Everybody has a home team: It’s the people you call when you get a flat tire or when something terrible happens. It’s the people who, near or far, know everything that’s wrong with you and love you anyways. These are the ones who tell you their secrets, who get themselves a glass of water without asking when they’re at your house. These are the ones who truly believe whatever you own partly belongs to them. These are the people who cry when you cry. These are your people, your middle-of-the-night pal, no-matter what other people think. FRIENDS COME AND GO, LIKE THE WAVES OF THE OCEAN, BUT THE TRUE ONES STAY, LIKE AN OCTOPUS ON YOUR FACE.
These few lines are dedicated to my mates who stood by my side & proved there’s something called “TIME-TESTED EQUATIONS”. Frank, Adam, Daria, Lucy, Karo, Chrissi, Emy & DEMI, thanks for wishing your TAP & joining my tiny celebration. I don’t have anything but gratitude & respect to offer you. I started a tiny health supplement business on 17-Sep-17 with a hope to promote healthy living & eating choices. Raised it like my first child & today my baby turned 4 years old. I wanted to celebrate this day little wilder, little more banter, but whatever comes with a smile is accepted. You own a huge chunk of my head & heart, ALWAYS. Everyday is a small step towards a becoming a better human. I am forever grateful. Love outta respect.
I am a good boy since i was 3 years old🤞. Anyone from my family or friends who saw bit too much sass in my snapchat stories, blame my bestie DEMI’s 🍑 & cheap Ryanair flight tickets. SORRY DEMI.🤪
Be the person who cares. Be the person who makes the effort. Be the person who loves without hesitation. Be the person who bares it all. Be the person who never shies away from the depth of their feeling, or the intensity of their hope. Be the person who believes in the softness of the world, in the goodness of other people, in the beauty of being open and untethered and trusting. Be the person who takes the chance. Be the person who refuses to hide. Be the person who makes people feel seen. Be the person who shows up.
Trust me when I say – be the person who cares. Because the world doesn’t need any more carelessness, any more disregard; because there is nothing stronger than someone who continues to stay soft in a world that hasn’t always been kind to them.
The universe will keep handing you the same lessons, same failures, the same relationships, the same type of love and the same type of pain until you realise that the common denominator is you.
Until you are finally tired of your own patterns. Until you finally love yourself enough to raise your standards and believe you are worthy of holding them.
You see the thing is, until you learn to love yourself more, you will continue to accept the love that mirrors how you truly feel about yourself. The answer to everything you desire is within you.
Desires must help you become a better you. Now relax. You’ll end up where you’re supposed to be. Choose consistent truthful people to vibe & shine. Be picky. You glow differently when you have good people with good intentions in your life. (Not my words).
The attitude of “that’s just how I am, take it or leave it” is still a sign of immaturity. As an adult, it’s your responsibility to figure out which of your traits are toxic and are negatively impactful towards other people and the ones you love, and to eventually learn how to fix them.
At some point, we all gotta start making ourselves better individuals. If you truly believe you don’t have to change anything about yourself, even at the very least the worst in you, and that people will just have to deal with it. Then sorry, you’re still a child.
People need to learn that their actions do affect other people. So be careful what you say and do, it’s not always just about you. MATURITY DOESN’T MEAN AGE. IT MEANS SENSITIVITY, MANNERS AND HOW YOU REACT.
Don’t worry about what people think of you or about the way they try to make you feel. If people want to see you as a good person, they will. If they want to see you as a bad person, absolutely nothing you do will stop them. Ironically, the more you try to show them your good intentions, the more reason you give them to knock you down, because they know they’ve got a part of you that will care about what they do.
Keep your head up high and be confident in what you do. Be confident in your intentions and keep your eyes ahead instead of wasting your time on those who want to drag you back by not caring or by caring the wrong way. Because you can’t change people’s views, you have to believe that true change for yourself comes from within you, not from anyone else. At the end, it’s all about your understanding of own intentions & their importance in your life’s timeline. TIME is non-refundable, use it with right intention. You must believe, and you must have faith that time itself is much more able to prove your point than you are. (Not my words).
I may regret many things: Decisions I made. Decisions I didn’t make. Feelings I expressed. Feelings I suppressed. People I loved. People I rejected. People I respected. People I neglected. People I listened to. People I confided in. Promises I made. Promises I believed. Questions I asked. Answers I gave. Words I said. Words I didn’t say.
At the end reflecting is essential, but regret should not ground you in the past. It should make you grateful that you have a conscious mind that realizes what is right and wrong. It should give you strength to wisely use your present to make your future better. It should free you. If you don’t stop judging yourself, putting yourself down, believing that this is as good as you can be, then you’ve closed doors for yourself before they even appear in front of you. You’ve become a slave of your past & you aren’t allowed to. Don’t expect to be who you want to be without being true to yourself and believing in yourself. If you don’t believe in yourself, don’t expect anyone to believe in you. If you don’t see the best in yourself, don’t expect anyone to see the best in you. When you close a door; do you expect back and stare at it and say, “I can’t leave because this door is still closed in front of me”? Think about it. Take small steps consistently, but with good vibe & high energy. Be True to Yourself.
No one gets to decide who you are except you. Period. No one gets to tell you how capable you are or who you can become. People will undoubtedly talk and give their opinions like they know something you don’t. And some people will not believe in you simply because they view the world from a lens of impossible.
But it’s you who gets to decide who to believe. You can believe the discouraging teacher or the pessimistic friend, or you can believe the little voice inside you that knows you are made for more, the voice inside you that believes in you & pushes you further.
Most of us humans suffer from something called “Black and white thinking” also known as polarized thinking. This is an all-or-nothing mindset that things happen either all the way or not at all. When extremes become the norm, you’ll start to think that there are only two outcomes to any situations wild success or terrible failure.
You might start to believe that people are either all good or all bad or that they must be either a loyal friend or an enemy. This cognitive distortion is completely unrealistic. It erases all gray areas or spectrums and leads you to believe things that are often untrue. Reality doesn’t exist in extremes and seeing it like that is unfair to yourself and others.
