[Tips?] Outlook on Life
Hi everyone! I'm going to share something with you all.
This is for everyone. Not just people having a tough time or are confused on how to live life, but.. everyone.
This is my outlook on life.
I have found my own meaning in life, which is difficult for a lot of people to find.
A lot of people aren't even sure why they're here.. This being one of the reasons that religion is, well, popular in most societies; to give people purpose. Anyway that's besides the point. A lot of people ask themselves: Why are we here? Why am I here? What are we supposed to do? What's the point? What am I supposed to do with my life?
However, I've had my conclusion for a little while now..
To put it simply, my conclusion is.. In life, there is no good or bad. It's all just perception. Perception of how we see our lives. And based on these perceptions, we lead a life bound to a certain point. However, this point is not set and can change. Reality is merely one's perception of the world around them. They could live in a harsh, unforgiving reality, or they could live in a peaceful reality with no cares in the world. Which one is correct? Who knows for sure; it's all perception. But, in life.. in order to live it at all.. you have to love. There is no room for hate. Hate and negative emotions cloud someone's vision, and can affect their perception of reality. Their perception of life itself. This, this is why horrible things happen in our world.
If other people don't like you.. if other people choose to throw their hate at you.. they simply have their vision clouded. By what, I'm not sure. It's different for every person, but.. usually, someone won't like something about themselves. That will affect their reality. In order to live life, one must love themselves. One must learn to accept the things around them, and take them with a grain of salt while looking at a larger picture. This picture as well is different for everyone, but someone can't see all of it unless they let go of their hate, their sorrow, their suffering. In order to see it.. one must focus on what they want. No matter what you do in life, focus on that and don't let others opinions about it affect you. Do what you desire. Do what you love. Do what makes you happy.
Negativity.. negativity only breeds more negativity. I'll present a metaphor. Around bodies of water, air becomes moist and creates humidity. Through this humidity, clouds will form and fill with supercooled air. After enough of it has gathered, more water falls. In this case the clouds are people and events, and the rain represents negativity.
But.. if you feel discontent, just sit outside. Sit outside, close your eyes, and breathe deeply. Only focus on your breathing, and don't think about anything else. It's meditation, basically. It.. really helps me on bad days. And walks, walks outside help too. After meditating I usually go for a short walk around the loop I live in. Afterward I feel so refreshed and I actually look at things and appreciate them. I can really take everything in and clear my head of all the bad things and the negative feelings.
And.. I've realized.. that no matter what.. I can appreciate everything.
Let's say you were looking to have more money. You felt really negatively about how little you had. Let's say you wanted.. 5 dollars every day. Even if you didn't make 5 physical dollars every day, if you look at life, you can see where five dollars was made. Depending on its worth to you of course. Making a new friend, or having a new experience. Those things, to me are my 5 dollars. As long as you love yourself.. it doesn't matter where you end up or where you go. You will live a happy life. Because in life there is no succeeding or failing. Those things.. don't matter in the end. There is only living. There is only living and loving. If you truly want to do your best you'll always strive for that if you love yourself. And that.. is my outlook on life.
