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.
It’s okay if you don’t know what to feel, if you don’t know what you want and if you can’t figure things out as you go. It’s okay to not want something you worked so hard on getting after realizing, it wasn’t what you thought it was. It’s okay to change your mind, to make mistakes, to walk away from someone you once loved-from something that once meant the world to you.
It’s okay because this is your life, your cause, your body, your beliefs, your mind, your heart, and your feelings. You don’t need validation from no one other than you. And I hope it doesn’t take you a lifetime to realize that.
Modern day RELATIONSHIPS are like snapchat filters, everybody got a favourite one while considering to try another one. Take your time, but anker yourself to someone someday where you find your piece of peace. That’s the way to go.
We yearn for connection, yet isolate ourselves. We seek love, but fear loss. We dream for someday, instead of trying for today. We want change, but don’t want to change. We over-consume, then wonder why there’s no space to create. We love the ocean, yet buy plastic. We advocate for education, then bury our students in loans. We want health, but for a price. We believe in equality, but struggle to bridge the gap of inequality. We ask for better leaders, but don’t think to lead. We wish for a better world, but not at the cost of comfort and convenience.
There’s a disconnect here. And it’s not any one persons fault. The world is made up of both beauty and brokenness. Most of the time, I believe we have our hearts in the right place. The problem is how overwhelming it all seems, but change is made up of small moments.
Change happens when we have been hurt, but choose not to act from our hurt. Change happens when we see someone who seems upset, and ask how we can support them. Change happens when we don’t pretend to have all the answers, but are willing to ask the uncomfortable questions.
The truth is, if we knew the whole story behind everyone’s actions, we would see why they are the way they are. And it doesn’t excuse it, but compassion is the birthplace of change. A COMPASSIONATE HEART IS THE KEY TO CHANGE.
Being okay with not being okay does not make things automatically better or changes life instantly. But it does stop you from adding more tension to an already difficult situation. Being okay with not being okay helps you let go of what’s not serving you, what’s actually not yours.
Life is like an echo. What you send out, comes back. What you sow, you reap. What you give, you get. What you see in others, exists in you. Do not judge, so you will not be judged. Radiate positivity and give love. And love will come back to you.
