You can never make the same mistake twice because the second time you make it, it’s not a mistake, it’s a choice.
– Steven Denn
Sometimes, I get “nervous” sharing what I think, as I’m sure a lot of people do. I guess it comes down to being judged – people wondering who I’m talking about or what I’m talking about. And, sometimes, it’s better not explaining the whole situation, since some topics are just too personal and better left unsaid. Some topics are from my past that have made me think numerous times. And some, are just from what I see around me.
This one here, is one of the ones that I will not get into too much detail about. It has been in my drafts for a couple of weeks now, since I have been back and forth about posting it. And truth be told, I have been busy with my family and other responsibilities. But Mark always says to just write about what’s on my mind, and guess what? It feels good writing about it!
I am hopeful that others recognize that they are not alone in this world. Took me some time to truly understand that, but…
We all have our insecurities.We all have our demons.We all have our reasons.
At the end of the day, “Nobody puts baby in the corner”.
We all have our own ways of living.We all have our own expectations.
If you do not know someone’s story, then it’s best not to judge. You just don’t know what you don’t know. Words and actions can both be hurtful and cause a lot of unnecessary drama.
Before we head over to the subscriber section, let me share this poem here below once again (it’s my first poem ever, back in the day), for those who have missed it. I read this from time to time as a reminder, and I called it Success.
As you encounter a new phase in your life,Make sure you take your time.Know that what you are about to do,Is what you want to do.It has to be for yourself, and no one else.You have to accept things in life,Whether they are good or bad.You have to accept yourself,For who you are, and who you want to be.Learn from your strengths and weaknesses.Learn from the people who come and go.Be strong through it all,And take one day at a time.Be proud of yourself when you’ve accomplished a goal.A goal you’ve been working on for your life.If you have a strong, kind heart through it all,Then you’ve accomplished the greatest success in life.You have become the strongest you could be.You have become wise in the ways you know how.And most importantly,You have become the person you have wanted to be.
