Unknown

Unknown fears I hold inside;
behind my eyes the truth lies.
In a high I shed tears in silence,
waiting for a ray of hope
to awaken me from this reverie.
Deaf ears hear my woeful cries
and console with caresses of kindness,
as those who walk the Earth continue
to forsake my very existence.
Fear, I fear, this solitude I fear;
for misery is my only companion . . .

Me Vs. Us

MulanReflection1

Often times we find ourselves in situations of self doubt, questioning our potential and lowering our self worth as each insecurity resurrects into our conscious thoughts. MY expectations, MY feelings,  MY fears, MY needs, MY life, and “ME” often make a minor pebble into a larger than life mountain that is perceived as beyond ones capacity to climb. 

When in the “Me” mindset, negative emotions such as:  jealousy, anger, guilt, possessiveness, fear, and greed begin to isolate you from reality. This “Me” mindset is caused by insecurities that an individual has about his or her self and often prevents them from creating/maintaining healthy relationships with others. On the contrary, the “Us” mindset brings forth positive emotions such as: gratitude, love, happiness, patience, and humility which enhances self development. While the “Me” perspective of life keeps you isolated from others,  the “Us” mindset acts as a social magnet and helps us create a healthy self image of our persona.

Relationships are formed when two confident individuals share common interest in life and see a reflection of themselves in the other person. When these two individuals are in sync with each other they are in the “Us” mindset and positive emotions are further enhanced by the experience of sharing joy with one another. However, the minute one partner allows negative emotions to take over their relationship they regress back into the “Me” mindset.

The “Me” mindset is a destructive state of being that creates problems for singles as well as couples.  At various instances in life the “Me” mindset may want to creep up into your life but, always remember that negative emotions only cause isolation.

Our greatest enemy in life is “Me”, learn to understand “Me” and make it an ally. Life gets pretty dull with just “Me”. Learn to step out of “Me” and enjoy the company of “Us”, only then will you realize how it feels to be truly alive…

Who Am I?

Describe your personality in three words:  Dedicated, hopeful, and strong-willed.

Describe your rules for life:

  • Never become an obstacle between two people who love each other, but above that never become a barrier between someone you love and their self. Not letting a person grow and be the best version of his/her self would be an injustice to them and you.
  • Never try to keep someone in your life that  does not want to keep you.
  • Never make the same mistake twice. Fall, get up, learn from the mistake and never trip over the same object again.
  • Never hold on to the past, always try to move on. There is no point in hitting repeat and watching the same thing on replay again and again, that would mean I’m stuck and can’t move on.
  • Strength is skin deep; courage comes from the heart. It takes more strength to open up and show healing wounds then it does to build a wall around them.
  • Never settle for anything less than what you deserve and want in life. You just need to figure out what it is first . . .
  • I already know what I want to do; just a matter of the right timing and making thoughts into actions.

Describe a lesson you learned the hard way:

  • You are your own worst enemy. If you befriend this enemy, nothing and no one can bring you down. Harness your inner strength and use it to your advantage.

Describe something you’re afraid of: Not being afraid. With out fear there is no courage. With out courage there is no strength; therefore DelicateStrength would seize to exist.

Describe something you dream of achieving one day: To be known for who I am and not what I am, hopefully a good person.

Describe something people do that really annoys you: Superficiality- Saying and doing things with out sincerity. Superficial conversations and webs of emotionless words spun out of boredom, leaving you stuck with no way to get out . . . hate when that happens!

Describe a quality – a personality trait – that you wish you had: What’s the point in wishing? It takes forever, someone has to grant the wish, and you might not even get what you wished for . . . might as well make the wish into a goal and make it happen yourself. A vigorously earned victory is much more fulfilling and memorable then one that is merely handed to you. I’m satisfied with the qualities I have. I don’t wish for things, I make them reality 😉

Describe a quality you already have that you are proud of: Hmm, first thought: being modest . . . well that wasn’t very modest haha (lol, I may subconsciously think it’s humor). Second thought: I am proud of every quality I posses. Some qualities are not as profound as others, but I have a life time to polish them and one day they will shine brighter than the rays of the sun :).

A Dark Path

Inspiration: Sometimes we have to take steps towards our goals and dreams on our own.  The realization that we walked a dark path alone will make an experience even more rewarding in the end.

“You might fear walking on a dark path by yourself, but without fear there is no courage. Without courage there is no strength and without strength there is no will power. Without will power there is no determination and without determination there is no plan. Without a plan there is no SUCCESS… ”                 –   DelicateStrength
