Not that it’s new, but it’s worth repeating.

Stop expecting YOU from others. It may seem like the “right” thing or a common courtesy, that doesn’t mean that it will done.

Sleep doesn’t help you when it’s your soul that requires the rest. Strong people grow weary. Everyone was not raised the same.

It’s ok to care, as long as you know everyone is not going to care like you, or about you.

Tears are cleansing, just don’t drown in them. It’s said treat people the way you want to be treated, it is not a guarantee that they will you treat you that way.

Life is full of ups and downs, like a rollercoaster. Just remember to hold on during the down times, and throw your hands up during the up times.

Extend the grace you wish to be extended. Apologize where necessary but, stop apologizing for your feelings.

Tell people how you feel while they can hear you. Say what you need to say, even if your voice quivers. Communication is key. Relationships have been broken over misunderstandings.

Love wholeheartedly. Apologize where necessary. Be happy for the love in your life and be happy for the love others have in theirs.

If your grown children call to talk, talk to them even if they have nothing really to say; its about sharing space.

Own your feelings, it’s ok to be sad, mad, disappointed, upset and annoyed. Just don’t be mean while in those states. Deal with the emotion, sit in it as long as you need to, make the necessary adjustments and move on.

Love the people that love you. God will need them back one day.
