Build A Life That You Love


By, Crystal S. Kauffman

Changing your life can be extremely difficult with the many different temptations around you. Most of the time, you are far away from the temptation, but sometimes it can be right in your face. This temptation can actually be in the form of a person, who just happened to dropped by to visit you after months or years of not communicating.

Right then, you must decide how you will handle this blast from your past. Will you choose the easy way out, which is to give into temptation? However, you could also visit for a few moments and then politely excuse yourself from the nerve racking situation. Only, you can choose what you will do when you face certain daily temptations.

Be sure to keep your support system on speed dial, because giving in to temptation is not worth the amount of guilt that you will face after your relapse. Stay completely away from circumstances and situations that will challenge your strength, while adding new things that completely inspire you. Start by creating a life that makes it easier for you to remain sober, because you are doing things that you enjoy despite the degree of temptation.

Are You At Rock Bottom?


Well, you have finally managed to hit what many people call,“hitting rock bottom”. This stage or point in life is when you lose everything and everyone you know due to bad choices. Most of the time the series of bad choices is associated with addiction to drugs, alcohol, and mental disorders, and chronic diseases has brought to your knees.

Your world has completely stopped turning because you have just lost your home, your spouse, your job, your children, or even your beloved pets. When this happens, you may feel or think that no one will ever forgive you or speak to you again.

You are absolutely wrong! This is a crucial point in your life that can go bad or good from here. Now, what should you do with your life, since losing everything that meant anything to you? You are where you are because of your recent or long-term bad choices that you have made so far. You can blame everyone around you for the reason that you are angry or depressed. Each of the bad choices was made by you and whoever your blaming it on.

First, are you willing to admit to yourself that you actually do have a problem and that you need to seek out help? Unfortunately, you cannot take away the mistakes you made, but you can begin taking steps toward creating a future that you alone can be proud of. Yeah, it is going to be scary or hard and you may even fail a few times at first, yet keep trying and refuse to give up! No matter how crappy you feel, especially on the days that just won’t end and you feel like you have been battered or bruised.

Just give it all up and let it go, no it’s not easy but that is the only thing you can do. Especially, on days that make you question allthe progress that you have made so far. Be honest with yourself and admit defeat, next admit your own blame and let God or your higher power help you achieve your next goal and so forth. Soon you will gain traction and you will see things begin to change, but this will not happen overnight though.

Believe in yourself and know that you are going try and fail, but you are making good choices which will help you find blessings along the way. You should seek counseling program or other addiction programs like rehab center near you. These rehab centers may also be obtained through your local community centers or church outreach programs. Look around your communityor call your insurance, so you can receive the professional help you will need.

When you’re ready to pick up the scattered pieces of your life, begin by admitting that you need help to someone you trust. Then, you can begin getting the treatment that you need to recover and take back your life. Be willing to make amends, with anyone you hurt whenever you lose control of your life in such a way that you begin spiraling towards your rock bottom. Your worth fighting for, so call someone you trust now and get the help you need.

Remember to focus your energy on learning to love yourself despite your painful past, while taking each future step slowly. Each day is a gift and some days will feel exciting orrefreshing, but some days will feel like you have stepped into a living a nightmare. Don’t let anyone tell you that you cannot change your hopeless situation into a hopeful beginning.

However, first you must be brutally honest with yourself and someone that you trust.

*Suicide is not an option under any circumstances, because you mustremain alive to achieve recovery and healing.*

The story will lead you and you may touch someone with your words. The new writer will find out this is a journey of blood, sweat, and tears. However, when someone reads your book, you will still be humbled. Take a chance and show others all about your story or write an awesome fictional tale.

Get Over It and Move Forward


Image

Sometimes you will find yourself in a situation that you don’t want to be in, however, you must face the situation and continue moving forward. The situation may concern having a horrible childhood, not getting a promotion at work, or a dispute with the new neighbor. Nevertheless, you must not dwell on things and are beyond your control, instead focus on things you can change. You cannot change a childhood, so you must forgive your parents and focus on changing your future. This way, future generations will not continue the abuse or neglect that you felt as a child.

The promotion at work was given to a younger person, who may not have had as many years with the company as you have. However, this is beyond your control and the person who got the promotion may have a college degree that you don’t have. In this situation, you must continue to do the job that you’re given or find another place of employment. Either way, you must forgive your boss and the person who got the promotion, if you have gotten angry about the situation at both parties. Furthermore, you can work hard and take some college courses, which may guarantee that you will not be passed over whenever the next promotion takes place.

If you have a dispute with your new neighbor, you must try to dissolve this dispute in a civil yet timely manner. Unfortunately, some people are impossible to deal with and that will not come to any kind of compromise. So therefore, try to stop the argument, by producing all documents that show your land line or what the argument was about. Additionally, you must forgive you neighbor and move forward in solving the issue at hand. Sometimes this means, you must compromise or even seek legal advice on solving the problem. However, you must forgive your neighbor, if you get angry with him and let God handle the situation.

Don’t let yourself stay in a pity party, instead get up and change your situation. Sometimes you are going to come across situations that you can’t change. Therefore, you must learn to pray and give your problems to God, because he is only one who can change the situation. Don’t be a negative person, because of something that was done to you, which was beyond your control. Additionally, get over it and dwell on things that can change your situation, while helping you move forward in your life.
