A pinch to the soul from the @thenotebookoflove… Read on! 😉
“Live without pretending, love without depending, listen without defending, speak without offending.
Only when you compete with yourself can you become a better you. If you decide to compete with others, you’ll end up bitter.
Excuses hold you back. Action moves you forward.
Confidence is admitting who you are, what you’ve done, and loving yourself for what you’ve become, no matter what others think of you.
People will choose to blame their circumstances on fate or bad luck. Very few will admit it’s mainly the choices they have made.
Be happy in front of people who don’t like you, it kills them.
People may hate you for being different and not living by society’s standards, but deep down, they wish they had the courage to do the same.
Sometimes we put up walls. Not to block people out, but to see who cares enough to knock them down.
You made your own choices, so don’t blame anyone for the consequences.
If you don’t mean something, don’t say it, words are painful weapons that can’t be undone.”
