Good morning everyone. Happy Tuesday to you. When things go our way and the sun is shining boy oh boy do we feel on top of the world. Then there are times when we are just having a really crummy day, nothing goes right and bad to worse is merely moments away. One unpleasantry can easily be brushed aside but when all seems to go in the opposite direction we kinda lose it, however, the distance and length we take it is entirely up to us.
Today's quote is, "The vortex of self-pity is deep, wide and difficult to free yourself from - use your strength to rise above the current." A rip tide may kill you but if you know how to swim at an angle you will safely make it to shore. Think of self-pity as a rip tide pulling you in and trying to drown you. Its so easy to get sucked in and not fight because it tires you out and all you want to do is give up.
Self-pity does the exact same thing. It tires us out, takes away our will and drowns us. As human beings there will absolutely be times when we will feel sorry for ourselves due to loss and emotional pain. There is no one who enjoys or wants to feel that but how long do we want to be wrapped in a blanket of misery and sadness.
If you experience profound loss you have every right to feel sorry for yourself but you also have an obligation to give yourself love, compassion and more love so that you have the strength to rise again to find joy, happiness and peace.
Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy
