Misery is a Choice

The sad truth is that so many people are in a state of love, and not together with someone, and yet so many people are together and are not in love but trudging on the age of misery. Misery is almost always a choice of the mind that has other very available options, like ‘not to be miserable’! There are legions of miserable like Don Quixotes jousting with windmills and pretending that the trivia they obsess over gives meaning to their victimhood-centered lives.

Misery makes you a victim. Nobody of any race makes you choose to have unprotected sex and get pregnant at 16. Nobody makes you choose to have three kids by three different baby daddies. Nobody makes you flunk out of school. Nobody makes you spend money on partying instead of your rent. Nobody makes you assault a police officer. Nobody makes you rob a house and get a criminal record. It’s not oppression. It’s a sub-culture that says you can make every mistake in the world, but your screwed-up life is still someone else’s fault?! 

Misery loves company! The company the misery possessed would really want in their heart of hearts are positive people who make the choice to not be miserable, but why would ‘they’ want to be around someone who ‘cries in their soup’ and brings clouds into the room. ‘’Out, out brief candle’’ is part of a quote from William Shakespeare’s Macbeth …  Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and is heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.” Ring a bell?

Blaming all your troubles on anything or anyone is a disingenuous inversion of the affirmative side of life. If you don’t like how something in the world is, try to changing it, but don’t whine and cry  and talk about how terrible life is for you because you were born the wrong race or sex. Hold yourself to a higher standard than that. Look for the opportunities that often get missed because they require some work. Be a better person and stop lying to yourself about oppression in the least racist, most welcoming country in the history of humankind. 

Having a PhD in misery is returnable by making a choice. Let go of negative attachment memories that you lug around everyday in your life. More love energy will rise when the negative is let go of. Love is diluted where negativity is occupying the space. If you choose misery, be happy with your choice! If this is not your choice, drop all patterns that create it and start making new patterns! Open the doors of positivity and a new bliss will flow. You have a choice – deal with it, and don’t forget to smile!
