It is so rare that someone is able to overcome addiction without help that it is almost without precedent. Yet with help, it is entirely possible and many people have overcome their addictions to chemicals and/or behaviors with the help of others.
I like to think this is quite intuitive. If you have enough conversations with people in your life, over time you should be able to tell if someone is being deceitful just from the way they act.
Ways I can tell include:
As per Law of Attraction, there are only 3 steps to get what you want in life – Ask, Believe & Receive. You should do all 3 steps every single day… until you achieve what you want.
- Ask the universe – by setting goals, by writing down your goals on a sheet of paper, by visualizing etc.
- Believe in yourself & the universe – by taking logical steps (action) towards your goals, by behaving in a way like you’ve already achieved your goal (faking it until making it).
- Receive from the universe – You must allow yourself to receive from the universe.
The times when I have felt I am missing out have been the times when I have not been happy with myself or what I’m doing.
Here are some things that look really fun but that I would not be missing out on because I don’t find them fun:
1) Earth is in danger of being invaded by an alien civilization. As our recently acquired capability to generate sustainable abundance, and especially the abundance of space resources, demonstrates, alien civilizations will find only one thing uniquely valuable about Earth: our human cultures. (They could take a few hundred specimens of any organism and have a breeding population. No need for invasion of Earth itself to do this.) Those cultures would, of course, be destroyed by any heavy-handed interference. So, if ETs exist, I expect they may be quietly observing us right now. We would provide some of the most fascinating exo-anthropology available.
We can blame everyone including our parents, but the truth is that self-esteem issues are about… the self. We are responsible for our self-esteem, which is how much we value of ourselves.
Low self-esteem is caused by a lack of:
By looking at people your age who have achieved less than you have!
The above was just meant as a joke, if you haven’t realized it already!
Now, to give the real answer, I will try to present my thoughts as methodically and clearly as I can.
Growing up I’ve never had as much confidence as I would like. I think I used to compensate for it by being over the top loud… Something I still do.
I could feel it.
There was an odd, ineffable tension between my boyfriend and this woman we often ran into.
I know you will understand when I tell you it was eating at me.
One night I worked up the courage to ask him if there was any history between them.
A friend shared this with me few days ago and I’d like to share with you too:
The first day of school our professor introduced himself and challenged us to get to know someone we didn’t already know. I stood up to look around when a gentle hand touched my shoulder. I turned around to find a wrinkled, little old lady beaming up at me with a smile that lit up her entire being, she said, “Hi, handsome. My name is Rose. I’m eighty-seven years old. Can I give you a hug?” I laughed and enthusiastically responded, “Of course you may!” and she gave me a giant squeeze. “Why are you in college at such a young, innocent age?” I asked.
