As I began cleaning the kitchen this morning and starting a delicious breakfast for the family to enjoy this morning, I felt very happy inside. Taking care of the ones I love is my number one priority. I feel like I am fully awake in the sense that I know where my priorities here on Earth are. The relationships you have with others depends on the effort you exert and the effort they exert. You cannot have a relationship with someone who doesn’t want it. With that in mind, you cannot please everyone. No matter who you are, there will be people in your life that are just not meant to be. Learn your lessons and move on. Don’t feel bad if someone doesn’t like you or you didn’t connect. I feel it is an impossible goal of trying to get every single person to like you in this world. I have known so many people who get extreme anxiety or are very hurt to their core if they feel they are not accepted by everyone. My answer to this is, focus on what you can control. Filter out negative people and focus on how you want your life to be. You are in control( to a point) on how your life turns out. Yes, we have all been hurt by someone. Maybe that hurt stems from a parent or from a significant other that betrayed you in someway. Try to let go of that hurt and realize that you don’t know the full story. You don’t know all the factors that played a part in that scenario. You may never know the details. This is exactly why you need to heal and move on. Not everyone you meet is there to hurt you or use you. Keep that in mind. Live and love to the fullest extent. If you hold back, you just never will ever know what you could have had. You are beautiful and you deserve happiness. You will never have to apologize for loving someone and treating them right.
