Live Life On Your Terms

If you want to feel ownership over your life, start asking yourself questions about who you want to be, and how you want to live, love and experience your life. Write your answers down, and start living these answers. No one can live your life for you, make it happy for you, or take care of the stress for you. These are all things you need to do for yourself, so you can love and respect yourself. There is nothing worse than feeling like you don’t have control over your life, and to live in a state of neediness hoping that somehow, someway someone or something will take the pressure off. Nothing changes in our lives until we decide to live our lives on our own terms. You have the power to take over any time you choose and to get out of the neediness that you experience. A fully lived life is not one lived waiting for others to do for you what you can do for yourself. The miracle to this is that the more you’re willing to do for yourself, the more others will want to do for you. The less you’re willing to do for yourself, the less people will want to help you. We want to help those people who we respect. If you’re not living fully then you cannot expect life or people to change this for you. This is something we have to do for ourselves. If we let others determine the terms we live by, then we will not find happiness. If you’re not happy, start asking yourself questions and start living your own answers. In life you have to help yourself. It’s the deepest and most profound help you will ever get. When you go within you find the strength of your spirit, and there is nothing stronger, more loving or confidence building than that.
