Officially deleting and keeping my distance from negative people with negative energies, and making room for more peaceful, positive and uplifting friends. I’ve wasted too much time around people who were negative, who tried to make me miserable, who brought nothing but criticism and wrath into my life, but had the audacity to call themselves my “Friend” or “Lover.” The time for negativity is over, and now is the the time for a new beginning.
To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that that prisoner was you.
You can have a pet zebra and put that zebra into a small cage every day and tell the zebra that you love it, but no matter how you and the zebra love each other, the fact remains, that the zebra should be let out of that cage and should belong to someone who can treat it better, the way it should be treated, someone who can make it happy.
Forgiveness is a gift you give yourself.
Never forget the three powerful resources you always have available to you: love, prayer, and forgiveness.
Death Cab for Cutie - Your New Twin Sized Bed
You say that some women shut Asian men down because they are Asian. Fine, fuck em. They flat-out told you that some aspect of them is intolerant. Why would you want that? How could that possibly remain attractive to you?
Religiousness being associated with Goodness
Religion was created to control the masses like sheep, and ‘excuses’ people from unthinkable crimes. Crimes Are Still Crimes, whether you are religious or not. Being religious doesn’t automatically make you a good person, so don’t try to hide behind your religion after wrongdoing. I am not going to assess you by your religious affiliation, but by the type of person that you are.
When it comes down to it, Religion and God have absolutely nothing to do with each other, and I am suspicious of people who claim otherwise.
Sometimes the people that were supposed to be supporting you and helping you are the ones that hurt you the most, and you have to learn how to grow on your own. Its hard not to be bitter about it, but all you can do seek out kind and supporting friends who will help you rather than hurt you. Things wont always be easy, but through love, support and a little bit of help, you can prosper. Fuck all those people who wouldn’t help you, you owe it to yourself to help yourself.
One might be aesthetically beautiful, but what good are you if you contribute nothing positive to this world? We need to stop “seeing” people for physical appearances, and instead see a persons beauty by how they treat others and by what they contribute to others well being. We all have inner beauty, we just need to harvest it, stay away from negativity, learn to love ourselves, and ultimately love others.
You know all that sympathy that you feel for an abused child who suffers without a good mom or dad to love and care for them? Well, they don’t stay children forever. No one magically becomes an adult the day they turn eighteen. Some people grow up sooner, many grow up later. Some never really do. But just remember that some people in this world are older versions of those same kids we cry for.
It seems to me as a species we like to play games, especially games that let us boss people around. The more insecure one is the more control one seeks.
From the start, we are encouraged to identify our being with limited ideologies. This in turn segregates humanity by creating “teams.” Once you choose one team the other teams inherently become your competition. Each team wants to be the “winner” because the participants within the team believe themselves to hold the bottom line truths about the world; it is not until the players transcend their team’s truths that they might join (or are encouraged to join) another team more inline with their new set of truths.
In this way, we are taught to see ourselves competing with one another using a multitude of separative concepts (i.e. ethnic identity, socio-economic status, religion, profession, political affiliation, nationalism, and other “-isms”). What is often left out are the fundamental concepts which allow us to reconnect with others; the little reminder that we are all human beings seeking love in our own individual way on a shared planet with a finite amount of time. So does it not seem more reasonable to live in harmony with your fellow man than to play these mind games? Probably, but the problem is most don’t even realize they are playing a game. Recognizing one’s game is the first step to cleaning one’s perceptual lens. And we hold the capacity to show as much understanding as we can - it is always a choice.
I strongly believe that love is the answer and that it can mend even the deepest unseen wounds. Love can heal, love can console, love can strengthen, and yes, love can make change.
The more we are filled with thoughts of lust the less we find true romantic love.
