Abbreviation “FML”; Why Does One Place Life on Trial?


 

The slang abbreviation “FML” (Fuck My Life) has always been trivial to me. It’s like putting life on trial before conviction and  justify “FML” over and over as if things will always stay the same.

As long as “FML” finds reasons to believe there’s truth to these statements, things in life remain the same. Whereas I’m a believer that we take the good in with the bad and ride through life embracing everything life has to offer. Life doesn’t come with a book of instructions and each of us must walk our own paths because it will be these choices we make that will define who we are.

Regardless of “FML” we’ll make choices and decisions throughout life, one where we may not shed lightly upon nor agree upon personal outcomes.

After all, “FML” simply will keep a person stuck in overdrive with lots of turbulence with such bleak future outcomes. Walking around saying “FML”, texting, messaging or perhaps a lens of opportunity to express “FML” live on Skype or web driven chat online services in real-time.

“FML” is like walking around with a pebble in one’s shoes expecting to never feel comfortable or things will always be the same. But if one were to take the pebble out of those shoes and walk through life with a little added cushion to the “FML” blows, life may bring comfort in style by removing the pebble and adding inserts to those shoes.

Life is a process of learning and opportunities to put forth knowledge. We can take those opportunities in life to either learn not to repeat, reason with solutions, seize or embrace those moments of truths, even when truths within may feel uncomfortable.

It is up to each of us to challenge those inner “FML” thoughts because even though “FML” may be the driving force in such beliefs, there are reasons to believe things in life can bring more positive insight, with more gradual achievements by setting inner, intuitive goals.
