Have you ever noticed that the more someone complains about their life situation the more they stay in it and the people who have a cheerful disposition tend to have more of the same? Why is that? More important, what creates the difference? Is it the situation that determines how someone will react or is it the person who decides how to react to the situation? I believe it’s the latter.
Someone who comes from a place of being a victim believes that things happen to them and they have little or no control over what happens to them. They don’t see any connection between how they react and what life experiences come their way. Their viewpoint is that things happen to them and thus remain in a state of “what is.”
On the other hand, the person who looks for the positive aspect of the situation remains emotionally in a much better place and therefore attracts better life experiences. Other people respond in kind and therefore they get what they give.
You may think that isn’t possible but I’m sure you’ve been in a situation where two people experience the same event, one person reacts very irate and upset over it while the other one reacts rather calmly about it, same situation different reaction. What does this tell you? It says that you are the creator of your experiences. You can choose to be happy or choose to be sad. You can choose to be the victim or you can choose to take charge of your life. You have the free will to choose. Isn’t that awesome!
