What words would you use to describe your life?


What do you use to tell yourself and others about your life? Do you present a cheerful and hopeful image of your life or a sad and unfortunate one?

It's not so much what happens to us in this life that matters, but how we handle and respond to it. Life is challenging on a daily basis. That is simply the way things are. So, assuming you'd like to avoid the hand you've been given, you have the choice to whine all you want, but it won't change or better the situation. It will increase tensions.

Summary of Our Lives

Our lives are defined by the stories we tell ourselves and others about ourselves. Everyone experiences both positive and negative events. However, it is the tale we tell that emphasizes the significance of the occasion.

We've all heard inspiring stories of people who have faced obstacles and difficulties. Those are the stories that everyone enjoys hearing. They assist us in remembering the accomplishment of the human spirit. On the other hand, we frequently hear from well-meaning companions, friends, and relatives about their misery and ruin. We hear a lot of exaggerated stories about illness and unhappiness. Whatever the case may be, all of the enrichment of the dreadful adds to the terribleness of your existence. You receive what you concentrate on. You find what you're looking for. If you concentrate on "how bad it is," that is exactly what you will get: a bigger amount of "how awful it is." Assuming that you are oriented on decency, you will receive a bigger quantity of "the upside."

It's up to you how you want to describe your life!

You have complete control over the stories you tell about yourself. You might choose to reduce the negative aspects of your life and focus on the positive aspects.

You can choose to channel your emotions into bright and cheerful things while keeping your impassioned remarks and tales about bad things to a minimum. We all have things in our life that we don't like and things that happen to us that we'd rather not have, yet our lives go on. Our accounts are also still open. The tale you tell about what happened to you contains the significance of what happened to you. When you change your story, you change your life because the meaning and importance of what happened have changed.

According to Viktor Frankl, author of the groundbreaking book "Man's Search for Meaning" :

“Everything can be taken from a man or a woman but one thing: the last of human freedoms to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”

All things considered, Mr. Frankl had to go through one of the most dreadful experiences of his life. He could have told a horrible story, but he chose not to. He saw meaning in it in some manner, and he determined that his story would be a success for his soul.
