The colors of life

“Never put the keys to your happiness in someone else’s pocket.”
 
 
“I’m not going to censor myself to comfort your ignorance.””
 
 
“Sometimes I find myself listening to random songs in hopes that I will find one that can express the words or feelings that I can’t.”
 
“I think of problems as like multiple tangled up elastic bands. Each band represents a unique problem, but each are tangled up with the others. So the key to be problem free (if possible) is not by solving each problem at a time but by seeing how the problems interconnect with one another and solving accordingly. So for example, you would examine each aspect at a time and try to see the connections between them then you can figure out the solution(s) to all the problems.”
 
“Stop trying to “get it together.” The biggest lie we’re told when we’re growing up is that soon as we’re adults, as soon as we’re in college, finish college, get that job, have that steady income, find that someone special, “find ourselves,” find that perfect house, get that retirement fund, have those children, everything will fall into place. Here’s a secret: it won’t. Every new development in your life, good or bad, big or small, will come with its own very special set of challenges. The sooner you accept that, the better off you’ll be.”
I enjoy quotes that I can relate to or learn from. That is one of the reasons I do “quote day” 🙂 . I have been through a great deal in my life, but I was in denial for the longest time and would tell myself “there are other people that have it worse” which is true, but I was pretending what happened to me didn’t exist. I just didn’t want to play the victim. It took me so many years to get to where I am today and I’m still a little messed up, but now I realize, recognize, and I am more hopeful now. You might think this was off topic to my post, but the quotes pertain to life for the most part so I wanted to share a little piece of  and tell you that there is always HOPE!

  1. i enjoy your quotes. I use quotes in my work all the time. James Hillman talks about us “needing a vessel to express our pathologies.”
    I use quotes to stimulate me to expressing mine.
    They allow me to imagine the author’s perspective a little which allows me to hopefully transform my pathology from one of plight to one of acceptance, gratitude, whatever it is that helps me not be stuck in the mind based on the fear or anger.
    Please keep up what you do, it helps!

    • You are exactly right…it does help us to express ourselves. I tend to imagine what the Author was thinking when he wrote it and how it can relate to my situation. It gets the wheels turning
