Change or Accept It

Is there something in your life that you really hate? We all have pet peeves, but that is not what I am referring to.

Do you have something that you hate so much that it is harming you physically and/or mentally? The most common examples are your job, your family, your school, or your so called friends?

If you do, then change it! Thatís right. Change whatever you dislike. Most people are so riled up inside that they forget that they can do something about whatever is causing them grief.

For instance, if a family member is causing you stress, then stop talking to them as much or move. If school is affecting your health, then you are probably studying the wrong major. If your friends are annoying or worse, then you need to find new friends or at least stop hanging around your old so called friends.

Unfortunately, it is not always possible to change what you dislike. This is when you have to accept whatever that you cannot change. At least until you can change it.

In summary, change whatever you cannot accept, or accept whatever you cannot change. At the very least, accept it until you can change it.
