As human beings we are all guilty of this and we never thought it was a crime. Trying to be perfect at everything, any/everywhere and when it’s not we beat ourselves up over it. We always wish we could have done something better instead of considering that maybe it simply wasn’t our destiny to have won that thing over or perfected it.
We need to learn to be happy, or at least content with the decisions we make in our lifetime. You may begin to think: Well you’ve seen people who have done drugs and now their lives are a downward spiral of depression, drug abuse, neglect to themselves and destructive behavior. While this is hard to watch or believe some good can come out of this, good is very much possible at the end of this story for some people, especially those with family members who can send them to rehab facilities. Some drug abusers summon up completely courage and ownership of themselves to quit, this is where the good begins to show.
With many people who have gone through such traumatic events in their lives they become determined never to return down that path again, whether it be drug abuse, going to prison or other negative life experiences. Some use their recovery time to write books, which helps them to keep on the right track, or they may start a hobby that requires maximum attention, and some of them are to inspired by their turn around they become motivational speaks. Being a motivational speaker is a very remarkable step in recovery or after you’ve recovered. In my eyes this is a sign of no turning back because you must practicing what you preach, you must live your life the exact why you are motivating others to live their lives.
Now. Another scenario is if you are a professional business man and you’re at the top of your game and there is an upcoming promotion that you are fully confident you will receive. There is nothing wrong with being confident in yourself! The problems surfaces when to you’re shock you did not receive that desired promotion, do not then feel like a failure, I also have issues when I fall short of expectations but I realize, it plainly was NOT meant to be.
Recognizing things aren’t meant to be is one of the hardest facts a human can grasp but once we realize this life seems much easier and actually happier because then you will comprehend that it was not meant for you or it was not your time yet. Maybe someone needed it more than you? People won’t usually consider this especially, if they feel someone else is undeserving, but we really do not know what goes on in other people’s lives.
“Perfection is a disease of a nation,” quoted by Beyonce. Remember this line, along with realizing not everything is meant to be and you will lead a happier life. :)
