To the abandoned: cry if you must but after that, pick yourself up. Yes, being separated from someone you love or being left without a word is traumatizing but it is not the end of your world. Whether it is a break up or death of a loved one, do not let the pain of chronic loss eat you alive. Living with the fear of abandonment is like a living hell and you are missing the good things around you because of this negative behavior.
As we grow up, we realize that everything in this world is temporary. When seasons change, people change as well. When lives are lost, new ones are born. And when one door closes, another opportunity knocks.
But even if people and things come and go, do not think for a second that your life is not worth living. Whatever happens, there is so much life can offer beyond your expectations.
I know you’re at the park right now, taking photos of the surroundings and selfies with your brightest smile. But you can’t hide from me. I know what’s going on; I know how you feel.
I know you’re bruised because you keep on expecting that one day, this person will treat you as good as the way you treat them. You know you can’t put the blame on anybody else because that’s who you are and what you do. That’s how you value and give time to people around you.
You make them a part of your priorities and yet, you end up being hurt.
People with good hearts are pleased with the happiness and success of others.
Whether you are given credit for a job well-done, promoted, or simply celebrating something, they sincerely congratulate you for all your ideas and achievements. They never get jealous or any ill feelings towards you, even when life favors you over them. For them, there is no room for competition because it will just attract negative vibes. You will be amazed how they are able to celebrate with you your victory as if it were their own, and will never run out of compliments for you.
People with good hearts prioritize others even if they have to set their needs aside.
They do not mind giving a large chunk of their time because they are gladdened in giving you company. Every time they lend a helping a hand, it leaves them with a good feeling and you can see it on their faces. When you need someone to listen to your rants, they will come running and never get tired of your stories. Even though at times you do not need them, they still sit by your side and offer their time.
Let yourself be happy.
Life is short, so do not make it shorter by fretting over things that sabotage your happiness. There are things beyond our control, like people who cannot love us back, and dreams that seem so far away, but these harrowing experiences do not mean your story is over. Break the toxic pattern of thinking that hinders you from being happy at your present state. Happiness is in your hands and it is boundless. Live every moment with a happy heart, even if you slip or stumble because this will mold you into a better, stronger version of yourself.
