Motivational Diary: Don’t kill yourself for what you don’t have.
In life, we tend to compare ourselves other people, especially when we don’t have what we think we deserve.
Imagine finishing school at the age of 24 and having those big plans ahead of you… you know, you just plan and say: by age 24, I’ve started my masters… at age 28, I have a good job and I’ve gotten married.
But then life hits you fast and several things don’t fall into place (the way you want them to).
Doubts arise. You even get to a point to be asking questions like ‘where or how did I ever come into this kind of situation?’
The major thing that I want you reading this piece to know this night is that you need to find a reason to cheer yourself up.
The fact that you don’t have what you want does not mean that you’ve not achieved certain things that you should be happy about.
You don’t need to kill yourself over what you cannot control.
You don’t need to kill yourself over what you can’t have.
Sometimes you need to remember that your present situation is somebody’s prayer point, and your present location is someone’s expectation in life.
Think about it – what do you even hold as your pocket money or lunch money may be somebody’s salary for the month.
So there are many reasons to encourage yourself.
Don’t get to that point where you compare yourself other people. Be Grateful for what you have.
Remember: you don’t need to see your answers to be grateful.
