Inspirational Quotes: About the impossibility of pleasing others

Inspirational Quotes: About the impossibility of pleasing others

Isn’t it funny how humans feel the need to be accepted and to be loved? Children crave for their parent’s approval by violently shouting “Mommy look, mommy look here”. Even as adults, we are ready to embark on long and exhausting journeys just to please others in order for them to have a good opinion about us and to love us back. We are seeking harmony and in doing so there is a risk of getting lost in trying to please everybody. When saying “no” seems an insuperable barrier think about this story:

 

“A man was riding on his donkey with his son walking next to him. They were heading home when they encountered a hiker who said: “That is not right. How come you are riding the donkey? As the father you have stronger limbs than your son.” The man immediately jumped off the donkey and allowed his son to take his place. Shortly after that, they encountered another hiker who said: “That is not right son. How come you are riding the donkey? As the son one you have younger legs”. Then they both sat and rode on the donkey until a third hiker came along who said: “What a torment my eyes see. How come two men are riding on that poor donkey? Someone should take a stick and chase you off that weak thing.” Ashamed, they both went off of the donkey and continued going by foot with the donkey in the middle of them. Finally, a forth hiker crossed their path and said: “What a odd sight. Isn’t it enough if two of you are walking by foot? Wouldn’t it easier if one was riding?” The man and his son then tied the front and the back legs of the donkey together and fixed them to a tree stake to carry the donkey on their shoulders all the way home.”

 

What good did listening to all opinions do? Eventually, we can’t stop people from having opinions but we can stop their opinions from having an impact on our life (unless we allow it).

They take care of their children, from giving them baths, changing their diapers, cooking every meal for their family, (even if some mom’s don’t cook- they still think of a way how to prepare food and feed their family), clean the house. Not only does she physically take care of us, her children, but she also nurtures us, instill(s) in us from what is right, and wrong. She is always there for us, to catch us when we fall, to explain to us our failures and how we can learn and rise from our mistakes. She is like a teacher, psychologist, counselor, that never gets paid, however you never hear her complain.

There are different kinds of mothers, there are mom’s that are like your best-friends, mom’s that are like soldiers , working-moms, single moms.

Mothers take their children to school, and be at every event their kid has in school, whether it is a talent show, soccer, basketball game or whatever sports competition their son or daughter has.

Even if sometimes we have fights with her (our moms), she still forgives us, and continues to be our friend, our rock, our mother, and just be there for us to support us in everything we do.

They see to it that they are there to support and encourage their children, even if she has to work or even if she’s just a house-wife mom or a single mom.

Whatever kind of mother you are: Mama, Mom, Mother, Mamita, we may not say it often, but before it is too late,  we the children just want to say thank you and we love you!

Inspirational Quotes – Because you are Worth it!

Inspirational Quotes – Because you are Worth it!

 

They say ‘dress to impress’ but what people usually don’t tell is that the only person in the world you genuinely need to impress is yourself. Confidence is nothing that can ever be instilled in you. All the appreciation in the world cannot make you whole if you feel like not being worth it.

So ask yourself when was the last time you took yourself out for a treat? When did you last let this body of yours enjoy a nice scrub? How long is it ago that you bought something just for yourself and nobody else? There are even plenty of things you can do to pamper yourself that do not require a lot of money. Grab a piece of your favorite chocolate and, for that moment, pay your utmost attention to enjoying that piece of chocolate to the maximum. Feel how it is melting in your mouth. Taste each and every bite of it. Or jump on the bed and scream your lungs out to your favorite tunes. Be kind to yourself! Pamper your body with good food and enough sleep. Wake up knowing that all you need to do is being yourself. Appreciate the body you are in and embrace your existence! There is no one like you and there will never be. Impress yourself and start so as of today.
