There are two things parents should give their children: roots and wings. Roots to give them bearing and a sense of belonging, but also wings to help free them from constraints and prejudices and give them other ways to travel (or rather, to fly)." – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
Never sign any contract or agreement that you don't understand e.g job offer, tenancy agreement, business contract, freelance or side-gig agreement, etc. Get a lawyer or somone more experienced to explain things to you.
Here’s a key, pulling someone else down will never make you rise higher. Let’s be people that celebrate success, that learn from those that are ahead, that honor people that have been blessed.
Upgrading yourself mentally, physically, and spiritually changes who you’re around, what you attract, and where you end up. Self-love and self-work is the start of lasting change. Commit to getting better today and never looking back.
Never ever grow tired of living your life. Never ever quit on moving forward. Never ever stop running. For you never know how many people are looking up to you and see you as their inspiration in their own lives. Keep moving… Your life matters.
The winds, the storms, the challenges, they’ve done all they could to stop you, but you’re still standing. Things are about to change in your favor; negative situations are about to turn around; what you’ve been praying for is on the way.
Are you your own worst enemy? Are you defeating yourself, limiting your dreams, sabotaging your relationships, all because you don’t like yourself? You have enough people and circumstances against you; don’t be against yourself.
Prioritize your mental health. The people you lose from setting healthy boundaries are not your losses, but your gains, because they are only meant to be with the unhealthy version of you.
You don’t have to impress people to feel good about yourself. You don’t have to outperform, be more successful. Don’t look to the left or to the right. Focus on what you’re called to do.
Some people talk to you so they can talk about you. Be private and stop telling them more than they need to know.
Sharing vulnerability with another is a way we open our heart, show trust. But if your feelings gets judged or characterized negatively, they’ve made it about them. Sharing with the wrong person hurts. Don’t take that on. Let your heart learn from this and compassionately redirect.
Take the pressure off. Your destiny is not contingent on people liking you. Their approval is not keeping you from your purpose. You don’t have to prove to them that you’re good enough. You’re already good enough. Be confident in who God made you to be.
Please stop believing that everyone has to like you or agree with you. They don’t. And you’re going to be ok if they don’t. Believe that. Believe in you and your journey. It’s unique, it’s yours, and not everyone will, or needs to understand it. You are uniquely, beautifully you.
Reviewing every once in a while: relationships, perspectives, beliefs, biases, daily habits (including what you eat, drink, consume, listen to, watch, buy, and do), is the way to conscious, empowered living. Step out of any programs not meant for you and choose what’s truly for you.
