Your situation, is your fault.
Hold. The. Phone.
Now I am NOT saying that bad things didn’t happen to you. And these bad things were not caused by other people.
I AM saying that nobody is keeping you where you are.
You can heal. You can recover. You can change. You can move to a new state. You can switch jobs. You can start over. You can talk to someone.
There is hope.
Because if none of that is possible, well, you have no control of your own life – and there can never be a desire of tomorrow.
Understand: Free-will has enormous implications.
“If your situation is the fault of anything or anyone else,” Jones had told him, “there is very little hope and absolutely zero power over your own life. “Responsibility is about hope and control. And, Baker,” Jones asked, “who doesn’t want hope for a greater future that their choices control? You have been granted free will, son. You just didn’t know it. At this very moment you are beginning a brand-new race. Now is the time for you to seek wisdom like you would look for a lost child or buried treasure. Don’t be like average people. Most folks look for their car keys with more energy than they search for the wisdom that can change their lives.
