It's time you start telling yourself that you deserve love, honor, and respect and stop settling for anything less. WOW! I had to repeat this several times for myself as well. Sometimes, we can get caught up or distracted by others and lose the opportunity truly to be at one with ourselves. We tend to make unwise choices, not only in our relationships but in life as well. Don't view yourself as being flawed because something didn't quite work out, it may simply mean that you have learned what you needed to learn, and now it is time to let go and move on.
Difficulties in life are inevitable for all of us. The question is, what will we do with them? If we had a choice, we’d probably choose to go through life without any struggles. Who wouldn’t want life to be easier? But like it or not, I have learned that our struggles actually serve a purpose in life. They help us to grow more into ourselves and develop into stronger, wiser, and more faithful people.
Only you can be the creator and designer of your life and your relationships. We need to know where we are going and what we want, so we can get there. Obviously, you can't create something, or arrive if you don't know what it is or where you want to be. Live by fully breathing in and out each day, instead of waiting to exhale until everything is exactly as you want it. All that we have to do is follow our own individual calling, pursue it with incredibly hard work, dedication and ensure that it helps other people. That is no more and no less than what is required for each of us to achieve our greatest potential and build a meaningful legacy.
