My PIP (don’t try to understand) introduced me to the catch 22 theory! English is not my first language and if you knew me you’d know literature wasn’t one of my favorite classes either, am rather a number person (#$%3). That is why when my cousin teased me on PDA(public display of affection), i thought it was a newly discovered disorder, bless my soul
Being 22 is not easy on me, am not sure about you! However am doing my best to resist getting trapped in the catch. I go by the words “The best-if not the only way to predict the future is to create it“
These words some how give me life, but the dilemma remains how do you create a future when you can’t get hold of the present?
Here is how am resisting in the best hope that it can help you too!!!
- Recognize you are entirely up to you, and that nothing you have is forever! Basically everything will return back to dust! So enjoy your time while you are still here,Above all else guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life (Proverbs 4:23)
- Love and Respect yourself: “No one’s comfort is more important than my peace of mind and well-being and no one can make me feel guilty about that” Repeat after me!
- Have a personality: “people pleaser” if you realize how quickly people forget the dead then you’d stop living to impress or to please. If it’s a NO say it like a queen, you owe no one an excuse, an apology or an explanation
I guess this will be enough for now!
