Sometimes our thoughts can be deceiving. When we pay attention to our thoughts at all times, we will know which ones to believe and which ones to ignore. Our thoughts create our future.
When you know in your heart that you’ve said something or done something to hurt someone unintentionally (or intentionally for that matter), you should apologize. Sometimes, we will even turn it around and place blame on the other person just so that we can justify our behavior. Don’t let your ego get in the way. Simply and sincerely say you’re sorry. Nine times out of ten, that’s all the other person really wants to hear.
Whenever you are aware of self-criticism, here are some positive affirmations to repeat that will bring you back to who you really are. The list is endless, but of course, I had to stop somewhere. At the beginning of each statement, always use these two significant words: “I am.” And remember, God made you perfect.
There is a difference between loyalty and trust. You can be loyal without being trustworthy.
Loyalty can be termed as devotion of a person to a cause, an organization, country, or another person. A person can be loyal to someone or something, whether it’s right or wrong. Loyalty implies sticking with someone or something, even if it goes against your own self-interest. Loyalty is considered as an obligation or duty.
A trustworthy person is someone who you can rely on as being honest or truthful. You can confide in that person to do the right thing, even when no one is watching. Trustworthiness is a step higher than loyalty, because it is being loyal and righteous at the same time.
Being loyal is easier than being trustworthy.
