We accept the love… we think we deserve

___________

“Life is not about finding ourselves… it is about creating ourselves”… we are not lumps of clay… waiting to be shaped by some invisible potter… on the contrary…we are endowed with the ability to “create” our lives… based on the choices we make… the values we hold… the sum total of our ideas, values and life choices is what shapes us all…

____________

When someone has done us wrong… keeping the anger and disappointment inside just prolongs the hurt… we have to learn to accept the apology when it is offered… in fact… sometimes we have to accept the apology even when it is not offered…

__________

Sometimes it is better to be kind… than it is to be truthful… especially since we can be sure of the benefits of kindness… but can’t always be sure about what the truth is…and what effect the truth might have…

__________

You know you are in a real relationship… when the time comes that you know each other’s faults… and have accepted them… and when you are both trusting and confident enough… to let each other keep some necessary secrets…

__________

Worrying about what other people think… is a waste of time… most of them are too busy with their own lives to have the time to really care about yours… but once in a while… you will find someone who really listens… understands… and cares… about everything about you… hang on to them… they are the ones you have been looking for…

__________

When we face sorrow in life… people tell us to “get over it”… “Let it go…” or “Forget it, move on”… All of this presupposes that when life brings us sadness or pain… we need to get over it as quickly as we can… I disagree… I think sometimes instead of dumping the pain… we ought to embrace it… feel it… allow it to do its job of teaching us about life… When we just “let it go”… we lose the chance to learn it’s lesson…
