I know people are different.
Followings are from personal experience and expression. No any offense to anyone intended.
Please use them as information. As the sayings go, If the shoe fits, wear it.
Let’s get started.
Love is finite. If you keep giving without receiving, you’ll find yourself emptied out real soon.
Love with your heart. Not with your whole heart, though, leave some for you. Don’t regret. Learn and move forward. The flaws will appear in time. Don’t force yourself to accept the flaws of your relationship because it will eventually break you. If it’s over, it’s over. Don’t fall in love right away. Heal and grow. Ask all the questions in the beginning to save yourself from a possible heartache in the long run. Give space, but talk things out with your partner.
Love yourself more than you love him. So it’s not gonna hurt that much when things didn’t work out.
Love yourself more. Value your worth, so if the relationship fails, I know it’s painful but you will handle it by faith and you can survive without that person. Every failed relationship is a way of learning to become a better you.
Make sure that you are not the only one who has anything to contribute to the divorce. Because the useless, disrespectful, entitled half will take it all and still ask, ‘Where’s the rest of it?’ So make sure you tell them to get off, work harder, save money, start a retirement account, and don’t blow $30,000 out of our business account on non-business-related purchases and then blame others.
Move on sooner than later. Time is the most valuable thing you’ll ever have.
Never beg someone to love or be with you, because if someone truly and utterly cares about you, they will treat you as a priority.
Never compromise your own comfort for someone else’s demands.
Never ever lose yourself in the midst of loving someone else. Because when they decide to leave, you’re left with nothing and you’ll have to go through all the hard process alone, searching for your lost self.
Never expect someone to love you that way you love them. And if someone truly loves you, he would never make reason to hurt you.
Never get used to emotional and verbal abuse. You are worth more than that.
Never give more than they are willing to offer. Never wait for the other person to change and leave when it serves you best. Don’t feel bad about it.
Never leave anything at their house that you would not want to lose. It is not worth the trouble to try to get it back.
Never lose yourself or change to make another happy. You will end up alone.
Never make someone a priority if you’re only an option to them.
Never regret what happened with you and your ex. Things happen for a reason. Don’t get mad with your ex. Forgive him and forgive yourself as well. Learn to accept the fact that it is over. Remind yourself that there’s always better to come along, and surround yourself with positivity.
Never share your family secrets. they will use it to haunt you later.
Never stick around with someone who is willing to treat you so bad and not feel bad about it. If they’re treating you like doormat, they don’t love you or care for you.
Never try to argue with a drunk, just leave!
No matter how good you were together once the other stopped choosing you, it’s over. Also, no matter what you’ve been through. you gotta thank them for the memories. I’m pretty sure it’s not all bad. Just thank them but don’t dwell on it.
No matter how much you love the other person, never let them hurt your self-respect and always trust your gut feelings; blind trust leads to destruction.
No matter how much you want your relationship to be your last, you cannot force someone to stay if they choose to give up on you. Also, you can’t force something that isn’t meant to work out in the first place.
Not to overdo things when the friendship is still fresh. Keep your feelings to yourself and not complicate things. Now, a friendship is lost. No relationship at all.
Nothing lasts forever, no attachments in life with things or other people. Best way is stay in love with yourself no matter what and let the universe lead you.
Once consistency stops and distance starts. It’s time to stop lying to yourself and leave. Stop making excuses for him. Because there will be a time where all you find yourself doing is giving. And that feeling of being empty comes into play. Almost like you are being robbed of life. Don’t be afraid to be alone. Because it’s so much worse being with someone and still feeling alone.
One of the important lessons to learn is to not chase after people. If you lose someone, don’t allow their absence to make you lose yourself, too. You were fine before you met them, so you can learn how to be happy again without them. You are strong, beautiful and you will be okay.
Pain never ends. It may dull it, but it never ends.
Pay attention to what someone says vs. what they do.
People are fickle and treat partners like disposable objects. Now with so much social media and too many choices, a simple disagreement and it’s just too easy to swipe right or swipe left or whatever to find another. Sad world.
People are who they are. You can’t change them. Even if they wish to change (and do), any trauma in the relationship can bring them back right to the beginning and the actions that they revert to.
People aren’t always who they seem to be.
People come and go. You don’t get to choose who will stay. A nine-year relationship ended over a month-old ‘not so good kind’ of friendship. When it’s time to choose, guess who did he let go.
Proving yourself will never be a guarantee that he will choose you! Love yourself!
That’s all you have! YOURSELF!
Relationships are not doomed to fail. It is a two-person friendship. Both people have to be prepared to sacrifice things to make it work. And both need to support each other through tough times. Relationships are not for everyone, but they are not designed to fail. They are what the two people in them make it.
Relationships are work, but after being in a good relationship vs. a bad one, I’ve learned that while the work can be hard, it shouldn’t make you miserable. The work should feel rewarding and not make you stressed beyond belief. I hate that saying that the more you suffer for a relationship, the stronger it is. No. That’s bull. The right person won’t make you suffer.
Self-love is the foundation of any relationship.
Self-worth, first to listen before jumping to conclusions, if the other person wants to not think it’s the end of self.
Some exes deserve to be forgiven.
Others deserve to be forgotten.
Some may be more suited for you than others, and you may think you found the perfect person for you but the ONE is a myth. I don’t believe anyone who says they found the ONE because the person you found is someone you liked best from the pool you were exposed to, and not the entire population on the planet.
There is no ONE perfect person for you that you need to constantly be in search of. Bottom line, every relationship, whatever the degree of compatibility of the couple, is a lot of work and can survive only with willful commitment to work on themselves and the relationship. You, your partner, and your relationship will always be works in progress. Embrace that.
You can’t give someone everything all the time, nor can you expect it. You are both perpetually learning from each other and life, growing together and trying to give each other the best, also bringing out the best in the other person.
The grass always seems greener on the other side, but realize the value of what is in front of you. This doesn’t mean you settle or compromise beyond your breaking point. Just learn to appreciate things for what they are rather than be deluded into a never-ending search for something better; spoiled by every iteration of ‘happily ever afters’ in the movies and books. Real life starts AFTER the fairy-tale ending in the books and the movies.
Some people aren’t looking for love. They’re looking for help.
Someone who truly loves you would never leave you to deal with depression on your own after they get knowledge of it. And most definitely won’t do it over Whatsapp and while on a business trip to Sweden, especially if it has been 10 years. And then come back when they see you’re finally doing better and are ready to move on to better things or people.
Sometimes it’s better to let go and move on than it is to fight for something that only one of you truly wants.
Sometimes people just come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. Just gotta learn to decipher between them.
Sometimes, a satisfying lie can do more good than the awful truth.
Stand up for yourself. Make your wants and needs known. Communicate.
Stay true to yourself. And don’t be okay with a meddling mother in law.
Suicide is just that. Someone chose to end his or her life. That is not your fault. YOU did not choose it!
Supportive of their decision. Listen before you project your opinion or thoughts. Always remain calm.
That abuse is not just physical and never changes.
That even after years together with no previous signs they can still snap one night and beat the crap out of you in front of your kid without provocation. Relationship done, left that night after leaving the hospital. Not looking back.
That even you’ve given everything to that person, if you’re not the person whom he wants, you will never be enough. No if’s, no but’s.
That every ‘I love you’ doesn’t come from the heart, but it’s just to please the other party.
If his children aren’t his NUMBER ONE priority, it will never work out.
That it is true, you accept the love you think you deserve. When you realize you deserve better, it kind of smacks you in the face. I didn’t equate the disrespect I was used to receiving as anything but being ‘pushed to be better.’ These days, I am pushed to be better by someone who shows their love and support for who I already am as well as who I want to become. I know now that I deserve a great love, and I found it.
That it’s easy to end up settling for less when you fall in love with a person.
That it’s not healthy being codependent.
I’m good just as I am.
Life is too short to be unhappy!
People can only change if they want to, not because you want them to.
Relationships are designed to fail 90% of the time and people should be whole within themselves before trying to find someone else to fill the void.
The advice I heard as a child ‘you have to be nice to everybody or they won’t like you,’ was terrible advice.
There are people out there who love you so dearly but simply do not know how to express themselves or show their love to you.
There’s no one that really got away. No, they did not get away but it was a choice of either you or the other person. Two separate ways. Because if you guys are really meant to be, no matter how long or short the relationship is, you will always find ways to stay.
Until love is tested by trying times you will not really know who loves truly. Wait till adversity comes; it’s easy to love when it’s all rosy!
You cannot allow yourself to be in a relationship with some unfinished issues with yourself. It is really important that you have to know yourself in every aspect so that you will know exactly what you really want. The other one is be in a relationship because you really want to be with that person and not just because you just want some company. It’s truly unfair for the both of you being stuck in a relationship just for the sake of being in.
You cannot make someone love you.
No matter how hard you try!
You have the right to speak up about how you feel, not needing to be afraid offending your partner especially if it’s the truth.
The BEST revenge is to move on. No Facebook insta-friends, no following. No thirsty pics. Delete, unfollow, learn a lesson and be fabulous.
The flip side of ‘you can’t change someone’ is ‘don’t become something you’re not for somebody else.’ You’re better off holding out for someone who accepts you as-is that you also accept as-is.
The importance of fighting fair. When you’re angry and just saying anything you can to hurt the other person, whether it’s true or not-that’s not fighting fair. You can never take back the things you say in those moments and the other person can never forget them. My husband and I fight plenty, but even when I am at my angriest with him, I don’t fight dirty and I never say something just to hurt him. An argument should still be productive.
The relationship failed. I am not a failure. I learned that the person that leave are NOT connected to my destiny.
The ugly truth is better than a pretty lie.
Time heals almost everything. The pain does go away.
Always listen to your intuitions and acknowledge your instincts! That ‘little voice’ that tells you some things that someone is doing and saying is toxic for you, should never be ignored because this voice you hear is your wake up call to finding yourself again!
Be careful not to be too selfless, because they will use you. They know what’s your weakness. To really LISTEN to UNDERSTAND. That even the ugliest guy cheats and doesn’t appreciate.
Engage in a relationship only when you are really in love, and not because you feel needy of love.
Never compromise your self-worth to make someone else feel better.
Stop waiting on others people’s potential. When people show you their true colors, believe them the first time!
Understand and practice the person’s love language. It is important to continue to date your spouse and surprise them.
Waiting around for a man to change is the biggest mistake I have ever made. A leopard’s spots never change. It took me years to realize this.
We all have our own imperfections. I’m not perfect. My partner isn’t, either. But you shouldn’t find perfection in another person.
We’ll meet that perfect person in our life but no matter how perfect they are sometimes they are just not perfect for us. At the end of the day, we should just be happy having to meet the person we used to love who also loved us, and accept the fact that relationships end because on the long way run we tend to say things we don’t mean and hurt the person we love and who loves us. You don’t talk to each other like that before but now you do.
What is meant for you will be yours; learn to let go. there’s a difference between somebody who wants you and somebody who would do anything to keep you.
What lasts long doesn’t come easy, and what comes easy doesn’t last long.
What you want can’t always be found in someone else.
When someone continues to hurt you, end the relationship. It really is that simple. It matters not who they are. Put some boundaries up; if they still hurt you, move on!
When someone decides they don’t love you, there’s nothing you can do to change their mind. And it has nothing to do with you.
When someone shows you who they are, believe them. Actions will ALWAYS speak louder than words eventually. There will come a time where words won’t mean much.
Fall in love with someone who doesn’t make you think love is hard. True love should be as natural as breathing. Don’t ignore your instincts. Be with someone who values you completely. and who sees you the way you’ve always wanted to see yourself. Someone who would never intentionally hurt you verbally, emotionally, or physically. Someone who can apologize sincerely. Someone who is all in, your teammate, your partner in life. They don’t make you work for or prove your value to them or your relationship. Someone who makes your relationship their priority.
When you he lies to you and promises not to do it again, HE WILL. A couple more times because he knows you’ll forgive him. That’s mess-up love.
With any relationship problem, there are three sides to it: his, your, and the objective reality. I have seen way too many promising relationships being abandoned prematurely because one or both of them are unwilling to consider the objective reality owing to the reinforcement of their own negative delusions. Everyone thinks they are right and what suffers is something beautiful together that could have been.
You can never love someone without loving yourself first. Self love will make you realize your worth and be worthy of someone.
You can’t get everything that you want, including how badly you want them to stay.
You can’t make anyone love you no matter what you have money, clothes, etc., if they really love you then they don’t really care about what you have. and if they show ‘love’ when you have a lot but show no love when you have nothing. Then that was NEVER love.
You can’t settle. You may have started out great, but the second you both start to realize you want different things, it’s time to let it go. No matter how much you love that person, you need to love yourself first. Also, if there is no trust, you are not gonna last. You need to be able to trust your partner.
You cannot expect a fairy tale ending with someone who is treating you unfairly from the start.
You cannot give what you don’t have. Love yourself first. Then let love flow.
You make your own happiness. You shouldn’t take the blame for someone else’s faults; they have to own their own. Don’t let anyone hit you or talk down to you. Learn to say ‘enough is enough.’
Never expect the same kind of love you give in return. You’ll end up focused on the ideal relationship you want which isn’t gonna happen.
Trusts vs. mistrust. If you can’t, he can’t, either. Be open and vocal.
If it changes you, you’re either fooled or prioritized.
Being loved twice as much you love them is way better.
Karma hits hard. Let them have a taste of their own medicine.
You cannot love someone so much to make them love you back.
You have to put yourself first.
I know people are different.
Followings are from personal experience and expression. No any offense to anyone intended.
Please use them as information. As the sayings go, If the shoe fits, wear it.
Let’s get started.
What’s the quickest way to die every day? Love someone who doesn’t love you in return.’ That’s what I have learned. that kind of pain every day never ends.
A decision made when your heart and mind are not in peace is not the right decision.
A monogamist and a polygamist will never, ever work out.
Acceptance, self-respect, letting go, getting over, and never stop moving forward.
Never lower your standards or allow anyone to treat you badly, and you can’t force anyone to love you. If they want to walk away just let them, look forward to the better things that are coming rather than wasting tears over someone who isn’t worth it.
Age is not an indication of maturity. A man can be in his 40’s and still behave like a teenage boy. It’s on how open they are to change and stepping up to responsibility. Also, if you catch him lying about important things thrice. Once is forgivable. Twice can be considered, but three major lies indicate something really wrong with this person and his lack of respect for you as a human being.
Trust your instincts. If you feel something isn’t right in a relationship. Then definitely it isn’t right. Don’t brush it off. Don’t give excuses.
Just because you’re married does not mean you can treat your spouse any way you please. A desperate needy man is very unattractive. Hating that person only chains you to him. Forgive him not because that person deserves it but to set yourself free.
Always go with your instinct. If someone doesn’t feel right for you, just walk away rather than settle or expect them to change. Whether they change or not is out of your control. ALWAYS learn something about yourself from that experience to inform yourself in the next one.
Always remember that you can’t make homes in people.
Always Respect Yourself. Don’t settle for a man that doesn’t show his true identity.
Always trust your gut instinct and be true to yourself. Never let a person make you feel like you aren’t worth the best.
Ask more questions, talk to old girlfriends or ex-wives, plus family.
Be as good to yourself as you want to be to them.
Be brave enough not to sacrifice self-respect. Never expect from broken promises. Continue living up with your dreams no matter how broken or how devastated you are. Don’t ignore the red flags that consistently show up.
Be happy. Be positive. Never regret meet anyone coz each of them teaches you something. Forgive and forget. Don’t ruin your self-worth just because you trust. Don’t be a cheater just because your ex didn’t appreciate your loyalty. Appreciate everything. Try to let it go. You deserve to be happy. Love yourself before you love someone else. Stop judging yourself.
Be in love with the person, not your love story.
Be yourself. No compromising on that one thing.
Begging someone to stay is the biggest mistake you will ever make. And you’ll regret it for life. Recognize your anxiety on time and control it. Also let go of your past when it’s over. It has the ability to destroy your present and future together the longer you hold it. And above all, self-love is the answer to everything.
Being a good woman will never keep a man. The only thing that will keep a man is a man that wants to be kept.
Break your own heart first. If you come to the realization that they way you’re being treated isn’t right, end it and stick to your guns no matter what.
Build on it, use it to grow. Mistakes are only failures when we don’t learn from them.
Communication and trust are the most important; with those you can conquer any storm.
Despite the pain and headache of a failed relationship, know that you can love unconditionally without any expectations.
Do not be overprotective of your partner. He will take you for granted.
Do not change yourself to make the other person like you more or to make them feel comfortable.
Don’t be too dependent on your emotional needs to others. Love yourself enough that you need not to look for a love from others.
Don’t beg for a spot in his life. If he really wanted you, you’d know it.
Don’t date an immature guy expecting he will grow up, especially if he’s narcissistic. He won’t.
Don’t depend your happiness to anyone or anything. Happiness must be within in you. Being alone does not mean being lonely.
Don’t ever disregard red flags. Never settle for less than what you deserve. Be firm, know your worth. Never lower your standards. Be strong enough to stand up for yourself and your beliefs. You could bend for them, but don’t ever break the rules you’ve set to protect yourself. Be wise, every single time.
Don’t expect a cheater to change. If he is always looking for attention of others after all you give, it’ll never be enough. And he’s may be a narcissist.
Don’t force it for convenience’s sake. Learn to say goodbye. You’re not only freeing yourself and the other person from a lifetime of unhappiness.
Don’t force someone to love you. Don’t give 100% of your love to someone. Just remain half for yourself.
Don’t forget who you are while trying to make someone else happy. Things that make you happy matter, too.
Don’t forgive a cheater. They were fine doing it once, they will be fine doing it again and you don’t deserve that.
Don’t ignore your own feelings. If you think that the relationship you are in is wrong, then it is. Never settle for words, always pay attention to how they treat you. And don’t forget to not get lost; make sure you know your way back.
Don’t let anyone make you question your worth and it’s OK to be selfish sometimes.
Don’t let him change you ever. Love yourself.
Don’t let your compassion be confused for apathy or passiveness.
Don’t let yourself be pressured into a relationship you don’t want just because all your friends like that friend better, the person keeps crying about it, and everyone is saying ‘you should give them a chance.’
Don’t love too much. Don’t trust too fast. Don’t give an effort unless he do the same thing too. Don’t let him treat you like a hell. If he told you that she is just a friend and he only loved you, please don’t trust him. He got some feeling for her. And the most important thing is if you already gave him too many chances to changed but he blew those chances, you already knew that he only take you for granted.
Don’t miss out on something good just because it’s different than what you planned. Sometimes, it’s okay to change your dreams and take a chance. And sometimes, love just isn’t enough. But if you are lucky, when one door closes, whether on purpose or accidentally, another will open.
Don’t rely your happiness on anything but yourself.
Don’t settle for less than you deserve. If that person makes you doubt yourself and can’t accept your past mistakes, flaws, shortcomings, and differences, then he’s definitely not the right person.
Don’t settle for unhappiness. Don’t make excuses for someone else’s terrible behavior. Know your own worth and don’t settle for someone who only cares for themselves.
Don’t stay for a one-time high if they’ve given you an all-time low. You can’t be the only one giving 100% all the time while they give you 100% once in a blue moon.
Don’t stay just because you’re afraid of what others think. Don’t see leaving as failure. Knowing yourself well enough to know when something isn’t healthy for you anymore is a great accomplishment. Chances are that your friends and family are waiting for you to leave anyway and are prepared to jump to help you.
Don’t trust anyone. Anyone can look you straight in the eye, tell you they love you but never mean it.
Every single thing that happens, good or bad, is happening for you and your growth & evolution.
Feeling sad won’t last and at some point, you won’t even think about this guy anymore.
Find someone with the same life goals as you. You cannot spend your life waiting for your partner to be ready when they clearly don’t want the same thing, whatever that may be.
Forgive and move forward. Don’t chase. If you love someone, set them free, if they come back, it was meant to be.
Just remember, it goes both ways. Love yourself enough to set yourself free, also.
Give your very best so you won’t have any regrets at the end, but never ever forget to love yourself. If you know how to value and love yourself, you then know how to love others.
Giving people lots of chances will just break your heart more.
Go slow. If someone is rushing into anything you’re not ready for, that’s a red flag.
Have your own life. Make yourself happy. Don’t rely on someone to make you happy. Enjoy spending time with yourself. Have self-fulfillment.
He told me that ‘you can’t love anyone if you don’t know how to loved yourself’ and maybe that’s the reason he had to leave.
Heartbreak sucks, but without pain we could never appreciate the good. I find the ‘one.’ I have gained insights and friendships I could have never imagined and I have grown to be more myself at every end. So here is to you, relationships of my past; without you I would not be me.
How long you’ve been with somebody doesn’t solidify the relationship, it’s the quality of the relationship that does that.
I always tell myself there’s no such thing as a failed relationship. it’s just two people whose paths were only meant to cross for a little while.
I am a hard-headed strong woman and I deserve someone who accepts that and does not expect me to change. I deserve someone who has my best interests in mind and understands that my dreams comes before anybody else. I deserve someone who loves me so deeply that my cheeks hurt from smiling too much and that learns my way of returning love. Without all of the failed relationships I would not have learned any of this.
I guess I could sum it all up to patience. I was too impatient with myself that it caused me to question my self-worth and made me dive into a relationship I wasn’t ready for. I’ve learned to be more patient with myself and understand my value as a woman. I’ve learned to be patient with others in understanding their true intentions…
I have learned there is someone in life that you are meant to be with, try and be patient.
I learned that it’s perfectly OK to love someone but not be with them, which freed me from the immature notion that I HAVE to be with the person I love. And I learned that I will love a lot of people, so losing one just makes way for the next one.
I learned that no matter how long you’ve been together or how many times you’ve given forgiveness, they will still LEAVE YOU. The painful thing was when they just left you without answers on why. I realize the “why” does not matter. Just move on. Cry if you need to, but then when you’re done. Focus on what matters. Be brave and learn to love and take care of yourself more.
I learned that no matter how much you love the person, it doesn’t guarantee that he will stay with you forever.
I learned that you need to have your own life as well. We thought that it’s ideal if you and your significant other do everything together. But you know what? It’s no good. You need to be happy on your own. Don’t depend your happiness to him. I also learned that trust is important and so is honesty. It’s not a failed relationship. It’s a successful one. I learned a lot from it. I am treasuring all the memories.
I won’t shed another tear for someone who can’t talk about what is going on. Relationships are work and rewarding when both put in the work.
I’ve learned that it’s not easy to handle the pain. Really, very painful. If I get a chance to bring back the past, I wish I didn’t meet that person.
If a man truly loves you, he will do anything to keep you.
If he is not ready, you can never change that. If he really wants you and really wants to be with you, he will never let you go.
If he says he doesn’t want to get married and have kids, you should probably take his word for it. Hold out for the man that does want those things.
If he’s out to change you, he isn’t the one for you.
If someone cheats on you, leave. Don’t give second chances to someone who’s just gonna keep hurting you.
If someone wants to do something, they will. If they don’t, there’ll be a ton of reasons in place of actions.
If someone wants to walk away let them go. Just because a door closes doesn’t mean another door won’t open.
If the effort isn’t matched, leave.
If they are not ‘what’ you want in the beginning, move on.
If they don’t accept you for who you are and help you become a better person instead of constantly criticizing you and judging you for your faults, then they do not truly love you. Love should happen through the good bad and ugly and if they bring you down instead of lifting you up then they ain’t worth it.
If they’re willing to run at the first sign of trouble rather than work through it, walk away. As soon as you become an option, walk away. If they’re not willing to ‘Love’ all of you (the good and the bad), walk away. There will be someone who will love ALL of you including, your flaws all the way down to your core. Forgive those who have hurt you, as peace of mind heals the soul.
If you feel you need to cheat, leave.
If you suspect your other half is cheating, however much they state they are not, they are.
If you’re ever afraid of how your partner might react to literally anything you say even if that thing is not a big deal, get out.
If your husband suggests you get divorced three weeks after the wedding,
TAKE HIM UP ON IT!
It always hurts to love someone who didn’t love you enough.
It doesn’t matter how long you’ve known each other and how much ups and downs you’ve shared. If he decides to leave and turn his back from you, there is nothing you can do. But you can always regain your balance, so long as you have not lost yourself in the process of losing him. Above all, love and respect yourself.
It’s degrading to make someone love you.
It’s important not to get TOO wrapped up in your emotions. Love and attraction are important, but you have to be realistic, too-if you each want completely different things, that’s probably not going to be the best fit. Be able to recognize that you can love someone and they can love you back and you can still be wrong for each other.
It’s not long how you’ve known each other, but how much commitment you have to sustain. Do not ignore the ‘signs.’ Do not ‘focus’ on the goodness they’ve shown; it’s easy to pretend.
Learn to forgive no matter how much the person caused so much pain and no matter how hurtful it is. Forgiving is always associated with forgetting. Forget in a way that you need to move on and keep moving forward even if that person is no longer with you in crossing those paths. Forgive and forget will give you peace of mind.
Learn to love yourself first, because time changes us all. People age, grow up, grow apart, and suddenly all you are left with is YOU.
Learned to use actions to prove it instead of words. Never take the other for granted. Learned to provide support in whichever way is needed.
Let go of anyone that weighs you down.
Letting go! Don’t be so selfish holding on to something that no longer works for you.
Life goes on and love can still be found.
Listen to your heart and your brain. Sometimes, as much as we want something to work, if it’s not meant to be, you have to be realistic and walk away. Life’s too short to waste trying to make something work that just won’t.
Love and compatibility are two equally different things. And a love that is forced is a love that isn’t meant for you.
Love and prioritize yourself. That is the best way to protect yourself from people who want to hurt you. Love without regrets, but learn how to say NO and be assertive as possible. Do not be bossy, demanding, or clingy. Remember, love is a simple thing to do.
Do not over-complicate things.
Love hurts and it’s overrated, but you don’t have to suffer from it. Love yourself first and the right people will come. It may take a lot of work, patience, and mistakes, but what’s meant for you will be there.
Self-love is the foundation of any relationships.
Sadly, most of us have not realized it and we have lived to please anyone around us, but ourselves.
Happiness and self love are an inside job. Learn to love yourself.
This is one of motivational clips in Angel-A.
I used to use #film #camera back in 1990s. I was that trip photographer because I was asked to or I was just a curious soul wanted to experience thing. Until 2010s, I started to explore #digital photography. I learned it by reading user #manual. (Why not YouTube? You might ask. Well, YouTube is too random and repetitive. You would waste too much time on searching for content than sitting and following the manual).
Plus, the more time you spent on consuming materials, the less time you put them into action. The best way to learn is to do while digest some basics. You do not need to know every part of the engines to drive a car.
You should know that some fundamentals are enough to get you started. But the love of the progress is what keeps you motivated to keep going.
As an #introvert, I have a lot of hobbies, #photography one of them which encourages me to #explore more, #do more, #meet more and #enjoy life more. I meet different people from different backgrounds, travel 7 countries within 2 years and do things I have not done before.
It is never late to learn or do something. Who knows, what you learn as a hobby might end up as a career.
Find #three hobbies you love:
One to make you #money (for me: writing, content creation, internet marketing)
One to keep you in #shape (cycling, yoga)
and One to be #creative (photography, videography)
Learn to create. You are happier to be a creator than consumer. The difference is that creator has end goal and satisfaction while consumer will always consume (no limits) and get disappointment. Plus creator makes money 💰 while consumer pays money 💰.
What is your approach to learn something?
What keeps you motivated to keep moving, growing and have fun at the same time?
Happy Year 2020 everyone! 🎆
Welcome to day 1 of 1,000 writing journey.
Thanks to those who keep coming back often in 2019.
I am grateful for everything in 2019 offered.
I am self aware that my writing needs improvement.
Writing 1,000 or #Writing1000 is a journey I commit myself to write a blogpost at least one a day in 1,000 days. “Because I rather write a meh one a day rather than a perfect one in 10 years…blah, blah, blah…” Nah, whatever the reason is, I just do to do whatever I want.
Now here is what I want to share:
[Word of the Day: Appreciate]
📚 I read a book by Harvard professor, Happier by Tal Ben-Shahar.
Most of us took life and everything around us for granted. Even worse, the pace of today life is too fast/busy to slow down to #appreciate life moment.
You are happier and have more to be grateful for than you realize.
What are you grateful for today?
✍️ Write 5 things that you are grateful by the end of the day (before going to sleep), learn to keep this as a journal from now on. Review it everyday and every week. You’ll find yourself happier and have a lot of things to be grateful for.
I am more a private person and always express rather than impress anyone.
But for example sake, I’d express mine here.
🙏 1. I am grateful for my family for “Unconditional Love”. They teach me what “Unconditional Love” really means.
🙏 2. I am grateful for myself for not giving up and keep myself growing personally and professionally. I had more downs than ups for the last three years. Sometimes, there are things you can control, and things you cannot. Looking back, I am proud to myself. How did I do it? I am myself surprised, too. You should take some time to reflect yourself. You are braver, stronger, smarter… than you realize.
🙏 3. I am grateful for Google Keep and its team for letting me keep my journal.
🙏 4. I am grateful for my phone for making my life easier. As a minimalist and a nomad, I do my best to own only what I need. I can do a lot of things with my phone (writing, reading, video making, editing…) I no longer read a paper book as I move from place to place with one tiny bag. I shoot personal photos on the phone more than camera, except for client’s project.
🙏 5. I am grateful for time with my family today. Everyone is here.
Followings are video collections for working out at home or anywhere. There are also Apps which have more advanced features you can customize exercises that fit your situation. Hope it helps!
Note: Do not force yourself too much. Know your limit. Start and stop anywhere, anytime you want. Only you know yourself better. When you feel to stop, let’s call it a day and do it again tomorrow. Start small and do it regularly. Five or ten minutes should be a good start. Healthy life, wealthy life. Let’s do it!

Hi guys! You might notice what books I am reading from my reading list. I commit myself reading at least four books per month. Permanent Record Book by Edward Snowden is one of my favourite this month. Followings are excerpt from the books. Hope you enjoy and get the information.
My name is Edward Joseph Snowden. I used to work for the government, but now I work for the public. It took me nearly three decades to recognize that there was a distinction, and when I did, it got me into a bit of trouble at the office. As a result, I now spend my time trying to protect the public from the person I used to be—a spy for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and National Security Agency (NSA), just another young technologist out to build what I was sure would be a better world.
The reason you’re reading this book is that I did a dangerous thing for a man in my position: I decided to tell the truth. I collected internal IC documents that gave evidence of the US government’s lawbreaking and turned them over to journalists, who vetted and published them to a scandalized world.
This book is about what led up to that decision, the moral and ethical principles that informed it, and how they came to be—which means that it’s also about my life.
What makes a life? More than what we say; more, even, than what we do. A life is also what we love, and what we believe in. For me, what I love and believe in the most is connection, human connection, and the technologies by which that is achieved. Those technologies include books, of course. But for my generation, connection has largely meant the Internet.
I was lost, and fell into a dark mood while I struggled with my conscience. I love my country, and I believe in public service—my whole family, my whole family line for centuries, is filled with men and women who have spent their lives serving this country and its citizens. I myself had sworn an oath of service not to an agency, nor even a government, but to the public, in support and defense of the Constitution, whose guarantee of civil liberties had been so flagrantly violated. Now I was more than part of that violation: I was party to it. All of that work, all of those years—who was I working for? How was I to balance my contract of secrecy with the agencies that employed me and the oath I’d sworn to my country’s founding principles? To whom, or what, did I owe the greater allegiance? At what point was I morally obliged to break the law?
The Internet has become almost as integral to our lives as the air through which so many of its communications travel. And, as we’ve all been reminded—every time our social media feeds alert us to a post that tags us in a compromising light—to digitize something is to record it, in a format that will last forever.
My generation was the last in American and perhaps even in world history for which this is true—the last undigitized generation, whose childhoods aren’t up on the cloud but are mostly trapped in analog formats like handwritten diaries and Polaroids and VHS cassettes, tangible and imperfect artifacts that degrade with age and can be lost irretrievably. My schoolwork was done on paper with pencils and erasers, not on networked tablets that logged my keystrokes.
The doors to the most secretive intelligence agencies were flung wide open to young technologists like myself. And so the geek inherited the earth.
The freedom of a country can only be measured by its respect for the rights of its citizens, and it’s my conviction that these rights are in fact limitations of state power that define exactly where and when a government may not infringe into that domain of personal or individual freedoms that during the American Revolution was called “liberty” and during the Internet Revolution is called “privacy.”
Peering at life through a window can ultimately abstract us from our actions and limit any meaningful confrontation with their consequences.
I was young, and while my curiosity was pure, it was also, in retrospect, pretty psychologically revealing, in that some of my earliest hacking attempts were directed toward allaying my neuroses. The more I came to know about the fragility of computer security, the more I worried over the consequences of trusting the wrong machine. As a teenager, my first hack that ever courted trouble dealt with a fear that suddenly became all I could think about: the threat of a full-on, scorched-earth nuclear holocaust.
When I was a teen, I think I was a touch too enamored of the idea that life’s most important questions are binary, meaning that one answer is always Right, and all the rest of the answers are Wrong. I think I was enchanted by the model of computer programming, whose questions can only be answered in one of two ways: 1 or 0, the machine-code version of Yes or No, True or False.
In the 1990s, the Internet had yet to fall victim to the greatest iniquity in digital history: the move by both government and businesses to link, as intimately as possible, users’ online personas to their offline legal identity.
Once the ubiquity of collection was combined with the permanency of storage, all any government had to do was select a person or a group to scapegoat and go searching – as I’d gone searching through the agency’s files – for evidence of a suitable crime
This, to my thinking, actually represented the great nexus of the Intelligence Community and the tech industry: both are entrenched and unelected powers that pride themselves on maintaining absolute secrecy about their developments. Both believe that they have the solutions for everything, which they never hesitate to unilaterally impose. Above all, they both believe that these solutions are inherently apolitical, because they’re based on data, whose prerogatives are regarded as preferable to the chaotic whims of the common citizen.
The fact is, no one with a biography like mine ever comes comfortably to autobiography. It’s hard to have spent so much of my life trying to avoid identification, only to turn around completely and share “personal disclosures” in a book.
America’s fundamental laws exist to make the job of law enforcement not easier but harder. This isn’t a bug, it’s a core feature of democracy.
I had hoped to serve my country, but instead I went to work for it. This is not a trivial distinction.
Instead, I was resolved to bring to light a single, all-encompassing fact: that my government had developed and deployed a global system of mass surveillance without the knowledge or consent of its citizenry.
The NSA’s surveillance programs, its domestic surveillance programs in particular, flouted the Fourth Amendment completely.
Ultimately, every language, including English, demonstrates its culture’s relationship to power by how it chooses to define the act of disclosure. Even the nautically derived English words that seem neutral and benign frame the act from the perspective of the institution that perceives itself wronged, not of the public that the institution has failed.
Healthy sleep habits can make a big difference in your quality of life. Having healthy sleep habits is often referred to as having good sleep hygiene.
Sleep difficulty or when you have trouble sleeping at night may affect your physical and mental health. Lack of sleep may also cause you to have frequent headaches or trouble concentrating.
Signs of sleeping difficulty may include an inability to focus during the day, frequent headaches, irritability, daytime fatigue, waking up too early, waking up throughout the night, or taking several hours to fall asleep.
Here are 5 Habits to Improve Your Sleep
Habit 1. Adjust/Create Your Sleeping Schedule
Set alarms when to go to bed and when to get up and do it regularly at least one week. In general, you should Early Go to Bed, Early Get Up. You will see/feel the difference.
Stick Wake up at the same time every day. Even if you have a hard time falling asleep and feel tired in the morning, try to get up at the same time (weekends included). This can help adjust your body’s clock and aid in falling asleep at night.
Habit 2. Relax Your Body and Mind
Set aside time at least 60 minutes before going to sleep to do something relaxing like reading, listening to music, taking a shower or bathtub (can relax your muscles).
Habit 3. Devices and Light Off
Disconnect yourself at least one hour before go to sleep from bright light and close-range electronic devices such as laptops, phones, and tablets, as the light from their screens can alert the brain and make it harder to fall asleep.
Habit 4. Choose Your Diet Wisely
Some food and substances can cause insomnia like caffeine, nightshades (potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, and goji berries), alcohol, aged, fermented, cured, smoked, and cultured foods (salami, cheese, sauerkraut, red wine, etc.), sugar, flour, and other refined carbohydrates.
Habit 5. Exercise Regularly
Doing exercise regularly improves both your physical health and mental health. The key is start small and do it regularly (just do it and do not give up).
Remember my favourite quote? Learn to enjoy the journey, not just destination.
Exercise does not have to be boring and take much time. (I will share details on how to exercise and enjoy it at the same time in later post)
Here what you can and should do:
1. Choose activity that you like. If you do not like working out at gym like me (I like open space and nature), strolling while listening to your favourite music can be a good start. I do it every evening 30 or 60 minutes a day, everyday. Yoga, dancing, playing badminton at the backyard with your family, walking your dog, cycling, jogging, swimming and even walking more often to parking lot can be also good exercise.
2. Schedule your time and do it regularly. When to do exercise is also important. In general, you should spend more time in the evening than in the morning as overdo it in the morning can make you exhausted and ruin the day. I spend 15 to 30 minutes in the morning and 60 minutes in the evening. No food and exercise at least two hours before sleep as they can interrupt your sleep or take more time to digest and put you into sleep.
