Im not gonna say it’s an easy road, but it can be done, overcoming failure. We have all experienced lapses in judgment, when our attitudes positive, and egos are high, we sometimes tend to make bad decisions. Go with the flow, but not at your own expense. Socialization is supposed to benefit you, not hurt you in the long run, its not your friends, that are to blame, its your time management skills. Its important to keep a balance in life, spending time with family, working, and making time for friendships along the way. Friendships are important, psychologytoday.com, states that: “Friendships help to improve our happiness, confidence, worth, and coping while giving us a sense of belonging.” However, not all friendships last, and sometimes when we are going through difficult times, “Friendships may dwindle due to a difference in investment of time and energy.”  This can be depressing, trust that those who are your real friends, will be there for you in the years to come, some of the best friendships always pick up from where they left off, that’s how you know who your real friends are. No one wants to be the rehab friend, or the friend that gets hospitalized for being bipolar, I was one of them. Although I may have experienced a lot of hardships in life, I’ve always been able to maintain a positive attitude toward self and others, that is primarily how I have been able to overcome hardships, and setbacks in life. Keep your career going, and if one thing does not work out, keep going and find something else to do. According to Mark Manson in The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, “failures … are what lead to a better understanding of whats necessary to be successful.”  Furthermore he states that, “acceptance of one’s negative experience is itself a positive experience” , at the time you may be worried what others think as you are going through a difficult time, but chances are people are more concerned with their own lives, and what your going though is nothing more than a blurb in conversations about you, nothing really to worry about. Have some self control, its not all about you, people care more than you think, and while you may be feeling negative, never assume that other are feeling similarly negative toward you or speaking badly of you and your hardships. Everyone has their own lives. People root more than you think.
