Does It Get Better?

Good, better and best conceptEmotions are an amazing driver.  They make the highs higher and the lows lower.  They can sharpen focus as well as cloud judgement.  They are the epitome of paradox.

However, when we’re up, we don’t necessarily care nor acknowledge what’s coming next.  When we are low, though, we completely shut out what’s coming.  Our emotions can drive us so low, that we tend to ask ourselves:  does it get better?

This is also the first thing that Others tell us.  “Oh, don’t worry, it’ll get better”.  “Well, there’s always tomorrow.”  Heck, I’m a huge culprit of this.  This entire site is built on such a sentiment.  However, does this really help out those whom we are targeting?

The answer is No….and Yes.  No, by itself it doesn’t help.  However, the love and sentiment behind the words do.  It’s reassurance that there are brighter days ahead which helps, however it does not give any finality of the pain and suffering.  It’s ice for the wound, numbs the pain, but isn’t a cure.

So…DOES it get better?  Yes!  How do we get there?

That, my friends, is the question that can only be answered by everyone on a personal level.  The only person who can rescue us from our lows is our self.  We have to make the decision that today will be better than yesterday and that tomorrow will be easier than today.

The keys to success is to examine and find the positive.  Hold on to what works, don’t dwell on what doesn’t.  Simple in practice…Hard in execution.  Well, Hard at first, but start small and build from there.  Go from Good to Better to Best.

Examine.
