Day 6: What Is Your Favorite Quote. (Explain.)

How is one supposed to pick just one quote? I think if you are moving forward in life that the quote that prevails most should change depending on the situation and/or stage in life that you are in. One that I’ve been thinking about lately to keep me encouraged actually comes from TV - namely, the 11th Doctor.

"The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice versa, the bad things don’t always spoil the good things and make them unimportant."

It helps me to also remember a biblical quote from 1 Thessalonians 5:18 - “give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus." (NIV)

Every situation, good or bad, can be a learning experience. Therefore, be thankful and know that something good is always to be found nearby. It may even be closer than you think.

Seriously, have the decency to tell them why, or at least that you can’t talk to them for now and will explain later.
This is exactly why I can’t get myself emotionally in check. I haven’t been the perky friend everyone expects/wants me to be. I want to be like I was too. However, I’ve gone through several spells in life where I felt really down for a few months and came through. It looks like this will be one of those times.

Right now on the inside I feel like a mix between

this:

and this:

While on the outside I’m a bit like this:
 

This is what happens when you get stuck dwelling on things you’re trying to ignore. Stupid people. By “people” I mean myself and the person who’s making me feel like this. Seriously, this sucks. Being ignored sucks. Friendships ending sucks. Especially when you’re part of the same groups of friends that easily consists of at least 100 people. C’mon dude, why don’t you wanna settle this beef?

Lately, I’ve been facing some serious regrets. One was something I did to a friend of mine not too long ago, and the other has to do with something I should have pursued years ago and didn’t. Unfortunately the one person I feel I can talk to who would understand is the same friend that I acted regretfully towards. I used to feel like regret was just a bad feeling that I wasn’t supposed to have, but I’m beginning to realize that the reason we feel regret is to learn from past mistakes. Until the lesson is fully learned and applied, we will still feel it. The real question is what to do next.
The photo is one of my mementos from when I was inches away from pursuing what I should have at least tried. Both of these regrets came from the fact that I looked to myself first and didn’t even let God get a word in. Hopefully I’ve fully learned my lesson, because I feel like I have. Now I just need to apply what I’ve learned to deal with my past actions and make better choices in the future.
