We all have had at least that one person that we don’t “like”.  No matter what they do, we try to find something to justify what they are doing is wrong.  Unless you are a peace-loving person who advocates “turn the other cheek”, it often proves difficult to not have that immediate and overwhelming impulse to seek “justice”, even if what they have done or said was not meant to be an attack.  When we have set our biased opinions and judgement on that person, we retaliate despite their innocent intentions.  We incessantly wear tinted glasses and measure their worth with our rulers and scales.  When we have set a standard for this person we “dislike”, nothing they do is right, because they can never meet our standard.  And even when they do, we twist their actions and words and fabricate stories to fill in the missing, yet crucial, pieces of the puzzle to assume the worst about them.  But experience shows that we don’t know everything about everyone.  That kind of mindset will get us nowhere.  In fact, that kind of mindset speaks volumes about the kind of person we are - how narrow-minded we can be.

We can be proud, but we cannot be arrogant and conceited.  We can be obstinate, but we cannot be stubborn and ignorant.  It is a universal struggle that anyone can relate to.  We can either choose to see the dark cloud or the sunshine; the bad or the good.  The choice is none but yours.

#quote  #personal  #life  

Let go of relationships that do not serve you. That means negative people, dishonest people, people who don’t respect you, people who are overly critical and relationships that prevent you from growing. You can’t grow as a person, if you don’t have people in your life who want to grow with you.

Happiness is the result of a decision to be happy. You may believe that you will someday arrive at a place called happiness, that someday everything will fall into place and you will be able to say: ” Great, here i am. I’ve made it to the happiness land.” Obviously, this is isn’t going to happen. Regardless of how good your life gets and how many of your dreams come true, you will still have to make the decision to be happy. You will still have to make a commitment. There is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way.

Relax. You will become an adult. You will figure out your career. You will find someone who loves you. You have a whole lifetime; time takes time. The only way to fail at life is to abstain.

One of the greatest tragedies in life is to lose your own sense of self and accept the version of you that is expected by everyone else.

My Career Path

I like to believe that everything happens for a reason, regardless of what it is.  That a breakup will make me grow stronger, more independent, and braver.  That time and distance away will allow me to begin to see people for who they really are.  That me not getting into my dream PT school will force me to practice my driving and stop squandering opportunities to learn to explore things outside my comfort zone.  But I’ve never quite thought about how my choice of career play a role in my life, until a few days ago during volunteer.

I’ve always believed that I picked my career based on my adamant determination to give back to what society has given me - much like a repayment of thanks.  When I was working with a patient while providing positive reinforcements and feedback, my PT told me afterwards something I haven’t thought about - how to be consoling.  All this time, I’ve only provided encouragement during exercise, but I never tried providing comfort to the patient.  At that moment, I knew what purpose my career has in store for me.

Going into this field is going to teach me how to care for someone wholeheartedly.  To learn how to devote myself to others.  To learn to not only sympathize but also empathize with them.  To selflessly help not only my patients, but also my friends and those I love.  All this while, it has only been about how everything benefits me.  But this time around, it will not just be about me, but it will also be about everyone else.

Title: 04-06-14 Heart to Heart Talk Artist: Best Friend 58 plays


(via staypozitive)

I have been selfish..  Again and again, I’ve hurt those who care about me.  I’ve been so focused on myself that I’ve neglected to see what I have been doing to others.  I’ve been taking my friends for granted.  I keep believing that love is unconditional.. but it isn’t.  For months, I’ve taken their time and love for granted.  I wanted them to be there for me during my toughest and loneliest times, but I’ve been oblivious to what I am doing to them.  I wanted myself to stop hurting, but what I didn’t know was that I have been hurting them..

Yesterday, I was finally rebuked by my best friend, who has done nothing throughout these months but keep me company as much as I needed him to - regardless of the time of day, even if I’ve caused him to sacrifice his limited amount of sleep for me.  He let me abuse him over and over again without asking for anything in return.  I’ve failed to recognize the amount of time I was taking away from him because I was so concentrated on myself and my desire to be happy again.  At some point, people do break and I’ve been negligent.  I’ve committed the same mistake over and over again, and it’s finally hitting me in the face.  

I’ve recorded this phone call without his knowing as a reminder to myself how much pain I’ve caused to the people who are dear to me.. a reminder that I have to reevaluate myself, because it is clear that I have so much to learn.  So much..
