Blast from the past.
In this picture I’m with my best friend at the One Direction concert in Seattle last summer. It’s weird that it’s nearly been a year. So much has changed, so much has stayed the same. I was so obsessed with my break up with Caleb that it took over most of my day to day life. Unfortunately, I can’t say that it is over, but I can say it is getting better everyday.
I didn’t know if I was going to get a job offer or what I was going to do when I graduated, and now I’ve graduated and have figured out my next step.
Time has a weird way of changing everything.
So I saw this one quote on Pinterest the other day:
"Bad news is you cannot make people like, love, understand, validate, accept or be nice to you. You can’t control them either. Good news is it doesn’t matter."
I think that’s something that we all need to really think about and figure out. I can’t tell you how much of my time is spent worrying about why people don’t like me or love me or accept me or why people aren’t nice. I think we all need to relax aand stop worrying about people, I’m not sure how you stop worrying, but I’m hoping to figure it out one day. You got to be your own best friend.
There’s another quote, “Invest in people who invest in you.” We have got to stop letting people treat ourselves poorly. I have to just cut the cord and really cut it from the people that are so selfish that they don’t invest their time in you, they only care about themselves. For me the problem is sticking with the cut out, like I end up giving in and texting them then I get mad when they do what I’m upset about OVER AND OVER again. I kind of believe people never change.
In other words I’m kind of obsessed with the thought of asking yourself will this matter a year from now? So if I think about the worries and concerns I had a year ago, I have to say most of them don’t matter anymore. I mean some still do and I guess they were the important ones, but so many things don’t matter anymore. Only worry about things that are going to matter in a year. Just stop and ponder, will this really matter tomorrow, next week, next month, next year, 5 years from now?
Anyways today sucked. Happy Monday
