– Work on yourself –
Today I would love to share these beautiful words with you from the book Eat Pray Love:
||| “As I focus on diligent joy, I also keep remembering a simple idea my friend Darcey told me once — that all the sorrow and trouble of this world is caused by unhappy people. Not only in the big global Hitler-‘n’-Stalin picture, but also on the smallest personal level. Even in my own life, I can see exactly where my episodes of unhappiness have brought suffering or distress or (at the very least) inconvenience to those around me. The search for contentment is, therefore, not merely a self-preserving and self-benefiting act, but also a generous gift to the world. Clearing out all your misery gets you out of the way. You cease being an obstacle, not only to yourself but to anyone else. Only then are you free to serve and enjoy other people.” ― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love |||
This text tells us so beautifully that it is very important to keep working on yourself.
And it is also very recognizable, we can all recall moments that we were unhappy and therefore maybe did hurt the people around us, or were not nice to deal or hangout with.
Keep working on yourself:
For yourself, for the people around you and for the world. Don’t stand in your own way but take your feelings and emotions seriously and work on them, work on the grief that you feel, your frustration, your anger, all the feelings that eat at you, and work on it!
As hard and difficult as it is.
