You have this one life. How do you wanna spend it? Apologizing? Regretting? Questioning? Hating yourself? Running after people who don’t see you?
Be brave. Believe in yourself. Do what feels good. Take risks. You have this one life. Make yourself proud.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. No disrespect to Boris Johnson or Irish people, this one is funny af. No matter how much i laugh, it’s kinda true. I had to share this 55 seconds pure joy.)
I continually strive to be better by evaluating my daily actions, reactions, responses & behaviour. And i measure how they affect other people. When I realize that my actions may have hurt someone, I make a point to go to them and apologize in a meaningful way. It feels good when I make a conscious effort to recognize my faults and then do everything I can to make them right and demonstrate my love & care. These actions are so much more impactful than words.
Think about someone you should reach out to, whether it is to apologize or reconnect, tell them that you love them or that you are sorry. When your intentions are right, your actions will make sense to anyone you connect/reconnect. Always remember; actions speak louder than words, only when your intentions are clear.
You’ve got to ask yourself what you’re living for, who you’re living for, and if none of those answers begin with you then you’re living your life wrong. You’re living a lie.
Everything you do should revolve around you. Every person, every place, ever moment should start and end with you. This is your life and you shouldn’t spend it on dull things, in people who don’t understand the type of love you carry within your bones. Because you only live once and it’s your job to make it count. So let every day be yours, own it and never apologize for being who you are.
Here’s the thing about people with good hearts. They give you excuses when you don’t explain yourself. They accept apologies you don’t give. They see the best in you when you don’t need them to. At your worst, they lift you up, even if it means putting their priorities aside. The word “busy” does not exist in their dictionary. They make time, even when you don’t. And you wonder why they’re the most sensitive people. You wonder why they’re the most caring people. You wonder why they are willing to give so much of themselves with no expectation in return. You wonder why their existence is not so essential to your well-being. It’s because they don’t make you work hard for the attention they give you. They accept the love they think they’ve earned, and you accept the love you think you’re entitled to.
Let me tell you something; Fear the day when a good heart gives up on you. Our skies don’t become gray out of nowhere. Our sunshine does not allow the darkness to take over for no reason. A heart does not turn cold unless it’s been treated with coldness for a while. (Not my words)
Grudges are a waste of perfect happiness. Laugh when you can. Apologize when you should and let go of what you can. Take chances. Give everything and have no regrets. Life is too short to be unhappy. You have to take the good with the bad. Smile when you’re sad. Love what you got and always remember what you had. Always forgive but never forget. Learn from your mistakes but never regret. People change and things go wrong.
At the end always remember; life is fun & life goes on.
Most people fail to walk their TRUTH, fail to be true to self and others at the same time. Being honest never comes easy, but it’s easier than any kind of lie/deceit or hiding something. This is what sets a truthful person apart from random crowd. TRUTHFUL OR A HONEST PERSON, i am talking about.
They own up to their mistakes. Honest people have all kinds of amazing traits, but obviously no one is perfect. Everyone makes mistakes, but what sets honest people apart is their willingness to take responsibility and apologize when they mess up. You’ve probably encountered someone who’s bad at saying sorry. Instead of owning up to their mistakes they’ll make excuses or apologize that you experience negative feelings, not that they did something wrong. Honest people are different. Those with integrity seek the truth, even if the truth exposes them for doing something wrong. They will swallow their pride and their ego for the sake of an authentic and sincere apology. Telling the truth doesn’t come naturally. Defense mechanisms, like blame projection and deceit are much easier alternatives in the moment, but avoiding responsibility only creates more trouble.
Hopefully this will help you identify if you are someone honest or someone in your life is truly honest. It might also make you realize that perhaps you’re not as honest as you thought. Nevertheless we should all pursue truth, even when it seems daunting and difficult. The world needs more honesty. If you lie about who you are or about someone else, what actually happened or how you feel, you’ll only dig yourself deeper into a problem of your own creation. The choice is yours. Be honest or lie, what you choose will impact your life immensely.
