10 Reminders On How To Treat Yourself And Other People

9:37 AM

We all have different challenges in our lives; some of us have been through or going through some difficult situations. However, we have the power on how to treat ourselves and other people better even if we are going through something. 

Two days to go to mark the second month since I sent a confrontation message to someone (who never responded). After that, I never bother to send a message again or check that person's account as I have already said the things that I wanted to say  and I felt lighter.

I really hope that person has already moved on and living her own life now instead of checking my accounts. I did not want to pity that person so I wished her well instead.

Below, I have listed 10 reminders that might help you reflect on how to treat yourself and the people around you especially when you're going through difficult times:

1. Feeling miserable about your situation doesn't give you the authority to be unkind to others. To be kind is more important than to be right.  Knowing what it feels like to be in pain should be one of our reasons to be kind to one another. Don't ruin other people's happiness just because you can't find your own.

2. Be careful who you pretend to be; you might forget who you are. Everybody has their own strengths and weaknesses, and it is only when you accept everything you are and aren't that you will truly succeed.

3. Don't let bad situations make you do desperate things. You don't need to be everything to everyone. Remember that not everyone cares about what you're going through. Finding comfort for the sake of comfort is somewhat useless. Faking your smile and forcing your laughter to exasperate other people is a desperate move. Stop embarassing yourself.

4. Education without values is nothing. You don't need to be educated to be dignified. No matter how educated, talented, rich, or cool you believe you are, how you treat people ultimately tells all.

5. To change your life, you have to change yourself. To change yourself, you have to change your mindset. No matter what comes your way, shake it off and move forward. When you have a positive mindset, you can't be defeated.

6. Don't let the shadows of yesterday spoil the sunshine of today. It is up to you to see the beauty in everything. The past should be left in the past or it can steal your future. Live life for what tomorrow can bring and not what yesterday has taken away.
7. Sometimes, we need to be hurt in order to grow. We must lose in order to gain. Sometimes, some lessons are learned best through pain. We learn something from everyone who passes through our lives. Some lessons are painful, some are painless, but all are priceless.

8. Don't get upset with the mirror, fix the reflection. A person with good breeding doesn't have to throw dirt on someone's name to feel more secure about himself/herself. Good manners reflect something from inside an innate sense of consideration for others and respect for self.

9. You can do anything but not everything. We have to remember what's important to do rather than trying to do it all.  You can do whatever you want, but the time you have for whatever you want is limited. It's important to figure out what's most important to you and what can wait.

10. To speak and to speak well are two things. I have something to say is different from I have to say something. Half the world is composed of people who have something to say and can't, and the other half who have nothing to say and keep on just talking.

Being surrounded by loving family and my bff has been a great help for me to overcome my situation. As what my bff has told me, "Some people  are unconciously doing desperate things that are not worth your time. Focus on our love, focus on us." 

Start concentrating with the necessary things than being a bitter and hateful person. Seeing other people unhappy just to make yourself feel better is another desperate move. Be kind to yourself so you could find your own happiness.
