"Using the power of decision gives you the capacity to get past any excuse to change any and every part of your life in an instant."
Martyrdom is a cover story for not honoring the self. We direct fury and righteousness outward, when what is needed is a bit of breathing room and self-reflection. We cannot operate on all cylinders non-stop for days on end and not pay a price for it. And it's not anyone else's fault.
We do what we do because we choose to do it. We have to get real about that. We can change our pace, change our attitude, and change our life circumstances. The details of it all are up to us.
So let's stop blaming others for our self-imposed hardship. Let's take ownership of our limitations and be kind to our burned-out souls.
Martyrdom mode is a wake-up call for greater personal stewardship.
