When things go bad, it’s easy to feel sorry for yourself.
It’s easy to ask, “Why me?” But there’s absolutely no value in this. When you feel sorry for yourself, others don’t feel sorry for you. Instead, they see you as weak. They resent you and want to either avoid you or crush you completely. The more you feel sorry for yourself in life, the more people will take advantage of you. You’ll be taken advantage of over and over until you’re swimming in a swamp of self-pity, alone and completely helpless. The only way to avoid this fate is to start standing up for yourself and start channeling your emotions in a more productive manner. Here’s how.
