Home Car News 20 Signs Youre Doing Better Than You Think You Are Car News 20 Signs Youre Doing Better Than You Think You Are By admin - August 16, 2017 93 0 Youpaid the bills this month, and maybe even had extra to spend on non-necessities. It doesn’t matter how much you belabored the checks as they went out, the point is thatthey did, and you figured it out regardless. You question yourself. You doubt your life. You feel miserable some days. This means you’re still open to growth. This means you can be objective and self-aware. The best people go home at the end of the day and think: “or… maybe there’s another way.” You have a job. Forhowever many hours, at whatever rate, you are earning money that helps you eat something, sleep on something, wear something every day.It’s not failure if it doesn’t look the way you thought it would you’re valuing your independence and taking responsibility for yourself. You have time to dosomething you enjoy. Even if “what you enjoy” is sitting on the couch and ordering dinner and watching Netflix. You are not worried about where your next meal is coming from. There’s food in the fridge or pantry, and you have enough to actually pick and choose what you want to eat. You can eat because you enjoy it. It’s not a matter of sheer survival. You have one or two truly close friends. People worry about the quantity but eventually tend to realize the number of people you can claim to be in your tribe has no bearing on how much you feelintimacy, acceptance, community, or joy. At the end of the day, all we really want are a few close people who know us (and love us) no matter what. You could afford a subway ride, cup of coffee, or the gas in your car this morning. The smallest conveniences (and oftentimes, necessities) are not variables for you. You’re not the same person you were a year ago. You’re learning, and evolving, andcan identify the ways in which you’ve changed for better and worse. You have the time and means to do things beyond the bare minimum. You’ve maybe been to a concert in the last few years, you buy books for yourself, you could take a day trip to a neighboring city if you wanted you don’t have to work all hours of the dayto survive. You have a selection of clothing at your disposal. You aren’t worried about having a hat or gloves in a blizzard, you have cool clothes for the summer and something to wear to a wedding. You not only can shield and decorate your body, but can do so appropriately for a variety of circumstances. You can sense whatisn’tright in your life.The first and most crucial step is simply being aware. Being able to communicate to yourself: “something is not right, even though I am not yet sure what would feel better.” If you could talk to your younger self, you would be able so say:“We did it, we made it out, we survived that terrible thing.”So often people carry their past traumasinto their present lives, andif you want any proof that we carry who we were in who we are, all you need to do is see how you respond to your inner child hearing,from the person they became. You have a space of your own. It doesn’t even have to be a home or apartment (but that’s great if it is). All you need is a room, a corner, a desk, where you can create or rest at your discretion; where you govern who gets to be part of your weird little world, and to what capacity. It’s one of the few controls we can actually exert. You’ve lostrelationships. More important than the fact that you’ve simply had them in the first place is that you or your former partner chose not to settle. You opened yourself to the possibility of something else being out there. You’re interested in something.Whether it’s now how to live a happier life, maintain better relationships, reading or movies or sex or society or the axis on which the world spins, something intrigues you to explore it. You know how to take care of yourself.You know how many hours of sleep you need to feel okay the next day, who to turn to when you’re heartbroken, what you have fun doing,what todo when you don’t feel well,etc. You’re working toward a goal.Even if you’re exhausted and it feels miles away, you have a dream for yourself, however vague and malleable. But you’re not uncompromisingly set on anything for your future. Some of the happiest and best adjusted people are the ones who can make any situation an ideal, who are too immersed in the moment to intricately planand decidedly commit to any one specific outcome. You’ve been through some crap. You can look at challenges you currently face and compare them to ones you thought you’d never get over. You can reassure yourself through your own experience. Life did not get easier, you got smarter. Want more articles like this? Check out Brianna Wiest’s book here. For more raw, powerful writing follow Heart Catalog here.
