You’ve a choice

If you are facing a setback –

Something out of your control

You don’t know how to deal with it

You feel helpless

When things get tough

Just remind yourself –

You have a choice

You can surrender or you can use it to grow

Most of the times

When giving in seems like the natural thing to do

At that time

Even reminding yourself

That you can choose otherwise

You have control

Over your actions

You can emerge stronger through this

Helps you actually gain control

And emerge like phoenix

Right thing

Sometimes you are the bad guy
Sometimes you hurt others
Sometimes you act in a rude way

When you realise it was your fault,
What do you do?

You feel the urge to blame others
You feel the urge to deny everything
You feel the urge to argue and fight

But in those moments
You deep down know
It was your doing

Instead of trying to cover it and protect your “ego”
Take some time to reflect

To see where you went wrong,
To understand why you did what you did

And finally

Accept your doing and apologise and improve henceforth

Personal development is hard, but that’s what counts

Sometimes the best thing you can do is accept the responsibility for your actions. Even if you feel embarrassed for a while, you feel a weight of “not apologising” lifted from your heart. That matters in the long run….
