Don’t Let Yesterday Take Up Too Much Of Today
Well well well. Our past. Something we all have. One that not everyone is easily or willing and comfortable sharing with others in our society. Yet to completely understandable but not everyone has the logic or wisdom to have the kind of understanding with some kindness to express instead of anything other than that.
But regardless we have to be kind with ourselves and each other. Because once we learn and know how to be kind to ourself, we are more easily able to learn and know how to achieve and gain results of “world peace”. We all want it, but so many of us are too stuck in our own past to look at what’s right in front of us all this time… Let’s do ourselves and each other the favour of opening our eyes and our minds up to new things.
“Don’t be so damn hard on yourself. Yeah, you screwed up. You’re not perfect, fine. Learn from it. But don’t punish yourself. Be kind to you, even when you screw up. You’ll bounce back eventually. You’ll make up for it.” ~ Stephanie Klein
Stephanie is right, we can’t be hard on ourselves for not being perfect, for being human. It’s completely normal to make the same mistake more than 5 times; it’s human, your human; give yourself a break. Make yourself a tea, get comfy and watch a movie or tv episodes on Netflix/CraveTV!
Even if someone chooses to be hard on you, it’s to do with them, it’s not you; it’s also not your fault for how they are treating you. They have chosen how to treat you, so don’t go beating yourself or them up for being human. One other thing is that it’s human to be selfish. Though it’s known that it’s not easy to not be too selfish, or not impossible to pull off. Instead look at it like this: “practice makes better, not perfect”. Perfection and limitations are a killer to one’s mental health and emotional wellbeing. I’ll be covering a new post on that topic next sometime in December this year before 2019, arrives!
There are people out there who want to see you fail, and to look at everything that happened in the past few days, and think “oh well look at how much publicity she got.” And all I could say about that is that none of it is worth spending a second of your life feeling powerless. And if there’s anything that this has taught me, it’s that I can choose not to feel powerless. And I’ll never let that happen again.” ~ Megan Morrison, The Arrangement
