I also speak about spirituality from a Christian-centric point of view. I have a Master's Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling (CMHC), am MBTI-Certified and am a full-time Instructor.
If today is a particularly rough day for you today, just remember - you can get through today.
If your boss is getting on your nerves so badly that you want to quit, remember - you can get through today.
If you feel like your marriage is so bad that you are contemplating divorce, remember - you can get through today.
If the bills are pressing in on you and you're worried about losing your home, remember - you can get through today.
If the worst happens and you receive a foreclosure notice, repossession paperwork or a pink slip at work, remember - you can STILL get through today.
So much of life has to be taken one day at a time. And even when the worst happens, most of us still find the will to succeed. How many paraplegics ever thought they'd continue to enjoy life after experiencing a horrible accident? What man or woman ever believed they'd be just as happy single as they were when they were married? And what person who ever filed for bankruptcy could anticipate the joy they'd find in learning (finally) how to manage their finances?
No matter what your circumstances today - remember - YOU CAN GET THROUGH TODAY!!
There is one sure guarantee in life (other than taxes and death) - you will always have to deal with some form of criticism.
Funnily enough, no matter who you are or whether your net effect is negative or positive, someone will always have something critical to say about you. You can point out to some soul that you have successfully run a business for 10 or 15 years and all they'll say is that you neglected your children. You can be the best homemaker in the world, but some good friend will remind you that you never finished college. Or you can graduate summa cum laude and all your mom can say is that you've never had a successful relationship.
Your absolute best will still never be enough to satisfy some people. So what do you do? Don't be afraid to face criticism - expect it and then deflect it. It truly doesn't matter what someone else thinks about you unless you allow it to be important. It is of course a good idea to listen when someone has constructive criticism (i.e., advice that points out something you do wrong and what you can do to correct it), but most criticism isn't like that at all. Most of the time, it is invasive, unwelcome and has serious negative overtones.
Don't be afraid of criticism, but also don't allow someone else's opinion to overly influence how you choose to live your life. Be you - no matter what!
