Perhaps we underestimate the power of loyalty and reliability and we trade it for excitement , extravagance and adventure. Maybe what you do everyday isn’t always exciting, but always be happy for what you already have. If you have at least one person that you can go to everyday, treasure that. In loneliness we learn that while it is perfectly okay to depend on ourselves, it is impossible to measure the power of love. The love we receive should then be distributed amongst ourselves.If you love yourself, then you are loved !It is not only from pain that you learn, although there is much to be learned from pain. There is so much more to be learned from love.
Whatever philosophy you might follow in life, remember that it must not hurt others or be self harming. It must make you do only good things, it should preach love .
Sometimes you love at a level people can’t even comprehend and behind a great love story, there’s an individual finding himself or herself. And as you never stop learning about people, you never stop learning about yourself. There’s sacrifice that comes with love and love always starts with you.
I love this quote that says that “In life you’ll realize that there’s a purpose for every person you meet.Some are there to test you… Some will use you… Some will teach you and some will bring out the best in you”. Most people that come into your life are a reflection of you, of what you’ve done, will do, of what you are willing to. Some people will make you question your character, they will make offers you “cannot refuse”. Others will be there to find your vulnerability and manipulate it to their liking.Remember even your weaknesses can turn into strengths. Be strong and courageous to be who you are, just be resilient and persevere.
My favorite people are those who are here to teach me. Not to necessarily impose their opinions on me, but for me to expand my horizons, see the world in different eyes. Even people that do not share your beliefs can teach you things. To be open minded is to accept there is more than to this life than what you see, what you hear, what you learn. Even the most ludicrous idea should be analyzed. My other favorite type of people are those that either bring the worst out of me or the best out of me.
Why the worst?We all have triggers; things that have an unexpected effect on us. We do have control of our emotions, remember that. And to learn this you may have to have an encounter with a situation that completely gets you out of control.You don’t necessarily start avoiding life ,you can’t dodge what it throws at you, but you can decide who the person is that you want to be.
The people that bring out the best in you make you remember your humanity. They remind you, that you must do good to receive any good. They remember how much you have grown as a person and how you can work on becoming even better. Try to always be your best version.
People struggle to find their sense of purpose when the purpose of anyone’s life should be happiness. Your motivation? It should be to be happy. Whatever issues you may have with someone else, fix the issues you have with yourself first. Sometimes we project our frustration on others and sometimes what we detest about certain people is what we detest about ourselves. Before trying to save the world, make sure you are saved.The greatest thing you can give to yourself is love.
Forgive yourself .It is easier to forgive others , but it is hard to forgive yourself. While you may not have the forgiveness of the one you have hurt, having your own forgiveness will help you move on and make a change.And while the person that has hurt you may not have asked you for forgiveness; forgive them. You are greater than your circumstances, than your scars and your emotions.
Have an understanding of who you are, but do not look down upon or scorn others that do not share your ideals. Tolerate other people’s ideals and respectfully disagree. Do not believe something you have lived and do not disregard an idea you do not have full knowledge about.Be honest, be respectful,be loving, be forgiving, be conscientious, be aware, be open minded.
