Quotes For The Soul: Traumas

I once had someone tell me
that he couldn’t be with me
because of my past traumas.
Not because I hadn’t processed them
but because I had and chosen to forgive.
He couldn’t bring himself to do the same.
Before then, I had never thought about
the people who’d love me later in life.
That they too would have to process and
forgive the same people who hurt me
before they even knew or loved me.

We don’t have to do all of it alone. We were never meant to.” -Brené Brown

Quotes for the Soul: Changes

That thing you keep fighting against isn’t “them”. Its your spirit telling you it’s time to operate differently. But like the humans we are, our natural reaction is to fight against it. Enter that other zone! Step away from all you’ve known and take hold of the discomfort needed to level up in all aspects, it’s time! No more excuses. Just do it.

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” –Barack Obama

Quotes For The Soul: Potential

Potential- Capable of being but not yet in existence; latent.

I have trouble walking this very fine line that divides potential and reality. More often than not women tend to skew reality into their own fantasy simply based on unexplored infatuation. We get wrapped up in the passion, chemistry and what COULD be and in turn become completely oblivious to the possible incompatability with our current love interest. I am becoming more aware of my tendency to get lost in the potential and at times mistake it or paint it into reality. In turn, I just end wasting my time because I didn’t take it for what it was, mere potential. Capable of being but not yet in existence; latent.

We Owe It To Ourselves To Stop Falling In Love With Potential” –Monica Torres
