Waste Your Time With Jealousy: It’s a useless emotion that disintegrates everything it touches. Know that there is enough to go around and one having does not mean the other will have not. If you’re with someone who is trustworthy, trust them. If you’re not, it’s time to reevaluate your relationship.
Stay In and Cry Over Someone Who Isn’t Crying Over You: We only have so many days and nights in our lives and while you might not want to go out or spend time with friends, it’s the best way to move on and create some fun new memories (and possibly meet someone who won’t bring tears to your eyes).
Forget That We’re All Human Beings: We’re all flawed and have a wide range of talents, insecurities, worries, desires, fears, needs and wants. Some of us just hide our vulnerabilities better than others. When engaging others, try and remember that we’re all spirits in shells trying to do the best we can while here on earth. Be gentle.
Toy With Other People’s Emotions: You’re either in or out, and if you can’t decide, it’s best to stay out.
Allow Fear To Hold You Back: Think of fear as a bully. If you stay silent and allow it to torment you, you’ll be pegged a victim and be pushed around on a daily basis. Stand up to it and punch it square in the face and there’s a good chance you’ll recognize your own strength and send a message to the universe that you’re a fighter who will not allow challenges to keep you from living your best life and being your best self.
Get Stuck in a Moment: You’re going to make mistakes and take wrong turns, and that’s a good thing. How else will you ever grow and learn? Take inventory, make amends, commit to do the better next time and keep moving forward (and up).
Assume You (Or They) Can Read Minds: The only way to avoid miscommunication is to sit with someone and have an honest and open dialogue. It may get messy but there is a good chance it will bring clarity in a way emails, silence or text messages never can.
Put Yourself Down: If you cannot support and respect yourself how in the world can you expect anyone else to?
Take Love/Friendship For Granted: As we grow older, their value becomes clearer. In this life, the bonds with one another are all we have. They are what make life beautiful, meaningful and real. When appreciated, these bonds will not only infuse your own life with joy but help the lives of others blossom. Your legacy lies in how you treat those around you.
Give Up On Yourself: Even if you have hit rock bottom, you can always start climbing back up. Your success is up to you.
