Letting Your Past Hinder You

Your past has its way of creeping back into your life when you are trying to move forward or at the tip of going through a transformation. It’s like the devil trying to steal your joy when you are the happiest. Everyone past isn’t always bad but there are some things we want to leave behind. Just for the simple fact that you have grown as a person. You’re leveling up into a better version of yourself.

When you let your past hinder your life that’s when you have a problem on your hands. Maybe you never got some type of closure you needed from a situation. Or there is some guilt that still lingers inside you from what happened. Your mind will give you “what if” thoughts to figure out how you could’ve fixed your past mistakes. All the events will keep replaying in your head. It clogs your mind from living better in the present moment. Think of it as a distraction. 

Unfortunately, we can’t go back in time to change what happened. We do have control into not letting a situation happen again and accept the past for what it is. You can’t keep letting the past eat you up inside. Face those demons so you can move on. The more you let those mistakes hold you back the longer it will take you to feel free again. No more getting upset about it being thrown back up in your face. Once you own up to it then it won’t bother you anymore. Your past gave you experiences that you needed to go through in order for you to learn who you are as a person.

Letting your past hinder you won’t make you happy. Let go of the worries on how it may affect your present or future life. You still have a chance on shaping things out the way you want it to be. Past mistakes are left behind for a reason. So, tell me do you believe that your past have hinder you from certain things in life?

Tired of Being the Strong Person

Sometimes you get tired of being the strong person that’s there for everyone. They seem so dependent on you to fix what they have going on. Which you don’t mind helping any way that you can but there are times when you need someone to return the favor. You have your days when you want to break down too. Sometimes you need some motivation to keep pushing through.

If you are expected to be the strong friend or person in your group it’s okay to sometimes let your circle know you need them to be there for you. Express how you feel because maybe they are not aware of what’s going on. Remember you’re the person that’s good at making things seem like they’re all together. Sure, you don’t try to put on a fake persona that everything is perfect. You may just give out that vibe that you’re fine majority of the time.

Most people forget that the strong friend, cousin, mother, father… etc need people to lean on too. They carry on the weight of their problems plus other problems too. It’s like they’re the superhero that’s expected to save everyone and put their own personal needs to the side. Sometimes they need someone to cater to them. Like I said earlier return the favor back to them. Especially if they always are there for you through your tough times.

If you know someone that’s around you that seems to be fine all the time. Try to check up on them and make sure they are actually doing good. Even though they might not always tell you that something may be going on with them. Deep down inside they will appreciate you checking up on them or even tell you that they appreciate you for asking how they are doing. Showing that you care can go a long way trust me.

Do you have any stories to tell about a strong person in your life? Or are you the person that’s expected to be strong all the time? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Envious People Don’t Show Genuine Support

There is a point in your life where you are able to see who genuinely supports you. When you get to that stage it shows you who really care about seeing you live your best life. Envious people don’t want to see you succeed though. They will do everything in their power to stop you from making it towards your success.

Even if the person or people don’t openly show their jealousy just know they express how they REALLY feel about you behind closed doors. The venom of their words speaks negativity in your path. They could be praying hard for you to crumble. Those are the type of people you have to keep an eye on. They can’t be trusted.

Think about it this way let’s say you open up a new business and trying to gain more exposure. So, you publicly announce how it would be great to have people you are close to help you out a bit with spreading the word. There are a couple of people who give you the help and support you need with sharing/liking/commenting on your posts, telling people they may know about your business, and actually buying your product.

Then you got the person who is around you all the time and clearly knows what you’re trying to do claim that they support your business. You may see this person or people as a friend or close family. They will tell you to your face “Oh, I love what you’re doing. I’m going to buy one of your products to show my support for you.” or they may tell you they will like and share whatever you post about your business. The funny thing is they never do any of those things. Yeah, a person may get busy and not be on social media all the time or may have other things going on so they may not see every little thing down their timeline. Or have a clue with what’s happening.

My point is that they are always nowhere to be found when you need a little support but you will see them going above and beyond for other folks. It may make you feel some type of way because you thought they cared about you. Some of you probably still think well that still doesn’t mean the person is jealous of what you are trying to do.

Let’s be real if a person is a true supporter of what you’re doing they will make some effort to show you that they care. An envious person will purposely not be there for you, throw slick opinions at you, and make sure they are around you while you’re having a hard time. I bet they won’t be around when you are successful because that’s what they never wanted to see in the first place.

Watch who you share your dreams and ambitions with. Some people are jealous of your ability to push towards your dreams. They might even see potential in you that you don’t see in yourself at the moment.  Keep your circle full with people who want to see you win in life.

Too Many Sex Partners

Sex is a feeling that many people crave. In some situations, it can turn into an addiction. Nowadays sex is no “big deal” to most people. The real problem comes into play when a person starts having too many sexual partners. Hey, I’m not trying to bash anyone in this article so calm down. I just want to make certain individuals aware of what they’re doing.

First of all, when you want to get yourself sexually involved with someone make sure you know what you’re doing. Sex is nothing to play around with. You share bodily fluids with someone else, feelings are involved (sometimes), STDS, and even pregnancies. Do you fully evaluate the person you want to have sex with? Maybe what you are feeling towards that person is only temporary. Are there times when you think to yourself the effects that sex may cause on you? Sure you may see it as something fun to do at the moment. But think about it this way is the sex worth giving a piece of yourself to the other person. Show a little respect towards yourself because not everybody deserves to get an intimate taste of you. 

Especially if you have a circle of people you like to have sex with. How many sex partners is enough? Look, it’s nothing wrong with having some fun. Don’t think I’m trying to preach to you or think I am some full ball of innocence because that’s not the intention of this article. You’re not going to find your emotional fulfillment in sex. No matter how many people you mess around with. Sex can cause so much confusion. Don’t let yourself get caught up in the hype. Just be careful about having too many partners you want to sleep with.

What’s your thoughts on someone that has too many sex partners? Feel free to express your opinion.

Is Cheating Acceptable? (Podcast Episode Included)

Nowadays people make it seem like cheating is normal. That’s not cool at all. What happened to taking relationships seriously? Nobody wants to have real love. They want to be in relationships just to say they have a companion. It’s hard to find someone who practices old school love.

Most people think it’s fun and okay to have someone on the side whether it’s a male or female. They don’t care at all. Having the best of both worlds is only on their mind.

Listen to my podcast episode to hear more about what I have to say about cheating being acceptable.

Start Living for Yourself

There is a point in your life when you must start living for yourself. When I say start living for yourself I mean making yourself happy and not letting anyone or anything get in the way of your happiness.

You have to break old bad habits. Explore new opportunities or hobbies. Figuring out how to make yourself happy first. Your opinion about yourself matters the most. Remember you are your biggest critic.

That’s why you need to make the effort to make yourself happy. Happiness is the key to living a comfortable life. Opening up that gate of happiness will give you a lifetime full of satisfaction. You won’t have many regrets, unlike the person who didn’t take the risk of finding their true happiness.

Another thing you will start noticing is your self-worth or value. That’s when you know you don’t deserve to deal with BS. There will be something inside you that puts you on a high level of confidence.

Just remember it’s nothing wrong with being selfish about your wants and needs. Even if it’s something out of the ordinary it shouldn’t stop you from doing it. Start living for yourself. Don’t worry about pleasing everyone else. You are in control of your own happiness.

Words Do Hurt People Feelings

It’s time to talk about how much words do hurt people. I know you remember that saying “sticks and stones may break my bones but words don’t hurt.” This saying is not true at all. Honestly, words hurt worse than getting hurt physically. It hits you in a deep kind of way. The type of pain that never goes away. It really hits you to the core.

Especially if you hear those hurtful words from someone that you are close with. Those people know the wrong words to say at the wrong time. I feel like if a person says something that makes you upset in an emotional way. Then you should keep your distance away from there. Most of the time they say comments to hurt your feelings because that’s their intentions anyway. They want to see you upset or have a downfall. Also, it’s best to keep your distance if you express to them that what they say hurts you and they ignore what you told them.  

Not everyone takes what a person says lightly. That’s why you should watch what you say to people. Even if a person doesn’t show you they feel some type of way about certain things you might’ve said to them. You can still feel a weird vibe between the two of you if you are around them or whenever you communicate with them. You never know what a person is going through. What you say to them might trigger them to spazz out or even worse commit suicide or at least try to. Not everyone is mentally stable to handle certain things. If you have sense enough to know that what you may say to a person won’t be nice. Then you should keep it to yourself. It’s nothing wrong with speaking your mind. You just need to learn how to speak your mind in a respectful way. 

Share your opinion on how words hurt people feelings. Do you consider the person sensitive? If you had an experience with someone hurting your feelings by what they said to you share your story. That’s if you don’t mind telling it. 

Click here to listen to my podcast episode “Words Do Hurt.” I go into even more details on how words hurt a person feelings.

4 Places You Can Buy Cheap Books From

Finding the perfect store to buy cheap books is difficult if you don’t know where to go. Even though books are not cheap at all. It’s still nice to find some place where to can buy books in your price range. Hopefully, the stores that are listed below become your favorite place to shop for books.

1) Goodwill: If you have this thrift store in your town and city stop by and take a look in the store. They have a good variety of used books. Recently, I went to my local Goodwill store to find some books. The books I bought were very cheap and in good condition. I got 5 books for $4.97 USD. Man, when I walked out that store I felt so good. Imagine if I went to Barnes and Noble. I probably would’ve spent $100 or more on 5 books.

2) Thriftbooks: I have ordered from their website twice. One night I was on YouTube and I discover their site. I was so hyped about it. I felt like I hit the jackpot. Anyways, they are an online site that sells new and used books. You can find any book you can imagine on their site. You only have to spend at least $10 to get free shipping. That’s a deal right there. Most of the book prices start from $3.79 on up. On my first order of books I bought from them I got 4 books for $15.86 USD. The second set of books I order from them I got 5 for books for $20.24 USD. Click here to check out thriftbooks.com.

3) Walmart: If you shop at Walmart to do grocery shopping you should stop by their book section. They update the section frequently. Usually, when I visit their book section they have books that just been released or been out for a while. Most of the time their book prices start at $5.00 or more. I’ve bought a good bit of books out of their store.

4) Dollar Tree: Sometimes this store can have a good selection of books if you’re open to reading any genre. Also, some Dollar Tree stores have a better book selection than others. Make sure you go to a good one. Usually, when I look through their books I take my time and look extra hard through them lol. I’m very picky when it comes to picking out a good book. The reason this store is on the list because their books are only $1.00 USD plus tax. The tax is only like 0.08 though. You will be surprised at what kind of books you are able to find out of there. You may see one of your favorite author books in there.

If you get a chance make sure you check out the stores that were mention in the article. Have you ever bought books from any of the stores that were mention? Do you know any more stores that sell books at a cheap price? If so, feel free to comment the store names.

How to Manifest a Good Life

It’s time for you to start manifesting a positive or good life. You deserve to live a life full of happiness. I’m going to give you a couple of tips on how to manifest the life you want to live.

How to Start

When you want to manifest things into your life. First, you must get yourself mentally prepared. Clear your head, start meditating, or do anything that’s going to open your mind to new things. Because you will have to get into the routine of thinking positive and speaking things into existence. Any time you want something in life you have to claim it like you already have it. That’s the key to bringing whatever you’re wishing for to enter your life. Plus, you must have some type of faith or belief in it also. One day take a moment to think and write down a list of items or things you want.

For example, you can write down something like I want a new car, a new house, a baby, lose weight, and a job promotion. Those are just a couple of things. After you write your draft find a notebook or journal that you will only use to write about things you are manifesting. When you find the perfect little book, you want to write in. Open up the book put the date in the top right corner or where ever you prefer. Start writing your first entry. When you start writing make sure you’re writing it in the present tense. Let’s say you want to write down you want a new car. Write the sentence like “I have a new blue 2018 Toyota Corolla.” Write the sentences like you already have the item or the event is happening in your life.

Speak it in Existence 

This tricks your mind into thinking that you have it. As you keep writing every day what you want to have. You will eventually start seeing how your life will change for the better. You must get yourself in the habit of writing what you want at least every day, thinking positive, and having faith.

Also, another thing you need to do is when you are speaking about your problems aloud avoid saying negative things like “I am so broke.” Try rephrasing that sentence and say “I will have more money coming soon” or anything that will prevent you from saying you’re broke. Breaking the habit of saying words like can’t, won’t, never… etc. is tough trust me I know exactly how hard it is. Then I remind myself I have to speak positive words aloud to keep positivity around me. Anyways, like I was saying to break the habit of speaking negative words aloud.

Another thing you need to know is when you are manifesting things into your life keep it a secret to yourself. Don’t share it with anyone else. The reason I tell you that is because you could confide in a friend or family member about what you want to manifest, and they try to pretend to be happy for you in your face. Behind closed doors or in their head they could be wishing for your downfall. You don’t want their negative thinking or thoughts aloud to affect what you have going on. Also, make sure the journal you’re writing is in a good hiding spot. Put it in a place where no one can find it and read what you wrote. It’s your private journal.

My challenge for you is to practice what I taught you in this article. Is this your first time hearing about manifesting something? If not, explain your story about manifesting what you want in life.
