Fuck happiness! Forget feeling good and focus on being better by Consciousnesses

Profanity Alert I appreciate many and various perspectives, as I have only recently begun to observe beyond my own. Take what you can use and dump the rest

Care, Bliss and the Universe

The difference between a good life and a bad life is how well you walk through the fire.” ~Carl Jung

Fuck positivity. Fuck feelings. Fuck trying to make yourself feel good all the time. Focus instead on becoming a better version of yourself. Focus on action. Better yet, be proactive. It’s less about feeling positive and more about positive action. Even then, it’s less about being great and more about being better. Indeed.

I could have done without the profanity but the message is a great one. Thank you for posting this!

      1. Yes, I am so smart! How are you? I’m here very secretly, away from my husband’s eyes to my shame, and just needing desperately to write and connect in an attempt to diminish the daily hurt of the consequences of falling on love here, like an idiot and now being heartbroken but writing, I think, better than ever.
        Phew….

        I’m a bit of a mess but still Charming and irresistible 💋
