Yes. Too many people - especially girls - are hardening themselves. They think that being tough and unfeeling equals strength. To me, true strength means not letting other people change who you are. If you are kind, sensitive, compassionate, and feeling, be strong enough and esteem yourself enough that you will never let those virtues go, no matter what the world tries to tell you or do to you.

True Gentlemen, Be A Man, Other Woman, Women Jealous, True Gentleman, My Husband, Girl Jealous, So True, My Man
Truth. BOYS, quit being immature fucks and trying to make your girl jealous. Be a man or be single =]
True Gentleman: A boy makes his girl jealous of other women. A true gentlemen makes other women jealous of his girl.
I also like what the last pinner said : "As much as I agree with this, I have to say that my man doesn't even make me think of the other women. I guess that makes him more than a "true gentleman", that makes him my true love <3"
My husband does this (makes other women jealous of how he treats me)!
So true gentlemen
Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die. So true, but so hard to let go sometimes...
Inspirational Quote, Remember This, Buddha Quote, So True, Favorite Quotes, Letting Go, Anger Quote, Wise Word
Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die. I really need to think about this more right now. I can't seem to let go of the anger toward of someone who cost me my job because I needed to hold onto my integrity.
Must remember this!! But letting go of the anger doesnt mean I have to like that person anymore does it? Cause then the ANGER just returns...lol
Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die - Buddha - #anger #quote Forgiveness is like cutting the anchor loose from a ship
Try to remember this and not use anger to shield against being hurt <3 Those whom have chosen to be enemy who should be Christian to still be family drink poison each day they expect me to give up & die <3 I still pray for them <3 There was NEVER a need to be so vindictive or cruel as I NEVER was charged w/DV & they should know it. Then why continue to hate me or want me to suffer for their sins? It's a cover-up! They think they are righteous as Satan has us divorced not working for God.Let go!

Remember This, Latenight, Go To Sleep, Late Nights, Truth, So True, Morning, Late Night Thoughts, Good Advice
This is the honest truth! Late night ideas should always be evaluated in the morning before thought of as a good idea!
Guilty as charged. Sometimes it really is simply best to go to sleep and reconsider everything in the morning.
I'm laughing my butt off. Every night before I go to bed I tell myself all the stuff I'm going to accomplish, how I'll workout, go to the store, walk my dog, shower and maybe catch up on some NCIS...and then when I wake up in the morning, I spend the day in bed reading or on the Internet. This is so true!
Now If I Could Only Remember This While I'm Blabbing to My InnerSelf Late @ Night!!! SMH... #TRUTH
This is so true. Why do I stay up all night telling myself stupid things? I wake up in the morning and think, "That was silly." But I still do it.
Need to remember this when these late night thoughts get the best of me.
Good advice, need to remember this.
OH SO TRUE!! Must remember this!!

Remember This, Body Image, Truth, So True, Thought, Fitness Motivation
last pinner said ;This is to all of the people obsessed with fad dieting, over-exercising, depriving yourself of the things you want to eat, changing yourself in hopes of finding the "one", and not loving yourself enough to know that you're beautiful regardless of the number on a scale. -Alicia James <3
Loving yourself is the first step to becoming your better self. And remember, you don't need skinny, you need to be healthy!! #loveyourself...im on the road to a healthy me thanks to #travisthetrainer
Or both...this is how I transformed my struggles with food, binge eating, self-starvation anorexia, distorted body image...all outer manifestation of inner pain and unresolved emotional baggage. Now my hubs and I lead groups and do private life coaching with this as the message...love yourself and the body you have...and heal from the inside out.
"When I got this straight in my head I was able to heal my past and get over years of struggles with anorexia and bulimia eating disorders." I totally agree with this girl! the most important thing is that you love yourself for what you are!
It can be really hard to remember this. But it is oh so true.
Fitness motivation: "Love yourself" comes first.
truth. you love yourself fit.
Love Yourself. So true.
Thoughts are things...
What breaks my heart more is that he couldnt talk to me or anyone about it. If only he had hinted it rather than hide it completely behind lies, maybe I could have helped him. Because Ive been in that same place, and I know that there is hope for recovery, because Im recovering now. If only he knew. If only I could have communicated it to him.
