I’ve learned in life that you take the good with the bad. Decisions we make may not all be positive, there will be some goodand bad to them. We have to make our own individual choices based on what’s best for us.
There are multiple stories of people who had hatred in their for people in the past and these individualized the error of their ways. They began to understood that unnecessary hatred is wrong and they learned from their past. I believe it is important to not crucify people who have made mistakes in the past, especially when they have learned from them and realized they were wrong. In my opinion, these people can redeem themselves and should be able to do so. Other people can also learn from their experiences. Please understand that people can change and often do.
I wrote a few days ago about having compassion for other people. I definitely want to reinforce this point. We should have empathy and compassion to help others. However, we must also realize that we can’t be their savior. Ultimately, they have to hold up their end. If they are not willing to help themselves, they will never be self-sufficient.
Do not allow your own life to become wrecked because you constantly help other people. Realize that you are important too. In fact, you should always take care of yourself first, before anyone else. Have empathy, but also hold people accountable.
Always remember to take care of yourself.
If you’re always thinking about it, it is probably something important to you.
You’ll have good days and bad days. Don’t let the bad days outshine the good ones.
Considering some of the events as of late, I wanted to write a note to remind people that it’s important to have compassion for others. I don’t like to get political on this site, however, with the recent shutdown, many people who were essentially collateral damage, went without pay and this caused them to have to turn to charity, seek shelter other than their own homes, lose or have delays on certain benefits andmany other issues. Once again, I am not going to get into the causes of this whole shutdown, nor do I really want to hear your opinions about it. There are many political shows out there across all spectrums and most of you also have your own personal forums to express your ideas.
I am simply here to remind everyone to please have compassion for others. While hearing about the struggles that certain government employees were going through amidst the shutdown, several people opened up their hearts and their wallets. There has been an outpouring of support to help individuals who were innocent victims in this whole situation. Unfortunately, there was also a lot of judgement and negativity. People were making statements like, “Well, why didn’t they have money saved up?” Or “They are loosing everything in less than a month?”. The worst one of all, “Whomever voted for this president deserves what happens to them!” Sorry, we can’t predict the future.
While I 100% agree that people need to prepare as best they can for unforeseen situations in life and that people need to be held accountable for their decisions, I also want people to consider a few things. We often don’t know what a person is dealing with. They or someone they love may have a severe medical condition. They have have just started their jobs and are working on creating some savings for themselves. They may have been laid off and started a new job once more. There may be extenuating circumstances we are unaware of. For the people who are in their position due to poor life decisions, this can be a wonderful opportunity for a true learning experience. They can learn from the mistakes they made and are realizing now to help improve decision making skills in the future. We can also do our part to help them get back on their feet and help them restart their life. If you don’t have the resources or desire to do so, at least consider all aspects of their story.
My my point is that we can hold people accountable in life, while still showing compassion.
Dedicate a certain amount of time everyday towards your goals. Even if it’s just a small amount of time. You will still make progress.
What images inspire you in your mind to go after your goal.
What happens from 9-5, during regular work hours, is important. What happens during 5-9, is equally as important. What are you doing during these times to enhance your life.
I can’t wait on other people to bring me success. I have to go out and get it myself.
