Instead of saying “I’m lazy,” saying “I’ve made a habit of not doing work unless it’s absolutely necessary.”
Instead of saying “I’m a bad friend,” saying “I haven’t communicated as much as I should with the people I care about.”
By being specific about your problems, and by framing it as an action that you are consciously either working on or ignoring rather than an unchangeable part of who you are, you allow yourself to accept your mistakes and work constructively on them instead of pretending they didn’t happen or wallowing in blaming yourself.
Honestly I think one of the most empowering things you can do for yourself is to separate your negative qualities from your identity. (Not my words.)
Someone can be madly in love with you and still not be ready. Someday that “I LOVE YOU” will fall short. They can love you in a way you have never been loved before and still not join you on the bridge. And whatever their reasons, you must leave. Because you never ever have to inspire anyone to meet you on the bridge. You never ever have to convince someone to do the work to be ready. There is more extraordinary love, more love that you have never seen, out here in this wide and wild universe. And there is that love who’s out there somewhere worth of a stable relationship.
(Borrowed paragraph from a previous post)
Relationships aren’t hard, It’s people who are inconsistent and lazy to put time and effort. We all want growth in every aspect of life while expecting to grow stronger together in a relationship. If your relationship isn’t helping you become a better version of yourself, then you are in a wrong relationship.
The most basic human tendency is to keep seeking a better tomorrow. Personal growth is the major priority, a journey to achieve joyful living. Life is fun, let it be.
People are not lazy. They simply have impotent goals – that is, goals that do not inspire them.
– Tony Robbins.
If you are active & feeling “How fast/busy life is!!”, I swear there is no better feeling than that. Learn to be happy with it. But if you are pretending being busy because you are just lazy, you too know you are nothing but just another boring person. Being optimistic is good, but that matters nothing without being real.
Problem in most people is, they are ok being OK towards everything wrong with own life. How can you value someone when he/she isn’t valuing him/herself!?!
