When looking back to all these years, I felt like I was treading through treacle. I have laughed, smiled, cried and winced as I tripped down memory lane. I felt like I was standing in a large cine theater watching someone else’ life, yet, it was mine. What have I learned throughout this lengthy process? I have learned that I finally like me just as I am. You see as I flipped through the photos of my life I saw I had never been to me I was only a shadow of the woman I am created to be. I also saw over recent years I have filled the hurt and voids with so many unnecessary things, which left me constantly feeling overwhelmed. As I let go, the tears may have flowed but a simple truth remained the things most precious to me are not mere things but my family and friendships and these cannot be stored or collected but require daily connection and appreciation. The clutter will never replace our basic human need to be valued and appreciated and share the love we came to earth with. I feel much lighter and more focused on loving those I am blessed to have in my life.
They specialize in creating world chaos and human division
By spying on us most of the time with or without our permission.
They love using the mass media to serve us up us daily dose of fear and ignorance
So, they can reap all the benefits of locking us up in some of their most profitable mental and spiritual prisons.
They are the main reason why we have so much conflict about race and religion.
The main goal of the game is always to keep us under control and influence our most important decisions
So that every response we give will just get us upset enough to fit right into their personal political agendas.
The illusion of freedom is the number one tool they use to water down all our efforts of revolution or resistance.
They know that we can never win this chess game in spite of all our best intentions
Not until we are willing to raise our consciousness to a much higher position
That would fully free our conscious minds and bring a revolution to end the system
(I’ve been inactive since couple days since there are huge demonstrations and protests erupted in my country to topple the sectarian and corrupted regime. I don’t know whether we will succeed or not, for the first time in my life I have a hope (even if it is a tiny hope) that we can change our country to a better one)
And then one day it all makes sense…the times where there was doubt, the times of uncertainty…the times of pain. Because one day you figure it out, what makes you tick, what drives you and what you truly want from life. And then you let go of all that holds you back. You stop giving the power to others and make a decision. That now is your time.
One day it all makes sense and you commit to live the life you deserve!
Relationships have been replaced with “talking”. Which consist of pointlessly texting and a random phone call here and there. People text or “talk” merely to fill a void when they get bored. Commitment is a rare thing to find. Date nights really don’t exist much anymore. Chivalry is pretty much a thing of the past. There’s no more opening the car’s door for her or going to the front door to pick her up for a date. Today’s society cheating has been accepted way more than it should be and people classify it as a mistake. Since it is accepted more people continue to go back to the same person that has cheated on them repeatedly. (Albert Einstein defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results) Feelings don’t really matter anymore and it’s became a hurt someone before you get hurt kind of world. Cheating or crossing the line has become way too easy with social media. People don’t put in the effort that it takes to keep a relationship healthy or work. When things get tough people give up. Relationships have lost its value over the years and they aren’t how they are supposed to be anymore. To the girls that say there aren’t any good guys left in the world, maybe you should reevaluate the kind of guys you pursue. To the guys that can’t find a good girl, I can guarantee that you aren’t looking in the right places.
Sometimes people allow their past hurts to keep them down, the he said, she said, he did, she did to stop you from progressing. But no one really stops you from being great, from having more, from being more other than yourself. Okay so that job didn’t work out, that friendship didn’t last, that marriage failed, but now what? What are you going to do in order to keep progressing in life? Never allow your past failures to be who you are now. They were obstacles that you overcame. As long as you allow your past to dictate your current and future situation you will always be stuck. Get out there and prove everyone wrong, get out there and make it happen, get out there and get your own. Don’t stay bitter and angry…don’t allow your past to control your happiness. Because while you are focused on the people who hurt you, guess what. ..they are LOVING life.
If you feel like giving up when doors keep closing in your face, when you have been treated unfairly when things seem precarious, when the good things you do turn out wrong, when others let you down when you needed them and the reasons could go on and on. Just remember all those disappointments can be turned around, I myself have faced some similar situations with next to little or no help at all. I used the disappointment to fire me up to prove not just to myself but those who I felt hurt by that I can still do the things I need and want to do with or without them
So, no matter what you’re going through how hard things may seem you still have a choice give up and do nothing or stand up for yourself and do the very thing that others are trying to stop and put you off doing. Just work twice as hard for yourself to get what you need and want
It takes courage to face the things that make you feel a sense of fear; fear of things not working out fear of having money problems; fear of doing things alone, etc . All those fears are just floating in your mind and can be dispelled with positive actions. So be careful not to let your fears and disappointments put you off what you need to do; and don’t give up on yourself because of others or situations not going how you wanted them to, stay positive and keep doing what you need to do to better yourself.
For those who don’t know the full extent of what depression is… it is not an emotion that manifests only when circumstance presents an unfortunate causation, to then fleet away when the cause and circumstances change. It is the occurrence of unbalanced chemical activity in the brain which may spark sudden and unexpected severe mood changes that do not warrant cause or circumstantial stimuli. However, cause and circumstance can worsen the effect of depression. So the next time you see a friend or loved one hurting in a depressive state, don’t ask them “what’s wrong?” or “what happened?”.
Instead, probe to find out what you can do to make them feel better. Ask them if they would like to build a hidden fortress out of blankets, ask them if they’d like to help you demolish a bucket of ice cream while you tell them fun stories or memories. Be a friend… not just another face in the crowd who doesn’t try to understand.
