Be assertive enough so that when someone enters your life that treats you negatively, you can stand up for yourself and have the strength to let them go. You can learn that it is okay to say no to anyone who is not willing to treat you with the love and respect you not only want, but also deserve. Have the courage to walk away from anything that does not serve you well. Search for your highest good.
There are some people out there who may not express happiness for your successes. They may not say how proud they are of you or won't bring themselves to show joy for your accomplishments. Don't seek their approval or validation if they are not willing to give to you freely. Search for blessings inside yourself and be confident that you have done greatness.

Never force someone to stay in a spot that they no longer desire to be in.
Even in a world full of billions of people finding the person who loves you for who you are at heart, and someone who is willing to accept all of your flaws, past mistakes, and other things that you may not be inclined to tell others, is a difficult person to find in the world today. So much of us are caught up in the superficial, that we decline to see true beauty, or get to know it unless it has a pretty face or big enough pockets. Finding true love is finding someone that will love you at your... Read more »
To the people who love you, you are beautiful already. This is not because they’re blind to your shortcomings but because they so clearly see your soul. Your shortcomings then dim by comparison. The people who care about you are willing to let you be imperfect and beautiful, too.
One stormy night many years ago, an elderly man and his wife entered the lobby of a small hotel in Philadelphia, USA. Trying to get out of the rain, the couple approached the front desk hoping to get some shelter for the night. “Could you possibly give us a room here?” – the husband asked. The clerk, a friendly man with a winning smile, looked at the couple and explained that there were three conventions in town. “All of our rooms are taken,” the clerk said. “But I can’t send a nice couple like you out into the rain at...

We're not meant to do it on our own. We're meant to do life with God and with each other. I've been fortunate to have friends that are willing to invest in me even on the days when I'm not able to invest back into them.
