If you want to enjoy relationships with people, you must first understand them. If you don’t know people, nothing will happen. To know people, I have put together six inspirational quotes that will help you understand the complexities of human beings.
“Some people will never learn anything, for this reason, because they understand everything too soon.”-Alexander Pope, English poet
“People are trapped in history and history is trapped in them.”- James Baldwin, American novelist
“Every man is a volume if you know how to read them.”-William Ellery Channing
“Every human is intended to have a character of his own; to be what no others are, and to do what no other can do.”- William Ellery Channing, preacher
“It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences.”- Andre Lorde, American writer
“The proper study of mankind is man.”- Alexander Pope, English poet
What we are going through today could have been prevented, but we did not prevent them. We allowed them to harm us. We allowed them to set us back. We allowed them to stop us from moving forward. Why?
Many problems we are facing today are not really problems. The way we react to the problems makes them even worse. It is up to you if you want to be reactor or a proactor. It is up to you to make the right decisions to change your circumstances today- right now! It is up to you if you still want to continue hanging out with friends who put you down, who belittle you, who never support anything that you want to do, who never want you to succeed in anything. It is up to you.
It is up to you whether or not you want to start taking responsibility for your actions, and stop blaming people for what has happened to you. The more you blame other people for your own mess, the more frustrated you will be.
It is up to you whether or not you want to forgive people who have treated you badly. It is up to you.
It is up to you whether or not you want to develop yourself- personally and professionally. You can do it if you want to, but it is up to you.
It is up to you to love or hate yourself. It is up to you, not me.
