Strive for your happiness even if you don’t think you’re worth it.

Strive for your happiness even if you don’t think you’re worth it.

New years is here and everyone is not only trying to ingest their Christmas dinners but they’re trying to ingest the fact that resolutions need to be implemented.
The most difficult part of this activity isn’t pondering materialistic garbage we wish to derive, it’s coming to terms with the realization that we hate ourselves.
All throughout our lives we were told we weren’t good enough. We were demanded to do things we didn’t like, and we came to conclusions that we despise ourselves because everyone else belittled us in our growth stages. This isn’t an easy situation to swallow. In most cases it dwindles our confidence.
Each of us regardless of where you came from or what your beliefs are, we’ve gone through mental turmoil when it comes to fitting in society and making something of ourselves. It’s obvious that each of us go through demanding times in the workplace and in our family lives but what’s not normally talked about is the hatred we host towards ourselves.
Life is monotonous at best. It’s full of chaos and inner turmoil. Mental challenges face us every day, and we can’t forget to blame everyone else for the struggles we go through. This is obvious to everyone but was not so obvious is the fact that we are our own worst critics tenfold. Neither of us like ourselves, and we are constantly competing for other people’s lives; those of which are despised by the owners themselves.
Suicide is at the forefront of of American families. School shootings are a dime a dozen, and we need to make friends with our worst enemies because we don’t want to take the time to get to know anyone else, only to be taken advantage of by their narcissistic tendencies. Times are trivial, far different than they ever used to be. The most difficult part of living enjoyably is understanding where to draw the line when it comes to finding enjoyment.
Life expects so much of us. We are constantly demanded to make more of ourselves and make more money. Accomplishment is the forefront of every conversation we have. In the realm of it all everyone we meet is trying to find out what we do so they can situate themselves in a way that’s profitable for them.
It’s true that neither of us want to get to know our neighbour nor do we care to get to know our friends any deeper because we resent them with jealousy. We wish we had their lives. Little did we know, they wish they had our lives.
All of these daunting situations gets mixed into the reality that our confidence is dwindling in the competition of it all. Trying to be the best at what we do while trying to be accepted in our friendship circles is saddening. It’s not often we come across a truly compassionate individual; someone who empathizes with what you’re going through. Conversations aren’t actual because each of us sees a different scenario within the same equation. Life itself seems more like a board game or an electronic experience rather than the physical reality we were taught from the beginning.
In the mix of it all, we generalize ourselves amongst the masses. We diffuse our ambition based on the fact that nobody else has ambition. We fail to realize that we are capable of living masterful lives; something more courageous than we ever thought possible but in the mix we lose the empathy for ourselves and become defeated. 
When was the last time you told yourself you were wonderful? When was the last time you had someone else tell you that you are wonderful? The reality is; each of us are wonderful in mysterious ways but we fail to realize this.
Not everyone hosts suicidal thoughts but a lot of us do. Mental health is of concern to everyone — every family is dealing with a mental health concern. In reality, Each of us are still searching for happiness regardless of how far we’ve come or if we are dealing with a mental health concern or not.
Thoughts of hatred and regret, remorse and the like are all situated around lack of confidence. Regardless of how far we’ve come in business doesn’t amount to how far we’ve come in our personal relationships. It seems as though if we are striving in business we are failing in our personal lives. On top of it all we are judged by other people. It drains our mentality at the end of each day. When we go to sleep at night rarely do we see success because we are so bogged down by responsibility and scrutiny.
All too often we are scrutinized for the things we do; at our jobs and by our mates at home. If you’ve been determined to stay married you are amongst less than 1/2 of the population. If you actually like yourself you are amongst less than 5{e481746ea8be6be64f4ea1269eca37b2626d2a7feb7d55cdaf54c7f459a91701} of the population. Aside from statistics most of the time we need someone else to inspire us to like ourselves. In the mix, how are we supposed to situate our goals and find resolutions for the new year? It just doesn’t make sense.
I live in Calgary where weather isn’t favourable but there is a lack of population so it makes it more favourable than anywhere else. Overpopulation to me is daunting. I can’t imagine driving further than 30 minutes to get to where I need to be but others see life differently; they don’t mind an hour and a half drive to-and-from their workplace because they enjoy what they do or they get paid well, or they get respected by their employer. Based on these factors they would find the drive to work less daunting whereas 15 minutes in traffic for me is ridiculous. Say you live in Mexico City where the heat is too much. Plus the overpopulation makes it incredibly difficult to get around, and the thought of leaving an air-conditioned facility is stupid —  they would value happiness completely different than I would. The truth is; it doesn’t matter what hand you were dealt you can choose to strive above and beyond your previous limitations to make something of yourself regardless of how much you hate yourself.
It’s time to let go of your limitations; the ones you’ve hosted about yourself for years, and it’s time to treat yourself with a little more respect – you are worthwhile! Make 2020 a tremendous one and rediscover yourself in a new way.
The reason why you hate yourself is because you haven’t gotten to know yourself enough. Whether you practice meditation, enjoy the outdoors, strive for accomplishment, or find new friends more in line with your values, make something of yourself and know that you can make it happen!
