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.

Begin Doing What You Want To Do Now
Begin doing what you want to do now. You are not living in eternity.

Don't Let These Walls Stop You
Don't let these walls stop you.
In different instances in our lives it is easy to stop pursuing a relationship that we know that if we put a tad bit more effort towards would blossom into a heavenly flower of infinite beauty, because of the walls that one or both parties is putting up. Sometimes people that have been hurt in the past or whom are afraid of giving someone a chance because they never want to be hurt, choose to put walls up in order to prevent this from happening.

Be Soft, Do Not Let The World Make You Hard

Be Soft, Do Not Let The World Make You Hard
Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let the pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride. Even though the rest of the world may disagree you still believe it to be a beautiful place.
We all have experienced things in life that have given us a sort of thick skin, or as some may say pain that has caused up to put up a guard. Protecting ourselves is just part of our human nature, naturally no one wants to be hurt, and when we realize the things that hurt us we tend to stay away from them, or if we do go around the things that have made us hurt before, we go around them skeptically, sometimes with the intent to cause those things the pain that they may have caused us.

Forgiveness Is A Promise

Forgiveness Is A Promise
Forgiveness is a promise, not a feeling. When you forgive other people, you are making a promise not to use their past sins against them.
Forgiveness is a major part of life that almost everyone has trouble doing. Learning to forgive someone that has wronged us is a very long and difficult process that must be done. Without forgiveness we can not let go of the bitterness and resentment we have towards someone, and without letting go of these things, they start to eat back at us spiritually, emotionally, and eventually physically.
