See me

Most of us need honest, real relationships; one of our greatest hungers of life.  Adults change little from infancy in needs of acceptance, recognition, praise, warm welcome, friendly face to relieve loneliness; still need encouragement and notice.  Touch me, smile at me, text me stimulates me to achieve, grow, and progress through mutual trust.  But to the degree I give, I get.

Opinion Myths

When my self-respect depends on opinions of others, I am a slave to the myth. I will love self whether I sink or swim. I am proud of me due to my courage to go for it. The audience out there don’t measure my failure or my success, I do. Therefore, the only person I’m trying to impress is me. Waiting for respect from others is ridiculous. I play ultimately to audience of me and when I lose myself in the effort I know that I’m on the right track. Being aware that some days will be hard is okay because life without struggle is not reality. I term my success on courageously living each day to the max while being true to me.

Me talk

I build my own feelings of self-worth through positive self-talk. Life seems to flow a bit smoother when I’m dealing with people that display high self-esteem: open, honest, trusting, with mutual goals. No need to waste time yelling at children for exhibiting improper behavior. Instead, try waiting for and seeking preferred behavior to compliment.  Less stress experienced by all involved.

correct thinkers

Each of my actions taken in this game of life has its origin in a thought. Therefore, the totality of my actions is what has produced the person that I am today. And today’s thoughts will produce the person that I will evolve into tomorrow. The greatest power in my possession is the power to choose (not my electric company but thoughts). And if my thoughts are of positive outcomes then there’s no need to fight the feeling.

Friends

If friendship is based on my weakness, how good is it. I’d rather have friends who are also strong,  kind, and caring.

Gone

When I allow others to control my life my future is in their hands. The past will not manage me because I live in the present.
