Dear Future Self: It's All a Matter of Perspective

Thursday, August 14, 2014 2 Comments A+ a-

Sometimes we underestimate the ability of our own minds. We let outside forces bring us down. We let other people tell us that we’re not smart enough or pretty enough; up to the point that we cause our own destruction. We let their opinion influence our own. And, let me tell you, that this is sad and it sucks.

Although the opinions of others are to be given importance, when it comes to our own persona, it’s what we think of ourselves that matter. We forget that our brain has the ability to turn everything around. It’s all a matter of perspective.

Being a person who can’t take criticisms that well, I’ve learned that all you have to do is to find those positive charges (a little term I use haha) from negative comments. The people that hurt us make us stronger (cliché, but true). The tasks and challenges we face now prepare us for even harder ones in the future.
It’s all about which way you look because the wind is gonna blow no matter what.

RIP Robin Williams. =’( It hurts to think that a person who made so many people happy couldn't make himself happy too. May he rest in peace.
