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 overpower your intelligence.
There are so many popular figures who want people to think they are strong and tough because they use substances and party all night long. To me, strong is when you can sit through your problems and feel your emotions, when you don’t have to hide them. There have been nights where I’ve had to sit on my hands because I want to act out, because I physically can’t sit still in the pain or I’m trying to distract myself from living in the moment.
Stop running and start dealing with life and your problems. It could be as simple as not checking your phone when you’re uncomfortable or alone. Listen to what’s going on in your mind and respect the thoughts coming to you. If you’re spending your entire life chasing the next party, what are you running away from?
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.
Train your mind to be stronger than your emotions. Having self-control will get you further than constantly reacting to everything that’s trying to test your patience. Center yourself and remain calm in difficult or challenging situations.
In LOVE, I have been elated and brokenhearted and felt every emotion in between. As I’ve gotten older I’ve learned to embrace the painful parts, because I realize they make me stronger and they are just parts of life. It hurts to power through the rough times but just like a muscle, it must be exercised before it’s able to become stronger.
Think about a specific painful moment in your life, and then think about how that feeling didn’t last forever even though you thought it would. Remember that life will continue to go on and time really does heal all wounds. I’m grateful for all the love and all the heartache I’ve experienced in my life. Both have been equally wonderful.
FEELINGS, the thing about this way that you feel right now is that it’s only temporary. I know that your mind is consumed right now, suffocating; it’s like you can’t find a way to think about anything other than the things that are causing you anxiety. These feelings don’t last. It may not feel like it right now, but this feeling will fade; maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but you will smile again, you will feel like you again, you will feel happy and full of life again. Nothing is permanent. That’s the bittersweet part about life. That’s why it’s so important to appreciate the truly amazing parts and people in your life while also understanding that the bad days won’t last forever. Always be present, always be grateful, always know that you’ll get through this obstacle and the one after that.
You’re so much stronger than you think you are right now. Think about it; you’ve gotten through every tough day in your life so far, and this is no different. Take a big breath and think of all the things you have to be grateful for and breathe out all the bad. You are in control of how you feel. You are in control of this moment. YOU ARE IN CONTROL. PERIOD.
In a world that seeks connection, we oddly avoid eye contact, we time our text responses in order to protect ourselves from seeming too eager or too interested, and we hold our feelings back because we don’t want to seem overly emotional or unreasonable.
We silence our instincts, and at the end of the day instead of feeling good about ourselves, we feel alone, we feel misunderstood.
Remember, it is okay to be emotional, to seek help, to confidently tell someone you enjoy being around that you are infatuated with them. There is nothing wrong with vulnerability, with being human, for that is what creates depth within our relationships, and that is what ultimately unifies us. If your feelings & emotions bring joy, show them. Living a happy life means, do what you wish to do right now.
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 overpower your intelligence.
Self-control is strength. Calmness is mastery.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above and it also got nothing to do with next few lines i am typing. Shared it because this PEGASUS spyware row is getting wilder day by day. Governments of UK, India, France, USA, Dubai, Israel & 35 other countries tapped/hacked 50000 phone numbers of journalists, political leaders, terrorists, even a country’s prime minister. Am i against this? Hell NO. Countries are supposed to spy on each other for their safety. It’s a thing from cold war era, this will keep on going because it’s nothing new. Read more by clicking here.)
