“It’s all on you. Some people develop. Others do not.”
I wrote that on my last post, How Can I Raise My Vibration? I got me thinking about people who never do develop or raise their vibration. I wouldn’t say, I figured this out in five minutes, but it got me thinking of people who spend their whole lives battling something that isn’t even there.
I’m talking about the grown woman, stuck in rage over what her mother did, thirty years ago. Or the person who can’t let go of some old lover, cut their losses and move on. Someone wronged you and that’s it. You can no longer function. You’re impaired.
I’m not saying that anything in life is easy. But if it’s that miserable, that’s all the more reason to strive to be free.
We get attached to our stories, whether we’re victims or victors in them. This costs us! I’ve done it myself.
I was horrifically abused when I was a kid. I was homeless at one time. But this was decades ago.
When is the last time I missed a meal? Fifteen years old? Sixteen? That’s in the ancient past, now. It’s done and it has no bearing on my life today, really.
Same with the times I was on top, riding high. Who cares? I used to be someone? Like I’m some kind of faded child star now, or what?
The older I get, the more I realize, what matters is what you do, today. What will you do today?
Hurt someone? Do some kind of good deed? Whine? Act? Improve? Degrade?
Will you try something new? Try harder? Will you forgive? Will you hold your grudge? Will you do better or allow yourself to do worse? Will you check yourself? Pick up the trash in your house or your life and get rid of it?
Or will it be another rehash?
If it’s going to be another rehash, here’s a song for you. At least you can smile while you suffer – yes?
I like to get into my suffering. I’m all for writhing around in pain, and/or lying still like a corpse, in dark clothing.
But jeez. This can’t go on forever. At some point, you’ve got to get up, leave your troubles behind and head off to slay a new dragon.
Are you fighting an invisible demon? How many years, now?
