“Someone should take out the garbage.”
“Someone needs to change the temperature.”
“Why can’t someone fix that?”
“If they really cared, someone would do something about it.”
It’s time to kill off ‘Someone’ and realize that someone is you … and me. It’s all too easy to blame the ubiquitous ‘Them’ and not take any initiative ourselves.
Ask yourself, “Is it in my power to do something about this?” If the answer is ‘yes’, even if it’s just something small, then do it. If the answer is ‘no’, then stop complaining and make the choice to focus on the positive.
Your mental health and all the people around you will thank you.
