The day is what you make of it. As cliche as it may sound, it is true. If you wake up grumpy, angry, or depressed that is okay. It does not always feel okay, but you are allowed to feel things that don't always feel good. It is the reaction to those feelings that tends to make our day miserable for ourselves.
Don't try to understand people and why they do things. You will drive yourself complete nuts trying to understand them. The best thing you can do is focus on yourself and try to understand you instead.
Don't compare your success to the success of others. Often times it is easier to put ourselves down and compare ourselves to others whether that is our insecurities putting us down or simply our minds.
When it comes to lending a helping hand to someone know that you can't put more work in than the other person. Although you may love and care for a person, you can be there to support them. If you find yourself trying to help someone more than they want to help themself, then maybe it's time to analyze if they actually want to help themself.
Even though this world is tough, miserable, may sometimes seem endless with the amount of troubles in our path, it is just a bad day it is not a bad life.
You can do anything you set your mind to. The only person who can convince you that you can't do anything is yourself.
We have a choice as an adult. We no longer have to live in our hurtful past. Even though it is hard, we can move on from the darkest parts that have ruined us. The past is over, the present is now, and the future is waiting from all of the things we do now to help ourselves.
Getting help does not mean you are crazy. Getting help means you care enough about yourself to reach out to create positive support and learn how to make yourself feel better. Often times people feel crazy or embarrassed for getting help, but I think it is responsible to care for yourself and you deserve that.
Radical acceptance is accepting the things that we cannot change. It means the same thing as the Serenity Prayer. Sometimes we need to take a step back and realize not all things are in our control and the best thing we can practice is to accept those things. A perfect example of this is death and the past. We cannot change those things.
Sometimes things are not always in our control and even though it may seem hard to swallow, we have to practice not always being in control of things.
You are never alone. There is always someone who has gone through what you have, someone who is working through their issues, or simply someone who has it worse than you.
Nobody is perfect. Don't beat yourself down for not being perfect. Don't create standards or expectations that are unreachable. If you do that then you will never succeed. Set the bar at an achievable and meaningful level you know you can accomplish.
Instead of noticing all of your mistakes, try taking a look at all of the things you have done right. Remind yourself of all your accomplishments no matter how big or little. Often times we overlook our growth and beat ourselves up for our little mistakes here and there.
It is okay to feel uncomfortable. If you are doing something outside of your normal self that means you are willing to take a risk to seek change with a different outcome.
Be proud of yourself. This life is not easy if you are reading this I am proud of you and you should be too. You have made it this far don't give up now. You are too pretty and too special.
Love yourself. You deserve to be loved, you deserve life, you deserve the best, you deserve to accomplish everything. If you are reading this you are beautiful, I believe in you, I am proud of you. Stop beating yourself up and pick your head up. I love you for being you.
Continue to put one foot in front of the other. Even if you can't seem to see where you are going the pay off is beautiful. Just know this is not for nothing. It is worth it.
Open your eyes and try to see the beautiful things that cross your path whether that be people, things, nature, situations, etc.
Don't let anyone take advantage of you. Treat yourself like the golden treasure that you are. You are important, special, smart, wonderful, blessed and more. Never be submissive. Learn to be assertive appropriately to get your needs understood and met.
Don't compare other people to other people. Each individual is unique in their own way. If you compare them to others, they will never be who you want them to be and you will be upset left with a failed expectation.
Remember a smile can change someone's life. A simple hi how are you doing can make someone feel noticed. A simple hug can make someone feel loved even for a second. Learning to love yourself can be an example of someone wanting to do the same.
Just remember you are a badass.
You are loved.
You belong here.
You deserve this life.
You are amazing.
You are blessed.
You are beautiful.
You can do this.
I believe in you.
I am proud of you.
Have a blessed day beautiful.
