Word of the day
Just a few lessons, I had to learn/am still learning…
YOU DESERVE TO BE UNREASONABLY HAPPY
Don’t let anyone tell you any different. You need to do the things that make you happy.
It’s never the situation, always the principle.
YOU CAN NOT CHANGE PEOPLE.
People are going to be exactly who they are. They’ll never be what you want them to be or who you think they should be. You can not make people happy…okay…I’ll say it again. YOU CAN NOT MAKE PEOPLE HAPPY. Happy is an inside job.
There are no victims, only volunteers
You teach people how to treat you, in what you tolerate and allow. We give people the ability to hurt us. You are responsible for the people you allow to have access to us. EVERYBODY DOESN’T DESERVE YOU. You can’t control the things people do [it’s not your fault] but, [it is your problem] you can only control how you respond/react. Have the courage to live beyond toxic relationships.
BE ON TIME & KEEP YOUR WORD [integrity matters]
When you aren’t on time and can’t keep your word, it indicates you have a hard time meeting your obligations. This becomes a character issue. (Pay your bills on time, the same indication applies. Late payments stay on your credit report for up to seven years!)
People are going to disappoint you
Titles and expectations only intensify the emotions of disappointment…you expect more from certain people.
“The people that are supposed to protect you from the monsters are often the monsters themselves”
RELATIONSHIPS REQUIRE AN ABUNDANCE OF FORGIVENESS
Forgiveness really isn’t about the other person, it is about you. You aren’t obligated to rebuild a relationship with everyone you’ve forgiven. The reality is, some things can only be forgiven, not fixed.
Love looks different for everybody
Love language is real. You don’t know what love is and looks like to another person until you experience it.
MISERY LOVES COMPANY
Hurt people hurt people. People who are unhappy get a sense of consolation knowing that others feel the same way they do.
Watch your mouth.
You don’t have to say everything you’re thinking. Words can only be forgiven, not forgotten. Don’t say things you’ll have to apologize for later. Apologies are worth less than you think, the don’t fix everything…really too much of anything.
Be accountable for your own life. The blame game is no longer an option, you are an adult. You are responsible for everything you do and say; regardless of everything.
