Confidence comes from knowing your worth. If you think you don’t have anything to offer the world, it’ll show. Get to know yourself, figure out what you’re about, what are your values, what do you stand for, what do you want out of life. Start by thinking good thoughts about yourself then act on those thoughts. It takes a lot of effort and hard work to be positive in world where negativity is encouraged. Dig deep, you can do it.
I refuse to be insignificant anymore. I am great, I am bold and one day I’m going to find someone who accepts me for who I am, who embraces my flaws and who makes my life better every single day. I may only be 22 years old but let me tell you something, the one thing I’ve learned in those short 22 years is that people come and people go and life is too damn short to spend it with people who treat you like your not worth their time.
act deliberately in your good deeds and choose to keep a positive outlook.
so many people in my life have dropped the ball, disappointed me, or came up short when [I thought] I needed them.
and for a long time now I’ve held grudges. I’ve held onto those negative feelings as a reminder of why I choose to rely on myself. as validation for alienating myself from those who I feel have wronged me.
but I’ve only hurt myself and stunted my own growth. I thought I had forgiven those people, and maybe I have, but it’s backwards progress if I’m still allowing the fear of repeated offenses to keep me in my same position. people fuck up. people make mistakes, and sometimes people hurt you (whether intentionally or not), and you have to move past that. you have to continue to see the good in those that you’ve had bad experiences with bc sometimes, they need that support that they couldn’t, or chose not to offer you.
everyday is a lesson. I’m choosing to be attentive to that.
God doesn’t give you a spirit of fear. He gives you a spirit of love. He is with you when you walk among the darkest valley. He will fight for you. He is with you wherever you go. There is nothing to be afraid of. He gives you authority to trample on serpents and scorpions. Submit to the Lord, resist the devil, and he will flee from you. The holy spirit inside you is stronger than this world and everything in it. God will strengthen you, everything is possible with him.
I’m in this amazing place in my life where I know exactly what I want. And regardless of my decisions to compromise, my conscience won’t allow me to settle.
it’s beautiful, especially now that I have have clarity about what I will and won’t accept in my life.
if it doesn’t feel right, don’t do it
if deep down you don’t trust him, don’t deal with him
if it’s early and you’re already having major problems, let it go
if there are signs that he’s not the one, don’t ignore it
do not waste time on people that are not fruitful to your life
life is too short
You must learn to trust God’s timing. You can be sure that right now, God is arranging all the pieces to come together to work out His plan for your life. He has been working in your favor long before you encountered the problem. Don’t grow impatient and try to force doors open. Don’t try to make things happen in your own strength. The answer will come, and it will be right on time.
My life improved so much once I learned this lesson.
Agreed. Life becomes so much better.
hence why i am on the outside of hers
Words of wisdom from Amy Poehler
sometimes things like this just really resonate with you.
the goal is to love myself more fully. more passionately. more forgivingly.
I want to learn to give myself what I need, without explanation. if it is for the good of my body, mind, heart, or soul, it is imperative to treat myself.
