I can’t afford to hate anyone, I don’t have that kind of time.
Akira Kurosawa

(via ibtasem)

You dont have to be liked by everyone
You just have to like yourself enough that you you dont care if people like you or not.

The problem with this generation is that they want to be ‘liked’ and ‘followed’
People like you for who you are, not what you pretend to be
Or want to be.
You dont need to change yourself for others,
You change because you want …to …grow out of your own insecurities. And were brave enough to accept your own weakness to overcome it.

Most people get dissappointed when people they met do not appear to be who they thought they were or expect to be.
Thats where you always get dissappointed…

Because we ‘expect’ people to be who we want them to be without realizing that these people are born in their own way, go through different experience than us, exposed to different environment and one thing for sure…are not …like ..you,

If only people would accept the simple fact that, human beings,even animals are never the same.
Even if they share the same parents, grow in the same house, studied at the same school…but never share the same body and mind
(even siamese twins have different personality than the other)

So why bother complaining about how these people arent behaving the way you expect them to be, whenyou can never expect them to behave the way we want them to be.
Stop trying to control how people should behave in this world, stop criticizing everything that irritates you, stop pointing out other peoples flaw just because you dont like them.

One year or less than now, they might have change to a better person in the future and you are still stuck with who they were in the past.

If you have time to focus on other peoples lackness….probably..you are the one whos lack of focus in your life. Because people who have time to find faults in others, surely havent been spending enough time reflecting intontheir own fault.

I read somewhere that, people who are too busy about other peoples life, do not have any golas in their life accept talking about other peoples life. People who have goals in life, are too busy trying to achieve their own goal than talking about useless talk.

So spend your time wisely, choose your words carefully and stop wasting your time on things that dont matter to you or benefit you.

Resisting yourself from talking about peoples life and actually putting your life together….are much harder than you think.
Try that sometime, and see how your life will actually change.

In any case you mustn’t confuse a single failure with a final defeat.
Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is to not stop questioning.
Albert Einstein 
Don’t walk behind me; I may not lead. Don’t walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.
Albert Camus
Silence is a source of great strength.
Lao Tzu 
The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it.
Eckhart Tolle 
Solitude matters, and for some people, it’s the air they breathe.
Susan Cain 
If you don’t like something change it; if you can’t change it, change the way you think about it.
Mary Engelbreit 
My heart is so small, it’s almost invisible. How can you place such big sorrows in it?
‘Look,’ he answered,
‘Your eyes are even smaller, yet they behold the world.’
Rumi 
Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards.
Søren Kierkegaard 
People empty me. I have to get away to refill.
Charles Bukowski 
Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.
Lao Tzu 

A few times in my life I’ve had moments of absolute clarity. When for a few brief seconds the silence drowns out the noise and I can feel rather than think, and things seem so sharp and the world seems so fresh. It’s as though it had all just come into existence.

I can never make these moments last. I cling to them, but like everything, they fade. I have lived my life on these moments. They pull me back to the present, and I realize that everything is exactly the way it was meant to be.
