Don’t try to change it if it’s not in your power

By: Julija Kaselyte

I’m not a person who easily takes “no” for an answer.

Usually, when it comes to work, I have to communicate with a lot of different personalities and things don’t always go smoothly.

However, I want everything to go splendidly, so no matter how much time it takes, I can spend the majority of it fixing things until everything is perfect.

It is a silly joke that the word “impossible” actually means “I’m possible”, but I honestly agree with it.

And here I am, always trying to do my best at work and school.

I expect nothing but the best and when things don’t work out the way I want them to, it’s beyond disappointing and upsetting.

If someone can do it, why can’t I, you know?

However, it causes a lot of stress and anxiety, so I constantly have to remind myself that it is not the end of the world.

“Just let it go.”

Of course, it’s easy to say, but hard to do.

Even so, if we think deeper, a

failure is not necessarily a bad thing.

Sounds absurd, but have you ever thought that you can actually learn a lot from unpleasant situations?

For example, not to repeat the same mistakes in the future.

We overthink things and let ourselves be overwhelmed in regards to a job or relationships.

It is easy to get attached to people and care about what they think.

Though at the end of the day, don’t let other human beings affect you when it comes to your life and what you want to do with it.

You are the master of your life.

What others think, say or do shouldn’t influence what you think, say or do.

I always talk about how one should have a goal and work hard to achieve it.

However, there still is a certain limit of energy we can utilize, and, sadly, a day has only 24 hours.

Or, some situations just simply don’t depend on us and we can’t change them.

We have to understand it and move on, and successful projects and new cool people will come along the way.
