I hope you have family to spend your precious time with this year. I hope you have the love you deserve. And I hope you pay it forward when appropriate. Love you, talk to you soon.
I subscribe to a word of the day newsletter and recently learned about the word, “Genial.” I wanted to share the definition and make the case as to why we should all be more… genial.
Genial means, to show sympathy and friendliness, and to be seen as a genius.
So why should we show sympathy to the people around us, even to those that don’t like us? Easy, because that person may not know how to be a better person. They might have so much drama in their life, that a break from that madness could really change them. I’m not saying it’ll work all the time, believe me I’ve tried, but at least you are doing something in an effort to make this world a better place.
I like to write down my thoughts because it helps to organize them. When you are just lost in your head you don’t really have a plan or a destination. But by writing it down, you see how your thoughts start to take form, and you can carry them on into completion. It’s almost like therapy, but cheaper 🤑
My advice to you would be to jot things down before you go to bed to help you sleep at night. Or even during the day when things seem to get hectic. However you do it, as long as it gets done. Do it daily until it becomes a habit and you will feel better about yourself.
Always remember, you can change how you feel about things just by meditating on the problem. We can’t control people’s actions, but we can move on from them that bother us.
Does everyone agree that adversity and torment are two different things? In school I was taught to overcome adversity, but they never mentioned torment. That’s because torment is a completely different animal. It can discourage you, and rob you of your confidence. So prepare yourself (because no one will prepare you) for the relentless nature that torment is. First build an unshakeable confidence that can see you through the tough times. Then build an unbreakable faith that will fuel your hope when you need it most.
I just wanted to post something inspirational today because I feel like I can provide comfort to my readers. You all should know that you are not alone in your struggles. We each go through out own trials, but it’s only going to make you stronger. But it will only make you stronger if you choose to accept what happened and learn something from the experience. I know that is easier said than done, so fake it till you make it.
If you ever need to chat just message me and I’ll try my best to help you out.
I’m dealing with some people who just don’t get it. They don’t understand what it takes to live among others peacefully. They lack the mental capacity to wrap their minds around proper social engagement. I’m at a loss for what to do, because to change someone’s behavior, it takes years of therapy, or a downfall. I don’t pray for people to get disciplined in that way just to learn a lesson, but sometimes that’s what it takes.
I pray for the patience it’s going to take to deal with these people. I ask that you pray for me and ask God to put me in a better place.
