The best thing you can do is to completely ignore them and focus on what makes you better. It's hard, but know that you deserve only good and positive vibes. You were not born to embrace and express negativity. Maybe the people around you might have brought that side out of you, but naturally you're nothing like those people. You're way better.

64. Things end when it's time for you to step into something greater. Don't stop the process by being afraid of what comes next or staying the same just because it's comfortable. It's okay to evolve and outgrow people. It's also perfectly fine to not know what comes next. Just go on.

And all this makes you feel guilty. And so it's easy to label yourself as bad. But it is okay to feel like this. Just know that you're not a bad person at all. It shows that you're deeply a good person at heart, because you've been craving for goodness all your life when all you got was badness. But once you realize this, you will break free from the torture and start making good choices for your life. You will do what it takes to gain that good heart of yours back from a world that made you so cold in the first place.

69. Deep down you want better for yourself. Your spirit keeps reminding you of all the potential you have. Sometimes you might even get an inner glimpse of what's possible for you if you just applied yourself. It's time to break free from the repetitive habits that keep you stuck.

70. I look back to see what I have been watering for so long... and sometimes it's nice to see have things have grown.

71. Thinking positively also increases your confidence and makes you believe in yourself more.

72. Transformations are a part of life. We are constantly being changed by things changing around us. Nobody can control that. nobody can control the environment, the economy, luck, or the moods of others. Compositions change. Positions change. Dispositions change. Experiences change. Human beings change.

73. Appreciate where you are in your journey. Even if it's not where you want to be. Every season serves a purpose.

74. Surrender what weighs heavy on your heart and mind. It's not for you to carry. It's not for you to overthink and worry. Release it and allow yourself to feel lighter; more at ease. Know that everything has a way of working out. It always does. Be patient as things clear out

75. It's not easy to be positive all the time. Some days you will feel like you just can't do it anymore. You want to give up on everything. You feel like you have nothing to live for. You feel like your efforts are going to waste. You feel negative emotions. You are around people that make you feel negative. And you just think, "how am I going to ever handle all this?" But wait... if you take a moment to think about the bigger picture, you'll understand that all that you've fought for will never go to vain. The universe works like magic. You pay a price for something, you get it back and ten times more. So hold onto your goodness, try be as positive as you can. Smile at your haters. And think about something that makes you smile or feel better to keep yourself distracted from the negativity. Try your best to stay away from the negativity. You might not be able to do it all in one go, but taking it slow, step by step, is still good enough as long as you're moving forward. But know this: you are destined to have a happy ending after everything you've been through.

Advertisements
