Words of Confirmation

Sometimes, hearing confirmation helps you feel better.
It makes you feel that what you are doing is right and it is ok to keep believing in yourself.

When you are not sure about what you are doing,
The cloud keeps bothering in your head, and you keep wondering when you could see the clear sky again.

Then suddenly, when you don’t expect,
You hear words of confirmation and encouragement
maybe from your family, from somebody you don’t know, or from your partner.

It may be a really simple word.
It may be a long lecture.
It may be a fight.
It may be a whisper.

It may be even a silence.

You will feel motivated.
You will feel like making a change.
You will feel like keeping your faith.

Listen carefully.
There are always words of confirmation around you…

Requests to manipulative people…

There are people who try to manipulate your time just because you wouldn’t say “no” to them.

We all have things that we need to take care of everyday.

We all have things that we want to use our time for.

But nobody should not think that the world should be circling around you as a center.

Today, leave people alone in a good way.

Don’t take it for granted that your friends/partner/children wouldn’t say “no” to you when you throw your request at them.

We all have things that we need to take care of everyday.

We all have things that we want to use our time for.

But nobody should not think that the world should be circling around you as a center.

Today, consider if they need a space or time away from you for them to concentrate on or feel better about what they do.

Don’t expect them to spend time with you by sacrificing what they really want to do.

Well, I thought I should give you these requests tonight.

It’s YOU

Accept whatever YOU are feeling.

Do whatever YOU gotta do.

Then, YOU will find something that will lead YOU back to the path on which YOU are supposed to be.

 

Because, at the end, YOU are the one who is living YOUR life,

YOU have every right to choose what YOU need to make YOU happy.

 

Judgments from people will surely come and hurt YOU or make YOU uncomfortable.

 

But, at the end, YOU are the one who is living YOUR life,

YOU have every right to choose what YOU need to make YOU happy.

 

“Being selfish” may sound bad.

But sometimes “being selfish” may be necessary to be YOU.

 

Because, at the end, YOU are the one who is living YOUR life,

YOU have every right to choose what YOU need to make YOU happy.

 

It’s YOU that is important.

Don’t lose YOU because YOU should be the one who steers your life in the direction of happiness.

 

Be Expressive

Be expressive.

This should be a life motto.

Express yourself through whatever you want to use.

Music, dancing, drawing, cooking, writing, smiling, crying, shouting, clapping hands, fashion, sports, research, taking pictures, making speeches…

Be expressive.

This should be a life motto.

Of course, not everybody is going to agree with what you are feeling.

But it is worth expressing.

Your voice may be drowned out by others who also have rights to express.

But it is worth expressing.

Show what you feel.

Tell what you want.

Ask for help.

Claim your opinions.

Even though it is a small voice at first,

you will be surely heard at the end.

Be expressive.

This should be a life motto.
