Stop Feeling Sorry For Yourself
Now, let me ask you a question.
How many of us go around feeling sorry for ourselves?
Oh, come on. Admit it. We all do at times. It’s entirely natural.
It’s fantastic fun to wallow in a little self-pity.
Reminding ourselves how terrible the world is. How we’ve simply not been given the opportunities we need.
How it’s unfair that we’ve lost money, health, friends. How people are just plain against us.
We’re the victim. And self-pity allows us to give ourselves a little consolatory pat on the back. Ironically, it actually feels good because we’re proving ourselves right in the first place.
See what I mean? Think about it.
And it’s strange, because most of us don’t realize just how often we indulge in self-pity.
Most of us play the victim over and over again, many dozens of times each day.
We do it when we’re moaning about our jobs. When we’re worried about our looks.
When we’re questioning fate. When we’re envious. In fact, it’s so engrained into our lives, we do it almost automatically.
But self-pity is the very worst emotion. More so than anger, greed or any of the other baddies. Self-pity eats up everything else around it, leaving only itself standing.
It’s destructive, it’s addictive, it’s habitual. And it leaves you feeling powerless.
Yet self-pity also holds the key to eternal happiness – and true self development, if only you understand it correctly.
You see, if you truly learned to let go of all of your self-pity, then you would be happy, Naturally. Because self-pity is the only barrier to happiness.
Or, to put it all a lot simpler:
Stop feeling sorry for yourself – and you will be happy!
Stop moaning about work. Or how crazy your kids are. Or why that person is always rude to you. Or how life, fate, God, is just plain unfair.
Yes – life is sometimes cruel. And yes – it may be 100% true that you’ve been dealt one really crap hand.
It’s annoying, it’s frustrating, it makes you want to weep. There we go.
Why bother feeling sorry for yourself?
All it does is zap all of your energy and leave you apathetic.
Self-pity may feel good at first – but when emotion dries up, it’ll leave you empty and bitter.
So, once again, here it is. The quickest, simplest, easiest, most direct method of changing your life for good.
A method that will enable you to instantly become happier, and which will alter the way you view the world forever.
STOP FEELING SORRY FOR YOURSELF.
Stop it. And you will be happy. It’s really that simple.
There’s more self-development in that one sentence alone than almost every self-help course in the world.
So, if you take nothing else from this article, take just that one sentence and make it a part of your everyday life.
Every time you feel a tinge of personal sorrow, a flicker of self-pity – just think “Hey, stop feeling sorry for yourself!” – buck up, and get on with it.
The more you do it, the more it’ll become part of your personality, the more it’ll seriously change your life.
And this simple technique will change your life. That’s my personal promise to you.
It’s a great first step in removing your own inner limitations, and shifting you further toward true freedom, self development and happiness.
