Example text

This may be difficult if you have to work with them, or if you live with them, but it is possible. Don’t think that you can stay strong and positive and still hang around them, they are going to be poison to you, and you are not able to withstand it in your early stages. Don’t believe me? Think of it this way. When you are starting a new diet, or when you are trying to quit drinking, you are not going to go to the bar or to a buffet. You are not going to be hanging around with your friends that are all about that kind of life, and you are going to try to hang out with people that live more like those you want to live like.

Now some feel that is not fair, and they don’t want to accept this kind of thinking because it takes away from their control in life. That is a hard thing for some people to accept. They want to be in control, and if they can think that they are being punished for some reason, then they are the ones who brought it down on themselves. People like to be in control. It is hard to give up this control, because for many it makes them feel small and helpless, and like they are sitting on a time bomb that is about to go off and shower all kinds of bad things down on top of them.

There are times you think you can blame your unhappiness and their happiness on what they are doing or given, but then you realize there are those that may be unwell or dealing with tragedy and they are still happy. In fact, they may be dressed well, dressed poorly, rich, poor, struggling… who knows? Yet they always seem to be happy. It is almost as if you can’t bring them down even if you tried. Of course there are the other people in the world, too. Those that have everything handed to them, and have the most cushioned life that someone could ask for, yet nothing is ever good enough.
