This is something I wrote in a text to a friend...and it is something I have to keep reminding myself of a lot lately...I can't change what's happening but I can do my best to deal and cope with it.
There are lots of life changes and some things are and will be...out of our control. And sometimes...all we can do is our best to deal and cope with it.
There are lots of cliches and little quotes...but do you know the one thing they all have in common? (and it's a painful truth) We can't control life...life is going to happen to us...both the good and the bad. All we can do is the best we can do...each and every day we are given the chance. That's what's in our control.
Being able to recognize and realize when things are out of our control isn't always easy...but focus on what you can change...you and your response, your behaviour and your words too...how do you respond to what life brings?...you do have some control and it's YOU!
Now being able to accept things? well! that's another matter entirely! There will be things in life we will struggle to accept. Things we would rather just not experience...things we want to hide from...but it's in those moments when I think we can grow the most. Sometimes though we just don't believe in ourselves.
And sometimes I think we react instead of responding. We react out of fear, we react out of anger, we react out of love...and sometimes our response hurts the situation. We try to force the outcome, to change the facts, to make things "right"...but we can't. We just have to accept things for what they are and keep moving forward the best we can.
What do you struggle to let go of? What do you struggle to accept and move on from? We all struggle sometimes and sometimes...we can make the journey harder for ourselves. We have to remind ourselves...
I can't change what's happening...but I can do my best to deal and cope with it.
You can't change what's happening...but you can do your best to deal and cope with it.
We can do our best.
take good care of you
