In an imperfect world, we seek perfection, our expectations soar, when reality is really far from perfect. And so we get disappointed, and with disappointment comes resentment and we end up feeling unhappy.
And with that, we try to change the situation, to what we perceive as our utopia, and when we fail.. The dissatisfaction cycle goes on.
What a vicious cycle it is.
And then I read this:
When we are no longer able to change a situation - we are challenged to change ourselves.
(Victor E. Frankl)
And I decided to stop trying to make my life fit into this frame I have painted in my head, that in order for me to be really happy, I need to change ME, the way I see things, the way I deal with them, and try to make do, to settle.
- to a smooth road ahead xx
