Reading time: 3min 20secs

Where is superwoman today, eh? Chicago. Chi-Town. Windy City. Deep dish pizza. Mm. What up everyone? It's your girl Superwoman, and I'm losing my voice, but that's not the point. Today's video is gonna be a little bit different. It's probably not going to be funny, but I can guarantee you, it's gonna be straight from my heart. Now I've been having a really tough time recently. I'm in the middle of my world tour, and it has been mentally, emotionally, and physically overwhelming. As a result, I'm finding myself unhappy sometimes, A-k-a right now. And because I'm a pretty spiritual person, I've decided to analyze my feelings, not only in hopes of making you maybe feel better, but kinda to make myself feel better too, and hopefully by the end of this video we can both smile together. Now everything I'm about to say is based on my own experiences and things I've learned, and I feel like I'm making this video to just kinda remind myself. So welcome to five things we do to make ourselves unhappy. I think that's the title. Was that the title? It's something like that. Are you ready? Because it's honesty hour.

NUMBER 1: You Expect to Control People and Situations

Now, I'm gonna be real with you. I'll be the first to say, I'm a huge control freak. Like I'm on tour right now, and every time I'm onstage, I want to control everything that's happening. And even in my personal life, I find myself expecting people to do certain things. But what we need to remember, even though it's really hard to accept, is that we will never control people and situations. For example, if I'm on stage and the microphone stops working, nothing I do can fix it that. The only thing I can control in that situation is how I react, so I can either (a) get pissed off and throw the microphone at someone's head, or (b), make a joke about it and hope people laugh. And the same goes with people. If we could control people, let's be real, you'd be dating your celebrity crush and be living on a yacht. Are you living on a yacht? I don't think so. And if you were living on a yacht, then got damn it–the reality is you will never control people and what they do, no matter how hard you try, and it's okay to have expectations of people, but understand if you have expectations, people will not always fulfill them, and there's nooooothing you can do about it. The only thing you'll ever be able to control in this world is how you react to shit, so the key is to react like a fucking boss.

NUMBER 2: Compare yourself to others

Now I feel like in today's day and age this is mostly the fault of social media, because it's so easy through Facebook to envy everybody else, but what you need to remember is that we as humans have the tendency to compare people's highlight reel to our blooper reel, because no one's life is as wonderful as it seems on social media, and how do I know this? Because my life is not nearly as wonderful as my Instagram makes it seem, okay? I know I put seven filters on every picture, and so do you, and so does everybody else. Everyone has their own path because everyone is different, and in a world where there are seven billion people, it's stupid to think that everyone's going to get from A to B while using the same road. It's just not going to happen, not to mention, a lot of people aren't even trying to get B, they're over there chilling on Q. Look how many people are on this planet, everyone is so different, where it doesn't even make sense to compare each other. I suck at things, and I'm good at some things. You suck at some things, and you're good at some things. This is everyone's story.

NUMBER 3: View mistakes and hard times negatively

This gonna be some real talk! How do you know not to touch the stove when it's on? Chances are when you were younger you burnt yourself a few times and now you know if you touch it, it's going to hurt. But how would you know that if you didn't burn yourself in the first place? As humans, we learn through mistakes. How do you know how to walk? Because when you were a toddler you fell on your butt a couple hundred times. Now that concept doesn't change over time. From the moment you were born to the moment you die, you will always learn things because you fucked things up. Or because someone hurt you. Look back, honestly take a second and look back at every lesson you've ever learned and I can guarantee you that lesson is founded on strong mistakes, heartache, tears, and a whole lot of other sad things. If you've learned who to trust, it's probably because someone has lied to you. And if you've learned how to be positive, it's probably because you've been negative. And if you have my app find my iPhone on your iPhone it's probably because you lost your iPhone. So when you make a mistake or you fail, or you're heartbroken, yeah cry. Be sad about it, that's okay, but also be 10% happy because yo this is going to teach you something AMAZING that will help you in the future. There is a huge silver lining to everything. Picture it as an exercise for your soul.

NUMBER 4: ignore your closest friend.
