Life Lesson

Dealing with your own pain is hard enough, but dealing with that of someone else, especially someone you care for and love deeply, is a whole other thing all together. 

You can’t fight someone in their struggle, let alone about their struggle. They have to heal in their own way, in their own time. All you can do is be present for them, patient, understanding, honest, truthful, supportive, and loving. It’s not a walk in the park. Seeing another suffer is one of the absolute worst things that we have to deal with as humans. But it happens. And we have to be there for people in their struggle. They have to deal and we need to be there for them. Because though their struggle affects us, it’s not about us, it’s about them. Remember that. We all have to learn. 

Something To Think About

Life is a balance of good and bad.

There are bad things that happen that we can not control or change, there are good things that happen that we can not control or change. The point is, we have to accept and deal with this. We are always complaining about things we think are not right or unfair, well, that’s life. It happens. As much as it can suck and as great as it can be, life is both good and bad. We need both. We need balance. Not to say we can’t complain every now and then. We have every reason and right to, but in the end, that helps nothing.

There will always be hardship and struggle for all life. There will also always be good and happiness for all life. We must do the best we can to make things the best we can. We can come together to help lessen the unecessary, ruthless slaughter of animals, abuse and unecessary harm of our fellow mankind, stop the wars of people who can not respect the fact that we are different and that’s okay, and help people learn to love and care for themselves.

There will always be a chance to do something good, help ourselves and others, love and take care of our world, and make a positive impact. Know that bad things are going to happen, and that you have to deal with it. Know that good things are going to happen, and enjoy it all. Accept this, find balance, and be happy. ❤🙏✌🌎🌏🌍

Something To Think About / To Be Honest

Focus on YOUR OWN life.

Society, and humanity in general, is so engrossed in other people’s lives. We get caught up in other people’s lives because we’re too scared to deal with our own lives and situations, so we turn to other people and begin to look, point, judge, and be nosy. It’s unecessary and, honestly, quite stupid. Putting your nose in someone else’s business is not gonna help you clean up your act and get your life together. We need to stop comparing. We need to stop comparing ourselves to others and comparing other people to other people. We stay stuck in this same monotonous, boring, unhappy place in life because we are scared to deal with who and what we are and focus on being and becoming who we want to be. That leaves us where we are now, doubting, comparing, judging, hurting, ripping and tearing each other to shreds to get the approval of the next messed up person who is just as lost as you are.

We mess up, we like to learn things the hard way sometimes. That can be beneficial and it can detrimental, depending on the situation. But the fact of the matter is that WE ALL NEED TO DEAL WITH OURSELVES. DEAL WITH YOUR LIFE. DEAL WITH WHATEVER YOU’RE GOING THROUGH. DEFLECTING AND TRYING TO IGNORE HELPS NOTHING AND NOONE. IF YOU DON’T LIKE YOUR LIFE CHANGE IT. THE DIRECTION YOUR LIFE GOES IS SOLELY  IN YOUR HANDS. You control your life. YOU are responsible for YOU. It won’t always be easy, you will get hurt, you will mess up, you will fall short, you won’t be able to help or save everybody, thats the way life goes. Get up, dust yourself off, learn from it, get over it, move on. It is SO WORTH IT to, at the very least, TRY to focus on yourself. We are meant to help, share with, live with, and love each other, not live for or through others. Live for you, live for the experience of life. It is wonderful and you deserve to have the best experience possible. That means ups, downs, ins, outs, hard times, easy times, good times, bad times, it’s all a part of the life experience. See what it is front of you, not what you want to see. Ignoring what’s right there is only going to hurt you. Stop believing the lie that just because your life gets hard you have to give up, that you can’t make it, and that you’re not strong enough. This. Is. A. Lie. You don’t have to give up, you can make it, and you are strong enough. Anyone who tells you differently is wrong.

Feel. Everything. Good, bad, beautiful, ugly, happy, sad, frustrated, angry, joyous, hopeful, feel it all. It’s what makes this life so interesting, fun, and worth living. Whenever you’re down, be down, but then pull yourself back up again and continue on. Be positive, have faith. Through it all, know the truth that you are loved.
Live and love without holding back.

Something To Think About

What’s Your Legacy?

What message do you want to leave behind? Many of us do not think of these things, these small things that are a part of the grande picture of life. I really do believe that it is important to know and put into action what legacy you wish to leave behind. The truth is that every single person leaves a legacy. Every person may not be remembered, but the way they lived and the message they gave when they lived, that lives on through the others they encountered.  It is the same for us all. Find and know your message, then share it. Let your message be a message of love, care, kindness, goodness, and happiness. Your message is whatever you want it to be. Plus, you never know who and how your legacy will impact another beautiful life.

My Legacy:

I don’t want to be remembered, I want the way I lived to be remembered. I want the goodness that I show, the kindness I share, the giving that I do, the love I share with and for all, and the happiness that I have to be my legacy so that it will inspire others to do the same, long after I have gone. I want to leave the message that Love conquers and rules all. I want people to know that no matter what, we are together in this life and we are here for each other. This Earth is unique and a precious, precious gift. It is as much a part of us as we are of it and we need to cherish and love it as much as we cherish and love ourselves and each other.
