When trying to deal with a past bad relationship. Sometimes you have to forget a person’s existence and let them become a faded picture.
It’s not to be mean or spiteful. It is for your own peace of mind. You cannot make someone’s love for you be real or them to be what you expect them to be.
You have to allow them the time to realize that the mistake they made isn’t something that they can just fix and they must live with their regret. Whether they ever admit it to other or not. It will be something they cannot lie to themselves about and will live with.
Sometimes the puzzle pieces don’t fit no matter how much you try to force them to.
It’s when you step back and look at the puzzle and realize that the piece you are trying to make fit. May be owned by someone else and you are holding on to something keeping you from your missing piece.
You know about one of those random people and their acts that just make your day? Something like that happened to me. Yesterday I was in the store trying to choose between two identical products, but I really was just standing there lost in my thoughts blocking the entire aisles. This old man trying to come through stopped to say hi, and made his way between my cart, my thoughts, and I.
I don’t know how much time elapsed, but he eventually came back through the aisle were I was still standing staring at the same items… Or at life.
He asked me if I was deciding, and somehow he woke me up. I tried to answer but I couldn’t get a word out. Just nodded my head in half a smile. I must have been carrying the misery of the world on my face because he stood there with me for a minute and gave me a warm smile that translated to me as : “Everything will be ok child”. He dug in his pocket and handed me a handful of candy… (I am grown enough to accept candy from stranger.)
He brought tears to my eyes and warmed my heart.
What made me happy is that, at times when you think that everything is going bad and nothing good is left in the world, you see these little acts of kindness and a little faith in humanity is restored.
One simple act of kindness or humanity could mean the world to somebody
I can only imagine a world where people understand that no matter what color you are, we all bleed red. That we all have feelings. We all crave to be loved. That every single one of us only has a short time on this Earth so every moment must be considered as precious. That one of the true beauty’s of life is embracing the different cultures and learning from them. A world where no one has an ill-conceived entitlement that they are superior or inferior to anyone else. Raise your children right. Raise them with a hope that they are going to embrace and learn every culture that this world has to offer as they grow up. Make it something that they look forward to, and not something they are scared of. Together, we can make this a better world . No president or leader is going to do that. It starts with us. It starts with YOU!
It’s surprising how people blindly follow. How deeply they hail their political idols. How desperately they need something like religion to justify their life.
Honestly, if you would have leaded and treated yourself right, you wouldn’t have to be a mere follower. You wouldn’t have to die and kill others like fanatics. If only you would have embraced realism and logic, the way you turn head over heels for your religion and political parties, things would have been different, things would have been better.
Every circumstance in life has the potential to be a learning experience. If you are open to it, life has a way of changing you. Every second you can change. Change the way you think. Change the way you view the world. Change the way you live. Change the way you treat others. You can always choose to change for the better or to change for the worst. It is all a choice. With those choices, come the repercussions and rewards. Whether good or bad, every experience is a lesson that you can allow to affect you in a positive or a negative way.
Most of us have very busy lives, but let us not forget that there are human beings on this Earth that are struggling to live.
As you are eating your lunch, keep in mind those who are starving. As you put your child to sleep, think of the parents who are crying and wishing to see their children awake again. As you sit peacefully in your house, think of the fear and horror that are conquering the hearts of families as they hear bombs showering above their roof.
Yes, they live on the other side of the planet, but don’t let that distance your heart from having compassion with the struggles of your brothers and sisters. Don’t let the difference in religion, race, or ethnicity build a barrier between you and others. We are all humans.
