Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way, ask if you want to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future.
—Deepak Chopra (via lazyyogi)
And really, just stop saying “should” to yourself about your thoughts and feelings in any context. You feel how you feel. The things in your head are the things in your head. You can’t change either directly through sheer force of will. You can only change what you do. Stop beating yourself up for who and what you are right now–it isn’t productive. Focus on moving forward.
