I don’t care about popularity, I live in reality based on originality. Forget looks, I respect personality.

People who don’t deserve you will always use your past to ruin your future, mind where they lead you. You see, the past is a place of reference, not a place of residence, the past is but a place of learning and not living. We often say that we don’t care about the outward appearance but what is in the heart. We are human and our eyes are not x-rays but from the behaviour we see amongst our day to day companies, then for sure we can see the heart.

You cannot change the past but you can make a difference now. What happened yesterday must stay that way or else you will forever live a life of regrets. Holding onto the past and onto past individuals is always a shame because they often bring unwanted memories, and add onto the regrets. Just be brave enough to live the life of your dreams according to your vision and purpose instead of the expectations and opinions of other because people will sometimes disappoint you.

I’ve learnt that we are all different, don’t judge but understand instead. Your past failures will define your future achievements if you allow them to. Stop trying to compare yourself with others, just choose to be happy and live your own life because we are all here with a different “yesterday”. As I said in my earlier statement, I don’t care about popularity, now I say, do what is right and not what is easy or what is popular, be unique.

There are two things that hold us from greater achievements: our past and the people we surround ourselves with. Surround yourself with positive people, their energy is contagious, and stop living in the past. Time machines are just movies and fantasies, live in the present moment. Don’t be a victim of previous circumstances, choose victory by gracious endurance.

Don’t forget the people that helped you along the way. The hardest times often lead to the most beautiful end, just believe in yourself. You are braver than you think, more talented than you know, and more capable than you can imagine. Don’t let these two be the reason for your loss of focus.
