When something bad happens you have three choices, you can either let it define you, let it destroy you or let it strengthen you.
There are always going to be bad things that happen in your life, what is the measure of a man, is how he or she responds to the things that happen in their lives. When you think about the greatest beings that walk earth, you realize that those who are great don't get caught up in falling or losing a battle. Those who are great rise to the occasion, and shrug off defeat.
When we choose to let the opinions of others matter too much to us, then we are choosing to let their opinions consume us. Instead of living your life worried about what others may think or feel about what you are doing, live your life to the best of your ability, with the things that are in your heart and not someone else's heart.
To a degree, in our lives as each moment passes and different circumstances come to past, we have to realize that after they happen, there is no way to change them. We must take life for what it is, a series of unpredictable events ultimately out of our control.
No matter what I do I always forget to forget you.
Doesn't it seem as though we all have that special someone who may have left from our lives months to years ago but still seem to stay on our mind. If you don't have someone in your life as such right now, you more than likely will, and this is just a normal part of existence on this earth.
Waiting for things to happen is a downfall that prohibits the greatness of many people living in our population from shining bright. It is ok to believe, and it is very commendable and admirable to be a faithful person. But in doing so, one must also be willing to do everything possible that they are able to do alone in order to better their chances that the results desired will occur.
Begin doing what you want to do now. You are not living in eternity.
One of the most important things that many people tend to forget or not think about, especially those who are younger in age is that life doesn't last forever. Though at times we may feel as though we are invincible, we aren't in any fashion, and the next minute, hour, nor day is promised to us.
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. 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, 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.
