You can’t always be there for children. The truth is that most of the time, you’re not.
This quote actually came from a letter to the editor of a newspaper in the UK. The letter writer goes on to say, “I’m one of those ‘children’ who is always there for them. When I was a young boy I had a lot of friends, but very few real friends. I was always there for them and was constantly trying to be the best friend any of them could ever have. I used to pretend I was a child myself.
We all make mistakes. We all fall in love with people that we shouldn’t. We all have times when we’re a bit of a bit of a maverick. We all make mistakes. We all have real bad habits we need to let go of and change. We all have bad days and we all have good days. There are good days and bad days.
The point is that we all have bad days. The best thing we can do about it is to learn from our own mistakes and to be aware of our own bad habits so that we can stop them.
I don’t think we’ve all been to the point where we can truly say that’s the best thing we can do about it but I think that for the most part most of us are aware of our bad habits and we know we need to make them stop. We don’t need to do anything about it but we do need to be aware of it.
So, how do we do that? For me, the most effective self awareness came from my own bad habit of spending too much money on stuff that I never use. I know that I have a long way to go before I can take my life in my hands and stop spending money that I dont actually need. That said, I know that I can make myself stop, because I know what I have been doing is not working.
I was talking to a friend of mine yesterday who was having trouble with her credit report. She said that it takes 24-48 hours for the credit reports to completely clear. For her, she was having to wait a week or so for it to clear. We had the conversation about this because many times we see ourselves doing things that we are really not doing, so we have to realize that we are not doing things that are working.
We’ve all been there. We had to take out our mortgage, take out our credit cards, and then wait a week or so. For some, it was the best thing that ever happened to them. For other people, it was the worst thing that ever happened to them. For some, it was a complete disaster, and for some they had lost their house, and had to move to a new city.
There are many things that can go wrong when you buy or build a house, and that includes, but is not limited to: (a) you might not have the funds to get the job done right the first time. (b) you might not be able to get the job done right the first time. (c) you might not even be able to get the job done right the first time. We can all be guilty of (b).
