Being Deeply Loved Gives You Strength


Being deeply loved gives you strength, loving deeply gives you courage.
quote_being_deeply_loved
It takes a lot more courage to love someone than it does to be loved. Choosing to love means that we are ultimately willing to face the fact that we will have to give a person our trust, and our whole hearts. Very rarely will we go through life giving someone access to the deepest and most private parts of ourselves and not be disappointed by them eventually.

The pain inflicted by the people we love often isn’t intentional but it happens. It takes a very strong love to continue to love someone even after we’ve been hurt by people in the past, but real love is always worth it.

Like everything in life we are going to experience ups and downs in our relationships. The only type of advice that should be received in relation to your own personal relationships with loved ones is to make sure that you are being courageous in them. Real love can not be present with an absence of courage.

You Are Responsible For Being Happy With Your Own Life


Truth is, you’ll end up real disappointed if you think people will do for you as you do for them. Not everyone has the same heart as you

You are responsible for being happy with your own life. If you think that the people in your life are there to make you happy, you will most certainly live a life full of disappointment. No one is perfect, and no one will ever be able to live up to every single standard that you may desire for them to.

Besides, living life with others has never been about how far along you can go in a friendship or relationship without being let down.

Your relationships with others should be built around the wisdom that neither one of you will be perfect in them. There are going to be bumps in the road. The true test of a lasting friendship is how/if you will be able to get past these bumps in the road, together.

Never stop making new friends because of being let down in the past. And never stop working on the relationships that you have with others, unless it is truly time to let go.

Be Weird, Be Random, Be Who You Are


Be weird. Be random. Be who you are. Because you never know who would love the person you hide.

Never stop being who you are, even if that means you may be misunderstood by most. Just because the majority of people don’t understand you, doesn’t mean that you’re an outcast or anything of that nature. It just means you are so special that there are people out there who won’t seek to understand you, but will instead show you hate because they don’t want to understand, they’d rather just get by in life hoping to fit in.

It is because of this that we must absolutely be willing to go against the normalcies in society. We must be willing to consciously fight against the notion that we can’t be ourselves, when we totally can.

Sure there is always a certain respect you should show to those around you, but this doesn’t mean you should change who you are. Be yourself, and the people who are supposed to be in your life will always be there to help you do so.

There Are So Many Beautiful Reasons To Be happy


Don’t let your happiness be controlled by something you can’t control.

Being happy is all about perspective. Some of the poorest people in the world with just enough to get by have been shown to be more happy than people living in thriving nations and economies and the reasons are fairly obvious should we choose to give them some belief.

While many of us are made to believe that the levels of happiness we will achieve in life correlate with what we possess materially, at some point we have to be willing to confront these beliefs if we are ever going to obtain true happiness.

Happiness comes from being able to be the truest versions of ourselves, and being able to live out the purpose we have in life. We will never be able to control everything around us, but we can control how happy we are by not doubting who we are.

We can be happy by believing we are more than the struggles that we know will come along the way, and because we know there are great heights that we will eventually soar to.

Understanding Is Much Deeper


Understanding is much deeper than knowledge. There are many who know you, but very few who understand you.

In true love every moment can be a moment of discovery. When we love someone we must further our knowledge of this person as much as possible in order to gain the best understanding of this person as possible. As we gain more and more understanding about the person we love, we are able to gauge their reactions to things before they come past, we are able to talk to them in a manner that will produce the most results in times of despair, and we are able to love them to the fullest extent that love will allow.

Part of the job description of being someone’s lover is that one must take time, preferably on a daily basis to discover something new about his or her lover. Most people who have been in successful long-term relationships realize that this is a very significant way to keep their relationships fresh and young, and utilize this tool on a normal basis.

When Fear Knocks Answer With Faith


When fear knocks answer with faith.

There are going to be many times in life in which we are challenged with whether to face our fears and doubts, or to choose and have faith in order to see a miracle happen.

Choosing the side of fear in intense situations will never take you past where you haven’t already been. But keeping the faith ensures that you will at minimum have a chance to reach whatever desires are burning in your heart.

Never stop believing that your future is bright, that God has a plan for your life, even in the darkest of times.

It is in these dark times that we are able to see beautiful things like bright stars that shine above in darkness. Subtly reminding us that no matter how ugly life can be, beauty can always be found if we are willing to just look up.

Accepting Your Flaws


Once you’ve accepted your flaws, no one can use them against you.

Life will never be any fun if you can never rise above the small thoughts and opinions people will have of you. Just because you or the people around you have made a decision about who you are based on your flaws, doesn’t ever mean that you really are this person, or that your weaknesses must remain your weaknesses.

In order to continually put yourself in a position of growth embrace the idea that flaws are real, and embrace the wisdom that tells us that with enough hard work, these flaws can become our strengths.

Don’t deny that you are flawed, for we all are. The difference between those who succeed and those who succeed gloriously is the way that they are able to turn their weakest attributes into their greatest strengths.

Be great, conquer your weaknesses with practice, dedication, consistency, and heart.
