Perspective

When you get upset, ask yourself is it worth it? After the year we have experienced, I don’t think there is a more important question to ask, and to remember to always keep perspective.

Is what I am about to get upset about worth it? After the year we have experienced, I don’t think there is a more important question to constantly ask yourself, and to remember to always keep perspective.

This year has brought about challenges that many people have never faced before: loss of jobs, depletion of savings, time without seeing friends or family members, sickness, and in extreme cases the loss of loved ones. So, when you get upset over that frustrating workday or the stressful argument between you and a family member, is it worth it? It would great to say that every time you get in a negative state of mind that you can talk yourself out of it, but the reality is that is not always the case.

Sometimes you have so much built up that it feels like the world is resting on your shoulders, that people don’t understand what you are going through, or that no one’s day could be as bad as yours. I am here to tell you…IT IS OK TO FEEL THAT WAY!

However, the important thing is to constantly remind yourself at the end of these bad thoughts about all the good that is also in your life. Whether it be the fact that you have a loving spouse/partner to go home to when you are having a bad day…whether it be that you have a supportive group of family and friends that you get to argue with, and then make up with five minutes later ….whether it be that you have a job while so many have lost theirs…whether it is that you are still healthy while so many others have gotten sick. Always keep perspective.

I am not here saying that you don’t have the right to have bad days, everyone does! I just want to remind you that while you may be having a bad day, there is someone out there that may be having one that is even worse. Always remember to count your blessings in this world. Always remember to outpour your heart with love. Always keep perspective.
