One of the things our society is suffering with today, is lack of time.
As a kid, one of my dreams was to tell my father: Please deduct my pocket money for several months, whatever amounts to a day of your time, and spend some time with us today.
Fast forward to today: We are still trying to get along. We love each other, are there for each other during good and not-so-good times, however, I do wish I wasn’t appreciated for my ranks in class and rather appreciated for failing.
It is a constant battle of self-blame.
Also, he did and still does his best. And we do spend good time together.
However, if anyone of you reading here is a parent or intend to be so in the future, a small request: Don’t tell your kids: “I am doing it for you only!”
Kids need you, they will anyway learn to make money online. Online parents and understanding is not possible.
Do you sometimes feel people are taking too much advantage of you?
You are good, however, instead of appreciating you they walk over you?
I understand a lot of genuine, hardworking and transparent people go through this. Especially the ones who live by their values no matter what happens.
Here’s a question that would be of help:
“Have you ever stopped to be good to your own goodness, and not offer it to someone who won’t recognize it?”
The truth is, in the desire to be good and do more good, we don’t remember to create a boundary.
A boundary, where we stop offering others because we know we deserve ourselves before them. A boundary, where we listen to our intuition and see that the best goodness is goodness to thine own self. A boundary, where you can fill your cup so it could be good again, not that you get empty forever.
There is nothing wrong with being good. However, it’s worth thinking if you are good to others before yourself.
We all know the answers to these questions. Why don’t we execute them still?
Because deep down we still believe we don’t deserve the goodness that will follow. Our current state of mind has made us believe we are doomed for this little life. So, we make efforts and those efforts are never followed by self belief and trust in our own selves.
You have it all within you. The question is: What are you doing in order to remove the extra stone from the beautiful sculpture of your life?
