Forgive

forgiveNo matter how good you try to be to others, you will occasionally hurt them.

Forgive yourself for it.

By : Author Unknown

I always manage to step on someones toes.  No matter how careful I am, no matter the precautions I take, someone takes issue with something I say or do.  I’m told “You can’t please all the people, all the time,” but upsetting people hurts me.  i don’t like it when people think less of me.  I take it personally.  I hold onto it for way to long.

Forgiving myself is a hard one. I am intelligent and insightful.  Why did I not see it coming?  Did I   subconsciously do it on purpose?  My imagination goes crazy.

Destiny

Watch your thoughts; they become words.

Watch your words; they become actions.

Watch your actions; they become habits.

Watch your habits; they become character.

Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

Helping Hand

Never look down on anybody unless you’re helping him up.

By : Jesse Jackson

“Never look down on anybody” are words the world could live by, especially in the world of mental health.  I’ve run across way too many people during my 50 plus years, even people in the healthcare field, that take on an air of superiority when working with someone with a diagnosis.  We are highly intelligent, creative individuals acceptably (most of the time) functioning in this trying world with more to manage than the “normal” person.  And dame it, we do a pretty fine job of it considering.
