How can I stay positive ?
Hey I've been going through a really tough time for about 3 years and things just don't seem to gt any better my mom passed 3 years ago and my dad doesn't talk to me and I'm 24 years old trying to survive !! Granted I think that I will become stronger but it is very tough I walk to work everyday and I have a clubbed foot which hurts every night . I seem to be just swimming in a spiral of negativity I have one twin sister that has struggled too and has 2 kids with a black man that's abusive and controlling and is 21 and uses other people including my sister . I feel like crap and very alone I honestly don't know what to do. I don't make enough for health insurance or to buy a car and I have no family that contacts me . I already know I will be spending thanksgiving and Christmas alone I could care less abou gifts but it hurts a lot what can I do to stay positive how can things get better ? Thanks

I hear you, it's been a bit tough here too, but I won't get into it, just, difficult and stressful.

Life is what you make it.. you being a key word. No-one will change your outlooks or situation for you, you must do it yourself.... Do not take those as me being abrasive, its not how I'm trying to convey my attempt to answer your question and I can only do so by applying my life experiences the last 33 year's and I'm sure its much different then yours. Results will vary, you will make wrong decisions you swore were the right , correct or logical ones. Sometimes life is a bloody mess but all you can do is keep tracking and be willing and open to makeajor changes or minor changes in your life and behavior to make a more positive exsistence for yourself.. good luck and chin up.

Re: How can I stay positive ?
My advice to you op..get out of the system as soon and as much as you can..away from cities..towns..etc..head for small rural villages..here in europe they are lovely..dont know what they are like over there.Live simply in contact with nature..limit your needs and debts or better still have none..grow spiritually and try to surround yourself with loving people with true values

Live from the earth, with tne earth..get animals..love them..they help to heal emotionally in my opinion.

As consumers we are addicted to society..we tick according to its values..get a job..make money..etc..but tbe world of God tbat is here though we dont see it says...leave everything..and follow me..

Look for the signs to lead you and point the way..if you ask for them they will happen..Too often God speaks to us..pointing the way where he wants us to be..our place..a place prepared for us and us alone..but we are tied to things and people that lead us astray and we dont listen to God..and when we take that one wrong turn at the crossroads its usually too late.

Make the right choices op and run..run away..this place is cursed

At least that is what i believe
Matthew 16>18
And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it..
Peter was crucified..on Vatican Hill

"Thou shalt not kill" does not apply to murder of one's own kind only, but to all living beings; and this Commandment was inscribed in the human breast long before it was proclaimed from Sinai. ~Leo Tolstoy


You have heard that it was said, "You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy."
But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.
For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have?

..Immanuel ,The Christ (Sermon Of The Mount)


“WHAT YOU DO TO OTHERS YOU DO TO YOURSELF FOR THAT IS THE LAW..AND THE PROFIT"

..)

Preach the Gospel at all times..and when necessary use words..

St.Francis Of Assisi..

Dont look at where the finger is pointing..but at WHO is doing the pointing

K, instead of being labeled an AC on that post, I am labeled by the forum as "!".

what does that mean? never seen it before.... maybe I'm onto something??. It'll probably change at some point and someone will throw up a BS flag or something...

God bless you all, I seriously mean that. These ain't easy times. Keep yourself grounded and strong and faith in the light/postitive, for me that is Christ, b/c we gonna need it...

Re: How can I stay positive ?
I'm so sorry for the loss of your mom OP...that's so painful and has got to be tough at your age. Young women need their moms. You must feel so alone...and I understand that feeling.

Your dad must be hurting inside too...I don't know what the problem between you is...but family is forever and as you get older...you'll realize how much family matters. I hope you can bridge that gap with him somehow.

What your sister is going through is so dysfunctional....but you need to realize it is her problem...not yours. You can be supportive to her, but separate from who you are, and don't let it effect your daily emotions because ultimately, it is her problem to solve when she's ready.

Sounds like you need some supportive people around you. I know that's tough when you don't have money or close friends, so maybe join a young persons group at a church? You could find like minded people there who will understand and do things with. Maybe also you could find a wise woman there to be like a mom to you.

Also...our thoughts shape our perspectives of life. So guard your thoughts and keep them positive because WHAT you think becomes your reality. Prayers and love out to you sweetie. hf

Re: How can I stay positive ?
set some goals in your life
little ones at first (get a bike to cycle to work)
welcome the day with a smile even if you feel like crying
(fake it till you make it)
and stop feeding the wrong wolf

One day an old Native American grandfather was talking to his grandson. He said, "There are two wolves fighting inside all of us - the wolf of fear and hate, and the wolf of love and peace."

The grandson listened, then looked up at his grandfather and asked, "Which one will win?"

The grandfather replied, "The one we feed."


what ever you focus on in life you make real ...
try to keep your focus positive.

also do not blame life ..when you have a choice in the way you wish to look at it.

keep positive

Stay strong gurl and know there are forces (non religious) which feel for you and love you, including this random stranger :)

Just keep on keepin on gurl and do what u can to make things better, even just in small ways, small things can make a big difference sometimes :D
