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. 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.
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.
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.
People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. When you figure out which it is, you know exactly what to do.
I’m sure we have all wanted to go back in time and be who we used to be, especially when someone that we used to love was around. For instance many of us who have lost close loved ones unexpectedly and suddenly are left with feelings of resentment and the cluelessness of what may have been if that person was able to stay around longer.
The simple fact is that people are in our lives for seasons, and whether or not we are ready to let them go out of our lives, it isn’t up to us. Life happens! Take the good and the bad, the happy and the sad, and all of what you learned directly and indirectly from your relationship with your lost loved one and input these given variables into the huge equation that some of us call life, and slowly but surely you will be closer and closer to the answer.
Life is too short to stress yourself with people who don’t even deserve to be an issue in your life.
Life seems to be much too short to be stressed over people who don’t even deserve to be an afterthought in your mind. Many times we find ourselves being guilty of something that we more often than not realize is belittling to our own lives and progress made. Life isn’t something that we should knowingly allow ourselves to waste time in, because we are never guaranteed any more time to spend in this tough world.
Instead of dedicating your thoughts and energy to someone who doesn’t matter, focus on keeping people around you who do matter! Or in other words, keeping people around you who won’t be a problem in your life, but instead people who help you to create solutions for the problems you face.
Life is more than what we as a majority or society if you will, tend to think it is, and life is also much shorter than most men predict. Give your time to becoming the best person you may become, so that in turn, you may help others to become the best they may become.
Don’t allow others to control the direction of your life. When you are writing the story of your life, don’t let anyone else hold the pen.
Take a look at your life today and ask yourself, who is holding the pen to the life story that you are creating on a daily basis. Is it your friends, your husband or wife, your kids, your parents? It is important to ask yourself this because the person that should be writing your life story is you. In ten years you don’t want to regret not taking life by the horns, and just sitting on the sidelines because of your circumstances.
Time is the most valuable asset that we have because it is something we all have and spend, but can never get back. Of course we have certain responsibilities that we must tend but we can always find a way to make time to follow our dreams. It is all about staying motivated, disciplined and encouraged. Do those three things, and no obstacle standing in your way will stand a chance of stopping you from realizing your dreams.
You are good enough, smart enough, beautiful enough, strong enough. Believe it and stop letting insecurity run your life.
No matter what feelings have us down at certain points in our lives, and have us feeling as though we aren’t made to overcome whatever complications that we are going through we must take time to realize the fact that we are bigger than our problems, despite how small they may make us feel. You are good enough; to overcome those who try to bring you down, because when someone or something is trying to bring you down, remember they are beneath you.
You are good enough to stand up for what is right, we all have our flaws, true, but if you don’t stand up for what is right, no one will. You are good enough to receive what you fought hard for. Don’t be ashamed of being blessed for your hard work you deserve it. It is important not to gloat and to be too proud, but being blessed for your hard work is nothing to be ashamed of. You are good enough for this world, the real question is , is the world good enough for you?
Don’t limit yourself. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. You can go as far as your mind lets you. What you believe, remember, you can achieve.
Too many of us choose to limit ourselves by not using everything that we have inside of us, to get where we need to go. How many times have you seen someone who you know or knew growing up, that seemed to be less talented, and less resourceful than everyone else, but now that person seems to be one of the most favored people you have ever seen.
There was once a woman who grew up in a tough environment. People told her she was never going to amount to much else than everyone else that grew up where she did. People told her that as a woman there wasn’t much that she could do, or many people that she could help change, and that her dreams were crazy and ridiculous.
What if I told you that this woman, Mother Teresa, helped millions by feeding them, and loving them because she was willing to use her whole box of crayons! Use everything you have inside of you, consistently, work from your heart, and just love the people around you, and you will make a huge
Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself.
Are you living your life to its fullest potential by completely and utterly being yourself in every way? Some of us get so caught up in the world that we desire for ourselves, that we choose to do it by selling ourselves out, instead of reaching for real happiness, love and fulfillment by being ourselves.
If you really want to make this life your life, you have to consciously and consistently make decisions that allow for you to be yourself. You can only continue to tell who you are on the inside “no” for so long, until you eventually find yourself lost in your own life.
So be you! There is nothing better in this world than a person who doesn’t mind being the creative, and unique individual that they really are! Not only will you be a genuine you, but the relationships you build while being you, and the accomplishments that you achieve will also be genuine!
