You know that your life is changing for the better. You're getting stronger physically, mentally, and emotionally. You know that things relating to your purpose in life are starting to make sense. You're beginning to accept who you are, even though you still have a long way to go.
You're learning to accept that the things that happened to you in your past, and all things that will happen in your future, are all necessary for the construction of who you are destined to become.
Change is a hard concept to accept for many reasons. We always ask about the fairness of difficult situations. We ask, “why me?” when we know exactly why.
What we put out into the world, we get back in mysterious and strange forms that we will never be able to predict or identify.
This is fine if we are fine with what we do and who we are.
We can accept criticism better if we're being a kind and generous person to others. We can accept rudeness and name-calling better if each of us is striving to become a better person. We can accept hate if we're fighting for the greater good. We can be who we are and deal with what comes with accepting it.
However, we need to realize that even if there are so many people who don’t approve of our actions or disagree with who we are becoming, if there is only one person who can appreciate and love us for who we genuinely are, then we have much to be grateful for.
We have much more to care about than the terrible words people may say to us or the terrible things that may happen in our lives.
It’s all a part of the journey of life.
Look at negativity the same way you do positivity, with appreciation and gratitude.
Celebrate change and growth every day. Celebrate the people that love you by loving them back. Celebrate the hard times as opportunities to better understand life. Celebrate that you live today by making the best of every situation that you’re in.
And celebrate the fact that you are able to see the next day to do it all over again.
