Eventually you reach a point where you don’t feel obligated to defend yourself against anyone trying to bring you down or deliver drama to your world. It also grows much simpler to just let things go, cut people off, continue your journey instead of engaging in unneeded negativity. Be observant, remain vigilant, people who change up on you without explanation or communication likely were never on your team to begin with.
You can live your entire life waiting for something to become what you want it to be, only to find out it wasn’t meant to be. You can attempt to force love into a situation that isn’t built to support it. You can give up on your own happiness just to be content with what is already in place. You can make excuses to stay, make excuses to leave, make excuses as to why you can’t move on but in the end you’re left with nothing but regret chasing behind those excuses. You deserve what you want and what you need. Stop waiting for something or someone to change or become what it is you seek. If they were about your joy, it would already have come to fruition. Don’t waste your years, your time, your life on people and situations that don’t fit in your plan, progress and future. Do not fear the uncertainty that accompanies change. You have a hand in writing your destiny. Invest in what makes your heart warm, in what makes you smile.
Sunday gospel edition
“Love is to conquer self and turn to courtesy. If we could conquer self and turn to courtesy for one day, all below heaven would turn to love. Does love flow from within, or does it flow from others?”
Excerpt From: 551 BC-479 BC Confucius. “The Sayings Of Confucius.”
