Nobody Is Perfect. Everyone Makes Mistakes.

As we are human beings, we all struggle to find our goal. We want to succeed and be accepted. We try our best to fit in with our social norms. And often, we compare ourselves to others. 

We tend to forget what we have done, but instead, we focus on how far we can go. We forget to appreciate ourselves for the hard work we have done. We blame, criticize, and beat ourselves up when we make mistakes.

Living this way, we will lose our joy and happiness; life is short; we don't have to be perfect. We make mistakes, and we learn. We don't have to wait until we have everything, then we can be happy. But we can be happy now, despite we are not perfect, yet we make mistakes.

"Nobody is perfect. Everyone makes mistakes. But some mistakes will teach you great lessons and make you a better person."

Respect Yourself enough to say I deserve better


Respect yourself enough to say,"I deserve better."


This quote reminds me of my old self. In the past, I had been struggling to let go of someone who didn't deserve my love, tears, attention, time, energy, etc.

When you truly love someone, you will lose yourself. You will give your all to that person and even think you can't live without him. It would be great if the person you love treated you the way you treated him. But if he didn't treat you like you treated him, you should better move on. 

Letting go of someone and moving on is not easy, especially when you are genuinely in love with him. It is like myself in the past that I allowed someone to stay in my life longer than he deserved. I tried to hold on to him because I thought I didn't want to lose him. I thought I couldn't live without him. 

And the more I tried to hold on to him, the more I was hurt. Often, I cried myself to sleep. I even felt like it was the end of the world. I had let myself wallow in self-pity for months until there came a time when I realized that I am more than my pains and my feelings; I am worthy, and I deserve better.

When you acknowledge your worth, you love yourself enough; you respect yourself and won't let yourself stay in a relationship that does not serve you. You won't settle for anything less than you deserve.

It's Your Life. Live it The Way You Want

You have only one life; it is up to you how you will spend it. Growing up, you are taught to follow the standard that everyone knows that it is the way you are supposed to do. 

That standard is you must go to school to have a degree to find a job that pays you better or get hired by the top or best company. 

Often, you don't know what you really want in your life that may be because you still can't make it clear between what you want to become and who you really are. You have been adapted to the standard of your society for how you should live your life.

You try your best to fit in the social norms, which makes you forget about who you really are. Your everyday life is like an automatic mode since you wake up until you sleep. So many times, you find yourself wondering how far you can go? What you really want in life? 

And so often you ponder your life; you feel like you still have something to be fulfilled. You are more than what you are doing. And you want to be the change you wish to see in the world. You want to make a difference. 

Maybe it's time for you to find out who you really are. It's time for you to live your life the way you want to live and be the person you really are. 

"It's your life. Don't let anyone make you feel guilty for living it your  way."
