In this segment of Planet Love Match Radio, Jennifer Tapiero and Josh Nasar welcomed life coach and author Steve Truitt back into the studio to address an issue that we all deal with. Everyone has bad days, but how are you supposed to handle them?
“The secret that I’ve found is that I don’t always have to like my life to love it,” Steve explained. “…I just have learned to say, ‘bad days are bad days’ and I don’t have to fight it. Every time I tried to stop being unhappy or stop being sad or stop being depressed or lonely, that’s when I was more miserable because I was trying so hard to fight it and be happy. Some days I’m just going to be down and that’s life. Emotions exist and anger exists and fear, resentment and jealousy and everything else that you have. These are there for a reason. This is who we are. As soon as I stop trying to fix all those things and try to be happy, I just was happier. I still have really bad days, but they don’t have me.”
Try your best to stay positive and keep your sight focused on the big picture. Bad days are unfortunate, but life as a whole is a pretty wonderful thing. Steve encouraged people to stop and think about it on their worst day, life is still better than the alternative!
