YOU CAN’T GIVE UP

You Can’t Give Up

Dear Human

You can’t give up.

You can’t give up on love because others are hateful. You can’t give up on believing in one another because you’ve been let down. You can’t give up on hope because pain came your way. You can’t give up on kindness because some people are cruel. You can’t give up on peace because war surrounds you. You can’t give up on dreams because they don’t always come true.

Life isn’t about everything being in order. Life isn’t about bliss. Life is about learning to live, love, hope and believe in the midst of perfect imperfection.

Life is messy, complicated, confusing and beautiful all at the same time. Life is the single best gift you have ever been given.

You can’t give up.

Love,
Sheri

Being rude is easy

Being rude is easy

 

Being rude is easy. It does not take any effort and is a sign of weakness and insecurity. Kindness shows great self-discipline and strong self-esteem. Being kind is not always easy when dealing with rude people. Kindness is a sign of a person who has done a lot of personal work and has come to a great self-understanding and wisdom. Choose to be kind over being right and you’ll be right every time because kindness is a sign of STRENGTH. ~ Author Unknown

19 Things I’ve Learned in my Life .

Things I’ve Learned in my Life
1. Toxic people will ruin you. They will suck the life out of you. It is so much better to remove them from your life than to carry on a relationship that’s poisonous.
2. It’s okay to want to be alone. You don’t have to go to every party. You don’t have to be with your friends all the time. It’s okay to enjoy your own company.
3. Sometimes you have to put your happiness before others. It’s not selfishness. It’s doing what’s best for you.
4. People leave. Sometimes you will see it coming and most times it will take you by surprise. You can’t avoid it and you can’t change it. All you can do is keep moving forward. They’re in the past for a reason.
5. Don’t think too hard. Ninety nine percent of your problems stem from you over thinking them.
6. Find something to believe in. Whether it be a religion, a cause, or a person, find something that gives you hope. Find something that gives you a reason for living and immerse yourself in it.
7. Eat the brownie, buy the skirt, kiss the boy. Life is too short to deny yourself it’s simplest pleasures.
8. Learn about your family, learn about your past. Root yourself to where you came from. You wouldn’t be here without the people who came before you.
9. Take school seriously. You only get one shot at it, no do-overs.
10. When you find those special people that make you feel completely yourself, hold on to them. They are the rarest of blessings.
11. Stop trying to fix people who broke you.
12. Having a job will not only teach you discipline and responsibility, but also that the majority of the people on this planet are major assholes. But the customer is always right.
13. It feels much better to give than to receive.
14. Think of yourself as a blank canvas. Create whoever you want. The brush is in your hand.
15. You will go through times of sadness that seem like a never ending tunnel. But there is light at the end, I promise. You just have to keep pushing forward.
16. Stop planning your life. Let the current pull you along. Life is so much more enjoyable when you’re the passenger, not the driver.
17. Don’t ever be ashamed of your passions. If it sets a fire in your heart, let the flames grow taller.
18. Trust your instincts. Your brain thinks too much and your heart feels too much, but your gut is always right.
19. No matter what, have hope. There is always hope.

Amazing Things That Would Happen When You Finally Let Go

Amazing Things That Would Happen When You Finally Let Go

 

Sometimes, you have to let go before you can move forward.

All of us must decide, at various points over the course of our lives, whether or not to let go of something or someone that is making us unhappy. Whether it’s a toxic partner, an unhealthy job, or an irredeemable friendship, there are times when you have to let go and move on.

If you have recently taken the brave step of letting go of a situation or individual that was doing you no favors, congratulations! Your life is about to seriously improve. Here’s how and why.

Your True Self Can Re-emerge

Staying in an unhealthy situation, such as a destructive relationship, can change you — and not for the better. Toxic relationships and job roles have a habit of forcing us to bend our personalities, dreams, and desires out of all recognition just to keep the peace. When you give yourself permission to leave, your real self can re-emerge once more. Your life will feel more authentic.

The Feeling Of Freedom Will Be Immense

Sometimes, you don’t realise just how trapped you have been feeling until you let go. For instance, you may have stayed in an unfulfilling friends group for years, just from habit or fear of being unable to find new friends. When you allow yourself to admit that such situations are not benefitting you psychologically, a huge weight will be lifted. You may feel nervous at first, but you will feel free!

You Will Have Space For Your Old Passions

Worrying about the same situation or relationship on a daily basis is very time consuming and energy draining. You will be pleasantly surprised by how much space will open up in your life for old interests and passions once you remove yourself from a toxic or unhelpful situation.

You Will Reconnect With Your Friends

Not only will you have more time for old passions when you let go of whatever or whoever it was that was holding you back, you will also find yourself more likely to engage with the most important aspects of your life. This includes your friendships.

The time and effort you were previously expending on fretting about that which you have now let go of can be channeled into strengthening connections with old friends as well as expanding your social group to include new people.

Your Personal Productivity Will Skyrocket

Letting go is empowering. In doing so, you demonstrate to yourself that you are competent, can make positive decisions, and have your own best interests at heart. This, combined with your newly freed-up energy, will boost your productivity both at home and at work. Your self-image will get a drastic upgrade!

You Can Look Forward To The Future

Once you have stopped devoting precious mental resources to analysing an unhealthy situation or individual, you can start to look proactively towards the future. Rather than ruminating on what has been and gone, you will start to think about the glorious possibilities that await you.

One Day, You’ll Forget What You Were Holding Onto

It may seem hard to believe at the beginning, but in time you will truly move on from whatever it was that was holding you back. Letting go is an emotionally fraught process — especially if the relationship, job, or other cause of your difficulties was a major part of your life or identity. It is important to realise that learning to let go is one of the most important life skills you can master. Once you have the ability to identify unhealthy elements in your life and to move on, you will have taken a vital step towards maximising your health and fulfilling your potential.

I want to forgive myself

I want to forgive myself

 

I want to forgive myself for not always reaching for the stars, for being fragile, for unnecessary guilt, for blaming myself for my misery, for striving for unattainable perfection, for turning against myself, for closing my heart to myself and to others, for rehashing hurtful accusations others made against me, for trying to anticipate everything, for hating myself sometimes In short, I want to forgive myself, for I am human, I am not perfect. And through my mistakes is how I learn, and through forgiveness I will learn to love myself.

TRUE POWER IS RESTRAINT

True Power Is Restraint

 

You will continue to suffer if you have an emotional reaction to everything that is said to you. True power is sitting back and observing everything with logic. TRUE POWER IS RESTRAINT. If words control you that means everyone else can control you. Breathe and allow things to pass.

You can conquer anyone and anything.

You Can Conquer Anyone

 

No matter what, once in your life, someone will hurt you. That someone will take all that you are, and rip it into pieces and they won’t even watch where those pieces land. But through the breakdown, you’ll learn something about yourself. You’ll learn that you are strong. And no matter how hard they destroy you, that you can conquer anyone and anything.

Not everyone whom desires access to your life,

Not everyone whom desires access to your life,

 

Not everyone whom desires access to your life, your heart, and your spirit are worthy of the access they seek. Protect it. Your time is your most valuable asset. By all means give it to those whom will appreciate it. But to continuously allow yourself to be used and suffer through other’s actions, you’re doing no one any justice. Take care of you first so that you can take care of your purpose and be all that you were meant to be. Then you will be able to be there for others.
