3 bits

Three bits of advice that I'd like to put out there, even if only to myself.

1) Always be the better person. It may suck in the short term, but in the long run, you'll respect yourself and it's nice to know you acted respectfully, mindfully, and can be righteous about being a wonderful, civil, honorable person.

2) Trust your instincts. Don't be suspicious; rather, know your _______ (fill in the word - nemesis, enemy, former friend, assfuck who disrespected you and has no integrity whatsoever, etc.)

3) Don't obsess. Find positive outlets. Take the high ground. Don't focus on the thing holding you back. Find things that will cultivate positive feelings and surround the world with more love. The world needs more love.

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

These can be difficult, but they do work, especially surrounding yourself with people who add to your life, with love.

All too true, spoken by a fellow survivor. Taking steps in a positive direction, reminding me of my True Self. I'm good. I want to stay that way. And I want to keep working to make myself even better, every day.
