3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
One of the most liberating experiences of my life is to cast off shackles of Judeo-Christian dogma about who I "should" have a relationship with or be on good terms with, and instead base my relationships on where my positive points are recognized, respected and appreciated.
When you are focused on your own abilities and positive features, you naturally attract people who recognize and appreciate those abilities. It is I believe these people with whom it is best to cultivate relationships. To those who don't "get" you, dislike you or do not appreciate you, regardless of who they are, the attitude of fuck you is most liberating!
This attitude inevitably steers your life in a direction that is best for it. In places where you do not fit, you will leave or be forced out, or given space. You will then end up in places where you will thrive.
This attitude requires courage. In my case, I harnessed my anger. Instead of letting it rampage everywhere and hurt those who appreciate me, I turned it into an effective weapon of self-defence. Those who previously would have evoked fear or guilt in me now got my wrath - and they backed off! My environment and circles shifted, with negative influences getting thrown out and positive ones drawn in.
It has taken me all my life to learn this wisdom - I have never come across anyone who has ever taught it. I have learned it the hard way, from direct experience, trial-and-error. I will now for the rest of my life teach this important recipe for happiness and fulfilment - build your life around the people and places where your strengths are recognized, valued and appreciated, and cut yourself off from the negative like the cancer they are.
