So I’m sitting here watching “Everything Must Go” with Will Ferrell and it got me to thinking about the painful choices people make in life or so often don’t make. I started thinking of my own life and how much worse situations were when I placed my happiness on the decisions that other people made. Instead of relying on my own instincts and changing things for myself.
How many times have we all done that? Put our hope in someone else and waited. Placed our bets against all odds when everything we know says that we will lose..And then we convince ourselves that its the right thing to do, thats it isn’t crazy when we know damn well it is. We call it faith when it isn’t. Would you make the same bet if it was money, probably not! Your answer would quickly be “Hell No” if someone asks you to bet your life earnings on a gamble that you know you couldn’t win.
So why is it that people, particularly women, are willing to bet their life on situations and circumstances that they “HOPE” will get better? All the while watching someone else live their life as you wait to enjoy yours. I understand compromising, but giving your control to another person and letting them squander your happiness is a wasteful shame. What does hope get you when the actions of the person you put in control are not in your best interest I’ll tell you NOTHING. Its like FOOL’S GOLD! Its of no benefit to you!!
But the Lesson you learn from it is….
Sometimes..you must let go to live your own life.. Sometimes you must have the FAITH to do what is best for yourself.. sometimes you have to bet on the person that matters the most…YOURSELF! Sometimes it comes down to your happiness or theirs and you must decide to give yourself permission to enjoy your life.
Sometimes everything must go in order for you to discover everything you truly deserve..
