The longer your exposed to radiation the more likely its going to effect you.
The longer your exposed to the media the more likely your going to believe their views.
The longer your exposed to negative draining people the more likely they are going to effect you.
The same is true in reverse
The longer your exposed to healthy environments, positive people the better the effects on you
And equally true for the people who are exposed to you.
Be careful of what you are exposed to.
Those who are hardest to love, need it the most
This is true, Those who are socially awkward and struggle with human connections also need connection the most.
Absence of these things trigger responses in our brains that heighten our sensitivity to human signals, but this could lead us to overlook or overthink the signals that other people don’t see.
It may lead us to think that someone is a threat, or that we will be judged so we retreat inwards or become a bit awkward.
Leaving us the thing that we crave the most to repel it.
When you see someone and you think my god they are awkward or hard work, Take the time to wonder why is it because they are weird or don’t want your company…
Or is it most likely that they want it badly but where they are right now in their heads is kind of awkward?
Take the time when you speak to people, let them come out of their shells slowly once their brain chemistry has perceived you as not a threat.
And you might realise that these weirdos or hard to love people are the most loveable and awesome.
You can’t have nice things, can you…
Is what many people say when something gets damaged, It was also what my Uncle said to me yesterday when he noticed a mark on my car…
It reminded me of a quote from Seneca
“Remember that all we have is “on loan” from Fortune, which can reclaim it without our permission—indeed, without even advance notice. Thus, we should love all our dear ones, but always with the thought that we have no promise that we may keep them forever—nay, no promise even that we may keep them for long.”
It’s not that we can’t have nice things,
But they aren’t ours, and they aren’t guaranteed to stay nice forever either.
Many things happen in life, Nice things can get stolen, broken, lost, die…
One day we will have to return them or we will have to be returned.
Enjoy the things whilst you have them but expect them to return, damaged etc.
Then if and when it happens you will be ready and the pain will be less.
Like for Likes
I get the idea of like for likes,
You like someone’s post and they like yours so you both support each other the same with follow for follow and other stuff like that…
But the issue for me is how do you know someones actually liking your content for the content and just for something in return?
I would rather like someone’s content because I actually liked their stuff and expect nothing in return
and I would prefer someone to do that with my content too.
That way I know I’m actually reaching people and that there work is generally good too.
Take The Risk, Or Lose The Chance
Is a quote I see in the entrepreneur world, All over Instagram and the likes…
It implies that you need to make quick decisions and snap up whatever is in front of you right away. It makes you think that if I wait then I’m going to lose this opportunity and there will be no more.
It also rushes you into making the decision and not truly thinking through whether it is actually an opportunity or not.
Sometimes the risk you need to take is to wait.
That’s right wait, instead of snapping up the first thing that comes along.
Wait and the opportunity will arise.
Rush and what you thought was an opportunity was actually disaster in disguise.
