NEVER EVER DO THIS ONE THING

LIFE IS F*ING HARD.  LIKE super intense stressful hard. IT CAN BREAK YOU.  Suicide.  Drugs.  Alcohol.  Abuse.  Watch the news… My goodness Life IS HARD.

IT CAN FORCE YOU INTO IMPOSSIBLE SITUATIONS.

THERE WILL BE TOUGH DAYS.

THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT ARE GOING TO HATE YOU.  HATE YOU.

YOU WILL FAIL.

AND TRY.

AND FAIL.

AND TRY.

AND FAIL.

So there is one thing you MUST NEVER DO.  That is this:

Do NOT EVER, ever BEAT YOURSELF UP.

DON’T BE HARD ON YOURSELF.

Don’t question your worth.

Don’t be disappointed in yourself.

Don’t be frustrated with your goals.

Your body.

Your effort.

Your situation.

Your friends.

Your lot in life.

Anything.

You must always be your biggest fan.  Not arrogant of course, never.. but inwardly… you must believe in YOU!

Constantly repeat this:

“GOD MADE ME LIKE THIS FOR A REASON.  I am grateful.  I will be the best version of myself.  And when I am not even that… I will do better going forward.”

If you beat yourself up, you will then beat up those around you without you even realizing it.

You are LITERALLY punching yourself in the face… and the world is joining you.  How would you ever overcome your inner demons?  THAT IS GONNA HURT IF YOU DO THIS… ESPECIALLY IF YOU DO IT EVERY STINKING DAY!

Being critical of yourself is a scary, stressful place. If you start questioning yourself…  you won’t win EVER the battle in your head.  So don’t start.

 

It’s so easy to “be right” when you let yourself get mad at yourself.  So, easy to confirm the inner demons.  So don’t ever do it.  Ever.

 

Ok.. .maybe I can’t even convince you of this.  So step #2… “the backup plan”…

at least laugh about it….

think about it… you won’t ever be actually the best version of yourself, like this is a winless battle… in less than 100 years…

Remember no matter how hard you try… you are going to end up in a box.  Dead.

ALL OF US WILL BE DEAD.  MOST OF US I HOPE WILL ALL BE IN HEAVEN.  ALL OF THIS WILL BE OVER!  ALL OF IT!  SO LAUGH.   ENJOY ALL OF IT.  EVEN THE SUCKY PARTS.

ANNOUNCE TO YOURSELF…

“I’M ONE SCREWED UP MESS.”  AND SIMPLY LAUGH!

LASTLY…

we are ALL SCREWED UP.  So give yourself a friggin break.

And enjoy the circus my friends!

  1. Realize God made you for a reason.  He’s never made a loser. N E V E R.
  2. Don’t believe the inner demons.  Give yourself a pep talk, not a beat down.
  3. Expect to fail.  Hell, learn to enjoy the failures.
  4. We are all in it together.  Realize we ALL struggle.
  5. If all else fails, Laugh.  Just laugh.  It will all be over for us someday.

Peace and Grace,

Joel
