human nature

Human nature is a bundle of characteristics, including ways of thinking, feeling, and acting, which humans are said to have naturally. – Source (Wikipedia)

Yes, I do want to tell people to go fuck themselves from time to time. But because I feel I need to get a better grip on my emotions, I do not do it. People do not control my reactions, I do. Yesterday was quite an exhausting day. It was not so much because I had a lot of things on my plate. No, not at all. This had more to do with the fact that I had to deal with negativity. Let me tell you something, there is nothing more draining than being around Negative Nancies. I usually avoid talking about super personal stuff, but exceptions can be made.

Life is beautiful. I am thankful and blessed to be living the life I lead. My parents are healthy, they love me and support me. Their wisdom and continued guidance is a constant comfort to me. I am my own person, so we do not always see eye-to-eye. But in most cases, especially when it comes to people, I need a bit more help.

I am trying as much as I can to understand human nature.

I know I was not always the easiest person to get along with. This is something that I acknowledge, I own it, and I deal with it. None of us are perfect, but I do strive to be a better version of myself. Like I have said many times before: I am my only competition.

No one is my competition, not in any shape or form. What I bring to the table is inherently mine. The same goes for others. We are all unique and I love my uniqueness. Some might say ‘crazy,’ but we are never going to survive unless we get a little crazy.

Enjoy one of my favorite songs. I love this song because of my mother. I love you Mom! <3

I love learning new things, so I welcome all experiences.

The older I get, the more I try to teach myself that there are no good and bad experiences. Things we go through in life awaken either good or bad emotions within us, that is a given. Time has taught me that it is all about how we deal with them. And also, what kind of outlook we have on life.

Do I think of myself as a perfect person? Not at all. I am FAR from perfect. Dealing with people with different characters is not easy, but it is necessary. We need to learn to stand above our feelings & look at the bigger picture. When working in a team, we do not have to like each other, know each others’ secrets. None of that. But we do need cohesion. Getting the job done is more important than my own personal feelings.

I am human. I make mistakes. The same way I am having trouble dealing with other people’s quirks, people also have issues with mine.

Every single day, I strive to be a better version of myself. I think of myself as my own Masterpiece.

This is another test I shall pass with flying colors. Everything we go through has a purpose, we just need to find it. In this case, I feel I need to work more on acceptance. This means that I have to accept human nature. It is something I cannot change.

I also realize that just as I am a bit pissed off about certain things I found out. But I am not perfect, people also have issues with me.

I shall take this experience to humble myself more. Also, I think we also see things in others that we do not like about ourselves. Perhaps there is something I need to work on?
