Don’t look to others for a sense of self-worth, but to ourselves. Comparing yourself to others is the best way to tear yourself down, and can be detrimental to your mental health. Look instead at the unique traits that make us all different from one another, and remember to value yourself as much as you value others. Learn to notice your own suffering, acknowledge it. Don’t let life pass you by; act in a way that adds value to your life as well as building upon your sense of self-worth. When you can learn to value and love yourself as you do others, you can live a more fulfilled life.

I would like to take the time to apologize to those who may or may not have been looking forward to the next post, and for my long absence. It’s been about a third of a year since I’ve posted, but I’ve been a bit busy trying to get my motivation back. It’s as good as it’s going to be at the moment, so I can’t really complain.
I’m ready to get back into the game, and start posting again.
We have all had a time in our lives where we truly felt low, where we truly felt like it couldn’t get much worse. Some days are harder than others. One thing to do is to try to look at the good things in life that keep us going, that allow us to stay on our feet. Find what drives you to move forward, and keep on going.
A good thing to do when youre stressed is to take a deep breath and relax. Keeping a clear head, even in high stress situations, makes you less likely to make irrational decisions. Don’t fall to the pressure, but rise to the occasion.
Many things in this world
Will eventually change
Over the course of time.
Forgotten are spoken words
Cinders follow dying flames
People wither and die
But, my tender live for you
Is a conpletely different story
For it will never fade
My emotions I know are true
For all that could possibly be
And new memories made
Making each day bright
Even in the worst
It may not always last
You are my sunlight
The one I love
Though opinions may clash
The time I spent with you
And the trials we endured
Made my days and weeks
With whay may ensue
My feelings, true, I assure
Of the wonderful girl before me
So never forget hoe special
You are to me, always
As I will forever cherish
The time spent together
Love, expressed in many ways
Our love is timeless
One thing many people don’t do is get out of their comfort zones. In my opinion, that is a reasonably distasteful way to live one’s life due to the fact that they’ll never really be able to get to where they might want; they’d be taking the easy way out. Leaving your comfort zone means taking a risk, and risk taking is an important part of living one’s life.
Each day, I yearn more and more
For the hand of a girl so close
Yet embittered, it seems so far
As I am not the one she chose
Why should I be so jealous?
Of that one guy, just so lucky
It was not I whom she met first
And alas, this situation be not too sucky
I find it great to garner our friendship
Yet my jealousy first blinded me
To how great a person her chosen is
Quite frankly, jealousy and envy don’t suit me
This journey will be worth the while
As long as she is still here
How I enjoy her lustrous smile
As I stare from over there
Oh my gosh, she is quite adorable
Still, I can hope that in her eyes
My actions and I aren’t too deplorable
Even as I stare from way over here
It is obvious, I’m in love!
My heart and mind tell me so
Still, this love can be so tough
Head over heels, more so than I thought
I’m a man, disconnected from his feelings
Of that, there can really be no doubt
How can I really, in the world?
Tell her about these feelings flowing about
Maybe I should, maybe I shouldn’t
Reveal these feelings of mine just yet
In the chance of ruining our relationship, I couldn’t
Possibly bear that very thought
So I’ll let things stay as they are now
Because her smile I love to see
It matters much more to me
That each day, she remain happy
Because she’s the one I love
She should always be free
Even though she’s loving someone
That someone is, but not me
To me, living a good life involves living the life that YOU want to live, striving for your dreams bit by bit. Don’t give into the expectations of other people; you need to live for yourself. Reach for the things that make you happy.
