Remove Expectations!!

by Newly Positive

My parents got divorced when I was very young. For years I blamed myself for his absence. Throughout my life I was constantly searching for people to confirm that I was smart, beautiful and desirable. This led to bad decisions with worse consequences.
Hitting rock bottom, I am greatful for good friends that have been living the positive thinking theory. I had to realise that the past is just that. There is no way you are going to change it. They taught me that I have to discard the past and focus on the future. I had to realise the experiances in my life are part of me but they are not who I am.
I have started removing expectations of others and focusing on me to make myself happy. Since I have started looking at things in this manner, colors are brighter, scenery is more beautiful and sounds are clearer. I am thankful to have such good friends to point me in the right direction. I am just beginning my journey of positive thinking and already I can see significant changes in my life.
