Life happens on its own terms, things will come and go according to timing you cannot control. The magic can only happen when you let go completely and let it be as it is trying to be. You will never see the beautiful horizon if you stubbornly stare down at your feet. Trying to force things to happen or to be different than they are is a madness that only delays what needs to happen. You can not appreciate if you become complacent and expectant, sometimes life pushes you down to humble you and remind you that luxuries aren’t necessary and expecting them to be is not a place of appreciation.
What people think of you and why based on pure assumption sometimes, well, it doesn’t even matter. What they think isn’t even your business, your business is who you are and what you truly do. Being respectful and kind are in our control, others perceptions and reception of it, is entirely up to them. Stop settling for less than what you want and far less than you deserve in every aspect from jobs to relationships.
