Please stop overthinking life like you have to have an answer to every feeling or situation. That’s not how life works. We figure it all out by just living. We learn what’s important and what isn’t by messing up, by missing an opportunity, by seeking advice and not taking it.
Sometimes we have no damn clue what to do, and that’s okay. Always trust your gut and know that everything works out the way it’s meant to. It always does. Relax; we were never in control anyway.
Self-control is strength. Calmness is mastery. You have to get to a point where your mood doesn’t shift based on the insignificant actions of someone else. Don’t allow others to control the direction of your life. Don’t allow your emotions to empower your intelligence.
Hurting people back will not heal your pain. Learn to react to people constructively, even if that means being alone in silence, to study your emotions. In your response is your DESTINY. If you do not take conscious control of your reaction, you will give away your power.
As you mature, the more you realize these 12 things:
1: No one has it all together. 2: Trusting your gut the first time is usually the best option. 3: The world is more gray than black and white. 4: You can’t control other people. 5: Holding grudges is not the best use of your time. 6: Being honest could save you a lot of time. 7: Childhood, although short, was very impactful. 8: Life is too short to stay in unhealthy relationships. 9: People tell you exactly who they are and it’s your job to listen. 10: Winning an argument is not as important as finding a solution. 11: Having a support system improves your mood and quality of life. 12: Everything and everyone is not worth your energy.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. I have heard enough of LOVE ABOVE MONEY or similar bullshits very often. Most people prefer not talking about MONEY as if it’s a taboo. On the other hand, i love it when someone says “I LOVE MONEY & I LOVE MAKING MONEY. ALL MY DEMANDS ARE FROM MYSELF”. First learn about it, then implement it. Investment is a sexy thing.)
You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. This is a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind. That’s the only thing you should be trying to control.
Three major lessons you must learn for an easy smooth sailing life;
1. Sometimes bad things happen to good people and sometimes you might think you know someone, you might think they’re on your side but deep down inside they’re not. Pay attention. Actions speak louder than words, inconsistent words mean nothing and such words are just another way to cover up the truth with lies.
2. Almost everything we go through we can’t control. That means, if it’s yours, then somewhere down the line it’ll return to you. And if it’s not, then you have to make peace with it and move on. It’s as simple as that.
3. Letting go is never an easy thing to do, no matter how many times you’ve rehearsed it, no matter how many times you’ve played it in your head, it never goes as planned and almost always does it sting a little harder than you thought. (Not my words.)
I think sometimes people believe that worrying has some kind of productive purpose. Worry sucks all of your energy and joy out of whatever it is you’re doing. It’s human nature to worry, but when we do it constantly, we run into more problems. It may give you something to do, but you don’t get anywhere.
The next time you are worrying about something, try to remember that you aren’t always in control. Instead, do practical things like make a budget or create a schedule. Be proactive and let go of the stress. After all, it won’t change a thing. Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow; it empties today of its strength.
1. Stop complaining and appreciate how lucky you are every day. 2. Embrace loneliness and reinvent yourself in the process. 3. Say goodbye to the people that don’t bring consistent positive energy into your life. 4. Throw off the TV and set Internet controls. 5. Pick one skill you want to cultivate and put all your effort into developing it. 6. Commit to the goals you set and never look back. 7. Sweat every day to boost your mood. 8. Fail forward. Learn from every mistake you make.
