Tales From the Road
Well, this is going to be a slightly different version of Tales From the Road. I came to a realization on the road, and I'm going to share my thoughts with you guys here.
Push and Pull
Life is really a series of push and pull, or cause and effect if you will. No matter how you approach it, no matter how careful you are, you ALWAYS have to face the consequences of your actions. I know this better than most. I see people every day refusing to take responsibilty for their actions, they just want to blame any one else. That's exactly what's wrong with the world today! When something doesn't go the way they want it to, they lash out at the world and blame everyone but themselves. Lord knows I've made some bad choices in my life, but that's exactly what they were, choices that I made! If you don't like the circumstances of your life, then make better choices, and accept responsiblity for the choices that you make! Right now, as I'm typing my thoughts, I see people posting about how their being mistreated. Sometimes, yes people can be cruel and this is a cruel world. One situation I'm familiar with is someone who's family members want nothing to do with that person because of life choices that person made. This person, instead of blaming the family members for not wanting to deal with the negativity and the dangers of this situation, should take a look at themselves and think "What have I done to cause this situation?" Evenutally all the horrible life decisions you make, the lies you tell, basically the repercussions of the decisions you make finally catch up with you. What is the old adage? "You made your bed and now you must lay in it" All I can say to this person is, you made a bad choice, you refuse to change the situation, so you must live with the results. All I'm trying to say is, if you dont like the way your life is going, instead of gripping about it and asking the whole world to feel sorry for you, make the necessary changes to improve your life. If you keep making the same mistakes all your life, how do you expect any different results? The best thing any of us can do is to rexamine our lives, fix the issues that we are causing ourselves, and accept the responsibility of our actions. It's that simple people! We control the situations of our lives, so it's up to YOU to make the best of it!
