
Fuck those assholes!
I say, “Stick with the winners. Don’t settle on second best or being second best and above all, don’t lose our voices, our independence, ourselves by being a doormat for others to walk on.”
What is the pay off of being dependent on others to make us happy?
What is the cost of trying to make every one around us happy?
It is not up to us to “make” others happy. Being happy is a personal choice.
Being able to control other’s happiness is illusion…
If we never want any thing, if we just settle and not feel anything, we may “think” we are happy or wait around until some else “makes” us happy, if we never risk change, we never get to grow and really feel and experience what life has to offer, good or bad. Now that’s a choice. We ain’t amoebas baby.
Hey, getting out of bed every day is risky
There’s a big world out there, a lot of choices, if we can overcome fear and get out there and live.
