Apologizing is not always easy. You have to be willing to admit to doing wrong, to being ignorant, or to hurting someone. It takes strength and personal courage to apologize.
When delivering an apology be real and be willing to admit you were wrong. We all make mistakes. How you handle those mistakes is a demonstration of your personal character.
You are stronger than you think, because you are a human being.
Mankind has overcome natural disasters, wars, tyranny, atrocities done by our own kind, and a massive list of other obstacles or difficulties. However, the human spirit refused to surrender. Humans continue surviving, regardless of the circumstances.
Don’t underestimate yourself or your power as a human being. You are stronger than you think.
Today is National Random Acts of Kindness Day, so take time to be kind.
I really enjoyed this video. It helped me to gain a new perspective on my own abilities and personal struggles.
I decided to share it with my blog followers and hope that you will benefit as well.
Is peace possible?
According to Webster’s Dictionary, peace is defined as a “state of tranquility or quite; freedom from civil disturbance.”
Humans are social beings with a natural desire to connect, to be a part of a group. We also seem to have a natural tendency to fear groups that are different and to look down upon other groups.
Peace isn’t easy. Peace takes work. We have to look deep into ourselves and confront our own demons, before we can be peacemakers. To actually have peace in this world, we all must be willing to go through that uncomfortable process.
I fear this world will never be at peace, because there will always be those who are unwilling to work for peace.
What are your thoughts on the possibility of peace?
It’s easy to judge others. It’s harder to put ourselves in their shoes, view the world as they see it, and offer forgiveness. However, there will come a time when we are the one’s in need of forgiveness. We all do things of which we are not proud. We all feel pain and emotional distress. We all bleed red.
Who controls you? Do you have an internal or an external locus of control?
Those who believe outside forces completely determine what will happen to them, have an external locus of control. They view obstacles as insurmountable and believe they are unable to change their life circumstances.
Those who believe they can impact their life through their own actions, have an internal locus of control. They are not immune to unfortunate events, trauma, or other obstacles. However, they focus on finding solutions to their problems.
It is important to notice, bad things happen to people in both groups. The difference is in how they view negative events and in how they deal with the problems created by those events.
