We often learn about our limits the hard way. Were there any limits you realized this past year? Alternately, what self-imposed limits were you able to move beyond this year?
Life won’t always pander to my desires and expectations. I can’t make other people feel the same way I do if they’re simply not interested. It’s practically impossible for them to carve time out from their “busy” schedules if they couldn’t be arsed. After all, it’s not about what we say but what we do. Fact.
“Words are mere bubbles of water, but deeds are drops of gold.” – Chinese proverb
That said, it’s getting easier to look past all that and live without clinging to anyone. Why force it if it ain’t true, right? Just doesn’t make any sense to put oneself out there without being met halfway. Less grief and whatnot. The greatest freedom is to shrug off manipulation: make your own decisions, live your own life, and defend your right to do so with everything you have.
