What's life have to do with it anyway???

Updated on October 13, 2012

What's life have to do with it anyway?

Life is way too short to spend arguing. I have recently had to deal with ignorance, intolerance and insensitivity among some who just like to push my buttons. I realize that I am the one who allowed them to push my buttons. I love this quote from Eleanor Roosevelt : "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." That is such a true statement. It allows one the choice to act or react in a certain way to any given situation. So we have the choice to sit and have a little pity party or realize that we are the ones with the upper-hand. We are the ones that can chose to ignore or feel sorry for those who are ignorant, intolerant and insensitive and just say "God forgive them for they know not what they do". I also love this quote about the strength of a woman by Eleanor Roosevelt : "Woman are like tea bags ,we don't know our own strength until we are in hot water." Another great one from Eleanor Roosevelt : " In the long run we shape our lives and we shape ourselves,this process never ends until we die, and the choices we make are ultimately our own resposibility."

So I have accepted full responsibility for my reactions to seemingly evil ,ill willed,mean spirited persons and just realize that they are ignorant or incapable of dealing with a human being and they are sad, sad individuals indeed. So basically anything they say or do against me I'll take as null and void because of whom it is coming from. So my choice from this point forward is to never respond to or deal with them ever again as it does me no good.

So what does life have to do with it anyway? Good question. Life is what we make of it good or bad. We are the ones with the choices to choose full and happy and joyfilled existances or not. We are the ones that will no longer entertain disrespect,ignorance or intolerance towards us or anyone else in our lives. We are the ones who stand up for what we believe. We can either stand for something or fall for anything the choice is ultimately ours. In this life it is what we make of it, our very own unique experience. It's like a fingerprint what will your unique mark be in this life? I hope this helps you in your life.

Enjoy your life and all it's wonderfilled experiences!!!

Many Many Blessings

      Excellent advice, and advice I have been trying to take to heart in my own life. Life is too short. I found with the most recent political happenings that I've seen a lot more unpleasantness.

      Eleanor Roosevelt was a very smart woman and ahead of her time! Voted up and more! :)
