It doesn’t matter what other people think of you. We all want to be liked and loved but what really matters is what we think. It’s important to be able to look in the mirror and like what you see.
It’s not worth arguing with someone who doesn’t listen. Know when it’s time to smile and agree to disagree.
When someone says I want to be honest with you – what they really mean is I’m going to unleash on you. Maybe we can save some time and say “no that’s ok – lets be polite with each other -no judgements”.
Text messages, this is the best way to allow someone to ruin your day. They just sit there and type away – before you know it, you are reading paragraphs on what they think of you and how great they are. Don’t waste your time – don’t even read it – erase it and send a thumbs up.
Sometimes the people we love and care about say and do things that are hurtful. Do not waste your time being angry at them. And definitely do not step down to their level. Love conquers all – don’t ruin relationships on things that don’t matter.
Remember you don’t always have to defend yourself -you know your worth and that’s all that matters. Be strong today but be soft. Use little words and big actions to prove your points. Let Jesus be your teacher.
We have all been knocked down in life. In order to be strong you have to endure heartache, loss and failure. Once you live through the pain and disappointment you realize you are a survivor. The definition of survivor is a person who copes well with difficulty in their life.
I have had my fair share of difficulties and failures which I’m grateful for. It means I’m living life and taking risks. Most of these failures became blessings. Because the lessons I learned were extremely valuable. I would not be a successful woman, wife or mother if I didn’t go through the heartaches and headaches of life.
Don’t be afraid to express yourself, be vulnerable and reach for the stars. Even if things don’t work out it will shape you and make you stronger. Stronger to love, and live life to its fullest.
