How to be Better

Recently I’ve felt majorly overwhelmed and whenever I stall out like this I can only really contemplate how to be less of a fuckwit. There are a lot of things I could stop doing, but what are some things that I can do actively that’ll help in reaching the goals I have? This isn't a self help book; this is just me trying to figure out how I can be the better me. It may be more for me, but hopefully my delusional rambling can help at least one person other than me get where they’re trying to. So here are a few tips on how to be better.

1. STRIVE FOR MORE - Never let yourself settle because you can always get farther ahead. Now putting in the work is the hard part and where most people fall off, concepts are a lot of fun but actually working and creating in some capacity is the only way to achieve whatever it is you want. This doesn’t necessarily mean by breaking your back at a 9-5 until you have enough savings or taking out loans to enroll in college classes you may hate, as long as you’re progressing and learning from each and every step you take, you’re moving in the right direction.

2. UNDERSTAND YOUR FAULTS - Everyone falls short in some way, some more than others, but our strengths and weaknesses are individual and only you can really know where you really can’t help but fuck up. As soon as you can really understand your shortcomings the quicker you can adapt and become less likely to majorly screw up. Our faults don’t mean anything other than we’re human, so the quicker you stop letting your ego tell you you’re something you're not the closer you’ll be to really progressing as a person.

3. MOVE ON - Grudges are one of the only problems completely dependent on you. Your life is controlled by so many things that are out of your power so you should take control of what you can. You’re the only thing keeping you from moving on. Obviously it can be hard, but the cathartic reward and release of really moving on is more rewarding than the problem at hand and will lead to you being a more well rounded person. You can cut ties, make up, or do any number of things really but holding back from closure only results in an ever stacking pile of guilt, regret, pain, and sorrow.

I don’t know how much of this will actually make sense to anyone other than myself, but I really think these are 3 small things that can play a major role in how you perceive yourself, how others perceive you, and how you use those perceptions to keep improving yourself. I’m not a shrink so don't think I know anything about anything, but this is still what i’ve considered my big three.
