They say we learnt to draw attention to ourselves when we were babies by crying, the louder we cried, the faster we received the attention.
This behaviour continues until our adulthood and as it still works for us sometimes, so we tend to sharpen our skills and become drama masters very soon.
Some people master the art of causing pity to others so they can get what they want. Some learn how to blame others so they can be seen as victims of external factors/people and, I must admit some of them are real good at it.
We still use that resource when we want to “persuade” others to give us something or to do something for us.
But how many times this whining has helped us to reach our goals? To learn a life lesson? To manifest a dream?
This attitude is only getting us away from them.
Of course we have learnt to justify our “choices” and behaviours in a brilliant way, but do you actually think the others really believe our “reasons”?
To their eyes we are liars and we just end up frustrated, because in the end we cannot lie to ourselves.
But all those frustrations are your own choice. There could be external factors, people who make you angry and too many other “reasons”, but in the end you are the only one who chose that feeling.
Be your real self, do not give anyone else the power to change your true personality. Do not allow others to make you heart hard, do not allow external situations or people to turn your light into hate, do not allow bitterness to turn you cold.
You do not need to wear a mask in front of others in order to get what you need or want anymore.
In the end people will not remember the lies you told them all along. They will remember the difference you made in their lives, how you made them feel and the laughs they shared with you.
Think about it.
