Life has a strange idea of balance, doesn't she? But you have a valid point indeed!
And you are a blessing to this discussion!
I couldn't agree more w/ your statement about people who feel we shortchange ourselves! You're exactly right. Did the woman who was hit/ killed by a car on her 30th birthday in LA last week, or the victims of 9/11 shortchange themselves? Best 2 u
I suppose people who say so mean that we shortchange ourselves when we behave negatively - the usual negative behaviors - but yes, the circumstances without our control do not constitute short changing ourselves. All the best to you.
Even though my situation for example, is out of my control, I feel short-changed...losing my youth in my mid-thrities to pain and arthritis. I agree with the people who've said it's usually the outlook we have.
Yes, the best is no blame at all!
We should indeed turn our shortcomings into strengths - that way, feeling shot changed is easier to deal with!
Always look on the bright side of life!
Picking battles is so important. Sometimes, the fight's just not worth the time! Thanks for the nugget of wisdom!
When we perceive ourselves as getting the short end of the stick, yes, we usually do indeed!
I totally disagree. Look at my comment...
"The short end of the stick (bat) used to be the way we decided who should go to bat first in a pickup game of baseball. It made that person the winner.
And give before receiving.
It seriously depends on what dragon we look at indeed! Often, the fearsome one seems so overpowering. And thanks for looking at the calmer, more positive dragon in your life!
I'm a fan of The Secret too! Yes, we get what we perceive as reality - the thing is to really have the right attitude. That's the hard part we have to work on!
A good move too, Mr Maranatha!
I guess life's all about balance!
Once bitten, twice shy!
Indeed we do! May not always be in the way we expect, but we do have that control. We have to decide to take it!
And be grateful that you have what you do!
Time is the key, certainly, and if we let it, it heals all wounds.
Do you accept your fate quietly?
We cannot count on ourselves- prayer gives the ultimate assistance.
