Don’t wait around for things to happen, make them happen. I know it sounds cheesy, but your fucking life is yours and yours alone. No one else can make you live it.
Every single time you take time to have a pity party, make yourself take a step (even a small one) towards bettering yourself, your relationships, and your career.
Maybe it’s emailing an editor, maybe it’s talking to your boss asking for better assignments, maybe it’s telling your partner that they need to start pulling their weight in the relationship or you’re going to bail.
Whatever it is, don’t wait for things to happen to you. Get the fuck out there and make them happen yourself.
