Don’t let people define you. I don’t care how bad a mistake it is you made, it all depends on how well you handle it afterwards and when you plan. Every single person has a life of their own—not everyone understands and that’s alright, you can’t expect everyone to. Some say it’s easier to be alone, to simply not get caught up in feeling anything…but that’s the whole reason for living. It’s not about money, nor is it about how many people love you. It’s about how you feel about yourself, how you fix something if you’ve broken it, how you handle awkward moments, the way your eyes light up when you talk about something you love. Cheesy, yes, but all the little details about you, are what make up a person’s life. It’s important not to judge people right off the bat or based off of other peoples opinions. Always trust your gut instinct, no matter what. And if you happen to be deceived by someone you thought was good, go ahead and feel bad about it but get right back up afterword’s and show them what you’ve got. It’s important to remember that every single person has a story, a life of their own and while it may be completely different than yours, that doesn’t make them any less important nor does it make another person’s opinion any better. Every single person you meet, has a story. Try to understand people have their own stories, maybe along the way you loved someone you shouldn’t have, or maybe you even took a chance on something you thought would be alright and it didn’t work out, but at least you can say you tried. And if life so happens to push you down, please, get back up, brush it off, and know that you aren’t a horrible person (unless your morals are a bit iffy, then I would suggest taking a look in the mirror and evaluating your life). Also, stereotypes aren’t always right. There are so many different factors that go into making decisions, its important to look at all points of view and try to put yourself in others shoes…but remember no matter how hard you try to understand someone or something you will never fully understand it because you simply aren’t them. And people make mistakes, whether you like to admit it or not, everyone makes mistakes– you yourself have made a mistake that you regret, I bet on that; at least one. It’s important to remember that when life seems like it can’t get any better, that’s when it does; when life seems like it can’t get any worse, that’s when it does. But, please, also remember that when things get difficult that only means that something great is coming your way. Things happen when you least expect them and in the times when you think absolutely nothing can perk up your day or whatever is troubling you. It’s funny too, because sometimes when things or even people aren’t there for you, someone else is. It’s crazy, I know, to think that everything happens for a reason, but in all honesty I personally believe it all does. Every single moment in your life, whether it be good, bad, awkward, fantastic and treacherous, has led you to be the person you are now and I hope you’re proud of that person. If not, then know that it won’t always be like this and it doesn’t always have to be like this because better things are coming and there are so many doors in the world. It just takes one person to finally say, okay, time to shine—and that person is you.
Moral of this post:
When one door closes, another one opens.
Sometimes things happen at the wrong time but for the right reasons.
There is good and bad in everything but it’s all worth it in the end.
Don’t be afraid to go after what you love, whether it be a dream, a person, a random risk; at least you can say you tried.
If you think something isn’t making you happy or causing you stress, get that thing out of your life and do/be what makes you happy always.
Lastly, just a bit of a random note:
Make a wish on 11:11, you never know, it could come true. 🙂
