“Before you can teach, you have to understand; understanding is not found in books, you only find knowledge in books, understanding is found through experience, which means, before you become a great teacher, you have to experience life.” ~M.E
“Failure is a great teacher, and I think when you make mistakes and you recover from them and you treat them as valuable learning experiences, then you’ve got something to share.” ~Steve Harvey

I hate you, I don’t love you anymore, I despise the ground you walk on, you’re an idiot, you make my skin crawl are all emotional door sentences.
The emotion one person feels towards another human being; the reasons behind the outbursts is not given, so therefore there is no way the person on the receiving end of the outbursts can possibly change in any meaningful way to make the angry person change their mind about them.
I hate you because you don’t pay enough attention to me…is a rarity because people don’t think rationally when they’re angry or upset, they just lash out with words they’re sure is going to upset the other person. They may or may not mean to be so cruel, but the person on the receiving end is not going to know that.
Those emotional doors can only be closed by the person that opened them in the first place unless they give more information to the person on the receiving end of the emotional outbursts.
“Arguments are rarely rational but they’re always destructive. And the hardest word to speak after an argument is SORRY.”
The best advice I ever receive was; “Don’t open emotional doors you don’t want to walk through or have slammed in your face.”
Life is an interesting learning curve; if you live long enough, every expectation will be shattered by somebody else’s words or actions.
“Real life is full of real people with real personalities, and every one of them is different.”
The one thing we can be sure of is; bullies who go around causing trouble will eventually come across somebody like themselves who is not kind or considerate and they will be taught a lesson they will not forget in a hurry. That’s not karma, that’s life.
“If you can’t prove or disprove an idea; you can build a religion around it.” ~Faith
“What you give to others will be given back to you.” ~”Only give what you want to receive”. ~Life

Physical injuries are treatable by doctors, some injuries take a long time to heal and some only require an antibiotic but when the soul is injured, it is like it is surrounded by a constant fog and the only thing that can help the soul to heal is prayer and exercise. Why exercise you ask; because exercise gives prayer a boost that allows it to work twice as fast as prayer alone.
What’s worse is, some people spend their whole lives enshrined in a fog that never lifts, they don’t get to appreciate the crystal clear sunlit days like everybody else; the most ironic thing is, that fog is created by their minds to protect them from the outside world but, not only does it protect them it also stops them for appreciating everything that is good in life too. My prayers go out to the people in the fog, I hope my prayers are strong enough to burn through the fog and let them live in the sunshine once more.
“Change will never stick if you constantly remember who you were.” And it is for that very reason you have to forget before you can learn; if you spend all your time saying, “I was insecure but that isn’t who I am today,” the first part of the sentence is a constant reminder of who you can be; if you change that sentence to, “I’m very secure at all times,” you will be only reminded about who you are today.
“Always remember yourself as the person you want to be, not as the person you’re not.”

“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” ~ Albert Einstein.
“You will not fix any problem using the same thoughts that created the problem in the first place.”
“If you find you are digging a hole for yourself when you start talking without thinking; it’s time to stop digging.”

The most gifted writers have put pen to paper over the eons but they still haven’t managed to accurately put into words the deep emotional love a mother has for her children because there are no words to describe those feelings; those feelings go beyond words used by physical beings.
