A message is only as good as its delivery.
If given a message that is negative or critical it’s important that you include a methodology of how to fix the problem, or the message falls flat. It’s then only half a message, an incomplete phase that unfortunately can resonate within someone. It’s these messages that we receive that make a difference in how we perceive the world.
I am a critical person, not on those around me but myself. I am infinitely hard on myself, because of my belief that if I want something to change I have to be the catalyst for it. I found that I have been giving myself these unfinished messages, these incomplete statements of criticism. Stopping at the what I am doing wrong, and never getting to how to fix it.
In this state, life just gets heavier and becomes hard to be productive. Things that I have been working on for months become more involved when I can’t reach the expectation I desire. Habits I have form become weights that bind me. It’s in these times that I have to recollect the purpose which I am working. Positive changes shouldn’t feel like punishment, but when with a crossed message, it can feel grueling.
I realize that my posts have been concentrating on this negative aspect. These lessons I have been learning through blood, sweat, and tears are what spend the time to write. It’s then when I continue to struggle, that I give no closure to the problem, and the weight is placed once more on my shoulders. I continue to take the time to look inwardly to find other lessons I can learn, consequently never finishing the lessons that came before.
One or two of these things is something I can handle, but as the weight stacks I become lethargic. It’s this closure, a focus on the solution, rather than the problem that I need. The lesson the weight is to come to terms with the issues that I face, and allow myself leeway to finish what I have started.
What I need most is to finish my messages, allow myself to end on a high note. Giving myself a path to travel allows me some relief. So I will give myself these words, finish the day on a high note, and give myself closure to the problems that I face.
So I will end this with the message that I can make things better, change the way the messages comes across and continue to push forward into making these messages to create a brighter future for myself and those around me. After all, I am the catalyst of changing my fate.
