“People are unreasonable, illogical and self-centered.
Love them anyway.
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.
If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.
Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.
The biggest person with the biggest ideas can be
shot down by the smallest person with the smallest mind.
Think big anyway.
What you spend years building may
be destroyed overnight.
People really need help but may attack if you help them.
Help people anyway.
Give the world the best you have
and you might get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.”—Mother Teresa (via justbesplendid)
“Read each sentence:This is this cat. This is is cat.This is how cat. This is to cat. This is keep cat. This is a cat. This is retard cat. This is busy cat. This is for cat. This is 40 cat. This is seconds cat. Now read every third word in each sentence :)”—(link)
You can’t have everything going well or perfect in your life. It upsets the balance. And apparently trying to hide your submission of the bad stuff also upsets the balance.
Trying to keep the peace- I naturally keep my feelings to myself. Painting what I thought was a half way decent picture of happiness and tranquility. To keep the negatives away until alone in the dark of the night it was safe to cry. Trying to be outwardly strong and resilient for my whole family. Only relaying the necessary feelings.
This method has both served me well and blown up in my face. And while the bad always comes with the good. I wish for once I could keep my feelings and not feel like I have failed.
A certain sense of turmoil has erupted within me… I’m still not sure which is right, but then if I knew I wouldn’t be here writing my mental/emotional throw up again.
Maybe I’m hoping someone will read this and understand me a little better. Maybe I’m hoping that this will stop the emotional storm I’m in. Maybe, maybe.
Until the next curve ball…(maybe next time I’ll remember my mitt)
“Like water which can clearly mirror the sky and the trees only so long as its surface is undisturbed, the mind can only reflect the true image of the Self when it is tranquil and wholly relaxed.”—Indra Devi (via heartmindspirit)
