Life isn’t easy especially after experiencing a significant loss in life. We always try to make the best of everything moving forward. Supportive, loving, caring, and sensitive to the needs of one another. If there is one thing I’ve learned growing up, is the importance of privacy, maybe why so rebellious online now Campaigning. To me it means being there for others. Misunderstood mostly as overexposing oneself. When we are most at risk of harm is when we are quiet as to the issues that hurt the most. Talking out loud about how violence and fighting makes us feel, is important. Maybe in the immediate its not clearly understood how I’m helping, but I hope that by sharing my story I’ve made some kind of difference.
*Don’t let negativity get the best of you. You will meet a lot of unhappy people in your lifetime. –That’s just a fact of life. The best you can do is be positive and never take anything too personally. Usually what people say and how they express themselves to you is a direct reflection about how they feel about themselves. Sometimes nothing to do with you. Always take that into consideration. People only see what they want to see if you don’t fit into the lives of some you will fit into the lives of others. Don’t let anyone destroy you. Remind yourself that you’re worth it. Always do your best to rise above and don’t be co-dependent on acceptance from others in order to progress and thrive. Sometimes you need to grow independent of others in order to get strong. Learn to let go of resentments and don’t pass judgments on others unless you are willing to accept judgments passed upon you. What you put out into the world you get back.
Never speak badly of others, everything you say is a direct reflection of yourself and how you see things. You should not require others to see like you in order to be you. Don’t worry what other people think and never let any one person’s opinion of you bring you down. No one can lift you up in life only yourself. In order to fit in and feel normal you must first be accepting of ones self.
You will meet many people in life. Only a few will care so much as to pause and help you with whatever it is you are going through in life. We call them friends. Not everyone is your friend nor can be your friend and that’s okay. You have to be accepting of others and take them for what theyre worth, the less you expect the more you get out of life. Enjoy the moment and try not to harp on the negatives.
What you see is what you get. Don’t expect too much in life from others. People are only capable of giving so much. Everyone has their limits. Its not for you to determine what is fair. You will experience a lot of disappointments in life if you are constantly comparing yourself to others feeling less fortunate than. Always be grateful for what you’ve got. Change is just around the corner. Those who surround themselves with love will always be loved and appreciated. You have to give in order to receive in life.
Always be reminded that you are capable of achieving anything you set your mind to. And that what you choose to focus on is where your strengths will lie and what amount of effort you put forth daily toward achieving your goals, your total output will reflect that for better or worse. Nothing can be achieved in one day which can be achieved greatly in many days, don’t overwhelm yourself by deadlines, and always try to stay ahead of schedule by accomplishing a little but each day is better than nothing at all worried and distracted by things that don’t matter, you’ll later regret all the wasted time and attention to things that interfere with the accomplishment of your goals, and only bring you momentary satisfaction in life. Achievements come at the cost of sacrificing the needs of others for yourself, or putting the needs of others before your own, its hard to focus on both, but maintaining a health balance is required to feel normal, in time, and not off center. Learn to be as patient with yourself as you are with others, time is precious, choose wisely, how you spend it, and spend it on things that matter.
Life is scary if that’s what you make it out to be. You see what you want to see. Always do your best to keep it positive. We go through many different changes in perspective, outlook, and moods during any ongoing investigation. If you get scared its always okay to take a break. Never force connections, make assumptions, or create circumstances adverse to your best interests. Meaning safety comes first if you feel unsafe it is because you have been made to feel unsafe. Think about all contributing factors, from those points you may arrive at new leads or a deeper understanding of the facts presented to you, and understood. Take breaks when necessary and if you need backup never be afraid to ask for help, direct as to areas of concern, and leave no one astray, always be on the same page.
Life is a test. We are constantly pushed and pulled in different directions throughout our whole lives. Testing our strength and testing the boundaries we set for ourselves. Always be mindful of your limits in life, exceed expectations, and respect the boundaries of others. We can do our best and never be good enough. That’s okay. We can do everything right, and some things may go wrong. That’s okay. Living life is all about facing those challenges, and in spite of our struggles we still manage to find success, never giving up. Life is a test.
You are who you are not by what you say but by what you do. Actions speak louder than words. –If at first you “don’t succeed”, pick yourself up and try again. Never give up, for a better tomorrow. The only person you let down, when you stop trying is yourself.
You only have one life to live, so make the best of it. No one is worth losing yourself over, always rise above. It’s never worth fighting for the attention of others, attention is given to those they think deserve attention. If you feel left out, then do something for yourself to better yourself so that you can be included, will be included, so that others are more accepting of you. Its’ not your responsibility to change to accommodate the needs of others, only to represent yourself best, better yourself, and do your best to be the best version of yourself, with or without certain people in your life.
There’s nothing to be ashamed about when it comes to dating. We’ve all made mistakes, whats important is that you’ve learned from those mistakes and grown as a person, stronger because of your experiences in life. We all wish we waited for the one, but that simply doesn’t happen anymore. We date to know our likes and dislikes, and to determine who we are most compatible with. [Always be accepting of those who love you, and everything about them, in order to make a relationship work, for the long term]. That doesn’t mean sleep with everyone you date, but know how to set limits and boundaries between yourself and others so that they know you’re looking for Marriage, not just a casual good time. That’s how you avoid getting hurt in relationships, so long as they know what your expectations are, you are free to leave at anytime you feel that those expectations have not been met or satisfied. We always want better, but its important to do your part and be the best that you can be –if so, it will be easier to find matches in life the more well off you are and put together. Don’t be too hard on yourself and don’t be too hard on others. The fewer the expectations, the better off you both will be.
