Let me ask you a question:

What is one thing you think you could begin doing to be a better person than you are right now?

      • I’m stuck mentally I suppose. I lost my passion as well as drive a very long time ago. Six years to be exact. My dad passed away then. Along came cancer an emotionally abusive relationship blah blah blah. I’ve found it hard to let go and move forward. I’m stuck in the sense I want my life back. I want to work again. I want to be productive and have a purpose. I want to make a difference. Yet I have no idea what my purpose is.

      • I was in the same place about 4 years ago. I figured out my passion by determining what wasn’t my passion. And to do that I tried doing a whole lot of stuff and went through a process of elimination. I got to do a lot of new things, volunteered, did some public speaking, started a blog, started shooting video, started traveling. And my passions kind of presented themselves.

    • Glad you like the question! Evelina came up with it. Doubt will always be a haunting factor of life. Negativity on the other hand is controllable. Both are good things to confront and gain control over. 🙂

  1. Yes, a very good question. My not so brief answer is: remove, depression, anxiety, social phobia, doubts, insecurity and find the girl I was before the world tried to destroy me.
    My apologies D, you said one thing. OOPS! I did it again. lol

  2. Stop letting the small things in life wind me up, creating scenarios around them and then looking for a row. I would be a better person to be around. Just in case your thinking I’m a psychopath, this is on,y a rare thing lol. 😀

    • I think it is fairly normal to be concerned with what others think. As a matter of fact if someone tells you they don’t, then they are lying. How others view us is an important part of maintaining and developing self-awareness. I think the important thing is to gauge how much it affects your life.

  3. To be a better person? – Hmmm – Am I not sufficiently self-critical such that nothing springs immediately to mind where I’m falling short of being as good a person as I think I ought to be? This, I will need to think about. Maybe I need to run more guilt trips on myself.

  4. I’d have to say just pay more attention to what is happening around me in the present moment. Quit trying to plan ahead so much. Get off my phone. Look around at the people around me now, and pay attention to them intently.

  5. It depends on how you define ‘better’. Sounds like a consultant response, doesn’t it. In my job, I’m trying to be more truthful. That doesn’t mean I’ve been dishonest, but I have accepted work of lesser quality and then have fixed it myself so I didn’t upset the person that submitted it. I’m starting to return things to them so they can learn and I can reduce stress. At home, more family time. I’m becoming very protective of family time and not letting other commitments get in the way. I used to be the guy that would help everyone with their computers and do all kinds of favors on weekends, and I’m limiting those so I can do things with my wife and daughter.

  6. Reblogged this on Annas Art – FärgaregårdsAnna and commented:
    Danny’s questions always makes me think. I don´t always have wise answers, but that is not the point either. The idea with questions like this one is to make us think, not find the right answer. I can always be a better person, there´s always more to do. Life is an ongoing project of improvement, I think. Danny´s post is also an example of a post where you should read the comments and not only the post it self. It´s in the comments the post grow in its content.

  7. One thing I’m trying to do is stop trying to please everyone. That sounds like a bad answer to how to be a better person, but honestly it made me miserable and grumpy. Miserable, grumpy people aren’t typically very pleasing. I’m finding I’m beginning to be much happier now that I’m not internalizing everyone’s criticisms as much.

  8. Stop being so hard on myself. I have a bone disease and on disability, some days I feel oknsome day’s not so ok. And then I get frustrated because I can’t do all the things I used to do that I loved & didn’t love. Miss hiking and washing walls for example.
