The late and great singer named Aaliyah once said “at first you don’t succeed dust yourself off and try again” People so often want to give up when they are so close. Sometimes we can’t see the bigger picture. We think the end is near when we lose a loved one, a car, a house, or a job, but yet we don’t see what is taken away will only be replaced with something much better. I know it’s heartbreaking when you see something you feel you can’t control has happened, you may want to give up on life, but understand you HAVE to continue where you are going because when one door closes another door opens. Sometimes we can stare at the closed door so long that we don’t even see when another door has been opened for us.
We want things in life but yet we don’t want to give up the things we have now to make room for what we are asking for. Don’t give up. When you’re heading in the right direction people might not want to be your friend, and they might even talk about you but don’t be concerned with them because in the end your actions will show them you can do fine without them in your life.
If a person insist on having you do things there way, and can’t embrace who you are and that you have your own life to live then those people have hidden agendas for you. Some people might want to live there life through you, but you have your own destiny in life, and they have to learn to live their life for them. It’s amazing how some people want you to do things that they themselves cannot or will not do. You have to learn that some people might try to bring you down, but you have to learn that if they are not adding to you or trying to make you better in any sort of way then there is no need for them to be around you and drain your spirit, your energy, or try to make you negative.
People have an effect on our lives, if someone has mistreated you in a relationship; it causes you to have fear in the next relationship. We do not always live free. Although in the USA, we say we are the land of the free, but are we really? What’s free? Freedom to hate? Freedom to believe whatever we are told to believe? What is exactly free? One thing in life that is free is the freedom to create our own happiness. Nothing else in life is free. Everything comes at a price, a sacrifice, or an exchange, however, we have the opportunity to be happy through the choices we choose that we feel will make us happy. Some people are not happy with the choices they have chosen but they don’t change in time to make themselves happy. They sit and complain, and blame others for the way their life is, but the change starts within you. Some people are never going to be happy, and some people will want to live through you, but let’s face it some people are just not going to like you, but the beauty in all this is you have the power to make the decisions that make you happy and if you feel you haven’t succeeded then pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and try again.
