This week, remember that uncertainty isn’t necessarily a negative. You don’t have to have your entire life figured out right now. You’re allowed to not know. You’re allowed to work it out over time. Accepting that you’re unsure is better than pretending you have it all figured out.
This week, remember bad experiences in the short-run might be good for you in the long-run. You might realize that this heartbreak or loss you’re going through today is going to lead you in a better direction in the future. You could end up happier than you’ve ever been.
This week, remember most choices are reversible. Even if you make a decision today that you end up regretting tomorrow, you can still pivot. You can change directions. There’s nothing wrong with deciding that your dreams look different at a different point in time.
This week, remember your inner peace is more valuable than your reputation. Instead of trying to please everyone around you, come up with ways to please yourself. You should be your own biggest supporter, so treat yourself. Appreciate yourself. Love yourself.
This week, remember no one else is as put together as they seem. You aren’t the only one struggling. Everyone is dealing with problems that they aren’t talking about, feelings that they hide behind closed doors. You’re doing better than you think, so stop comparing.
This week, remember your painful feelings deserve to be felt. Don’t push them away or pretend that they’re nonexistent. It’s important to process your pain so you can grow and move on from it. Ignoring the issue isn’t going to make it disappear. But it could make the issue snowball.
This week, don’t live someone else’s life. Don’t make decisions based off what will impress the most people. The only opinion that matters is your own. Do what makes you happiest without worrying about the way you’ll be perceived.
This week, try not to burn bridges. You can walk away from someone without having a screaming match first. You can leave with your head held high. You can stay polite and mature while still cutting them out of your world
This week, remember the value of silence. You don’t always have to jump into conversations with your opinion. Sometimes, it’s better to sit back and listen. Observe the people around you. Learn about them and learn from them.
This week, remember not to prioritize people who treat you like a backup plan. You shouldn’t waste time on them if they aren’t going to dedicate time to you. You are lovable and worthwhile, and you shouldn’t chase after people who are unable to see that.
This week, remember relationships are a choice. You have to choose to put in effort every single day. You have to choose to give this person your heart. You have to choose to treat them the way they deserve. You aren’t stuck with them. You’re choosing to be with them.
This week, treat your word as your bond. Don’t make promises you aren’t sure you can keep. Be intentional with your words. Only say what you mean and mean what you say. Don’t get yourself into sticky situations by biting off more than you can chew.
