Letting Them

25 Aug

There are all kinds of people in the world. Most of them are good and try to do their best. They aren’t hateful, don’t kick dogs or take candy from small children. But there are all kinds of people in the world, and not everyone will be nice, kind, moral, decent, or law abiding. We will likely meet someone at some point who is mean to us, or treats us with disrespect or worse. We’re in control of our lives and decide who we will have relationships with and what we will tolerate. Nobody wants to be abused, but we might find ourselves in a situation where due to circumstances around us, or those in authority over us, we have let others ridicule, demean, or hurt us intentionally. Maybe they are a family member we don’t feel we can disobey or stand up to. Or a boss who has the power to wreck our lives. Maybe they are someone we have a relationship with that is hurtful but we can’t seem to disengage from. There are endless scenarios, and one thing is certain, we are the only ones who can stop others from hurting us. Someone else may step in from time to time and defend us, but generally it’s all on us. Others will hurt us for as long as we let them. No matter what we’ve been told or led to believe, we are worthy of respect and valuable to the world. Our presence here brings great light and goodness to the world, and nobody else can offer the gifts we have to give. We deserve complete happiness, and with courage and authority, we can make it ours. Nobody is more valuable than we are. If we’re being abused, we can stand strong, be confident, and speak up. Our future is ours to design, and we can step away from any situation that isn’t working, and move in a new direction at any time. We are more powerful than we believe, and every blessing is there for us.

Some people like to put others down. They may criticize our appearance, the way we talk, the decisions we’ve made or endless other things. If someone doesn’t like something we’re doing, that is their problem to deal with. We don’t need the approval of others to do anything we desire, and we don’t need permission to begin. Like the stars in the sky, we are unique and have our own light to share. By moving away from those who hold us back and take control of our lives, we can reach any goal or destination, and find great satisfaction and happiness.

Family relationships can be very powerful, and when they are toxic can bring great frustration and grief into our lives. We only have control over our own decisions, and cannot prevent others from doing or saying things that hurt us. But we decide how we’ll manage what they do. We never have to stand still and take abuse. We can speak up and set whatever necessary boundaries we need to ensure our comfort and protection. We are strong and capable, and can have the lives we desire.

Today if someone has been hurting you and making you feel small, remember how unique and amazing you are. There isn’t anyone else like you in all of creation. You bring great blessings to the world, and deserve the very best of everything. Be confident and take control. Every single dream is waiting for you, and you will reach them all.

Walking Away

21 Dec

We make all kinds of connections and build lots of relationships as we go through our lives. Some are important and we hold them close, and others are created out of necessity or circumstance. Every relationship has an impact on us in some way. They may bring us great happiness and satisfaction, help us achieve some goal or destination, or simply alleviate our loneliness. When we have healthy, strong connections that embellish our lives, they may give us confidence and contentment as we move forward. But not all relationships are beneficial. If we are bound to someone else through conflict, anger, or dysfunction, our lives may be gravely impacted, and we may struggle to move ahead. We all know when we’re in bad situations, and we know what needs to be done to move away from them. But we may feel paralyzed and stuck because we are unsure of ourselves or afraid that leaving will be worse than staying. Change can be frightening, but one thing is certain. Our lives will never improve if we continue to remain in destructive situations. We are entitled to full and complete happiness and are valuable and worth every blessing we desire. The road ahead may be uncertain, but we are intelligent and can find our way to any destination we desire. We are never frozen in place. We can walk away from anything holding us back. There is great power and courage within us and nothing, absolutely nothing, can keep us from anything we desire. By trusting ourselves and choosing happiness, we can have the lives we want the most. Every single dream is possible, and with courage and determination, we can make them ours.

People say a lot of things to get what they want. If someone wants us in their life, they may tell us we need them to be happy, and without them we’ll fail. Our happiness is our own responsibility. Nobody can provide it for us despite what they may say. We already know what we want to do and where we want to go, and by achieving our own personal goals, happiness will follow. We are intelligent and wise, and completely capable of designing the lives we want. Nothing can keep us from any goal we desire, and every dream can be ours.

Routine and history are powerful motivators. If we’ve been in an unhappy situation for a long time, we may feel it’s too late to change. That is never true, and we can do anything we want at any time. When we’re ready to move forward, we can step in a new direction, leaving what doesn’t work behind. The whole world is there for us, and every road is waiting. We can go anywhere and do anything. There is sufficient courage and wisdom within us already to guide us to the destinations that will fulfill and bring us incredible happiness. By moving forward, with our eyes focused on the goal, we will succeed.

Today if you’re in a situation that isn’t working and you want a change, be confident and move in a new direction. Every single dream you desire is waiting for you. You have everything you need to reach them, and nothing can keep you from success. Be confident and trust yourself. You are amazing and can achieve complete happiness.

Getting Even

15 Apr

We live in the world with billions of other people. It’s great to have others around us, and we learn and grow by interacting with them. Most people are considerate and try to do their best, but there are some who don’t care about anyone but themselves and will do anything to get what they want. If they’ve hurt us or kept us from something we’re striving for, we may be angry and decide we’re going to get even. We might feel we must even the score in order to move ahead. Of course, we can always push back and hurt someone who has hurt us, but getting even won’t ever move us forward. Being intensely focused on making someone else pay will hold us in place or may even move us further from our goals. It’s impossible to target someone else’s life and work on our own at the same time. Every moment we spend plotting and planning, and executing retribution is time we can’t spend moving forward. It isn’t easy to be someone else’s target and when we’re hurt, we may feel like revenge is the only way to restore our spirit. But revenge and getting even does just that – it makes us even with the behaviors that hurt us. We are better than that. Rising above bad behavior and taking a higher stand will empower us and give us authority over the issue. If we’re true to the standards we want in our lives and focus on choosing the roads that take us where we most want to go, we will gain self-confidence and success. Others may do what they will. By holding fast to who we are and choosing the best roads going forward, we will reach every destination we desire. We are powerful and wise, and can always make excellent choices that take us where we want to go.

When we’re children we’re taught to play fair. But the world isn’t always fair. Sometimes cheaters win, and sometimes bad people get the prize. It hurts when we can’t stop someone from unfairly taking something from us. We can certainly push back if there’s a way to reclaim what’s been lost, but sometimes there is no recourse and we must accept what’s happened. It’s normal to feel bad when we’ve been abused, but there are unlimited roads to every goal. If someone has taken the road we’re on we can find another. Nothing can hold us in place indefinitely. There are endless possible options and with focus and determination we will find the way forward.

Nobody is strong enough or powerful enough to keep us from our goals. Every dream we desire is possible and even if we have to start over, we can reach them. If those around us aren’t supportive, we can change our relationships and do what is needed to create the lives we want. We can go anywhere and do anything. Nothing is out of reach. We can move forward and achieve anything we desire. Great success is always possible and we will reach it.

Today if you’ve been manipulated and hurt, keep your eyes on the goals you desire. Nothing can keep you from success. Find the road that will take you forward and keep moving. You are amazing and powerful, and nothing can hold you down. Every dream is possible and you can make them come true.
