Changing Our Lives

We all want things to be better - for ourselves, for our families, for our friends, for our neighbors, for people everywhere.

But where does making things better start?

Your thoughts?

I think getting ahead, improving our lots in life is up to us personally

The first step is the hardest.

You can always be counted on to post something irrelevant to the topic being discussed

Thanks for not disappointing

Hello, my thoughts are it starts with the first step!

And yet your graphic indicates that there is no real problem - admitting that the problem is simply a delusion

Not exactly the topic

For a Hypochondriac admitting you don't have a problem is the first step.

Of course it is.

Not where the article was intended to go, but I guess you are right

where does making things better start?

It starts with ourselves.  One thing I learned a long time ago was that only I can make me happy.  Only I can open myself up to things getting better but I'm just too tired lately of being disappointed time and time again.  Right now I just want to be sad for me because I can’t help my son even though I know only he can help himself.  :0(

Staying strong and ready to help him once he is ready to help himself is a solid approach

I wish you both the best of luck

When you get to the age where "it's all over" no matter how old you are, it is possible to make a sea change in your life and find yourself on a whole new adventure (as did Bilbo Baggins in Lord of the Rings) and be able to discover a whole new world and happiness. I did it at the age of 69 by moving to the other side of the world.

That's great. Not many would be that adventurous.
