If you want to be happy in life, then quit worrying about what others say about you. In life you can’t please everybody and not everyone is going to love you. And that’s okay because there are people who are struggling to love themselves. Just do what is necessary to make yourself, and the people you hold dear to you, happy. In the long run that is what matters the most.
Hard times are often blessings in disguise. Let go and let life strengthen you. No matter how much it hurts, hold your head up and keep going. This is an important lesson to remember when you are having a rough day, a bad month or a crappy year.
Truth be told, sometimes the hardest lesson to learn are the ones your spirit needs most. Your past was never a mistake if you learned from it. So take all the crazy experiences and lessons and place them in a box labelled, “Thank You.” (Manisha Shrestha Bundela)
Every day we are faced with making decisions. Sometimes things happen that test us and we allow our emotions to take control of us. We can choose to get offended or angry by what others do. But when we give in to negative emotions, we give others power over us. We must learn to master our emotions and not be controlled by them. If we get distracted by what others say and do, eventually we will lose sight of those goals we wish to accomplish.
You might have tried to get a project off the ground and it didn’t work out. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try again. As Winston Churchill said, “Success is not final and failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts. If you have experienced adversity in your life, don’t let that stop you. Try again. With faith and determination you will succeed.
