Quote:”Forgive others, not because they deserve forgiveness, but because you deserve peace.”
Lesson to learn:Being angry at someone hurts only you. Let go of your anger, not for the other person, but for yourself. Remember, forgiving doesn’t mean forgetting. Forgiving means accepting that it happened.
Quote:”Most people do not listen with the intent to understand. Most people listen with the intent to reply.”
Lesson to learn:Ask yourself if you’re truly listening to others or if you’re being distracted by your own chatter. Sometimes, listening means staying silent to give others a chance to talk, soaking it in, then perhaps responding if your response is needed.
Quote:”The reason why we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind the scenes with everyone else’s highlight reel.”
Lesson to learn:You may think everyone is better than you are, but you are only seeing the image they portray to others. Everyone has their own fears and weaknesses — after all, we’re all human. Stop comparing yourself to others, because you’ll always come up short.
Quote:”I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
Lesson to learn:We may not remember the details, but we’ll always remember the impact a person had on us.
