Stop feeling sorry for yourself!
Self-pity: Are you a loser or a fighter?
Too many people are hiding in self-pity. We’ve all been there, everybody hits rock bottom sooner or later. You are sitting in this big dark hole, facing a black wall. Sulking in self-pity is somewhat comforting, an escape from reality. It makes you feel unique and almost perfect. Poor soul, let down and cheated by everybody else. You can blame Tom, Dick and Harry for your misery - everybody, but yourself. The hole gets deeper and you feel like you are drowning in it. Can’t get out, no future! Carry on sulking and the hole will get even deeper, making you feel lonely and isolated. This ain’t no life.
You wake up and start looking around you. The dark wall has steps and with a little bit of effort you can climb out and start all over again. You look at yourself and all your options, and all of a sudden the dark hole is forgotten. Along with the self-pity which you left behind.
You have a future, you have a life, all you have to do is live it!
Inspiration from a person who most of us would pity
Next time when that feeling is creeping up on you and you start looking at that big black hole opening up again, watch this inspiring video. You will probably have tears of self-pity running down your cheeks. But don’t worry, they are tears of embarrassment, of realization, of love and of hope. Some people like Nick are not as lucky as you are. They don’t have arms and legs, that help them climb out of their dark hole. But they have wisdom and faith and they love and embrace life.
They have a future, they have life, it may not be as perfect as yours but they make the most of it.
Nick Vujicic an inspiration for all of us
PS: I've been inspired to share this video with you, as I see far too many sad and desperate hubs on hubpages.
