I can confidently say my closest associate of late has been bad luck. It's been happening for the past 3 years now and nothing ever seems to work out
in my favor. At times I must admit that it is of my own making but it's mostly my environment, including: schools I attended, my Job, Government
Policies, delays in everything & the worst of luck in relationships. I'm seriously starting to believe someone put a hex on me, as silly as that may
I'm at a point where I can hold all of my cash in one hand, got no family or relatives to rely on or support me, got 2 friends I can count on, no
longer thinking about the future because life's hurdles just do not stop, almost homeless, wrecked my car and cannot afford any repairs, my health is
declining etc. This is really becoming frustrating...
No matter how hard I try the outcome is always the same, and I always look at my peers and realize just how happy they always seem. I mean all they do
is mass consume, party and live in an imaginary world as their 'alter egos', and yet they've got the whole world fooled. I on the other hand even
when successful, have been looked down at...for example I would see someone drive around in a $40,000 car show off and get 'props', whilst I had a
$100,000+ car (never showed off once) and was automatically called a hater when I commented or compared their car to mine, what gives?. At times
people would find it odd that someone of 'my kind' could afford to shop at high class stores or dine at fine restaurants (I'm in my early 20's and
mixed race). This may sound childish but I really don't understand human behavior at times.
A little bit of humor and some music to go with the thread:
“I busted a mirror and got seven years bad luck, but my lawyer thinks he can get me five.” - Stephen Wright
You have two good friends ? Better to have that than 100 fake azz friends who only hand around you because your paying.
Car got wrecked ? Medical issues ? You just told 100 other peoples stories at some point in their life. I had a car wrecked before. I had a medical
issue before. I was once broke.
But I'm happy because life isn't about things. I control my happiness. I control what I allow to get me down and I control what I allow to lift me
up. I have another car. A better car than the one I wrecked. I have a good job. I have friends. I don't care what other people are doing with what
they have. The people you think are happy are struggling far worse than you are. The people you think are down and out are happier than you will ever
know. Stop focusing on other people. Look at yourself and REJECT those negative thoughts that seek to bring you down.
You are only what you think you are if you act on what you think. Reject the negative. Embrace the positive.
