I feel like being angry is something that we choose to be. We’re in control of our emotions so when someone says something that we don’t like or does something that we feel is targeted towards us, we get mad and want to do something that we may or may not regret. I can’t say that I haven’t done this because I have, many times. I’ve allowed people to get to me and ruin my whole mood just by the things they would say, which then led me to doing something careless in the moment. This is something that can’t be continued because it might seem like you’re not tolerating any disrespect, but it’s also showing people that they can ruin your whole day just by saying something to you. I talked about this before and it’s called people having control over you. You see, once people have control over you they have control over your mind and having control over the mind is a dangerous thing. Now, I can’t teach you how to control your emotions because honestly that’s something that everyone has to figure out on their own. But, what I can say is that we have to be aware of what triggers our emotions so we can learn to control them and not lose control over them.
Change is something that must come to everyone, even if you don’t want to, it’s bound to happen. Now I used to be afraid of change because I personally wanted things to stay the same but also I didn’t want to grow up. I was afraid that growing up would cause me to be on my own and handling things by myself. Think about that alone, just the thought of being alone sounds depressing already and that’s just something I didn’t wanna experience. But like I said everyone must change because it’s bound to happen so I knew one day that I would have to handle stuff on my own and I would feel like I’m alone even if I’m not. I say growing up has shown me the beauty in actually being on my own at times and the peace that comes with it. Now yes there are some struggles involved with it as well that I’ll have to take on my own but that doesn’t mean I can’t ask for help. It just means that right now I have a situation and it’s up to me on how I deal with it. I say for the most part I have done a good job even if I have cried just a little at times, but I still manage to wipe the tears away and get up and keep moving. And that’s the thing we just gotta keep going. Because life throws curve balls at us all the time and sometimes we don’t even have time to prepare for them but once the ball is thrown it’s up to us whether we settle for the strike out or we swing at it and hope for the best.
I saw you rise above the doubts you tried to disguise. I saw the tears that you kept hidden within your eyes. I saw the potential that you thought you never had. I saw your love fade away after everything went bad. I saw your strength when weakness tried to cover you like rust. I saw you over work from dawn until dusk. But I must say after everything I have seen, that you must continue to press on until you reach your dreams.
