Let’s talk about the impactful things in life… Okay I do this one a lot, especially at this point in my life. But does anyone else do the same thing? Someone/something stresses you out. But you don’t stop to think for a moment that if it’ll matter tomorrow, next week, next month, or next year? You also don’t think to wonder if anyone else is stressing over the same thing. The majority of the time it’s absolutely pointless. So here’s to the main point of this blog post – the things I’ve learned recently and will probably keep on learning.
Already kinda hit the nail on the head above but…
Don’t stress over the unnecessary
Pretty hypocritical for me to say because I stress so much about the little things. I work myself up about things that no one else would be bothered about. In fact, if it’s ever down the person, they wouldn’t think for a moment how its affected you. So, this is a big one for me. Will I ever stop? Probably not. But the main thing is that as I notice I’m doing it, I’ve to understand how important it is to relax. Other times, I just tell myself: “High blood pressure doesn’t go down itself you know, Tasha.”
People make their own choices
Likewise, how you live your life shouldn’t be portrayed how others want to see it. Life doesn’t come with instructions on how to live the perfect life. But if we could spend less time worrying about how others do this and that and start to live our own lives, maybe we’ll be much happier. We need more of that in the world – positivity, building each other up.
Everyone has their opinions
The people you wouldn’t expect to, has their opinion. We’re all entitled to them after all. Use your opinions wisely though. Got something on your mind? Share with the people you’re closest too. Don’t use opinions to intend to hurt others. Don’t be selfish. Think about what you say before you say. Be careful of how you react. Some people will never see what you see but that’s okay.
You can’t please everyone
Oh wow, you really can’t. Growing up and facing this fact can be one of the most frustrating things ever. Why has it gotten to be so much? Who knows. But it never seems to go away. You seem to do something for one person and another gets offended because they didn’t get it. You can’t see everyone every day or week, or more. Take my best friend for instance. I can go a month or so without seeing her. We don’t text every week. Does that mean we don’t care? Nope. It’s true friendship. We’re there for the important parts.
Always follow your dreams
It’s such a common saying, I know. But think about it. I mean, really think about it. No matter how many people are against what you think/say/do, never stop fighting for what you want in life. Aim high, have fun, and do all the things you’ve always wanted to do.
