Intentions

Self loathe. Self pity. Is it worth it? I ask.
"I didn't mean it" "Those weren't my intentions" I cried as every noun, verb, pronoun and adjective astray into a whirlpool of darkness and distress.

Anger. Hatred. Resentment. Is it worth it? I ask for the second time.
"It won't happen" "Forgive me" I pleaded as I vowed to never say a word of goodwill to anyone again.

Frustrating, it truly is, when one's acts of compassion come across to many as provocative acts of narcissism. Detestation, even, when to all intents and purposes, one meant quite the opposite. One meant all but harm. Benevolence, even.

10 things to remember in life.

These are a few things that I like to remember in life so I thought sharing them would be a great idea so that not only others can benefit, but I can look back and give myself a little reminder too.


1) Don't be a people pleaser.
Seriously. Don't. You were not born to please people. Don't change yourself to fit in, because there'll always be opinionated people out there. So, just be yourself and be too glam to give a damn. You'll stand out as an individual.

2) It's okay to say no, set your boundaries.
It's fine. Say no. Never let anybody push you around. If you do not want to do something, then say so. Speak up and don't ever be scared because nothing matters more than what you personally want. Set your boundaries and show people what isn't acceptable for you.

3) Do what you want to do. 
Now, this doesn't mean go all #YOLO and do things against your morals, of course not. What this means is that if you have something to say, say it. If you have something to do, do it. Pursue your dreams. Show the world what you're made of. Let your personality manifest positivity.

4) Life's too short.
Don't hold grudges against people, life's too short for that. Forgive people but don't forget what they did. Talk to people, but keep them in their limits and don't allow them to make the same mistake again. There's much more joy in doing that rather than completely ignoring someone and having to remember that you're ignoring them too. Remember that resentment is unhealthy.

5) Positive Vibes Only.
Stay away from negativity and ensure that all negativity is cut out of your life. If the negativity happens to be within your family, try talking it out nicely. If it's outside your home, cut it out. Seriously, life is already complicated as it is, don't stress. Chill.

6) Composure.
"Breath slow, count from one to ten with your eyes closed." - Alesha Dixon.
This quote literally gets me through all angry moments. Remember, composure is key. Anger never gets you anywhere because 9 out of 10 times, you'll regret half the things you said and because words can never be brought back, you'll be spending a hell of a lot of time trying to get things back to normal. So remember this quote. If you're ever angry, walk away. Even if you're right because you know you're right so that's all that should matter. What's the point in proving things to others? You can always go and sort matters out once the situation has settled.

7) Don't expect things.
Keeping your expectations high will only lead to disappointment.

8) Dream big.
No dream is ever too big. Always aim for the highest and the best. Prove people wrong, show them what you are capable of doing.

9) Be nice.

It's not hard. Be nice to others, compliment them and make them feel good about themselves. Trust me when I tell you that your words CAN make someone's day. Be compassionate towards others and they'll be the same towards you. You never know what's going on in other people's lives, so be nice. Your words could really brighten someone's mood.

10) Be confident.
Be confident with who you are and what you are capable of. Never degrade or underestimate yourself. Now, that doesn't mean you cross the line and fall into the depths of narcissism and arrogance and put others down, no. By confident, I am talking about being comfortable with yourself and being accepting of your flaws. Everyone has flaws, not having a flaw would be a flaw within itself. So, be happy with who you are.
