Do you ever get angry at the universe? I do, especially right now. I feel like I can never get ahead and when I do, something comes along to bring me two steps back. I feel like I’m just a shitty person and the universe hates me because of my luck lately. I am not happy at all. All it is is work work work and no reward. I was trying to save to move to New Orleans but my transmission went out on the way back from a career fair and now my mom is down my throat to pay her back the $2000 to get it fixed. Now what? I have to get a serving job in addition to my 8-5 job. FCK! I am so ready to give up and stop believing in anything bc it isn’t working anyway. I am so tired of being hopeless and let down. This is crazy, man. What can I do to get out of this funk? I don’t do anything to receive such crap from life so I don’t know where all this is coming from. Please help. I am so close to giving up. All I want to do is move to New Orleans and enjoy life with my sweet boyfriend but I just feel like life is trying to keep me from that at all costs. I am tired of misery and worrying about money. Some days I just wish I didn’t wake up at all.September 22, 2014 at 6:49 pm #65390InkyParticipant
Tell The Universe “I Won” as you take a bus to New Orleans. Leave your car and belongings behind with your mother. Use a credit card to pay for the bus ticket. Figure the rest out when you are with your boyfriend. Then, when crap happens to you down there, smile at The Universe, wink, and say, “I still won” as you give your boyfriend a big smooch.September 23, 2014 at 4:09 am #65409
I don’t have a credit card. The credit companies keep denying me because I have so much student debt so there is that option.September 23, 2014 at 6:50 am #65417VicParticipant
You ever read the book “The Secret”? If not, I suggest you pick it up. It’s a great read and I re-read it every now and then.
The Universe will deliver what you focus on the most, good or bad. You can think all you want about how you DON’T want to have debt, you DON’T want this, you DON’T want that or you can focus on what you DO want, either way what you focus on is what It will deliver. It doesn’t see DO or DON’Ts it just gives you what you think of most frequently.
Do not think negative. Don’t think about what you’re trying to avoid or the things that stress you out. Just accept them as things that have happened and there’s nothing you can do but correct them with your actions NOW. Today and every day after that are the only times you can do something to create a better future. Give thanks every morning for another chance to work on your self and this world. Give thanks you have no idea how much good it can bring. While you’re bombarded by these troubling situations, do you think about how insignificant we are in the Universe? How small the Earth is compared to the rest of the galaxy, let alone how small humans are. Things are good/bad because of the labels we put on them, but they just happen to us. It’s not good or bad, it’s the Universe giving us what we think about.
I know it’s hard to have a positive outlook when all these things are happening but it’s the attention that you bring to them that welcomes more and more of these events to appear. Accept what happens, detach(emphasis on this) and live your life with a guided yet care less attitude. You need direction as you go through your life but try not to obsess about things that happen to you. If a bad situation appears yet again, try something different. Instead of bashing the Universe, think “The Universe is giving me signs on what I’m doing wrong” kinda like hinting what you need work on. You cannot take anything with you when you die. Only your soul.
Our souls know everything there is to know.. We just have to remember it through the experiences we deliberately put our selves through. Your thoughts will become your actions and those will become your experiences. Think positive, write down how a perfect day would do if you could have it every day and read it every morning. Just visualize what you WANT and eventually you will receive it.
Good luck to you and your endeavors!

Every day I would write one sentence about what I was happy or grateful for. “The sun is shining.” The next day write, “I have a boyfriend who loves me”. The day after write, “I live in a free country.” Every day reread what you wrote. Keep doing that. Pretty soon you will wake up, read five pages/five months of amazing things in your notebook, and start the day with a spring in your step.
It really works. I’ve done it. Just try!September 23, 2014 at 7:21 am #65421
Okay, i’m opening my journal now. thank you so much. you’ve been a huge help.
i just am so impatient and ready to get to the city that i love but all these setbacks made me very upset.September 23, 2014 at 7:41 am #65422
i just know i’m going to go back to my negative thinking in a matter of time though. this is so frustrating.September 23, 2014 at 8:17 am #65424VicParticipant
Don’t identify with your thoughts. They’re negative but it doesn’t mean they’re true. Try thinking aloud instead of in your head, quietly. If you think out loud you have a chance to correct your self and say “No, that’s not true! Thanks for the thought but I don’t need it” Not exactly like that but you get the gist of it. Just reject the negativity when it appears and focus on what you do have in your life; what you’re grateful for.May 21, 2018 at 7:46 am #208383Ocean LeeParticipant
This resonates with me so much. I am feeling like the Universe hates me too. First I had what was supposed to be a minor surgery but the doctor poked a hole in my brain but he didn’t know it. (I honestly think the hole happened when he stabbed scissors up my nose to remove the packing without looking and without warning me but the doctor who fixed the hole in my brain said that’s not possible.) Even though I called his office 6 times in 8 days, he refused to see me. He said I was being hysterical and needed to rest. I ended up with dry brain and brain droop. I had meningitis and my eye popped out 2mm. I tried to sue him to no avail since a CSF leak was a potential complication. Why wasn’t he held to the fact that he should have known that too? The eye specialist measured the eye pop out during my first visit. I called her in panic because I was trying to pop my ear and sucked my eye back in instead. She said she was out of the country and wouldn’t be back for 2 weeks but if it didn’t hurt it was fine. I saw her after she came back and the 2mm difference was gone. She then said I was imagining it to begin with and removed it from my chart. The nurse while I was in the hospital overdosed me. The nurse who replaced her was male he made negative sexual comments about my body. I complained and the hospital said it didn’t happen. I have PTSD which was majorly effected by all this. My work retaliated against me because I missed a month of work and had to work from home for 2 more months. I made a complaint to the EEOC but it is unlikely they will have consequences. I am still a wreck and I am beginning to think that what I was sure were mystical spiritual experiences were more likely mental illness. I worked so hard to believe I would get justice to no avail. When I wonder about bad things the universe delivers in a hot second. When I wonder about good things, nothing. I see the comments you received that said you just need more faith trust and pixie dust and I used to believe that so much. But after years of trying and decades of working hard to still struggle financially, it is all starting to sound like what Christian faith healers say – you just don’t believe enough. I put so much faith and visualization and work (I’m talking years) into winning the lottery but no dice. (Don’t judge me. If I can supposedly manifest healing for cancer, I can manifest a few freaking numbers being pulled, especially since I play the same ones every time.) I believe so much that I have a serious emotional breakdown when it doesn’t happen. For my mental health, I’ve stopped playing. I don’t know what to do. I am so very exhausted and tired. I am starting to lose faith in the gods and the universe. I don’t know if I want to be a part of either anymore even if they do exist. They seem so cruel to me now.
