Say What You Mean and Mean What You Say
And that's the thing about people who mean everything they say. They think everyone else does too.
Not everyone means everything they say. This is a tough life lesson to learn, especially to those people who grew up instilled with principles of honesty and integrity deeply embedded in their psyche. As we face the real world, we would like to think that everyone is honest, and has the best intentions, but this is simply not true. We have to take the world for what it is.

This doesn't mean that we should go around being dishonest just because everyone else is but it does mean that we shouldn't be so naive to believe that what everyone says is true. An old saying might be a little too harsh but it is something to think about "Believe only half of what you see, and none of what you hear." Learn to trust those who only deserve your trust and no one who doesn't.

If You Judge People You Have No Time To Love Them
Before you judge me by my life, my past or my character... Walk in my shoes, walk the path I have traveled, live my sorrow, my doubts, my fear, my pain, and my laughter...
Judging others is one of the most destructive tools that we can use on ourselves. Many of us don't realize it, but when we judge others, and make our judgments known to the world, we signify to the world that we are willing and open to be judged as well. As everyone is able and inevitably makes mistakes, when we choose to judge others, the scope we have on our own lives for when we make our own mistakes will be magnified 10 times greater.

Tough Times Don't Last, Tough People Do

Tough Times Don't Last, Tough People Do
Tough times don't last, tough people do.
Sometimes after we experience painful situations in life, we have to come to realize that getting past them in our minds completely will just take some time. In this time one thing that is very helpful to allow us to cope and to grieve with the pain of losing someone or something in our lives that we expected to be there forever is that if we work on ourselves, and improve spiritually, emotionally, and physically, we will help ourselves to realize that we are made better because of what we have been through, and that life doesn't stop just because certain circumstances have made their way into our lives.

Be Honest With Yourself At All Times
Being honest may not get you a lot of friends but it'll always get you the right ones.
In a world full of dishonesty, not only are those who are full of honesty rare, they are really jewels to today's society. Don't go out of your way to hide the truth, instead go out of your way to make the truth be known. Don't lie to yourself, be honest with yourself at all times, and know that doing so will lead to you making much more significant strides in your life than you would have if you decided to be dishonest.
