PostSecret: Get Over It

This postcard from PostSecret showed up yesterday. I feel that it’s the key to eating healthy and taking the time to exercise.

PostSecret: Get Over It

It reads:

To all the people I’ve tried pleasing during my lifetime:

I am finally going to please myself.

If this makes you unhappy…


The truth is, you can’t make other people happy. Sure, there are things that you can do to please them, but their happiness depends on THEM. The ONLY person you can control on this planet is YOU. Concentrate on making yourself happy and the rest of the people around you will follow suit or struggle as they always have.

You have to take care of yourself FIRST before you can take care of anyone else.

PostSecret‘s beneficiary is the National Hopeline Network. It is a 24-hour hotline (1 (800) SUICIDE) for anyone who is thinking about suicide or knows someone who is considering it.
