Before dealing with our issues with others, we should first start dealing with the issues we have with ourselves. Instead of searching for what bothers us in others, we must first find what bothers us in ourselves. And if we want to see a change in others or in our relationships, the change must first come from deep within us. We won’t find peace of mind with others, if we are not in peace with ourselves first.
So if you suddenly find yourself too suffocated, too pressured, too fed up with the whole word, if you feel that all your relationships are degrading and that you no longer can stand to make the extra effort with anyone, if you start to see yourself as a victim of society and start becoming too negative, too aggressive and too grumpy, and if you find yourself always angry for no particular or valid reasons, then it’s time to realize that the world is not the problem and that there is something deeper than that, coming straight from within you.
Take time for yourself to figure out what the real issue is and where the roots of all this anger is coming from. Focus on making yourself better and on eliminating all the stress and negativity. Try to adapt a better lifestyle, eat healthier, meditate, exercise, sleep better, pamper yourself, take care of yourself and find ways to heal your soul.
Once you do so, you’ll have a lighter heart and you will find that dealing with others becomes much easier.
So tell me, what do you do when you feel that you’re too suffocated? How do you deal with your relationships and how do you drag yourself out of the dark?
