Reality Check

I’m one of the most motivated people I know, but I get angry so quick. It started because I figured if I was nice, happy, and treated everyone how I wanted to be treated that I would be treated fair. But, I realized that was completely wrong, that it didn’t matter how nice I was, how happy I was, or how I treated people. I would always be treated unfair. So, what did I do about it? I usually would’ve gotten angry and pissed off, and asked why was I being treated like this? But, I had to learn to 1) Don’t expect the world to treat you fair. And 2) don’t allow your emotions to control you. You see, I preached about staying calm in every situation and bettering yourself, but I was allowing the outside world to affect me. I was allowing certain things to be taken personal and I was allowing my own emotions to destroy me. You see, I’m not perfect nor do I want to be, but I do want to be the best that I can be. But, I couldn’t achieve that if I didn’t speak the truth. I couldn’t achieve that if I allowed my emotions to get to me. And I couldn’t achieve that if I expected the world to treat me fair. As I said before, the world is what you make of it so if you choose to make a hard world then you will go through some hard times. But hard times don’t last forever. But the overall point I’m trying to make is that sometimes you need to give yourself a reality check. Listen if you know something you are doing is wrong then why not fix it. Why not fix it that way no one else has to tell you to? This is your life you control it, so why not take ownership and learn from the wrongs you have committed, that way you don’t repeat them again? Because any lesson can be taught to anyone. But the lesson means nothing if you don’t take the time and actually learn from it.
