Found this one in one of my FB-Notes. Source is unknown, I’m afraid. ENOJY:
10. EXPECTATIONS OF OTHERS WILL ALWAYS DISAPPOINT NO MATTER WHAT.
meaning, never EVER expect anything from anyone. unfortunately, we live in a selfish world where people use, manipulate and abuse others. focus on your own personal expectations and follow through.
9. NEVER FULLY DISCLOSE ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION ABOUT YOURSELF.
it’s so sad but true. life is not like it was when we were children playing on the monkey bars or swinging free on the swing sets during recess. what you say to another, even that person who you believe is your friend and who also shares personal information with you, will most likely be used against you.
8. TRUST YOUR GUT INSTINCT, A 100% OF THE TIME, IT IS ALWAYS CORRECT.
trust it people. seriously, the inner self knows. people as a whole are capable of so much but fail in believing in their personal selves. it’s the ultimate SELF SABOTAGE. yes, when your little voice within screams out; please do not ignore it. there is truth behind the message, as much as you do not want to acknowledge it.
7. PEOPLE DO NOT CARE, ESPECIALLY IN EMPLOYMENT, HEALTH CARE, AND BILL COLLECTORS.
no one cares. PERIOD!!!! you think people care. you believe people want to listen to you and help you. not the case. there are a select few who exist in this world aiding others without wanting something in return. A FEW!!!! employers want stoic money making robots, the health care industry, well, trust me…work with some doctors, nurses, EMT people and you’ll see for yourself. i’m mainly concerned about the insurance aspect which to me is the most ridiculous waste of money ever. and finally, telling Mr. Bill Collector your life story WILL not make the bill disappear, vanish or even cause such person to even remotely for one second want to go out of their way and make things any easier for you. it’s all about MONEY!!!!
6. TRUST YOURSELF.
you are all that you have. the answers to most of our questions or worries are within. it does take a little effort receiving them. one does have to chill out for a second, slow down the myriad of racing thoughts, focus and listen. it’s the internal chaos which distracts us.
5. NEVER DEPEND ON ANYONE.
no one is going to protect, love or nurture you. i’m so sorry. oh there will be times when it appears that all of those things are being done. all good things come to an end, the honeymoon wears off, and boom, there you are naked, stripped because you allowed yourself to do everything and anything for that individual, lost your identity, abandoned complete faith in yourself, and ultimately lost your independence of self.
4. YOUR LIFE IS EXACTLY THAT; YOUR LIFE.
your life. PERIOD!!!! you came into this world alone. your life is your personal journey. all of us have something we are supposed to conquer, understand or learn in order fulfill our individual essence or meaning. basically, stop that demeaning life style where you are living someone else’s life. you cannot change anyone. no matter HOW much you do, no matter HOW much you love, no matter HOW skinny, HOW pretty, HOW intelligent you are; it doesn’t matter because selfish, egotistical, manipulators will devour you. when they are finished, they will spit you out leaving you to fend for yourself.
3. FRIENDS, THEY COME AND THEY GO.
friends are revolving doors. here one minute, gone the next. CO-WORKERS are NOT friends.
2. STOP LIVING IN FEAR.
fear is like a disease causing anxiety, self doubt, bitterness, and resentment. it’s fear which gets in the way of so much. it’s very hard not allowing fear to seep in consuming and destroying everything. basically, stop the fear before it stops you.
1. NO ONE IS GOING TO LOVE YOU THE WAY YOU WANT THEM TO.
even if you are the most incredible, awesome, amazing person ever you too will find that no one is going to love you the way you desire. the ONLY one who is going to LOVE you that way is: YOURSELF!
