Question:How do you deal with good changes?

I am always having bad things happen to me and I am a single mother. well now good things are always happening to me but I make them turn bad cause that is what I am use to. How do I stop that and just relax and enjoy my new life with good things happen and going the right way?

Have you ever heard of a song that says;
"Some days are diamonds, and
Some days are Stone"?

Anyway, in order to cope with each and every day,
you need GOD in your life. I am talking about Jehovah,
GOD! There is NO other god. Put Jehovah GOD
first in your life, and HE will give you the desires of
your heart!

Sometimes the answer is very simple: Start saying "Thank you." Very powerful words. Watch what happens.

OneMomma I used to be the same way- If something wasn't wrong with my life I made it that way! It's hard to "not" have to deal with contraversy and drama when that's all you know. I had to actually stop myself and take a step back and remember that I could not always control things and not to take it personal. Now when I think I'm going to sabotage myself I have to take a step forward and think of all the things that used to go wrong and remember all the work it took me to make things right and how I didn't have enough time in my life for it anymore. I also think how lucky we are. We live in a world where things are wonderful if you stop and look at them. Life is good. Take a breath and always remember that.
