Remember that it's okay to take a break, especially if you're feeling burnt out or worn down. You don't always have to be creating, working, doing, or generally being productive. It's perfectly alright and understandable to take a break from your more productive activities and take time to rest/relax instead.
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.
Please remember to always be kind, tolerant, and accepting of other people. We are all human, so let’s treat each other as we would want to be treated. Even if you don’t approve of another person’s lifestyle or beliefs, you don’t have to treat them poorly because of that. If you want to be accepted for who you are, then also accept others for who they are and try to be understanding of their perspective. As long as it’s safe, legal, and consensual, we all deserve to love who we love without facing judgement, intolerance, or hate. So once again, let’s keep in mind that we’re all human and deserve respect.
Today is Memorial Day, a somewhat somber occasion. It's a time to honor and mourn those who have died while serving in the military and protecting us citizens. These brave, courageous people sacrificed themselves in order to protect others. They fought for a cause they believed in. They're amazing and truly deserve to be honored for all they have done.
Don't rely on other people to determine your own self worth. It's fine to want to feel needed by family, friends, and other loved ones. It's alright to devote much of our time and effort to them, too. However, other people don't reflect your worth as a person. Your worth is so much greater than what those around you think of you. Always remember you're a king/queen all on your own. You don't need other people to validate or reinforce that.
