Thought of the Moment

Winning an argument

If you enter into a conversation or argument with someone you love with the intention of "winning," then you are really fighting a battle. You are trying to take your opponent down or put them in their place. The only thing you are going to win is a broken relationship. Winning over your partner means your whole relationship is losing. The only time anyone wins an argument is if both parties leave it feeling heard, respected, and loved.

- Emily Maroutian

 

One Life

If you suddenly realized this entire thing was a dream, and you could suddenly do whatever you wanted (other than hurting someone) what would you do? Whatever answer that you came up with, do that.

- Kyle Cease

 

Our Limitations

People can only be as good as they are, no matter how much they love you.

- Demi Moore

 

Thoughts on Forgiving Those Who Aren't Sorry

Hold others to the same standard that you hold yourself. Unless they're children or mentally disabled, expect other people to behave, or at least try to behave, as ethically as you do, or at least try to. If you forgive them for doing something that you would not forgive yourself for doing, you are claiming that you are their superior. If they do something to you that any reasonable person would know is wrong, but they refuse to apologize to you, they are telling you that they consider themselves your superior, and they don't respect you.

 

How We're Wired

People don't move into action because of statistics. They move because of their hearts. We're hardwired with empathy neurons, billions of them, and human beings are evolutionarily programmed to help one another.

- Rivera Sun

 

From Darkness to Paradise

I was in darkness, but I took three steps and found myself in paradise. The first step was a good thought, the second, a good word; and the third, a good deed.

- Friedrich Nietzsche

 

Friendship

I would rather walk with a friend in the dark, than alone in the light.

- Helen Keller

 

Self Acceptance

There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.

- John Lennon

 

True Forgiveness

True forgiveness is when you can say "thank you for that experience."

- Oprah Winfrey

 

Embrace Change

Some people don't like change, but you need to embrace change if the alternative is disaster.

- Elon Musk
