worth it. 

A wise woman once told me, “Sometimes when you do too much, it can back fire at you… But always think of his future as if it’s yours. Do things for him, do things for the both of you in the long run…” It’s safe and evidentially clear that relationships aren’t easy. Or maybe they are, and maybe I’m just crazy. However, realistically we can say they’re some work. How do we live in this world and try to remain sane all while being tied to someone else? It’s tough. You’re not perfect and neither is the person you’re journying through life with. In this sh*tty world you have to find someone not so sh*tty to have your back. I’m one person that can say “I’m not good with my words.” And sometimes that’s okay, sometimes it’s not, but sometimes it is. It’s okay to not verbally speak what’s on your mind. Because sometimes words kill it all. It’s the actions you do that should make someone understand that you’re there for them. I’m not someone who is always jolly and cheerful. I have a bad attitude and I make mistakes. However, I am someone who will always have your back, even when you don’t think I do. I’m someone who is thinking of the best and hoping for the best for you and your future, even when you don’t think I’m contributing. I’m the type of person who cheers for you on the inside so you don’t get all big headed and think this is the finish line. 
I am someone who appreciates, respects, and loves hard. But maybe I should express my feelings and thoughts aloud more often. I understand I’m not perfect and accept that. My heart breaks when people I care about think I don’t care about them due to my stubbornness and lack of emotion. But those who know me and those who understand me, know that I am working for myself and those I love. I have every single person’s back that I care about because I know they have mine. I’m stubborn and probably not worth it to many, but I’m worth it to myself and that should be good enough for anyone. 
I’ve found my not so sh*tty person in this sh*tty world, and if you’ve found that person too, push everything aside: the stubbornness, the attitude, the lack of affection and emotion, and be there for that person just like you want them there for you. We need to realize that we are part of a team, and now it’s all about “ours.” 

New Week- Top 3 Life Helpers

Through this life we are faced with challenges, rewards, and everything in between. We encounter good people, and not so good people. But when we do find these good people and these good influences, life seems to move a little smoothly. Top 3 things to make a life a little easier.

1. Good friends.

Fine. Have a significant other, and be happy, but don’t lose your friends. Granted, if you find the right person they’ll be more than you could ever need, but you will always need your friends. Guys need to talk to guys, and girls need to talk to their girls; it’s just how it works. And the good friends are the friends that are going to accept that you can’t spend all your time partying and getting crazy, because you’re busy trying to get your life started with someone you love- and these are the type of friends that are one call away from a vent, or a game night in the man cave. Find those friends, and keep them.

2. Positive vibes.

Positive vibes in the work place, at home, at school, everywhere you are. Always surround yourself with positive thoughts and good intentions. There are things and people in this life that feed off of negativity, don’t be that person. Be the person that always has something good to say, and can create a solution to any problem. Your life will be so much simpler and happier if you could bring positivity to it every day.

3. Honesty and Trust.

Yes, these two fall together. You need to be honest with yourself and those around you to have trust. Some might think this only goes for the way you treat people; no, this goes for you too. You need to be honest with yourself to trust the moves and decisions you make in life. Be true to yourself. If you know something isn’t going to work out, or if this something isn’t what you really want in life, don’t pretend like it is. Being honest with yourself will make you feel comfortable in the world around you, and allow you to trust your instincts and not fear the obstacles in life.

New Week- Originality

Be original.

1. Create your own footsteps.

Create your own path rather than following the path that already has footsteps. Just because there is someone going down one path doesn’t mean that’s the same path you should take.

2. Do what makes you happy.

Too many people are worried about what other people are doing.. Or some people are just too worried about what people are thinking of them. But, who cares? Stray away from trends. Do you.

3. Be true to yourself.

Remember who you are and where you came from. Don’t change yourself and your desires to fit in. The trends you’re trying to follow aren’t all that they’re cracked out to be.

New Week- Friend Tips

So, for some strange reason, I’m that friend people go to for help. Why do I say “strange reason?” Well, because I’m also that friend that never takes their own advice. Sure, I know what to say and when to say it to comfort someone, but I can never apply that advice to myself. I think there is just some part of us that wants to help and be there for other people. Like I’ve said before, I’m that person that puts others before myself. And I’m sure I’m not the only one. It’s in our nature to be the shoulder to cry on for the people we love, and there’s nothing wrong with that. But there needs to come a time in our lives when we stop for a second and listen to ourselves. Listen to what we’re telling our friends. Because they’re not just words of comfort, part of what we’re saying is the truth and we know it. So why won’t we listen to what we’re saying? Life is what you make of it. Show some consistency to yourself, and take your own advice once in a while- make your life a little easier.
