There is so much power in our words, more than we realise. They can do so much good and so much damage. They can create peace or cause people to break out in violence. When we’re hurting the most it’s easy to lash out at other people, but then we become the source of the problem we are personally suffering from. Don’t take your pain out on others or you will just be perpetuating the cycle.
If you’re hurting, do your best to seek outlets that are healthy. Find a friend to talk to, express yourself artistically, write in your journal, or seek professional help.
Words have the power to both destroy and heal. When words are both true and kind, they can change our world. -BUDDHA.
Each one of us is born with a unique and remarkable gift that’s not only meant to change our lives but the greater world around us. I know this to be true because I’ve witnessed it throughout my life. Whatever your strengths are, they may be something that someone else wishes they had. So use your gifts wisely and you will be amazed how much you can inspire others.
You’ll be amazed at what you attract after you start believing in what you deserve. Inspire someone today just by being yourself. The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud. (Not my words.)
We all want to be liked and loved, but when we focus on this instead of making sure we love ourselves first, we get lost in other people’s opinions and we stop living honestly. If someone calls you a name, don’t let it bother you, don’t react. Feeding into their drama will only negatively affect your character.
What makes you special and unique? Think about one of your eccentricities and embrace it every day. When we are consumed by what other people think of us, we allow them to dictate how we live our lives, and then without realizing it, we lose touch with who we are. Respect your individuality. BE YOU.
A lot of people are skeptical about giving a homeless person money. One thing you can do is buy a homeless person a meal or a bottle of water so at least you know they will get something nutritious to eat or drink. Last week i saw a homeless man and remembered that I had a protein bar & a pack of biscuits in my backpack. I went up to him and said, “I don’t want to offend you, but if you’re hungry, I’d love to give this to you.” He reacted like he had won the lottery. I couldn’t believe how something so simple could make him so happy.
Go out of your way to help a homeless person, or someone else in need, today. We lead a busy life without giving enough space to humility & humbleness in our hearts.
Humility is not thinking less of yourself. It’s thinking of yourself less. -C. S. LEWIS.
Just like snowflakes, there is no one else on this planet like you. Don’t waste your time trying to be like other people. Be the best you and own it. You’re best at being yourself, not anyone else. If we all looked, talked, and walked the same, no one would be unique. Individuality wouldn’t exist. Being different is what makes us special and world so exciting.
Assess your character. Be certain that you’re not modeling yourself after someone, but just being who you are meant to be. Go ahead, be weird because “normal” is boring. Always be a first grade version of yourself instead of a second grade version of someone else.
