So, basically we are the safest and the most prosperous humans in the history of world, yet we are feeling more hopeless than ever before.
Do you know why?
Are we expecting more from people around us, or may be we are becoming greedy or just human temptations?
The better the world gets, there is more we have to lose I guess. And the more we have to lose, the less we feel we have to feel for.
Eventually, though, the most important things in life can’t be gained through bargaining. Bargaining with people around you into loving or respecting you feels shitty, isn’t?
If you have to convince someone to love you, then they don’t love you. If you want someone to be respecting you, then they will never respect you. If you have to convince someone to trust you, then they won’t be actually trusting you. ( Rightly said by MARK MANSON )
You can’t conspire for happiness. People who navigate life through bargaining might get far in the material world, but they will always remain crippled in their emotional world. As long as you look for someone to validate who you are by seeking their approval, you are settling yourself for disaster. You have to be whole and complete in yourself. You have to know who you are. And anytime if they try to make you feel unworthy. Stop bargaining for approval, trust and importance. Just go towards yourself, choose to love yourself more instead of expecting them to love you and try building an unshakable bond with your worth that there’s just nothing they can ever do to take you away from it.
It is rightly said;
sometimes the universe will remove or withhold, not to hurt you, but to free you or save you from what doesn’t lead you home.
So, take time
