There are two questions I get asked a lot:
1. How do you maintain such a positive attitude?
2. How do you keep from getting angry?
Two words come to mind: Perspective and Practice.
Perspective is something I gained through life experience and hard work.
Several years ago I was at a bottom emotionally. Life was just too hard, or so I thought at the time. I wanted to die; I was tired of trying, tired of failing. But something made me get up and try again; this time, with the desperation of a drowning man. If I didn’t find something… well I just had to find something. With the help of others, and a fearless moral inventory of myself and my past, I realized I did not treat myself well. I would not have treated someone I loved that way. I got honest, trusted people who had similar experiences, and allowed them to love me until I learned to love myself.
