Don't Be Bitter?
It's REALLY hard when someone gets or has something that you need or want desperately. Especially when you need it.
So how do you not be bitter about this sort of thing? Well, it's not easy. In fact, I think it's somewhat impossible at first. But one thing to remember is that everyone has a different journey.
Which, in the moment, seems to be BS but honestly, everyone is going through something and has a different way to get to where they're going. It's a hard thing when life seems incredibly unfair and it seems like no one takes your struggles seriously.
But you will get through it, even if your struggle is chronic, there are highs and lows, and the lows will end, even if they're long. One thing I've learned is to not be afraid to ask for help. That's a very unAmerican thing, but if you need help ASK FOR IT. So many people are able and SO willing to give it. That's what a support system is for!
So in the new year, when life gets hard, look at your support system you've created and dip into it instead of running away and hiding. Or, if you don't have a good support system yet, take this year to build one! It's never too late!
