The sad thing about life is: “The world won’t care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.”

So, in the end, it is our job to motivate ourselves. I have a friend how is being really hard on herself about her grade in a class. She is starting to give up and she cries every day. I feel helpless… I can’t help her in that class. Me, not being her, can’t help her bring her self-esteem up. I can encourage her… which is what I have been doing but in the end, it is her thoughts that are making her feel that way. This experience has taught me that… everyone can encourage you and motivate you but it is YOU who has to take actions to make the changes necessary to do what you have to do. I am trying to motivate and encourage my friend as much as I can.. But I am also telling her that she has to take action too and make the difference in her grade.

Hardships

Leave a comment

We all have our hardships. In the moment, many of us think we are in the worst position ever….But that is not true. We are humans, humans have a way of adapting to the environment. That’s what we have been doing to get this far. We make solutions… we find out ways to get what we need. For example, communication was a huge problem before… before the technology we have now. Many times people weren’t able to get their message in time… and it would be too late. But now there are solutions to many of those problems and you too..no matter your hardship will find a solution to it 🙂 Find a solution that will help you get through what you are going through. There are no boundaries to it… just that you have to try not to think negatively about it.

Believe in yourself… you will get through it.

Here is a quote that I found on: https://www.facebook.com/powerofpositivity/photos/a.162838037370.127541.107787352370/10153256638642371/?type=3

It too talks about making the positive of a bad situation… and how in the end it’s all our choice. We can positively look for a solution for the situation or think negatively about it.

Hope – Siddharth Anand

Do you believe, in what you see

do you believe in reality

do you believe in the sun that’s bright

do you believe in the stars in the night

 

Do you believe in the birds that fly

do you believe in clouds and the sky

do you believe in wind that flows

do you believe in moon that glows

do you believe in light

 

Do you believe the spoken word

do you believe the things you’ve heard

do you believe in the final answer

do you believe in the swirling dancer

 

Do you believe in sound and sight

do you believe in moments bright

do you believe in taste and touch

do you believe that much

 

Do you believe in the soul inside

do you believe in ecstasy and delight

do you believe in glory and god

do you believe in that thought

 

Do you believe in the sky above

do you believe in love

 

Do you believe in the heaven and the earth

do you believe in death and birth

do you believe in life

 

open your eyes with hope within

open the door, let light reach in

if you believe, then you’ll win.

Believe in the Happy Ending :)

I know a lot of people, including myself, who’ve felt like giving up because they believed that no matter how hard they tried, they won’t end up happy. I think that it’s really easy to feel like this because there are so many uncertainties in the world, that you can never be sure that you will be happy. Life is cruel; it loves to make you miserable. But you can’t let it make you, or others, miserable. Not too long ago, I felt that my life was starting to come apart, and I nearly lost a lot of good friends. I almost didn’t even want to do anything, but one friend, even though she wasn’t with me physically, encouraged me to keep going and to try to make things right again. She told me that things would become better soon if I tried hard enough, and she showed me a lot of things to help me feel better. With a friend like her, I thought, hey, what’s the worst that can happen? I still have someone amazing like her. So I tried my hardest to make things right again, and now I’m back on track, and I’m closer than ever with the friends I almost lost. I was really lucky to have a friend to give me hope when I was losing a lot of it. It’s so important to give others hope because you don’t know how much they might need it for them to believe that they can be happy again.
