Generational Curses

Generational curses are real. What is that, you ask? A generational curse is simply repeating something bad that your ancestors did. This can come in many forms. It can be the curse of mismanaging money or it can be a long line of women who had children in their teenage years who never married. We subconsciously pass down different traits to children and wonder why our children are having such a hard time. Or sometimes we don’t even realize that we are following in the wrong footsteps of our family members. Things do not have to be bad for you, but you have to want better for yourself! This requires work because sometimes we get comfortable in our mess. Wanting to have more and do better is a good trait to have, no matter how bad people try to make you feel for it. Wanting better is a sign of strength and just because your parents or grandparents didn’t have it doesn’t mean you can’t have it. You may want to be a homeowner, but feel bad because your family still lives in the hood. You may even want to move out of the country and explore “expat” living, but your family has never even owned a passport. Eventually you have to ask yourself one question: Am I living my life for myself or others? Hopefully you want to live it for yourself and see what else is out there. If you have family who purposely make you feel bad for wanting a better life, then they need help. Your family and friends should encourage you to be successful. Sometimes loved ones make slick remarks and say that you’re crazy for dreaming big, but DREAM BIG! And don’t just stop at dreaming…GET TO IT. It’s not fair to you to stay boxed in your comfort zone when you can break the curse of mediocrity. It’s time out for pleasing everyone but yourself. When you stay at that dead end job because that’s where your father worked, how will you cope with turning down a job offer at a better place? When you’re continually in debt and won’t do anything to fix your credit because your folks have bad credit as well, how will that help you grow? “The only thing that overcomes hard luck is hard work.” Are you willing to work to break the curse and get the ball rolling for positivity in your family for generations to come? The buck stops here and it stops NOW with you. BE SWEET.
