I should be everything to everyone all of the time. It’s okay not to be everything, for everyone, all the time. Life should be fair and the way I want it to be. It’s okay. Life is not fair. I can stand it. It’s awful and terrible when things are not the way I want them to be. Life’s an adventure and I can stand it. What happens to me causes how I feel. The past is not a predictor of the future. I can stand this! I should look good to all people in order to be worthwhile. I love myself for who I am and for where I am at. I am great! Reverse Paranoia (Jack Canfield) This bad event is happening to prepare me for future events that are great.
