Love Yourself, Love Life

Whenever I notice someone who appears angry at the world, I cannot help but wonder if they are also angry with themselves. Loving Life cannot be easy when sad things happen, and sad things should not be forgotten, nor can they be. But they should be overcome. When people make mistakes in life, which everyone does, too often the person tries to push the blame on everyone or anyone. What do you think? Should a person continue to make excuses for their own mistakes and find life is unhappy - or would a person be much better off by forgiving others, and forgiving themselves? And ultimately be able to enjoy life.

well no men is a perfect person in this world. Everyone will bound to make a mistake in each stage of their life. What is important is what do we do after making a mistake. Do we apologize and then move on? Or do we keep dwelling on it and keep blaming others? If we keep on dwelling on the mistakes made and finding excuses, we would keep thinking the world owes us a living. But we were able to forgive others, forgive ourselves for the mistakes made, then we would be a happier person. We would think of ways not to make the mistakes and what lessons we could take from it. I read from somewhere that when people made mistakes in life, they push the blame to others because is easier for them to accept that others is in the wrong but not them. Before I end this, I like to share the below message that I get from a facebook application: humans only learn by trial and error and that includes you. You've got to live life, not think about it. Step into the midst of things, try and fail and learn and stand up again. The question is not whether you will or will not make mistakes - you will. The question is do you want to learn and grow, or do you want to be shrink back and be stuck? Take that step you've been avoiding. You can succeed, or you can get feedback that it didn't work, but in either cases you are sure to feel alive

Anti-depressants would make someone addicted to it. When someone eats too much anti-depressants, he or she will be rely on it. That is why people who are on a long term anti-depressants would still turn to anti depressant. They think anti depressant will make them feel happy. But it is not the case. Anti depressant is used to soothe the symptoms of feeling depressed, so that they they would feel so much of emotionally drained, not to make them feel happy

Hi there.I think everyone has the time to make mistake.Someone used to blame others and just due the sad thing to the boring world.To this situation,we just need breathing deeply and make us peaceful and think about the matter .No matter what is the reason caused the mistake,we should forgive and forget the sad things.What we obtain is just an experience,and then go on our life.

Hopelessness sometimes makes us so depressed and makes us angry with the world. I also exprienced that sometimes I don't want to continue to live because what's the use of existing in this world if I'm suffering. We are responsible of our actions but sometimes we can't control the problems and trials that are coming to our life. It seems that it is endless and there's no solution. God is still with us and lets depend on Him whenever we are down.

Suffering is a Mystery. I personally believe in reincarnation which explains so many 'unanswerable' things. Be strong, my Friend.

Life is full of trials and errors and consequently mistakes are most obvious. It really does pain when you think you have taken precautions to eliminate these mistakes and still see yourself falling helplessly and hopelessly over them and that is the part that really hurts and not making the mistakes per say. All the same as far as we are living and we are not God, we are erroneous in nature and are bound to make mistakes severally. The good part is that we shouldn't re-live in our mistakes but use them as stepping stones for a better tomorrow and consequently be able to achieve our goals and enjoy the life we are supposed to enjoy. All the best.

I am always happy when I see someone who believes, as I do, that life should be enjoyed. Of course, there will be stumbling blocks throughout, but to learn and grow as we struggle to find stable ground is truly what makes life worth living.

I strongly believe that a person needs to take full responsibilty for their actions. I know that there are times that mistakes do happen and we all do that. But you need to apologize and move on. To me to say look what I did and know that no one is to blame is someone that is strong self minded person. I will havve to agree that people that get so angry are missing something in their lives. Soul searching is always good..You have a nice day..

Hey, I think that they would be much happier if they would forgive others and forgive themselves. I don't think that if a person continues to make excuses, that they will end up good, their life will be of total misery. Make sure you have a good day, Happy Lotting!!
