If you’ve found yourself thinking or saying things like “Nothing good ever happens to me” or “I have the worst luck,” know that you’re not alone in these thoughts. It’s natural to fall into this way of thinking when nothing seems to be going right or when we’re met with difficult challenges. But we tend to forget that everyone has moments in life when nothing seems to be going right. And everyone is met with difficult challenges from time to time. That’s just part of life’s unpredictable ebb and flow.
This quote, by Naide Obiang, reminds us that it doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with us. It’s not personal. And so, we can begin to shed any woe-is-me mentality we might have lingering in our heads. Thereby making way for a more positive outlook on our life and situation.
