We Create Our Own Hell

This may sound dark, but it’s actually uplifting.  We choose to see the world through our own filters.  Is the glass half full or half empty?  Do you see where I am going with this?  Every misfortune we suffer, every setback, every loss can be viewed as either good or bad depending upon our outlook.  It has been my observation that those who choose to see the glass as half full live longer and, more importantly, happier lives than those who prefer the dark side.  It is so easy to get lost in our misery…too easy, actually.

A good friend of mine has been suicidal over the loss of a loved one and I grieve for her.  What she does not see is that her depression has guided her towards a time of self-growth and awareness, as well as engage in new activities which she would have ignored otherwise – she has become an entirely new person over the past few months.  Will she choose to recognize and capitalize upon this progress or ignore it and sink further into the abyss?  Let us hope for the latter but it is no one else’s choice but hers.

Personally, I have been suffering from the degradation of my significant other’s mental health.  It is a traumatizing and agonizing situation for us both.  It would be easy to scream “why me?” and depress ourselves by focusing on the negative.  However, she has targeted her illness and is spending all of her time fighting this disease while I have been completely engaged in both supporting her as well as my endeavor to make the world a better place.  Our choice to fight for our beliefs, to always try to do what is right, and to fill our hearts with love and hope is the difference between giving up and being a hero.

So my advice to you is be a hero.  It is easier than you think!  You don’t need to stop a terrorist or end global warming.  All you need to do is continue to fight for what you believe and choose to see the good in things.  Never give up…never surrender.  You will find that even during the darkest of times you will find beauty and heaven everywhere you look!
