How To Change Your Perspective On Life

How To Change Your Perspective On Life

Sometimes, you need to look for the good instead of waiting for it to find you.


Recently, I have been struggling to find the positives in life. When you are surrounded by stress, it can be hard to have a good attitude. However, I know that I am not alone and millions of people across the world feel similar. Here are some tips that I have used to help me live a better life.

1. Stop being pessimistic

I know, it is hard to ignore the negatives in your life when they seem to always come when you do not need them to. I will say, however, that once I decided to only look for the good, I started to feel better about my life. I started stressing less, eating better, and even felt more motivated to do simple activities such as going to the gym. Trust me, this may seem tough but it will help turn your life around!

2. Only you can change your life

Again, this tip may seem vague or difficult to complete. This is actually one of the tips that made a significant impact on my life, though. For example, this past week I have had so many tests and have gotten bad grades on a few quizzes. I seemed to only point out everything that was wrong with my life but was not doing anything to fix it. However, one day I decided to focus on being happy and not paying too much attention to everything negative. I put a smile on my face, took a deep breath, and I tackled all of the problems. I performed better at work, was able to study more effectively, and just overall felt better. This is key to being more productive and improving your mental health.

3. Take a break

If you are severely struggling with what is happening around you, take a while to unplug. What I mean by unplugging is to turn off your phone, take a nap, watch a movie, or whatever helps you take a mental break. Sometimes, you are most productive with a clear mind going into your tasks. Once you have taken a mental break, you can go back to dealing with the problems. This has helped me whenever I am stressed and need a break. Plus, once you complete your tasks, you will feel so much better about your life!

4. Introduce new people into your life, and let go of those who don't support you

This may be the most difficult tip I have on my list. However, I think this could be one of the most effective ones. Yes, it is hard to let go of people that you may have grown close too, but if they are toxic to you then you need to let them go. To clarify, what I mean by someone being toxic is they are either introducing you to unhealthy habits or they are not supporting you as a person. You may have a few people in your life that you may think are your friends, but they could betray you in a heartbeat or move onto the next person. Ideally, you want to find friends that are loyal and want to be around you. Remember, you cannot force anyone to be your friend, but you can find people that want to be your friend.

I hope these tips help you have a better perspective on life. Sometimes, life hits you with curveballs that you never would have expected, but we need to identify the situation and find a way to turn it around quickly. Happy person, happy life.

18 Bible Verses That Prove God Would NOT Be 'Pro-Life'

Stop using the Bible as an excuse to take away women's rights.


"Abortion is WRONG because God (the highest authority) says so! Not because I say so, or "religious" people say so or the government says so...because the CREATOR OF ALL HUMAN LIFE SAYS SO."

This argument is bullshit and I'm sick of hearing it, because it just isn't true. All these Christians claim that the Bible and God says that abortion is wrong, and it's clear they've never read the Bible. Have you ever seen them use a biblical verse to validate their claims? Yeah, me neither. And you know why? BECAUSE THE BIBLE IS NOT PRO-LIFE. They pick and choose vague verses to attempt to back up these ridiculous claims, completely ignoring the damning evidence that the Bible, and therefore God, actually supports child murder, infanticide, and abortion.

Unlike pro-lifers, I'll actually provide some evidence:

1. Numbers 31:17 "Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him"

2. Deuteronomy 2:34 "And we took all his cities at that time, and utterly destroyed the men, and the women, and the little ones, of every city, we left none to remain"

3. Deuteronomy 28:53 "And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters, which the Lord thy God hath given thee, in the seige, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee"

4. 1 Samuel 15:3 "Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass"

5. Isaiah 13:16 "Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished"

6. Isaiah 13:18 "Their bows also shall dash the young men to pieces; and they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eyes shall not spare children"

7. Ezekiel 9:6 "Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house"

8. Hosea 9:14 "Give them, O Lord: what wilt thou give? give them a miscarrying womb and dry breasts"

9. Hosea 13:16 "Samaria shall become desolate; for she hath rebelled against her God: they shall fall by the sword: their infants shall be dashed in pieces, and their women with child shall be ripped up"

10. 2 Kings 2:24 "And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the Lord. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them"

11. Psalm 137:9 "Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones"

12. Numbers 5:21 "-here the priest is to put the woman under his curse- "may the Lord cause you to become a curse among your people when he makes your womb miscarry and your abdomen swell"

13. Hosea 9:16 "Ephraim is smitten, their root is dried up, they shall bear no fruit: yea, though they bring forth, yet will I slay even the beloved fruit of their womb"

14. Psalm 135:8 "He it was who struck down the firstborn of Egypt, both of man and of beast;"

15. Psalm 136:10 "-to him who struck down the firstborn of Egypt His love endures forever"

16. 2 Kings 6:28-29 "And the king said unto her, What aileth thee? And she answered, This woman said unto me, Give thy son, that we may eat him to day, and we will eat my son to morrow.So we boiled by son, and did eat him: and I said unto her on the next day, Give thy son, that we may eat him: and she hath hid her son"

17. Leviticus 26:29 "And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat"

18. Jeremiah 11:22 "Therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts, Behold, I will punish them: the young men shall die by the sword; their sons and their daughters shall die by famine:"

Stop using your religion to try and push propoganda that "God says abortion is wrong because it kills innocent children." Clearly your God doesn't care about killing children. There is more than enough proof that the Bible and God are NOT pro-life. Stop acting like you're good Christians upholding the values of God when you clearly haven't picked up the Bible and actually read it. God doesn't agree with your backwards thinking. Maybe try do your research before spewing your religious bullshit to try and take away women's rights.
