The biggest problem with having a good heart is, you expect each person in your little world to have the same heart as you.
The biggest problem with expecting is, you come to meet with a lot of disappointment.
The biggest problem with disappointment is, your soul gets damaged because of it.
The solution to all three problems are – rely on yourself, alone.
We spend our lives trying to discover home in other people. What we fail to understand is our own skeleton is the structure we’ll ever really need. There is not another person in this universe who is able to hold you straight, like your spine does for you so securely.
Knowing this, I still found myself relying on others in times of aid, relying on others support during times of need, relying on others advice to get me through a hurdle. I only learnt my lesson when I figured out, not every ear cares for my dreams, my sorrows nor my troubles. While I unburden my weaknesses to the ears of people who don’t care, they’re just waiting for an opportunity to use them against me.
When you share your weaknesses with another, you run the risk of not knowing whether that person has your best interest at heart, or if that person smells blood. You’re giving another being the power to take you down whenever they want. – Oh no honey.
We live amongst people who’ll smile at your face, and then laugh at your tears. When you see a person for who they really are, don’t cower in a corner, shy away and pretend to be friends with them; get back on your horse and remind them of how fierce you really are.
If you’re thinking, how does one distinguish the difference between one who smells blood and one who does have your best interest at heart?
Well, you can only hide trash long enough before you smell the stench. True colours are always revealed, it’s just a matter of time.
THEY DONT WANT YOU TO WIN. THEY DONT CARE ABOUT YOUR DIFFICULTIES.

Sometimes, it okay not to know what to do. Its okay to be confused, and not know where life is taking you. It is okay to feel pain, and go through a whirlpool of suffering. It is okay for your heart to hurt. Most importantly, it is always okay to cry. I feel at ease knowing that whenever I do go through any of those things, I am responsible for myself. No matter how dark the hole I fall into is, no matter how big or how deep it goes. I know, I can climb out of the darkness.
Relying on others as a source for my happiness only bought further failures to my feet. I won’t ever let another person make a decision for me, tell me how I am supposed to feel, or what they think I should do with my problems. I can do that all by myself.
Nobody has to agree with me, you have to trust yourself, listen to YOU. MY decisions are reasoned and everything that I think is right.
