Don’t give up. Don’t give in.
Someone’s opinion of you does not reflect who you are.
Fear, guilt, hurt feelings, loneliness and anger are self induced emotions These emotions cloud our judgment leaving us to believe we are doomed until we settle into a quiet state of slow despondency. There is a way forward.
If you want to live your dream it is necessary that you surround yourself with a different set of friends who challenge you rather than belittle you.
Not everyone will have your vision.
Not everyone will see it.
Not everyone will appreciate what you do for them. You have to figure out who’s worth your attention and who’s just taking advantage of you.
Saying yes to happiness means learning to say no to the people and things that hurt you. Be wise enough to walk away from the negativity.
What you allow is what will continue. It’s better to be lonely than allow negative people and their opinions derail you from your destiny.
If you feel like your ship is sinking, it might be a good time to throw out the stuff that’s been weighing it down. Let go of people who bring you down, and surround yourself with those who bring out the best in you.
Just because someone has been in your life for many years, doesn’t mean there shouldn’t be a point at which you finally decide to let go.
One of the most difficult tasks in life is removing someone from your heart.
You have to understand that people come and people go. That’s life. Stop holding on to those who have let go of you long ago.
Sometimes we don’t forgive people because they deserve it. We forgive them because they need it, because we need it, and because we cannot let go and move forward without it.[…]
