“Someone told me love would all save us. But, how can that be? Look at what love gave us. A world full of killing and blood spilling. That world never came. And they say that a hero could save us. I’m not gonna stand here and wait.” -Nickleback, Hero
Are you waiting for someone to ask you “what’s wrong”?
Are you waiting for someone to call you and check to see if you’re okay?
Are you waiting for someone to defend your position?
Are you waiting for your boss, coworker, customer, employee, friend, or family member to notice how dissatified you are?
Here’s today’s two cents:
Everybody has problems and most people think their particular set of challenges are more difficult and pressing than everyone else’s. So, if you’re waiting for someone to place your problems at a higher priority than their own individual concerns, you’re playing the lotto; it will be amazing if you win, but the odds are not in your favor.
When we were children, all we had to do was cry and someone would come along to sort out our problems for us.
It’s still okay to cry, but the growing up part doesn’t happen until you stop waiting for someone to come rescue you.
If you need something, speak up. If you have a problem, ask for help. If you’re dissatisfied, file a complaint. If you want change, take initiative. If you want to get lucky, create your own chances. If you’re going to gamble on anything, gamble on yourself.
That’s my two cents.
