Monday Motivation: February #3

Hey guys! I hope you all had a great Valentine's weekend, no matter how you chose to spend it! My brother's birthday also happens to fall on Valentine's day so we had a nice little family brunch. The only thing I hate about Valentine's day is how love is only glorified during this time when it should really be all the time, yeah? ♡

Anyway! I'm not the best at putting words together but I came across something online that just placed everything I wish I could tell someone (myself included) into words and of course, I wanted to share it with you guys!

  • I’ve learned that you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is be someone who can be loved. The rest is up to them;
  • I’ve learned that no matter how much I care, some people just don’t care back;
  • I’ve learned that it takes years to build up trust, and only seconds to destroy it.
  • I’ve learned that you can get by on charm, for about fifteen minutes. After that, you’d better know something;
  • I’ve learned that either you control your attitude or it controls you.
  • I’ve learned that no matter how hot and steamy a relationship is at first, the passion fades and there had better be something else to take it’s place.
  • I’ve learned that sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you’re downhill are the ones to help you get back up.
  • I’ve learned that sometimes when I’m angry I have the right to be angry.
  • I’ve learned that true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance. Same goes for true love.
  • I’ve learned that just because someone doesn’t love you the way you want them to doesn’t mean that they don’t love you with all they have.
  • I’ve learned that maturity had more to do with what types of experiences you’ve had and what you’ve learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you’ve celebrated.
  • I’ve learned that your family won’t always be there for you.
  • I’ve learned that no matter how good a friend is, they’re going to hurt you every once in a while.
  • I’ve learned that it isn’t always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you have to forgive yourself.
  • I’ve learned that no matter how bad your heart is broken, the world doesn’t stop for your grief.
  • I’ve learned that our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.
  • I’ve learned that just because two people argue, it doesn’t mean they don’t love each other. And just because they don’t argue, it doesn’t mean they do.
  • I’ve learned that we don’t have to change friends if we understand that friends change.
  • I’ve learned that two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.
  • I’ve learned that no matter how you try to protect your children, they will eventually get hurt and you will get hurt in the process.
  • I’ve learned that your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don’t even know you.
  • I’ve learned that it’s hard to determine where to draw the line between being nice and not hurting people’s feelings and standing up for what you believe.

I wish I could frame this and hang it up somewhere in my room as a constant reminder! They're all excellent points and I hope they spoke to you somehow!

I want to know! What's one thing you learned this past week/month or just something you recently learned that you want to share? Please leave it in the comments below and I'd be more than happy to read it!

Hoping everyone has a great week ahead!

  1. I've learned that sometimes you just have to forget something that has bothered you and, in contrast, I've learned that sometimes you have to speak up when something has bothered you!
