When you’re facing a Federal Prison sentence, or serving time in Federal Prison, it’s easy to feel sorry for yourself. It’s like this voice within you points out the unfairness of your situation… and how other people did way worse than you and you’re not really a bad person. Blah. Blah. Blah.
Don’t get me wrong; your situation might be really unfair. Other people might have committed more serious crimes. You might be a wonderful human being. But at the end of the day, none of that matters now, and the more you give your head space to that complaining voice, the worse you’ll feel and the harder every day will be for you. Whether you’re on the outside, or already in Federal Prison, people will lose patience with you if all you do is whine. You’ll make others miserable and you’ll sabotage yourself in the process.
Make a decision to DO something instead of complaining about your circumstance. If you’re still awaiting sentencing, be proactive and act on the things that could better your situation (if you don’t know what those things are, we should talk, so call me). If you’re already serving time in Federal Prison, use what’s available to you and set yourself up for a positive outcome; participate in the right classes, keep good records, be mindful of the circle of people you associate with and take good care of your physical and emotional health.
Whether you’re hoping for a sentence reduction, or serving time and looking forward to your date of release, I can help you make a better reality for yourself.
