If youve never tasted a bad apple, you will not appreciate a good apple. You have to experience life to understand life. You have to endure disappointment in life, all kind of disappointments, you have to fall flat on your face and feel the pain. Accept that a lot of your “friends”rather see you fall and fail. Jealousy is bad disease. It’s hard to accept and it has a bitter taste, but thats life. At the end if you don’t give up, SUCCESS is inevitable. We have to fall before we find out who we really are and what we are capable of.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. One of my favourite songs i must say, I had to share it.🤣 Watch it for fun.)
Do what you love. And fuck everything else. Love who you want to love. And fuck their opinions. Fuck their criticisms. You deserve to live your life the way you want to live it. Chase who you want. Be who you want. Dress how you want. Speak what’s in your heart. Worship what you believe in. And be kind to others. And fuck everything else.
Fuck the drama. Fuck the pain. Fuck the hate. Fuck the social media manipulation. Fuck that. Be an authentic version of yourself. Life is too short to die wishing you had done a little more. (Not my words.)
I saw a post today that said, “When you finally learn your place in peoples lives, your feelings won’t get hurt. And loyalty doesn’t mean accepting unlimited amounts of inconsistency & pain from others”.
Whether it’s friends, family or whoever. I swear that’s the truth and one of the most important life lessons you’ll learn.
Don’t let this world make you bitter. Don’t let the actions of other people turn you cold on the inside. Certain things happen that hurt us, people come that leave us, and most of all there are moments when you’re bound to fall. Don’t let those things make you unkind. It’s okay to cry. It’s okay to be sad. But it’s never okay to do other people wrong just because you were done wrong. We’re human. We break. We make mistakes. But don’t let pain and sadness run your life.
Wake up in the morning and do what you think is right. There are moments in your life where you feel like giving up and you can’t take it anymore. It’s okay. Breathe. Inhale. Exhale. I know you’re weak. But the things that show your weak side are also the same ones that make you stronger in the long run. It’s all about taking whatever life throws at you and learning from it.
When people act shady, allow them. When people betray your trust, allow them. But never, ever sink to their level. Their choices are a direct reflection of who they are, not who you are. No matter how angry, hurt, or disappointed you may be, do not allow them to make you bitter. Be better. React with love. Sometimes that means retaliating with understanding and compassion; other times it means retaliating with acceptance and sheer silence. Whatever it is, make sure it benefits you as a human being instead of lowering you into a position which you would rather not be in.
Normal people dont go around destroying other human beings. Only those who are hurt, lost, and confused cause pain. Don’t be one of them. Just take the lessons and move on gracefully.
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.
Just always be the better person. And make your intentions pure. What and who you are is what you’ll attract, what you’ll maintain. Pain is inevitable and it will always exist, but if you focus on understanding what you are feeling and why you are feeling it, you will overcome it.
More than anything, the world needs you to show up, strong and courageous, to lead them into something new. They may not know it. They may not see it. They may not understand it. But, deep within you, you see it and you recognize it. You don’t just see this present moment. But you see what could be. And, that’s a gift.
You see the pain, but you also see the healing. You see the problem, but you also see the solution. You see the lack, but you also see the provision. You see the the gap, but you also see the bridge. You know there’s a better tomorrow. So, lean into that. TRUST YOURSELF.
