Suffering or Freedom?

I choose to free myself by taking responsibility.
I no longer need to complain when I am willing to change.
I free myself to see myself and make beneficial choices.
I change my mind easily and choose for win-win solutions.

Suffering or Freedom?

Are you staying too long?
Are you waiting for someone else to change?
Are you wishing for a miracle?
Are you attached to being right

Some believe they have no choice.
Some simply are too depressed to go.
Some are waiting on another to do the work.
Some are simply to stuck to see a way out.

If you believe that suffering is a part of life, you may feel comfortable.
If you are afraid of losing everything you value, you may value the choice to stay.
If you are dependent on the person or the house or job, you may be afraid to let go.
If you just want to complain, criticize and be long-suffering, you may enjoy where you are.

There is no one to blame.
There is no reason to complain.
There is nothing to do, accept.
Get up and leave.

Animals know they are free.
People believe they are trapped.
Animals choose what is good for them.
People choose to stay in familiar stuckness.

Frogs put into a hot pot of water will jump out.
People may make it up to be their karma or destiny.
Frogs put into a cold pot when gradually turned up, will cook to death.
Humans may make it up to be good, until its too late.

When we know we are free, we must take responsibility.
Our responsibility can be to stay to protect and provide for others.
When we know we are free, we can be afraid of taking care of ourselves and making a change.
Taking care of ourselves may be to leave or to stay and stop complaining.

Being grateful can be a simple choice to appreciate what we have and where we are.
Being grateful can be tolerant of behaviors and personalities unlike our own.
Being grateful can be to recognize we have made our own choice and choose to make the best of it.
Being grateful can be to forgive the mistake we have made and to forgive others’ mistakes as well.

Is it time to change your mind or change your choices?
Is it yours to take full responsibility for learning the hard way?
It is your choice to suffer or be free.
It is your choice to take full responsibility.

Loving you,
Betty Lue
