There are days on which things don’t go as planned. Believe it or not, this happens to everyone. It’s rare for some, while it’s a regular thing to deal with for some. I would say that I fall into that “some” category where things not going as planned is a regular thing to deal with. Do you know what else is regular? My periods. So what? I deal with it anyway. There is this slang YOLO (You Only Live Once), that people use these days. Why not live every day to the fullest and replace that, YOLO, with You Only Die Once? The point is, look for solutions and not problems.
While I’m being so philosophical and “trying to be” motivational, let me write down some (TWO) points for you.
- DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE
This not only applies to underestimating others, but yourself too.
Being good at something and telling people “No, I can’t do that, I’m bad at it.” , so that you’re not afflicted by the evil eye is sometimes too hard to believe. Why don’t you just accept and thank the person who sees that in you and tries to give you a compliment?
Then there are others who actually are bad at something and get worse time after time. You know why? Because someone told them that and they accepted it. I’ve been there, done that. In fact, I still let people get into my head sometimes. But trust me, when you know you’re right and even when you haven’t given it a shot, have the courage to tell the person trying to get you to believe you can’t do something that you’re capable of it.
And. Never think negative before trying. You always have a choice. If plan A doesn’t work, go for the next plan. But if you don’t have a backup plan to work on, make sure you ace it in the first attempt.
- TAKE TIME SERIOUSLY, NOT EGO
Crying over a girl or a guy is never worth the effort you put in if you’re right. Let time heal the situation or easier advice to give would be to get over it. Let me put this right. Why do you have to fight in the first place when you can ignore your ego?
Do you listen to yourself when you talk to your family and when you talk to you boyfriend/girlfriend? Can you tell the difference now? You don’t have to explain yourself or convince them to believe you or trust you or apologize to your mom specifically. But you have to apologize and make sure they’re not mad at yo and that they still love you and trust you when it comes to your so called BAE.
You let that ruin your day and cry over the people who, you can’t guarantee will stay with you for the rest of your life. But don’t even think before yelling at your mom for your own mistakes. Because you know she can’t leave you, and she’ll forgive you the next time you talk to her.
Love can distract you and demotivate you too.
