Straight from …MyThoughtBubble…
There is such a thing as being alone, even when their are plenty of people around you. Being alone is not defined by the absence or presence of people, but by your acceptance of the things which surround you.
Let me explain; Sometimes, the friends that you have chosen are not truly your friends at all. Sometimes, those you believe are the closest to you, or at least the ones you hold in your heart are not really meant to be held that close to you for always, or even in the first place.
From experience, I have learned that sometimes, it is better to go without friends or people in your life then to immerse yourself into any group that accepts you (or that you just want to be a part of so that you won’t ever feel the loneliness).
Here is why its important: If the person(s) are not like minded as you, you will go through many sorrows and tribulations. Not to say you don’t learn from them, but to remind you that “you are what you eat…” and “birds of a feather, flock together.” In other words, you already know that people change with time. But did you realize that people themselves can change you too?
Perhaps it is true that everyone that has walked in your life had their purpose at one time, or even another. But did you ever wonder if the reason that they didn’t make it to your present is because they weren’t suppose to? I can’t decide. However, I have decided that deep down in our minds, and especially in our hearts we really DO know what is good for us. What we choose, is another story.
I suppose what I am trying to say is that you have to learn to separate the logic, and the emotions of your heart. However, just because you separate the two does not mean that your heart does not have logic of its own, or that you logic has no emotions. This is why it is so difficult to separate the two, which are closely intermingled. But, when you have learned to separate the two, I believe you have found a small piece of the puzzle that can help you understand and see the larger picture.
Thus, Learn from your mistakes, because if you don’t you’ll be less likely to survive… and if you do survive, it could be a life of heartache, rather than peace, or wisdom gained through experience… once again depending on the origins of the kind of person that you were. Not everyone is strong enough even when they think they are. Thats why I urge you to avoid the things you know are bad for you. It doesn’t matter if its candy, an allergy, under/over eating, a person, a group, a habit, or a sweetheart. Make sure that the people you hang out with are the kind of people that you want to be. If you don’t, you are more than likely to lose yourself… and not everyone can find their way back. In fact, most don’t.
If you can’t escape the people that you have already deemed to be important in your life, placing the value of their friendship over the value of your own life, then the least you can do for yourself is make a conscience effort to make your life pleasant, worthwhile, and most importantly to meet the ethics and morals that you know to be “the right thing.” Make an effort to smile over something small every day because sometimes its the little things that go a long way. Look to a higher power for guidance, and trust that It can help you succeed. Do the things which are really important to you. It is never too late to do what you feel is right –for you!
Remember that everyone is different, and we each need specific things to help us continue life as we know it. Follow your heart for once, I mean, truly follow it. Don’t follow your emotions.
These days people mix up the two (love & emotion) waaaay to often! Be careful when you decide which one you are following. Believe it or not, your heart IS really intelligent, it’s the emotions that get in the way. Serendipity… this message is an eye opener. I just hope it can reach someone whose been lost in their own thoughts, emotions, delusions, whatever.
Best wishes, from the bottom of my heart.
