Just some life lessons.

life isn't about finding yourself, its about creating yourself

Just some life lessons I’ve been thinking about recently.

Just Some Life Lessons

  • Always try to shine bright. When you shine bright you encourage others to do likewise, but be careful of those who insist on standing in the shadows, they’re the ones that are often attracted to your light but can easily put your light out. Protect yourself.
  • Protect your identity, the minute you start letting people close to you mimicking that, you not only run the risk of losing your individuality, but you run the risk of losing yourself completely. Trust me I know. Be you, because no other person is better suited for the job.
  • It doesn’t matter what your mouth says, your eyes always tell the truth.
  • Gym without a healthy diet is counter productive.
  • “TIME decides who you meet in your life. Your HEART decides who you want in your life. But BEAHAVIOUR decides who will stay in your life.”
  • Don’t let people take you for granted. The moment you do, it’s a free pass for them to continually do so.
  • Be careful of people who freely use their age as an excuse for bad behaviour, it just shows their inability to grow up, and the sad reality they will probably stay that way no matter how much they try to deny it.
  • Friendships are two way streets. The minute it become a one way street, you have to seriously ask yourself what direction that friendship is taking you.
  • Friendships aren’t about who you can get fucked up with, it’s about when the shit hits the fan, they can be honest enough to say “pull your fuck’n head in!”
  • The basis of all relationships including friendships, should be trust. Trust can be freely given, but it takes two to maintain. Remember to be aware of wolves in sheep’s clothing. Once that trust is broken, it takes work to rebuild it.
  • Be aware of who you surround yourself with. Some people are like vampires, they will continue to suck the life and energy out of you until you have nothing left.
  • Protect your emotions. There are emotional manipulators who will freely destroy them if given the chance.
  • Remember to rejuvenate. A good night’s sleep is of the utmost importance. It makes getting through the following day so much easier.
  • When you have a problem. Confront the person. But be weary of those who reverse it and make out that it’s there problem. You will find yourself going around in an endless cycle until something finally gives.
  • In regards to love. There’s a point where you have to ask yourself do you love this person enough to keep in your life, or do you love them enough to let them go?
  • Do not lose faith in love. It exists, just sometimes you have to sort through the assholes and their bullshit to find it.
  • Looks only get you so far. It’s all very well to work on your appearance, but at the end of the day flesh ages as the years go by, and if you haven’t equally worked on your insides, it’s only a matter of time before that shines through.
  • Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me three times. Well there’s the door.
  • Don’t want to be treated like shit, don’t treat others like one, don’t want to be treated like a piece of meat don’t treat others like one. Want respect? Earn it!
  • Remember self worth begins from the inside, not from outside.
  • People say blood is thicker then water. That maybe the case, but remember ultimately family is what you make it, whether there’s blood ties or not.
  • Sometimes we lose ourselves. But remember with time and effort, everything can be found again.
  • Trust your gut instincts, they’ve kept you alive this long.
