@handymanny22, Have you forgotten who you were? Or are you caught up in emotions?

“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company… a church… a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past… we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you… we are in charge of our Attitudes.”

@handymanny22, are you getting angry at things that are in your own life, or things that are beyond your control? I find it’s easier to just focus on your own life, no point in getting mad at stuff like the government and whatnot if you can’t take action to change it. What aboutlife is making you so mad? And what can you do to solve it?

@handymanny22, accept the corrosive propaganda that they are trying to constantly feed you, that will surely annihilate this pathetic burst of free will that you`re going through; or you could contemplate your situation and stop asking people for advice on self-sedation.

@ojai, ive forgotten who i am and in so ive lost control of my emotions trying to find myself, pushing things that shouldnt be pushed, getting frustrated over things i just cant continue to commit on changing. i can change… but only for a short period of time, i want permanent, i just dont know how or where to look for it, for happiness. for the “red pill” if thats what ive come to uderstand that is.

@handymanny22, What do you do to entertain yourself? It’s good that you have your relationship as a top priority, but what do you do to keep yourself igniting its existence?

@handymanny22, Maybe what you need is to stop looking to change things around you. It all starts inside yourself first and foremost. The world isn’t conspiring against you. I’m not saying you are saying it is but nonetheless. You have everything you need inside you. I have faith that you haven’t forgotten who you are…maybe you’ve forgotten how to react, though. That could all sound cliche but to be real that’s what it is.

It’s understandable to be upset if a relationship isn’t going well. The world seems very dull and gray when you’re in the midst of relationship troubles because at the time all you really want is for things to feel right again.

If I can give you any advice I would say don’t fall prey to being a victim of circumstance. Maybe it’s really not you that’s lost yourself but instead you’re conflicted and unsure of how to handle it. If you REALLY want change, you will make that change happen. Think about it.

Or perhaps you just preferred being lost rather than found?

@beyond, i honestly wish i knew the answer to that question, i have no clue on what my passion is, what i absolutely love doing. so sadly, i cant answer that..

@handymanny22, Just because you haven’t found your passion yet doesn’t mean you have reason to be sad about it. You’re here asking questions. That’s as good a place to start as any!

@handymanny22, How can you forget who you are? you are you. You can be defined only by the mere fact of your existence. Perhaps you have forgotten the way you once saw yourself. But hey your in luck. You just have a think of a new way you want to see yourself then realise and practice the defining actions of such an image. But the important thing to remember is that no matter what you do it is you who is doing it. If you act like a dick then you are a dick or if you act like a nice guy then you are a nice guy, it isn’t some strange phenomenon that is making you that way, it is the way you are choosing to be.

@handymanny22, Just remember my friend, that everything you are going through right now in your life, every struggle, every challenge, every loss, is only preparing you for something greater in life ahead. Appreciate all these lessons you’re learning right now because one day you are going to be glad to have gone through all this. Look at the bright side and that’s where you’ll be standing soon enough.It is an opportunity life is presenting you to build character and strength. And remember to take everything one at a time.
