๐ป๐‘’๐“ƒ๐“๐‘œ ๐’ป๐“‡๐‘’๐“ƒ๐“ˆ, so today I decided Iโ€™d try my hand at painting with acrylics again, and itโ€™s very safe to say I cannot paint hands for the life of me. It has been 4 hours of painting, 6 episodes of Stranger Things S2, and 3 slices of pizza laterโ€ฆ I think Iโ€™m ready for bed.

If I ever have kids, that is considering I still want kids by then, I hope I can impart some wisdom to them. I mean, I still have no idea what Iโ€™m doing so the very concept of having smaller versions of myself running around isโ€ฆ terrifying, to say the least. Itโ€™s not always a walk in the park when it comes to raising kids, so Iโ€™ve heard (particularly from my mother). If my children for whatever reason listen to nothing that I say, I hope theyโ€™ll at least remember these three things.

1. Be kind to yourself:

Life can be unbearable at times. Sometimes youโ€™ll doubt yourself or feel alone. Things can get worse before they ever get better. That doesn't mean you have to change your whole outlook on life or be this overly positive version of yourself. Be gentle with yourself, remember you are human, youโ€™ll make mistakes, have regrets, and thatโ€™s completely valid. You can be your own worst enemy, but you can also be your own greatest ally.

2. Give respect until respect is no longer deserved:

quotes, respect, and worth image

We meet people in life who are actual walking, talking, breathing dumpster fires (as harsh as that sounds, Iโ€™m not wrong). But you canโ€™t assume everyone is a piece of flaming trash. Let them show you who they truly are, allow yourself to determine whether or not they are worth an ounce of your respect.

3. You canโ€™t force someone to be there for you:

Having people who you know will be there and support you is great, itโ€™s reassuring. Regardless, you canโ€™t always expect them to be there, to drop everything for you on your terms. Thatโ€™s not how it works. You canโ€™t expect or demand someone to make a sacrifice for you, that isnโ€™t fair to them. Just like trust or respect, it is earned and it is given out of that personโ€™s own free will.
