“I hope you get the courage to move on and do what is good for you,” says Amy on How to Leave Your Husband . “Don’t hate the men in your lives – they did not force you to get married or have children or be a stay at home mum. Take responsibility for your lives, until you do just that you will always blame everyone else.”
Sometimes “taking responsibility for your life” means “stop being a loser and turn your life around!”
One of my favorite books on living better (and not being a loser) is Refuse to Choose! A Revolutionary Program for Doing Everything That You Love by one of my favorite authors, Barbara Sher. Check it out.
Tips for Turning Your Life Around
“Most times, we women want to please everyone, we want to have kids to please our men, we want to be good mothers to our kids, but we never think of pleasing ourselves,” says Amy on my article about leaving your husband. “We all have one life to live, so live it well. Time will never come back, so if you want that Masters degree, go ahead! If you wanted to learn French or Italian, then do it! If you want to live in Spain – start packing. It’s your life.”
It’s your life, my friends. And you can stop hanging out with losers, stop being a loser, and turn your life around.
Remember that time doesn’t just fly – it’s a speeding bullet
I bet you often marvel at how fast time passes. Where did the week go? The month? The years? The first way to take responsibility for your life and stop being a loser is to remember you’ll be 80 years old before you know it – and you’re the only one who can guarantee an exciting, fulfilled life. You won’t succeed at everything you do, but you can take risks and use every moment of life that God gives you.
Figure out what kind of life you want to look back on
When I was 28 years old, I sat on a bar stool in my sister’s kitchen and said, “I want to live a BIG life! I want to reach age 90 and look back on my life and be amazed at what I did!” So, I moved to Africa and taught at an American high school there for three years. I’ve started businesses, tackled a freelance writing career, got married, went into counseling for a year before I got married to deal with my issues, and am now hiring writers for my Quips and Tips blogs! And we travel every year. This is the kind of life I want to look back on…I want to have tried tons of new things, seen lots of new places. I don’t want to feel like a loser.

Stop blaming other people for your problems

You create the situation you’re in, my friend. Instead of blaming other people for your problems, you need to take responsibility for your life by taking action. Even small, “baby steps” actions make a HUGE difference in helping you achieve your goals!
