kindness matters

be happy. be kind. be loving.

growing up means letting go.

it’s time to let go of hard feelings, bitterness, and selfishness.

i know, it’s hard. especially because doing most of those things means letting go of yourself. it means letting go of certain feelings that you have. it means putting other people’s feelings before your own, at times.
sometimes it feels like you just have to hold on to that grudge, or it just seems totally impossible to let go of something that hurt you.

sometimes people say stupid things that they don’t mean, and sometimes they do mean things.
we can’t take things to heart so much, we need to learn to let go.
everyone has their own battles that they are fighting. we don’t know how much someone needs a friend. it’s impossible to know what is going through someone’s head, until we try talking to them.
i know that when i get in a bad mood, or i start thinking too much, i can be mean and rude. it is something i need to work on. but i know that i’m not the only one.
when i get like that, i really just need to talk to someone.

it’s hard for us to put ourselves aside and open our eyes to what’s really going on. sometimes we just need to be a friend. and it may be to someone we don’t particularly like, but that’s okay.

if we are putting God first in our lives, it should be pretty easy to help out others.
if we are continually repenting, it should be easy to let go of bitterness and hard feelings.
if we can set aside just 10 minutes a day to dedicate purely to the Lord, our days would go so much smoother. we would be in such a better mood.
and if we could apply the things we learn, from those 10 minutes a day, to our everyday life, it would be so much easier to love one another, and to be kind and happy.

if we are happy ourselves, it is so much easier to love and be kind to others.
we need to be selfish with our own happiness, but unselfish when it comes to other people’s feelings and loving everyone.
let go of things that make you unhappy, and find the things that make you happy.

James 1:19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:
20 For the wrath of man worketh not righteousness of God.
