I avoid self-pity
I accept my life. When things go wrong, I stay strong. I avoid dissolving into a puddle of tears or feeling sorry for myself. I avoid anxiety and additional stress.
I understand that I am responsible for my actions.
When I make a mistake, I accept the responsibility and the consequences. I do what I can to correct the situation or make amends, learn what I can from the error, and then move on without worrying about it.
I am in control of my emotions. I reject the idea that I am a victim. I avoid negative thoughts and feelings and focus on the positive aspects of any situation.
When I encounter a challenge, I remind myself that such obstacles are a normal part of life, and get busy seeking a solution. I know that I am a strong individual who is capable of overcoming obstacles.
I accept my circumstances – whatever they may be.
I avoid wallowing in self-pity if things go awry. Feeling sorry for myself is a downward spiral, and makes everything seem worse than it really is.
Likewise, I avoid seeking company for my misery. Instead of having a pity party, I take action to get past hard times on my own and move forward toward a brighter future.
Today, I avoid self-pity by focusing on the positive things in my life. I say thank you for everything the universe provides me. In return, I then receive even more great things to be thankful for.
