Wise people “will know what is right, do what is good, and therefore be happy”

Keywords: {0}

Sometimes you can even help by not doing anything at all. When you do people around you become more friendly and experiences the smiles and laughs of other is what in the end brings happiness to my heart. The second connection that I made is that I made was with an idea of Aristotle. He believes that in order for us to be happy we need to be our true selves. I identify with the idea because this is who I am. I always think that I have the ability to help the other, and it’s my nature to take care of people.

A huge support for all of my goals has always been having a community behind me and making what I call ‘friendship dates’

In that way, we are supporting each other in shared goals during our date.

We are not only showing friends they are important to us in this way, but showing ourselves that we are important enough to choose the right people to be around for us and the right ways to use our limited time together.

I was so prepared to one day leave home

I’m lonely but sometimes in a secret part of my heart, I don’t want the pandemic to end. It’s horrible. I’ll be so much happier when it ends. But part of me never wants to leave my parents home. I’m lonely I miss my friends. But this pandemic made me scared of the outside world. It made me cuddle up with my blankey (Mr. Blankey) and cry.

Every stranger is simply a friend you haven’t met yet

Keywords: travel

I have come to realize we are all more similar than different. Our clothing may be different. We may have different shades of skin color. Use different money. Speak different languages. Some have plenty. Some not enough.

But we all bleed red. We all have same basic needs. To feel valued. Important. Loved. And we all respond to Gratitude. Human touch. And kindness.

If you’re too good to like a picture of my kids than we really aren’t friends

The company we worked at had a toxic team culture. When I left, I didn’t tell them where I was going. I didn’t want all these negative and toxic people to know about my new chapter. I did meet some lovely people at this company and I keep in touch with them to this day. The toxic ones I want to remove from my life. When I blocked this person and the rest of the toxic team members from all of my social channels, I felt a huge burden lifted. I periodically clean out my friends/contact list to this day. If you’re too good to like a picture of my kids than we really aren’t friends.

If you do not feel at home with your friend just being themselves at their worst/best then y’all ain’t homies

When you stressed and got problems. The homies say we’ll figure it out, the friends and acquaintances say you’ll figure it out. You don’t need to be close to be a homie. You don’t need to talk everyday to be a homie, you just need to be a home a person can find and seek comfort/support in when they need it. Support doesn’t mean giving money or anything monetary it means being with them so they know they won’t be suffering and crying alone in their mess. It means showing them they aren’t fighting for themselves, by themselves.‬

You don’t want to put yourself over others, but you have to

When you have a fear to lose people, they will walk out from you trying to control that situation and trying to keep them. You slowly learn after each relationship and friendship, people leave and it will hurt. And each time, I get a little less cold. Still angry, but slowly keeping myself open to everything.

I’ve come to realize that my judgements stem from my own insecurities

If I judge someone (including myself) to the highest degree, then no one else can first. If I make a hilarious, self-detrimental comment, then people can only laugh with me, not at me. And a lot of the time, they do. I’ve made my friends, my coworkers, random people around me at Starbucks, laugh with the judgmental things I’ve said.

It only serves as a reminder of the kind of people I never want to get involved with again

Now I’m dedicating time to becoming the person I want to be. The person who is utterly unaffected by jealousy or envy, the type of person who says “I’ve had enough and I’m out, I deserve way better.” Hopefully, a wholesome and equal love will enter my life, if I do what’s right for me.
