“My approach to applying faith in action in times of crises and extreme challenges has three prongs. First, you need to make internal adjustments to manage your emotions so they don’t manage you. This will allow you to take control of your life and respond thoughtfully one step at a time. Second, remind yourself of how you have persevered through adversity in the past and emerged stronger and wiser for the experience. Third, put your faith in action externally by reaching out, not only to seek help and encouragement from others, but to give help and encouragement too. There is healing power in both receiving and in giving.”—Nick Vujicic (via idontthinkyoureawasteofspace)
“Be kind to yourself. Stop telling yourself that whatever you are struggling with “should” be easy. If something is hard for you, it is hard for you. There are probably reasons, though those may just be how you are wired. Acknowledge these things. When you finish something hard, be proud! Celebrate a little.
And really, just stop saying “should” to yourself about your thoughts and feelings in any context. You feel how you feel. The things in your head are the things in your head. You can’t change either directly through sheer force of will. You can only change what you do. Stop beating yourself up for who and what you are right now–it isn’t productive. Focus on moving forward.
Truly an amazing site. If you’re ever feeling sad/depressed or lonely, this website will make you feel better.
You can choose either The Quiet Place, 90 seconds relaxation exercise, The Thoughts Room or the Comfort Spot, which also has a link to The Dreams Room. I’m not going to say anymore about it, because you just have to experience it for yourself.
You are not a pear, you are not an hourglass, you are not an apple; you are a human being, with bumps and crevices and scars. You are a million shapes rolled into one. You are a universe within yourself. You are a human being, and you are magnificent.
