In my experience, when you’re willing to meet someone halfway which I interpret as “respecting and hearing their perspective” that inevitably encourages them to reciprocate that to you. Kindness breeds kindness and meanness breeds meanness. A great deal of the time, you’ll get what you give. It’s very true.
Being true to myself above all else. That’s one of the few times my heart shouts when I don’t listen to a whisper. You can tell when you’re going against your own nature and what’s good for you. At least it’s obvious to me.
“V for Vendetta” impacted me quite a bit. The impressive writing blew me away. “Inside Out” is also very educational in terms of understanding and grappling with emotions. There’s a lot to learn there even though it’s targeted at children.
I tend to focus way too much on things beyond my control. World problems, the big picture, and all the negatives within that big picture. I need to devote more time to my personal life and the little wins I achieve in it. This would then strengthen my motivation to help on the big picture stage and not feel so helpless.
Mindfulness and committing myself to the present moment. Being thankful for where I am right now while still honoring the pursuit of my long-term goals.
I totally can relate to the lack of confidence piece. It’s hard work changing the internal dialogue but we can! Your aspirations are very admirable 🙂
