Emotional Self-Changes

Updated on December 20, 2017

Living Vicariously

It is truly amazing how many people are living on the Internet. Millions are getting out and making a life for themselves but there are millions of others watching movie stars, playing games, and spending their days taking surveys.

The world is no longer a real place for some but has become this collection of computer keys and code. No going out accept for necessities and no interaction accept online. This seems to be a trend that will continue. Unless people realize it is happening, living vicariously.


Give You A Smile

Did you bother to do something special for yourself today? This is not a selfish act. Taking care of you, helps, you, take care of others in your life. Recognizing the things you need makes you aware of the needs of other. Offer yourself a smile while going through your day, and you will have one for others. Forgive yourself for a failure, and work harder to get it right the next time, and you will find you can forgive others.

It is not difficult to move through the world feeling you can do more. This is probably true for many. However, taking one minute at a time and giving yourself a break might help others, since you will probably be in a better mood. Clearly, there is no taking care of someone else if you neglect yourself.

Staying emotionally balanced seems like the easiest thing to do. But, the stress of working, and dealing with the influx of information from around the world is pressing the button of strain, and depression for millions. The key to a healthy emotional state is to be happy with who you are. Challenges will always arise. However, know, you are always up for a new adventure. Take it in stride and go for it.


Taking Care of Your Emotional Self

Recovering from anything you consider devastating is not easy. However, difficult it may be, force yourself to take the positive out of it and work with it. The positive is the only way to survive any bad situation.

You might ask; where do you start? Well, pick a spot and start from right there, whether it is finance, love, or something far worse. You are entitled to sulk, cry, be angry, but after you have celebrated with your pity party; and surely, you will; it is time to get up and move on. You may move like a rusty wheel. Still, move with wings broken. You will heal faster.

If you are your idea of overweight, note; your idea of overweight, not someone else’s, there are beautiful big women in the world and in some cultures being skinny is the last thing you want to be, because, you will be considered extremely unattractive.

So, having said that, start with a two-minute exercise every day, yes, two minutes, this much you can do anywhere. Given time, you will discover your body is toning and you will want to do a few more minutes. Add from there and never say, “What’s the use.” The use is YOU.

No matter what the problem do the most positive thing you can think of. If you are broke. Put $1 a week aside, forget it, and let it accumulate. What will this little money do, not a lot? Nevertheless, you will begin to realize that you can save or accomplish something you have set out to do.

This will lead to other positive things. Any positive action you take in your life will help. Obstacles will come but give them a positive twist, it’s like finding money you forgot you had, and surprising yourself is so delightful. Do things that make you laugh, a very healing activity, laughter.

Talk is cheap. Yet, if you look around you are not the only person in the world going through a bad time. It seems rich or poor, everyone get a turn at difficult situations, and life can get hard. Still, people move on with their lives in a positive way.
