To Do When a Relationship Fails

1. SPEND TIME WITH YOURSELF

Don’t be surrounded by friends who try to free you of responsibility. Work on your person. After all, it is the portion you are taking into tomorrow.

2. SPEND TIME WITH STRANGERS

Rub shoulders with people who don’t know “the story.” Let them absorb you. Allow them to evaluate who you truly are. Build your confidence back up by realizing the appeal you possess.

3. REACH FOR A NEW PROJECT

Human beings do not succeed unless they’re pressing forward. Allow yourself to be energized by the best aspects of a worthy endeavor. Then let that gentle experience give you the personal counsel you desire.

Three Ways To Build Your Faith… February 26, 2015

Our faith is usually drained by being punctured by some sort of disappointment.

It centers on three different styles:

A. “I am disappointed by people”

B. “I am disappointed by the response I am receiving.”

C. “I am disappointed by my progress.”

These disappointments take root in us because we ask a trio of foolish questions:

  • Why aren’t people nicer?
  • Why don’t people accept me for who I am?
  • Why are things moving so slowly?

Honestly, the answer to all three of these questions is, “That’s the way it was created and that’s the way it was meant to be.”

So until you tune yourself to the hum of the Universe, you will find yourself singing off-key.

Here are three ways to build your faith:

1. Stop needing, requiring or requesting the approval of other human beings.

They are going to be very busy with their own concerns. It does not make them selfish–it makes them focused and human.

2. Don’t try so hard.

The truth is, our “game face” should exude a peaceful joy. Sweating, frowning, grunting, groaning, bitching or sometimes even praying is a sign of a loss of confidence in what God has provided for us along with a belief that we “just don’t have enough.”

I have a simple philosophy: when it starts getting difficult, I take a break and re-think the process.

3. Set small goals.

This gives you a chance to celebrate as you go along instead of waiting for one huge graduation day to put on your cap and gown.

Thinking big might work if “big” was actually available to us. What is available to us is the present opportunity, how well we enjoy it, and how well we execute it.

The best way to overcome disappointment is to refuse to light the fire that sets it in motion–and that fire is easy to recognize: it’s when we begin to believe that things should be different.

Once you convince yourself of that, your faith begins to seep away, God seems a myth and the people you meet are just waiting to prove that they’re jerks.

1. I’m not very spiritual, but I want to be.

2. I want to shed tears for something other than my disappointments.

3. I need to get what I want without hurting anyone else.

4. I desire to be hungry for life and thirsty for God all at the same time.

5. I yearn to be merciful because I need mercy.

Cousins6.  I will work to have an honest heart filled with the hope of the divine.

7. I am looking for reasons to get along with people.

8. I am no longer afraid of being criticized for standing up for what I believe is right.

9. I know some people will love me, and some won’t.

10. I will rejoice because there is nothing that can rob me of my soul.
