Old and wise

To be old and wise,
you must first be
young and stupid.

      Insulting is a reflection of your empty mind. The mind that are not able to explain any sort of points. So it goes to the easiest way which is insulting.

      Alonso, the truth is that when we’re young, we may be smart, but there isn’t any wisdom. Wisdom comes from living and experience, so I know that there are very, very few young people who are wise. In fact, most of them are stupid, because they don’t know as much as they think they do, are naive and idealistic, and have all the answers. I was this way, and so are you! And I promise you, the older you get, the more you understand that no one can be young and wise. It’s an oxymoron!

      Diana. Exactly. But what I want to say, being young doesn’t mean he has no experience. Some old people can be so dumb as well as some young people. That’s I wanna say

      I agree with you! I’m 69 years old, and I know a few people in my age group who don’t seem to have learned much from their life experiences. So there’s no fool like an old fool, especially one who fools himself!

Men Who Will Sit And Listen To You

Men Who Will Sit And Listen To You

For any woman that needs to hear this.

There are still men who will sit and listen to you while you talk about something that bothered you. There are still men out there who will take accountability and apologize, men who can be aware of their behavior and how it affected you.

Men that you can grow with. Men that will make you feel appreciated. You don’t have to go through years with somebody who doesn’t know how to communicate and has no emotional intelligence.

You are worthy of healthy love.

Get up.

You’ve got people to prove wrong, people to piss off, and most importantly, a promise to uphold to yourself that this is not the end.

We Need To Step Out Of Our Comfort Zone

We Need To Step Out Of Our Comfort Zone

We need to step out of our comfort zone to grow and learn.

Aaaaaand we need to step back into our comfort zone to rest, recover, and integrate how we’ve grown and what we’ve learned.

Don’t diss the comfort zone. It serves a purpose. Use it as a tool.

Time Is Simply Space

Time Is Simply Space

If time actually healed people, no one in the world would be hurting.

Time is simply space; what matters is how you use it. If you fill your time intentionally with self-love, letting go, and building the new habits you need, that would make a real difference.
