I believe I have gathered enough “life lessons” to write a decent inspiring post.

I would like to begin by telling you that no matter how tough the obstacles you’re facing might seem, and no matter how impossible you think life’s being at the moment, it’s important to remember that time always makes things better. When you give things time, without trying to interfere every now-and-then, things eventually get better. Time offers people the chance to look back on whatever has happened. For example, if two friends had an argument, the logical thing to do would be for one of them to apologize. The problem in many cases is that none of the people involved in the argument accepts to admit that s/he is wrong. However, if this is the case, I suggest that each person gives things some time, because the others would still he enraged, and having a discussion with someone who’s mad never goes far. Give the others 2-3 days to calm down (and don’t bring up the subject before then), and that is when you can try to fix things. Time heals.

Another thing I would like to talk about is learning to not be selfish. And by that I don’t mean selfish as in not giving others anything, but as wanting your favorite people only to yourself. Let me elaborate because I am haunted the most by that bad trait. My best friend and I talk every day, and I introduced that friend to my other friends and I was completely cool. But with the years, I started feeling like my best friend and my other friends clicked so well and I had no place in my best friend’s life anymore (yes, maybe I’m overdramatizing it). The sad part is that I started blaming myself for introducing my best friend to other people! The thing I want to tell you is that people can’t be yours. We would love it if they could, but they can’t. And perhaps it’s all in your head. I’m pretty sure your best friends love you a lot (and I do mean a lot) but you have to give them their space! I know it hurts to see your best friend and other friends bonding so well, when you know it’s what you and your best friend always had, but that’s life, and you can’t really stop it. It definitely hurts, and I get it, but you can’t go up to the person and say “hey, no talking to anybody else but me.” 

The last “lesson” I want to mention goes as follows: 

Never, ever, under any circumstances, think that everyone is better than you are. Certainly there are people who are smarter, prettier, or funnier than you are but that doesn’t mean that everyone is better than you are. I am 100% sure that you are extraordinary, that you have a gift the people who are prettier/smarter/funnier would die to have! You are incredible just the way you are, and somewhere out there is someone who will think that you are nothing less than phenomenal. 

That was it for this post, and I would like to tell all the fellow readers out there that  yes, I do talk to you like I’ve had my entire life figured out, but in reality I don’t. Obviously. But these are things you are taught and things you learn every day of your life, and spreading morals and life lessons is actually a good way to grow and turn to the better. Never settle for less than what you deserve, learn to live and be happy even if it takes time, give without taking, love unconditionally, forgive the haters, forgive your mistakes, and keep blogging.

I Want to Break Free

[Queen reference]

Today, I’m happy. And I’ll tell you why.

I’m happy because I have decided to start looking at life from a whole new angle. Or at least trying to. But I’m making an effort nonetheless. Sure some things in life upset us, and even frustrate us, but that’s no way to live. I looked at life differently; I have amazing friends and wonderful parents, an adorable brother, a roof over my head, good grades and a satisfied life. I’m thankfully gifted and incredibly blessed. I also seemed to have made others feel better – whether about themselves or after facing a certain struggle – without even noticing it. I also have come to realize that I’ve had some trouble with being happy lately, and that is because I let any little detail ruin my day, and even my week. It’s hard not to get infuriated over things that mean a lot to us (I know that better than anyone), but that is when your determination to be happy kicks in. I encourage every single person to make a little endeavor and try to not hold grudges, because nothing ruins your life and relationships the way holding grudges does. Let’s all try to find serenity, together.

I let my feelings hold me back. I let people’s words and opinions hold me back. But with a little devotion and positive thoughts, it’ll ¬†all be over, and I’ll break free from the stress and those “I’m feeling down for no reason” moments.

Here are some things that bring me happiness, and you can see if they bring you happiness as well: listening to your favorite music, reading a book or two, working out and leading a healthy life, helping others out, smiling more often, listening instead of arguing, being yourself around others, and especially doing more of what you love.
