Stop lying yourself about “I don’t have the time”. Thinking you don’t have time prevents you from taking Chances. It allows you to put the important stuff off until you really don’t have time. If something is important to you, you should try to make time for it.
Just changing the way you think about things is beneficial. Merely thinking about something important that’s worth spending time on can encourage you to actually get it done.
Most of the time we humans hold ourselves back from pursuing our dreams because we care about the people who hurt us & moreover we consider their words in a negative emotional way. Let me talk about both and why so!!
How many times you thought “My dreams are impossible!!”. If your goals/dreams are practical/realistic enough to be pursued, never give up on them. It’s only you who knows own strengths & weaknesses. Don’t let someone else’s negative experience stop you from going after what you want. Follow your heart and take risks, don’t stick with the safe and easy choices just because you’re afraid of taking a leap of faith. Your dreams are not impossible and they should be bigger than your fears. Sticking to your vision will eventually beat to progress and yield the results you desire.
Sometimes we do feel “I am stuck with people who hurt me”. Never entertain those who walk over your sanity. Your life is precious and too short not to look out for yourself. Have enough self-respect & self-love to distance yourself from those who constantly mistreat you and bring you down. It may be tough and hurt for a while but everything will be ok, more importantly you’ll be ok. Walking away from a bad situation doesn’t make you weak, it makes you strong. Leaving means acknowledging that it’s not about them seeing your worth, but you realizing your own worth.
Life is somewhat like EMAIL. For important positive things/friends & admirers, there is an INBOX. For everything that’s negative or abusive, there is a SPAM folder. Now it’s completely upto you whether you want to open that spam folder or let it delete itself within 30days automatically.
It’s always more important what you give, not what you ask for. We all have spares in our lives, extra clothes, extra shoes, extra money, extra food, extra unused time, extra dullness surrounding own mental health. I mean we always have enough to give away whether it’s a material things or positive/negative emotions. We often have enough LOVE to share with other people.
As hard it may sound, most of our giving is not an act of generosity. What we give are mere excesses/extras. But we glorify it by calling it GENEROSITY. What makes it even more questionable is what we expect in return? It’s natural for us to expect equal reciprocation when we give. Balance is the name of life.
We need to give without expecting any return, when it’s LOVE. Expecting what we give as return means, taking back we gave. People start thinking so much about self respect & inflated ego. In the mix they forget what they really are. Stop measuring what you give & start forgiving before starting to forget. When you give, take nothing except the satisfaction of making someone HAPPY.
