[b]Dont complicate things if they dont need to We sometime complicate life by allowing other people to complicate it :[/b] When a person judge you ,,, dont worry his judgement is coming back If you dont like something .. Say say it , never let anyone tell you otherwise Have a question ..could be about here/there , "Ask" dont let anyone stop you . Wanna be understood .. Always explain , and not be trouble by others Do not ... just follow blindly r chase others because the right people will stay . Dont spend you life impressing others , but impress yourself . If you miss someone just call them You love someone just tell them Have a good day , be yourself with no apologies

I think that it is very common for people to complicate their lives and that is something that we should try to avoid. However, we are brought up in such a way that we should always make sure that we aren't hurting someone else's feelings. We should feel free to be ourselves, but society has made the world in such a way that we always feel like there is something about our lives in which we have to apologize in our lives.

We sometime afraid to hurt ourselves but we still do in the long run . For example , we afraid to say I love you , someone else come along and tell the person we love we end up hurting more . you know ! You are so right , society play the biggest role in how we react to most situation . Want us to be a certain way are else .

What a wonderful thought! Being ourselves is the best thing to do. We should not try to please everybody because that would be an impossible thing. Have a nice day!

Agree its impossible to please everybody . We would be happier if we let people know how we feel , at least the ones who play some sort of role in our life . Have a nice day also

Good advice. And do not expect people to read your mind, or expect someone else to deliver your messages. Your friends, loved ones, and even enemies, have no idea what is on your mind unless you tell them.

Those are very good points too . No one can read mind but yet we dont tell people what we think but expect them to know the answer . If we dont tell some people how we feel , we might later regret it .

Yeah there are a lot of things that we can feel makes life complicated. You brought out some good points. If we think about these things and try to do them in our life we can feel better and not have to feel stressed. It is a good thing that we stick up for ourselves and how we feel.

Happy my points were reached . I agree we would have less stress , if we dont carry around somethings like those . Standing up for ourselves is better than beating up ourselves later if life saying ,I should have done this , that .

Yeah beating up ourselves later would not benefit us at all. It would only make us feel down harded about something that we can not change. It is sad that at times we do make mistakes.But we have to learn to live with them and move on with our life.

Yes learning from our mistake is the right way and then move on with life . We can never change something that already happen in the pass, but we can learn and prepare for the future .

I love what you posted Silverfox09. I agree with you that sometime we complicate our own life, everything would have been so much easier when we don't complicate things. I used to be in that way before but then after my accident everything changed a lot especially the way I think about this life and I feel that my life becomes easier. I believe that whatever happens in my life is for a reason and everything suits me. I used to be angry when someone judge me or my life but then I realize it happens for a reason. When someone judge me or treat me badly, it's for me to learn not to treat the other in bad way and as you said the judgement will coming back to those who judge us. When I was at high school my friends judged and mocked me, but then after years I figured out that my life has improved a lot while they are still stuck at the same old life. If we don't like something it is better to say it instead of pretending that we like it and fool our self. Don't spend our life to impress other because we know that we cannot please or impress everyone, but if we impress ourself we don't care whether other like it or not as long as we are happy and be ourself. But hey I cannot do the last part "If you miss someone just call them and if you love someone just tell them have a good day" I still do not have the courage to do that...hehehe.

Exactly we sometimes complicate our own life with simple things pile together . Yes when people judge us and feels it will always be that way . Its like the Swift song all the gonna be is "mean" . We grow but they will never because they are stuck in that mood . Yup its better to let people know how we feel , instead of trying to go along with the crowd . I think you will have the courage to those one day lol

Having courage is not my strongest trait, but I'm willing to learn to be a brave person. Dare to try and nothing to lose, right?

That is something I had to learn also , especially when it is admitting your love for someone .

Hi silverfox Loved reading this great inspirational post And I have learned to live with almost every word here. And to be honest, the results have been - more of peace, more of satisfaction, more of happiness and more of pleasantries. I have also felt that the biggest flaw in us humans is that we love to complicate things for us - maybe the ego and pride - and we do not also find time to say the simplest words which can express love, gratitude which really help us become what we are born to be.

Thank you I agree even I sometime complicate my own life . As you say it make you more at peace and whenever I relax and just think more about me and not what others have to say , I am more happy . Yes sometimes we put off important things like "I love you" , " I miss you" . We may have friends and family that we are mad at and we miss them but our pride get in the way of just calling to tell them how we feel . Have a good day @ Thesids

That is an abosolutely beautiful discussion. That is something that I often do I let people complicate things for me. All the things you mention are very simple. But is life really that simple? I think I already know the answer to that which is yes. Even though life is really that simple we complicate things. Add stuff that doesn't need to be added. Life is complicated enough full of ups and downs. But life can also be beautiful if you let. Thank you for this discussion have a great day.

I agree with you. it is often why people are unhappy - that is if they let their lives become so complicated with whatever it was that people throw at you. Sometimes when we choose to be reactive, that is when our lives get too complicated. we feel sad, we feel angry (at times at someone, or something)... well if we let things be... then we would always be happier.

I think so , people are unhappy because they stop living for themselves and living for the world. If they are angry just state why instead of keeping it inside . We only have one life and we cant let others dictate how we spend it .

Hi friend, you are right. We must live our life in our own way and don't worry a lot about other persons thoughts and attitudes, if we start to live our life for other persons, and wish to impress each and every one, it is really a tedious task. So we must avoid this kind of activities and live our life as per our wish
• United States

Yes when we start living for other people that is when we lose control of the gift we have , the present should never be wasted . Whatever we have to say we should never be afraid to say it . We cant help what others think , but we can control our action .

I totally agree with you silver and I think I need to start realizing that myself to be myself more. Stop letting people and things stand in my way or saying what I think and stop trying to get people to like me and just enjoy being myself and if people don't like me then oh well. I like what you have posted and you have encouraged me to be more like myself. Thanks
