Friday Frills

Appreciate those who have hurt you, because they strengthen your heart.
Appreciate those who deceive you, because they improve your judgement
Appreciate those who leave you stranded, because they teach you independence.

Appreciate those who slander against you, because they improve your personality.
Appreciate those who make you stumble, because they strengthen your walk away. 
Appreciate those who denounce you, because they remind you of your shortcomings


Appreciate those who graze you with their words, because they help your skin grow a little tougher. 
Appreciate those who turn you down, because they arouse your will to fight
 for what you believe in. 
Appreciate those who disappoint you, because they teach you to be self-reliant. 

Appreciate those who break your trust, because they help dissolve your naivety. 
Appreciate those who demean you, because it will grant you the capacity to rise above them. 
Appreciate those who mock you for being different, because they illustrate your uniqueness.

Appreciate those who are unfair to you, because they will allow you to seek justice. 
Appreciate those who are prejudiced towards you, because they show you the importance of being tolerant. 
Appreciate those who are hostile toward you, because they improve your ability to be sympathetic. 

Appreciate those who criticize you, because they remind you to keep on improving yourself. 
Appreciate those you lie to you, because they establish the importance of being honest. 
Appreciate those who discourage you, because they keep you determined and urge you to succeed.

Appreciate that whatever happens to you, good or bad, there is a lesson to be learnt from it, and 
Not only will it make you stronger, it will turn you into the best person you can be.

Lilli said...

Morning Sam! You have no idea how much love your today words! It is just what I need to start the day!:) In life always and suddenly happen bad things or meet wrong people or just the ones are into our life already arent good at all and make us feel down. One lesson I have learn is to always be honest to ourselves and dont let anything or anyone could influence us, making us feel upset and especially not good enough for the purpose we are pursing. I think the best way to face it is just being faithful and concentrated in our life, knowing that there is always something new (good or bad) to learn from every experience or people met, and this makes us stronger and grow more:) Have a great Friday my dear, big hugs! xo

Busisiwe Mgoboli said...

This words are so true! I always say for myself equal what happens it has any sense because it is sure that I have to learn one more thing. And it´s often only possible to learn during solving problems ... Solving problems learned me the most in my life!

Wish you a wonderful weekend, dearest Sam <3

Denise said...

Wow, you wrote the part in pink! And everything is so amazing, you are great! I agree with you, although it's not easy to treasure who undermine a person... but you are right - I really love that "because then you will succeed". It's not to show the person who undermines, but to ourselves our value! By the way, no, not that I was ahead in fashion - many people were then - it's the beach culture, that's why!

Gabriele said...

this is just beautiful. thanks for such lovely inspiration on this friday night!

I always say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, but you (and the unknown author) say it more eloquently, no doubt. I'm very thankful for all the shit that happened to me and people often don't get that... But you do, apparently.:)

LaTasha Bunting said...
