You can't let people scare you. You can't go your whole life trying to please everyone else. You can't go through life worried about what everyone else is going to think. Whether it's your hair, clothes, what you have to say, how you feel, what you believe and what you have. You can't let the judgment of others let you stop you from being you. Because if you do, you're no longer you. You're someone everyone else wants you to be.
This afternoon a guy asked me if I was looking for a relationship, companionship, or marriage. I said, "none of the above. I decided I like my freedom. I recently had a boyfriend after being divorced for 5 years...it ended in epic fashion. I'll go out like I always did, finding dates is never a problem, but at the end of the day--they go their way and I go mine. I like doing my own thing more than I fear being alone." He stared at me and I said, "I'm just tired of all the bullshit. Rather not have to deal with it." #relationships#stevemaraboli
I've gone through some stuff in my life and still continue to do so, but I'd like to think that even now whilst I'm still trying to push through all that stuff that I'm not a horrible person. I'd absolutely hate to be a horrible person. I'm an honest person, okay I'm not very open and yes some stuff is defining who I am at the moment but that's not to say it's defining me in to a horrible person who hasn't got a heart. I've got a heart that will make time for anyone and I always put others before myself. I know not always a good thing but I couldn't allow myself to be a horrible person because of what I've seen or gone through. I'm not always the nicest person to be around, I 100% know that and I know I can be difficult to be around but that doesn't define who I am as a person. I just know that the stuff I've gone through I'd hate for anyone else to go through and without sounding like I'm being big headed I have got a good heart

#DAY75 • After a confusing week and a half of messages with my ex where I’m left feeling pretty used and ultimately unimportant, I’m trying to remember this. I let her in, and I gave her a bit of myself, and she chose not to take it. Now it’s time to refocus on the inner work. Today I took myself for breakfast and did some ‘therapeutic’ writing, and now I’m off to hang out with one of my favourite people for the evening. Self love is where it’s at, rejected or not 💓 #stevemaraboli#youdeservethebest#selflovefirst#365daysemptytowhole
Don’t let your history interfere with your destiny. Make a pact with yourself today to not be defined by your past.
Stay focused on refining, improving, and enhancing your life NOW... and remember that sometimes the greatest thing to come out of all your hard work isn't what you GET for it, but what you BECOME for it.
Letting go is incredibly difficult.
No matter if we cling to worries about the future, or if we keep replaying the mistakes of the past again and again in our mind, it can be quite painful when you have difficulties to move on.
The desperate attempt to hold on to the things that were familiar to us limits our capability to experience happiness and joy in the present moment.
Life is all about continuous change. This means to us that no matter how hard we try to keep things as they are, we will sooner or later be confronted with relentless changes, whether we like it or not. However, as soon as we cease our attempts to own and control the environment we are living in, we open up ourselves to new possibilities.
The truth is, unless you let go, unless you forgive yourself, unless you forgive the situation, unless you realize that the situation is over, you cannot move forward.
A last one for the row as some people insist and persist in their narcissistic attempt to convince themselves and me apparently of their right while I closed the door behind as soon as I saw their true colours. But anyhow, let me waste some extra time for the sake of our so-called friendship. First of all, accusing people of actions they didn’t do by using obviously way too big and difficult words for your understanding, isn’t an act of honesty but rudeness based on misplaced proud, immaturity and stupidity. And definitely when the person was extremely polite and limited herself to only good wishes towards your person and your happiness despite her own hurt feelings. Pleading for honesty but not accepting others to be honest when confronted with your contradictions, isn’t really consistent. Very often those who pretend to hate drama are the ones who create it and who overreact to the point of posting stuff concerning the matter 2 days later. Self control and maturity aren’t given to everyone, reflecting your shortcomings on others isn’t the way to go. Aging doesn’t stand for honesty or maturity. Wisdom and acting according wisdom is, assuming your actions and choices is, communicating as adults is, being human is. But I guess some are just made to illustrate what a contradiction and disappointment people can be and how fakeness never stands tall for too long. Actions speak louder than words and this situation proved who the better person is. Once again, good luck further. #quoteoftheday#quotes#wordporn#stevemaraboli#drama#soul#growth#nourishment#narcissism#gunviolence#aggressiveness#doorclosed#goodbye
I feel for all of you going through something tough. I get what it’s like to feel scared to tell someone what you’re feeling and just wishing that sleep could make you forget all of your problems. But just know that there’s hope ♥️ and that even if you feel like there’s not a light at the end of the tunnel - believe me that THERE IS. I hope that you have at least one person you can turn to ask for help and I hope that you offer help back. Be willing to talk about what scares you and what you need to make you happy. Be open with the true you and know that there are people out there that will support you in your struggles. But there’s my wish for all of you - that you’ll be happy and know that you are worth it. #selflove#vulnerability#stevemaraboli
Whether it's your parents, friends, family, or some random hater online.....who gives 2 💩💩's what people think? 😲
When it comes to making decisions about your life, the only opinion that truly matters is your own 👍👍
You have to live with you. You have to live with your decisions, or lack thereof 👊💥
Do you want to be that 93 year old person that says "what if"? No? Then don't! 🔥
Passion, purpose, and patience will lead you down your right path 😎
Hi 👋😊 Remember, at any given point you can release your greatest self. Don’t let anyone hold you back. Don’t let anyone dilute you. Don’t be peer pressured into being less than you are.
People willing to dilute themselves for the sake of others is one of the great tragedies of our time. Stop letting others define and set the pace for your life.
Get out there and be your best. Do your best. Live your best. Make every day count and you’ll see how exponentially more exciting, thrilling, successful, happy, and full your life will be. 😃
