Getting Over Differences

Each of us is so different and unique and the views and opinions that we have about the world could be compared to night and day. Sometimes we find similarities in people and other times we can’t see eye to eye and that’s okay. We have all grown up differently and we have had different life experiences, so our views and opinions on certain things in life are going to be vastly different.

As hard as it may be, it is important to keep and open mind when trying to help others through a difficult time, even if what they are going through is not necessarily something that you and them see eye to eye about. Loved ones support each other no matter what, this doesn’t mean that you have to agree with it, but it’s important to not judge others. Only you know what’s best for you and only they know what is truly best for them.

I am a very strong-minded person and I have certain views that I don’t take lightly. I have learned to set aside my own strong feelings and views when trying to help someone who sees things the opposite as I do. I try to remove my feelings from the situation and look at how and why this person could be feeling the way they do. It’s no easy task, but an important one because when I need support from my loved ones, I’m happy when others easily support me even if they may not agree with my decisions or thoughts. Remember, you are supporting the person, not necessarily the decision the person has made etc. Wishing you a beautiful week and thank you for reading!

Left on Read

We have all experienced that feeling of being “left on read.” For those of you unfamiliar with that term, it basically means that you have texted someone and they read your text, but they have not responded. I’m not sure about you all, but being left on read is a HUGE pet peeve of mine. It evokes a lot of feelings for me from sadness to anger. I start to question and wonder what happened and why someone chose to not respond back. Sounds trivial, but it really does bother me.

Often we hear people say phrases like “I’ve been so busy,” or “I read your message, then forgot to respond when I had a moment.” To me, there is no such thing as too busy. Yes we get busy and we get caught up in life, but we always have time for things and those that matter the most to us. Many people are not bothered by a lack of response, I don’t like that I am one of them! I believe that if we do not take an unanswered text personally, it feels better and is easier to accept.

What are your thoughts? Are you bothered when someone does not text you back? Wishing you all a beautiful weekend!

Paranormal: Life Beyond

For most of us, we go about our daily lives not thinking about the inevitable, unless we know of someone who is sick or who has passed away, we don’t typically think of death. We all have different views about what happens to our souls after we pass away. For me, I believe that when we die we go to Heaven. I truly believe that there is a life beyond anything that we can begin to understand waiting for us. I’ve always believed this to be true, but have an even deeper understanding of this since having many paranormal experiences from childhood that still continue to this day.

As a child, I grew up in two homes that had a spirit inside. I was scared out of my mind being a child and not being aware of why this was happening to me. The spirits were thankfully good ones, but scared me nonetheless. I recall times where I could hear breathing and footsteps, things would fly off of the counter, the TV would turn on and off all by itself, sometimes many times in a row as if it were trying to make its presence known. There was just an energy in these homes that was enough to give someone chills. Although these experiences created an immense amount of anxiety for me as a child, now that I am an adult those experiences are actually rather comforting and uplifting knowing that life on Earth is not the end of our existence. I always knew that life did not stop here, however having actually experiencing it just furthers my beliefs.

I have unfortunately lost several people that I was extremely close to and having experiences after their passing has given me so much peace and reassurance that one day we will all be reunited with our loved ones. Again, you may have different beliefs and I absolutely respect that, I am just sharing my experiences and how I feel on this subject. Please feel free to comment below if you have had any paranormal experiences from beyond!
