It is sometimes hard to be assertive with the people that are closest to us, family + friends. But at the end of the day, it is better to respect yourself and say your truth no matter what these people will think. When you say your truth it can only bring your more good out of the situation. Love yourself, be confident in your truth - it’s as valuable as anyone else’s.
Charlie and his girlfriend Randi were aboard Continental Airlines flight 191 from Newark to San Francisco. Shortly after takeoff the pilot made this announcement: “I have an important message for the passenger in seat 3-B. Will you marry the gentleman in seat 3-A? If the answer is yes, press the Call Button for the flight attendant.” As Randi burst into tears, Charlie kept saying “Push the button!” When she did, a flight attendant came up with a silver tray, champagne and the ring!
“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.”—Elizabeth Gilbert (via reginede)
“In truth, relationships just show us to ourselves.
We give people clues on how to love us
as they see us loving ourselves
It is truly about us and our relationship with us
that then gets reflected back.
We attract the people that will allow us to grow,
who will invite us to grow,
who will ask us to step up and into
our highest self-expression.
This doesnt always happen consciously
or pleasently…it just happens.
