Just know that you don't have to put up with others treating you poorly or taking advantage of your kindness. It may not seem like it right now, but with both platonic and romantic relationships, there are people out there who will treat you right. There's never just one option for a friend, partner, or acquaintance. So, if there are people in your life consistently making you experience negative emotions/thoughts, distance yourself from them and move on to better things.
Always try to empathize with others and make a genuine effort to understand their situation. You never know what another person may have going on in their life, what they might be dealing with. And you may not truly be able to understand until you get to know them better or experience their situation yourself. But, that's why rather than pass judgement on others, we should treat them with kindness and understanding instead. Show them tolerance and acceptance.
Being flawed and human, we all make mistakes from time to time. Part of being human is making mistakes, learning from them, and growing as a person. It's perfectly okay to make mistakes or to stumble and fall. The important takeaway from mistakes is that we acknowledge them, learn from them, and use that gained knowledge to better ourselves. Remember, there's nothing wrong with making a mistake sometimes; but, we should do our best to improve ourselves through them.
We’re finally in the spring season now, which means warmer weather will hopefully be on the way. I can say for sure that it’s already brought plenty of rain, though, at least where I live! In fact, it rained so much earlier this week that the basement drain couldn’t keep up with the continuous influx of water, and unfortunately, this led to the basement flooding. The kitties were really alarmed by everything going on, and being the curious cats they are, had to come investigate. They kept going in and out of the basement, trying to figure out what was happening and what the heck we were doing.
To me, there are few things in this world that are better and more relaxing than cuddling with kitties. Even if I've been having a terrible day, spending time with my cats and snuggling with them immediately makes me feel more like myself again.
