God doesn't heal us completely and he does that by purpose, he leaves a part of us broken to keep us in need of him, if everything was OK the world wouldn't need him or even talk to him but by him leaving a wound in us that we can’t solve by ourselves. We go to him for the healing only he can give us and it’s normally through, people that we receive relief, there's not a suffering that is unknown to mankind and by sharing it with others we help those who go through the same thing be able to come out of it safely, for if we are able to relate to each other, we are able to understand each other. #thoughts#like#realshit#writing#life#doubletap#followme#follow
I will not cry in front of you.
I have grown up knowing that tears are powerful things.
I have seen them used against those who are weak to them.
To create guilt, to get the user's way, and to threaten.
So I will not cry in front of you.
I have also grown up with the fear of being a burden and unwanted.
To be left behind and to become fully alone....
But I dont want to be one that is only kept around because of this manipulation.
I dont want this manipulation to affect your choices.
So I will not cry in front of you.
I want you to choose me.
I want you to choose me because you want to.
I want you to choose me because the thought of being without me is unbearable.
I want you to choose me because you want 'us'.
So, I will not cry in front of you.
Please understand that I will not cry in front of you, not because I want to be strong but because I am weak.. for you.
Sitting on a panel in a few weeks and I'm preparing to answer this question. Tell me your #thoughts ?
Side note... It's cool to work for a company that sees diversity as a competetive advantage ... #lovebnme
"Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you."
A simple sentence, and yet so few people live by this rule. If you want to be treated fairly - then treat everyone around you with that same fairness. Show respect and it will be reciprocated. Be generous with you time, your love, and your honesty - and you will see it reflected back tenfold in your own life. Such a basic concept, that can enrich our relationships - professional, platonic, familial, and romantic. It all comes down to this: do you want to be self-serving? Or do you want to be someone that values others?
Do you value yourself enough to demand this in your own life? Because only when you do that, will you truly be able to embody my philosophy of the warrior.
Don't buy into the mind games. The tit-for-tat mentality. When you embody all of the qualities above, you are able to command them in your own life - be honest with people, show them respect, value their time and give of yours. When you understand the importance of all these things - you will learn to accept nothing less from the people in your life. Don't settle for less. You deserve better.
"its completely acceptable to stay alive for tiny reasons. becuz you want to hear your favourite song one more time, becuz your dog will miss you when you leave, becuz the moon is jus too pretty to never see again. becuz you havent seen the next season of a really good tv show, becuz you wanna see the christmas lights this year. if you're alive, you're doing enough. if you're surviving, im proud of you". #thoughts
“This hope [this confident assurance] we have as an anchor of the soul [it cannot slip and it cannot break down under whatever pressure bears upon it]--a safe and steadfast hope that enters within the veil [of the heavenly temple, that most Holy Place in which the very presence of God dwells],”
HEBREWS 6:19 AMP
What and who anchors you when the seas of life get rough? While family, friends, money or your own abilities can help, they have limitations. Your soul needs more than they can offer. Your souls needs a safe and steady anchor. 💓
WHAT IS THE MEASURE OF LIFE?
Today I ask a really important question. One that has been left unanswered for decades. One that has seen wealthy men unsatisfied and the poor lacking nothing. One that has brought anarchy to learned minds and illumination to the simplest of fellows.
Today I ask "What is the measure of life? "
On what scale is life measured, calculated and approved? What is the "thing" that makes people accept a life as one well-spent? What is the measure of life?
Mankind exists in a world in which everything done is placed under scrutiny. Every act, every deed, every seed down and harvested by every individual is placed on the scale and weighed by members of his society. His every move calculated to see if he will ever measure up to the wants of life. So therefore, what is the measure of life?
Is life measured by those we choose to love, or is life simply measured by our accomplishments? The goals and heights we attain? The cars, houses, extravagant fashion senses and the trips overseas?
What if we fail? Or we are never truly loved?
What then is the measure of life?
Perhaps I'm sentimental because I was very ill on Sunday and had to give my concert ticket for @teddysphotos away or whatever. For the very first time I mixed all those three and shuffled them. And to be honest I almost cried the whole time as I sang all lyrics along even I hadn't heared some of them for years.
+ came out as I was alone at home with my first child. Things doens't went as well as I thought. Becoming a mother and fit in this new role was freaking me out. This whole album was calming me down whenever I needed it the most.
X came out as we welcomed our little girl in our family. It was much more fun as the first child. I was more confident with myself, with my role as a mother, with my life between work, friends and family but still feeling empty sometimes. So X made a lot of fun.
"Divide" now is.....breathtaking. It hit me as I am now fully there where I should be. Doing what makes me happy, living a live full of laughter, fun and love with my family. Not constantly complaining to others, their shapes, their lives, their travels, their nice houses and well behaving children. So songs like "Castle on the Hill" get straight in my heart, because this is what happened between + and "Devide", I opened my heart. It was my way to happiness 💫
Thank you @teddysphotos for always beeing by my side. And I know I will attend one of your concerts one day and sing my ass of 😊
I'm a nightthinker and that means: lying awake at least 30 minutes before falling asleep. Sometimes I hate it but this is the time when I'm thinking about everything all at once and there's something I can tell you: Let someone love you just the way you are - as flawed as you might be, as unattractive as you sometimes feel, and as unaccomplished as you think you are. To believe that you must hide all the parts of you that are broken, out of fear that someone else is incapable of loving what is less than perfect, is to believe that sunlight is incapable of entering a broken window and illuminating a dark room. ✨🌺💭 #yesterdaysthoughts#thoughts#inspiration#austrianblogger#bedtime#innsbruck#mutausbrueche#potd#love#yourself#happy#goodvibes#positive#throwback#thinking
