I used to think our parents were sooo strict

I used to think our parents were sooo strict, but watching these kids today, I think our parents saved our lives.

“Love is a verb, not a noun. It is active. Love is not just feelings of passion and romance. It is behavior. If a man lies to you, he is behaving badly and unlovingly toward you. He is disrespecting you and your relationship. The words “I love you” are not enough to make up for that. Don’t kid yourself that they are.”― Susan Forward

“No matter how calmly you try to referee, parenting will eventually produce bizarre behavior, and I'm not talking about the kids. Their behavior is always normal.”― Bill Cosby

“Mom always said people worried too much about their children. Suffering when you're young is good for you, she said. It immunized your body and your soul, and that was why she ignored us kids when we cried. Fussing over children who cry only encouraged them, she told us. That's positive reinforcement for negative behavior.”― Jeannette Walls

"Manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others. If you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter what fork you use." ⁠—Emily Post

"Respect for ourselves guides our morals; respect for others guides our manners." ⁠—Laurence Sterne

"Honesty in social life is often used as a cover for rudeness. But there is quite a difference between being candid in what you're talking about and people voicing their insulting opinions under the name of honesty." ⁠—Judith Martin

"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." ⁠—Maya Angelou

"If you happen to displease any of them, be always ready to make a frank apology. But the best way is to act with so much politeness, good manners, and circumspection, as never to have occasion to make any apology." —Alexander Hamilton

"The line between the public life and the private life has been erased, due to the rapid decline of manners and courtesy. There is a certain crudeness and crassness that has suddenly become accepted behavior, even desirable." ―Fannie Flagg

It's dangerous to have jealous people around You

It's dangerous to have jealous people around You. They look at You as a competition while You look at them as family or friends.

“It's funny how the people who know the least about you, always have the most to say.”
― Oscar Auliq-Ice

“Some people will always try to put you down. Just keep going, soar high into the sky and keep shining like a star.”― Mouloud Benzadi

“If you're jealous of someone else it simply means you have not come to a true acceptance and appreciation of yourself.” ― Rasheed Ogunlaru

“I wanted all of his attention. I wished I could fill it into a bottle and carry it around with me. I wanted to bathe in it. I wanted his gaze to stay fixed on me, only me. I wanted to stare into those beautiful gray eyes for as long as I lived.” ― J.C. Böhme

“Jealousy. It’s an ugly word. It has a bad reputation. But in the end, it’s an instinctive feeling. It’s not something we choose to feel any more than anger or pain. It is how we react to it that is the key.”
― Linda Maria

“One minute I’m standing there behind everyone and the next thing I know, I’m between Matthew and Viola, I have my knife out pointing at him, my own Noise falling like an avalanche and my mouth saying, “You best take two steps away from her and you best be taking ’em right quick.”
― Patrick Ness

“Just like hunger, thirst and pain, jealousy feels “bad” in order to motivate you to take action to feel “good”. Turn jealousy into motivation right now by asking for what you need or enthusiastically taking the first step to achieve your goal.”
― Lauren Martin

“In the end, given the opportunity, every man will step upon every other man in a mad scramble to the top. Climb too high too quickly, and the same people who hoisted you up will tear you down. Jealousy, my dear, is the most wicked, and most certain, of human impulses.”
― Stephanie Dray

Never take anyone for granted, karma will surely come

The person you took for granted today, may turn out to be the person you need tomorrow. Be careful how you treat people.

“Karma comes after everyone eventually. You can’t get away with screwing people over your whole life, I don’t care who you are.” – Chelsea Handler

“Karma is like a rubber band. You can only stretch it so far before it comes back and smacks you in the face.” – Anurag Prakash Ray

“Karma comes after everyone eventually. You can’t get away with screwing people over your whole life, I don’t care who you are.” – Chelsea Handler

I wish more people, especially family members, would heed these words! That's right!! Don't burn a bridge , you may have to cross again.

Some people never learn too selfish karma will come for sure. Correct so stop treating me bad or else tomorrow 😁 another day..😁 I never take anyone for granted, I know the feeling it's not nice. Treat people the same way you want to be treated.

“Karma comes after everyone eventually. You can’t get away with screwing people over your whole life, I don’t care who you are. What goes around comes around. That’s how it works. Sooner or later the universe will serve you the revenge that you deserve.” – Jessica Brody

“Karma comes after everyone eventually. You can’t get away with screwing people over your whole life, I don’t care who you are. What goes around comes around. That’s how it works. Sooner or later the universe will serve you the revenge that you deserve.” – Jessica Brody

Do not share your secrets with anyone

Be careful who you share your secrets with because, Nowadays people buy friendships with other people's secrets.

Secrets have power, and that power diminishes when they are shared, so they are best kept and kept well. Sharing secrets, real secrets, important ones, with even one other person, will change them. - Erin Morgenstern

"The man who can keep a secret may be wise, but he is not half as wise as the man with no secrets to keep." –Edgar Watson Howe

“A man who tells secrets or stories must think of who is hearing or reading, for a story has as many versions as it has readers. Everyone takes what he wants or can from it and thus changes it to his measure. Some pick out parts and reject the rest, some strain the story through their mesh of prejudice, some paint it with their own delight. ”

“He had come here with the intention of embarrassing a snide assassin, and had instead found a young woman pouring her secrets into a pianoforte.”“Now you’re looking for the secret... but you wont find it, because of course you’re not really looking. You don’t really want to know. You want to be fooled.”

❝Don’t talk too much about yourself to all your friends. Don’t tell your secret to anyone, even your friend. Don’t tell your mistake or sin to others. Don’t trust others too much because that too much, can hurt you so much. Because there will be a time when that person will use your secret against you or reveal your secret to the others.

When you fight or argue with each other, he will reveal all your secrets to the others to make you look bad in the eyes of people.

Not everyone around you is a true friend, some of them are two-faced (hypocrite). It’s better to keep your secrets to yourself and Allahﷻ Indeed HE is a secret keeper.❞

Losing a parent is so weird

Losing a parent is so weird because you go through the rest of your life not being able to see or talk to them ever again but you still feel like you will. Every once in awhile it all just hits you that they are literally never coming back and you feel the feeling of losing them all over again.

There is no death, daughter. People only die when we forget them,’ my mother explained shortly before she left me. ‘If you can remember me, I will be with you always.’” –Isabel Allende

“Mothers never really die, they just keep the house up in the sky. They polish the sun by day and light the stars that shine at night, keep the moonbeams silvery bright and in the heavenly home above they wait to welcome those they love.” –Helen Steiner Rice

'Life has to end,' she said. 'Love doesn't.'"

"When someone we love dies, the hardest part is not letting go of whom we have lost, it's finding the strength and courage to move forward without them."

"The very worst part of grief is that you can't control it. The best we can do is try to let ourselves feel it when it comes. And let it go when we can." — Grey's Anatomy

God sometimes takes us into troubled waters not to drown us but to cleanse us.

Appreciate those who gossip about you

Appreciate those who gossip about you. It's not easy for someone to leave their own problems and carry yours on their head.

If we all said to people’s faces what we say behind one another’s backs, society would be impossible.

Gossip isn’t scandal and it’s not merely malicious. It’s chatter about the human race by lovers of the same.

“I think if I’ve learned anything about friendship, it’s to hang in, stay connected, fight for them, and let them fight for you. Don’t walk away, don’t be distracted, don’t be too busy or tired, don’t take them for granted. Friends are part of the glue that holds life and faith together. Powerful stuff.” —Jon Katz

“Never leave a friend behind. Friends are all we have to get us through this life—and they are the only things from this world that we could hope to see in the next.” —Dean Koontz

“Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.” —Anais Nin

So live that you wouldn’t be ashamed to sell the family parrot to the town gossip.

Some families are successful because of this

Some families are successful not because they are rich, but because they support one another.

"If minutes were kept of a family gathering, they would show that 'Members not Present' and 'Subjects Discussed' were one and the same." - Robert Brault

"Remember, as far as anyone knows, we're a nice, normal family." - Homer Simpson

"Blood makes you related, Love makes you family." - Unknown

"In the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make." - Paul McCartney

"The only rock I know that stays steady, the only institution I know that works, is the family." - Lee Iacocca

"What can you do to promote world peace? Go home and love your family." - Mother Teresa

"The family – that dear octopus from whose tentacles we never quite escape, nor, in our inmost hearts, ever quite wish to." - Dodie Smith

"The family is the test of freedom; because the family is the only thing that the free man makes for himself and by himself." – Gilbert K. Chesterton

"What can you do to promote world peace? Go home and love your family." - Mother Teresa

"No matter what you've done for yourself or for humanity, if you can't look back on having given love and attention to your own family, what have you really accomplished?" ~ Lee Iacocca

Being alive is the special occasion

Stop saving clothes and shoes for special occasions.
Wear them whenever you can. Being alive is the special occasion!

"If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things."– Albert Einstein

"Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game."– Babe Ruth

 "Money and success don’t change people; they merely amplify what is already there." — Will Smith

"Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking." – Steve Jobs

Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning. Albert Einstein

We're born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we're not alone. Orson Welles

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. Martin Luther King, Jr. 

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. John F. Kennedy

“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well. -Ralph Waldo Emerson

World's best happiness

Happiness is when you realize your children have turned out to be good people.

One of the luckiest things that can happen to you in life is, I think, to have a happy childhood

Every year, when you're a child, you become a different person.

As children, we all live in a world of imagination, of fantasy, and for some of us that world of make-believe continues into adulthood.

“The most powerful way to change the world is to live in front of our children the way we would like the world to be.” – Graham White

“We must remember that one day our children are going to follow our example instead of our advice.” – Carolina King

“If your children fear you, they cannot trust you. If they don’t trust you, they cannot learn from you.” – Lori Petro

“So often children are punished for being human. Children are not allowed to have grumpy moods, bad days, disrespectful tones, or bad attitudes. Yet, us adults have them all the time. None of us are perfect. We must stop holding our children to a higher standard of perfection than we can attain ourselves.” – Rebecca Eanes

“The point of parenting is not to have all the answers before we start out but instead to figure it out on the go as our children grow. Because as they do, so will we.” – Bridgett Miller

“Where did we ever get the crazy idea that in order to make children do better, first we have to make them feel worse? Think of the last time you felt humiliated or treated unfairly. Did you feel like cooperating or doing better?” – Jane Nelsen

“13 things children need more of: unstructured play, nature, hugs, freedom to explore, playtime with parents, laughter, simplicity, belief in their goodness, daily rhythms and rituals, expressed gratitude for who they are, a calm environment, compassion, a shoulder to cry on.”

A Mother is always a Mother

A Mother is always a Mother. No matter how many times you break her heart, she never stops worrying about her children and never stops praying for them.❤️

A Mother is an amazing person. She gives life, she nurtures, she teaches, she cares. She is strong, she is vibrant, she is versatile. She is loyal, she is dedicated, she is diverse. A mother is by no means perfect and every mother makes mistakes. However, she learns as she goes and becomes stronger by the day. There is nobody more determined, there is nobody more committed and there is nobody more dependable than a mother. ~ by Dave Hedges

I feel lucky to have a mother who always cares so much for me; When I am lonely and need some love I go to mom And I get loved; If I need food to get my strength I'll go to mom And I'll be fed ; She always helps If I'm in need so thank you mom for all your love.

She is the creature of life, the giver of life, and the giver of abundant love, care and protection. Such are the great qualities of a mother. The bond between a mother and her child is the only real and purest bond in the world, the only true love we can ever find in our lifetime. -Ama H.Vanniarachchy

That was my mom. You were the most amazing person and mother. I felt so lucky and blessed that you were my mom. I miss you so very much. You are no longer here physically but I know you are always with me. Thank you for the person that I have become. 😍

My mother was far from perfect: I miss mom so much. She is in thoughts lots, but I miss her presence, and voice. I remember everything about her and will always love and cherish her.💕She was loving, funny and happy. I had the best mom on this world. I love you and miss you all the time. Thanks for watching over me and my family.

My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her. - George Washington

“I'm A Mother! Never underestimate me! I know more than I say, and notice more than you realize… I have superpowers and eyes in the back of my head!”

Being alive is a special occasion

Don’t keep your clothes & shoes for special occasions. Wear them whenever you can. Nowadays being alive is a special occasion.

Thank you God for everything, I look at all the blessings too numerous to mention. Thank you God for everything. Count your blessings every day - they're there. It makes all the difference.

People would stop looking at what is depressing to them and count their blessings look what they have in their life to know they’ve been blessed they would become less depressed and more blessed.

I am so very blessed to have my most beautiful family, friends, myself, life and God in my life it's the most important part of my life my family and friends.

I am so blessed to have the most amazing family & friends! Life wouldn't be the same without them!

I’ll never complain I’m just so greatful that I’m being so wonderfully cared by my family. May God watch over each and every one of you each and every night.

Thank you Lord for the roof over my head..but most of the love you given my family.

Praise God thank you for the roof over my head and food to eat and a nice warm bed to sleep in I'm so grateful for light, gas and a blessed family thank you Lord for being so good to me.

Don't pay attention to what people say behind your back

Don't listen to what people say behind you, A lion never look back when dogs bark. Your God is stronger than their witchcrafts.

Some people are real, some people are good, some people are fake and some people are real good at being fake.

It's not about who is real to your face. It's about who stays real behind your back.

Don't worry about what people say behind your back, they are the people who are finding faults in your life instead fixing the faults in their own life.

It is hard to deal with someone who smiles and pretends to like you to your face and sticks that eight inch blade in your back when you turn around.

Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.

Better to have an enemy who slaps you in the face than a friend who stabs you in the back.

Every day we have plenty of opportunities to get angry, stressed or offended. But what you're doing when you indulge these negative emotions is giving something outside yourself power over your happiness. You can choose to not let little things upset you.

Anyone can stay true to your face, it's the people who stay true behind your back that really count.

Avoid him who talks sweetly before you but tries to ruin you behind your back, for he is like a pitcher of poison with milk on top.

Just because they say they're praying for you in your face, doesn't mean they aren't laughing at your struggle behind your back.- Trent Shelton

Never be ashamed of your work

Never be ashamed of the type of work you do, A small salary is better than waiting for someone to give you money.

The most important things are the hardest things to say. They are the things you get ashamed of because words diminish your feelings - words shrink things that seem timeless when they are in your head to no more than living size when they are brought out. Stephen King

Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work. Mother Teresa

Never be ashamed of who you are, your story, or how you react to situations. Don't ever be ashamed of how you communicate with people. Don't ever be ashamed of the person you are. Be you. Roddy Ricch

A return to first principles in a republic is sometimes caused by the simple virtues of one man. His good example has such an influence that the good men strive to imitate him, and the wicked are ashamed to lead a life so contrary to his example. Niccolo Machiavelli

I don't think you should be ashamed of anybody that you know that has AIDS. You should stand as close to them as you can and help them out as much as you can. I'm a strong believer in that and that's why I try to do that for everyone I know that has the virus. Marsha P. Johnson

Frustate them with your Silence

Never respond to insults. The main purpose of an insulter is to make you act without thinking. Frustate them with your silence.

A happy life must be to a great extent a quiet life, for it is only in an atmosphere of quiet that true joy can live.

Silence is an answer to a wise man.

It is better either to be silent or to say things of more value than silence. Sooner throw a pearl at hazard than an idle or useless word; and do not say a little in many words but a great deal in a few.

“It is better either to be silent or to say things of more value than silence. Sooner throw a pearl at Hazard than an idle or useless word; and do not say a little in many words but a great deal in a few.” – Pythagoras

“Let silence be your goal for the most part; say only what is necessary, and be brief about it. On the rare occasions when you’re called upon to speak, then speak, but never about banalities like gladiators, horses, sports, food and drink—common-place stuff…”– Epictetus

Silence is the best answer to someone who doesn't value your words

It's OK

It's OK: To repeat clothes. To use an old phone. To buy 2nd hand items. To live in a small home. It's ok to live a simple life.

A Mother's Dream

No one can ever love their kids like their Mom. I wish I could leave this world when the time comes, knowing that my children will do fine. I love them so much. I can only pray that what I have taught them will keep them safe and loved when I am no longer here.

Being Mother is the highest paid job in the world, since the payment is in pure love.

“My mother has always been my emotional barometer and my guidance. I was lucky enough to get to have one woman who truly helped me through everything.” —Emma Stone

“My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her.” —George Washington

I know how much my mother loves including my dad I feel their love and I know that no one can ever love me like they do no matter how good or bad I have been they have always had my back and I can’t love them enough there is nothing that they haven’t done for me or my children. Me as a mom I can’t love my kids enough no matter how they are to me my love to them will always be unconditional and I know no one can ever love them like I do.

Don't force yourself with people who don't like you

The only people I want in my life are the ones who truly want me in theirs.

The only people I want in my life are the ones who truly want me in theirs. Sometimes it hurts me to know I'm not wanted. It takes a lot of rejection before I finally GET it! But once I get it - I've GOT it!

Sometimes the people feel withdrawn from the circles of friendships and relatives not bcoz of conduct or conscience but of age.

So you want to be happy? Then stop letting the smallest things ruin your whole entire day. If you're bored with your daily routine, do something unexpected. Stop complaining about how alone you are when you're surrounded by people who actually care about you. Forget all the drama and let go of all the grudges you've been holding. Take a risk for once. Let yourself be happy, because you deserve it.

It is not what happens that make you stressed or unhappy, but how you react or think about the situation that makes it worst or better. Do not sweat the small stuff, move on, and be happy.

Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy. ~ Norman Vincent Peale

Teach your children to greet each other

Teach your children to greet each other when they wakeup,
they'll never forget to check on each other when they grow up.
