Plain and simple; the life we live is not the same as our life situation.
That may come across as contradictory so let me break this down.
We’re married, we’re divorced, we lost our job, we were abused, we won the lottery, we have a beautiful family of 8, or whatever else we can possibly think of to create a picture of our own or someone else’s “life”. These are descriptions that some of us may use as pieces that come together to create what makes up our “life”.
However, only our life situation is something that can be described.
And often you’ll hear people say “I hate my life”, “my life sucks”, “fuck my life”. But what we should be saying if we do feel the need to express some frustration with our current state is; “I hate my life situation right now”.
Life is not something that can be described and certainly not ever a thing we should hate.
Because cut and dry, life is life and it cannot be anything except for…. life. Nothing more and nothing less than the beautiful sensation of energy coursing through our bodies. No matter what is happening in our life situation at this current moment, our life is still just as strong and beautiful as it ever will be.
Life is untouched by circumstance.
You can be 5 million dollars in debt, going through a terrible divorce and have a dozen of friends that have broken your trust… but magically you can still have a wonderful, beautiful, life. You are alive and that is the magic that cannot be altered for if it is, we are dead…. and that would be a whole other issue wouldn’t it lol?
It absolutely breaks my heart to hear people misuse these two very different phrases. Especially when the people using phrases like “I hate my life” are young children.
Next time you hear someone else use this phrase or you catch yourself about to say it out of a bad habit, remind them, or yourself that you may hate your life situation right now, but you love the life that you get to live each day.
The beautiful thing about hating a life situation is that you can change them in most cases or if not, at least change the attitude you have towards them.
Now that’s important. Spread some light today.
