“Someone’s strength is someone’s weakness”
My values define who I am. They are my strengths, they are my weaknesses. Choosing to stick to them means I will have to accept some challenges in order to keep me from losing myself. Challenges are like battles, I take on them with the fighter spirit, I fight with myself, for the better version of myself in the future.
Life will give you some hard candies, want it or not it's not your choice but the choice to give them all back or to chew them all in. The moment you know you have values is truly meaningful, the moment to can identify exactly what they are is the most beautiful day of your life. You will finally find your principles, understand the simple fact that you are who you are. No one can define you, but you.
So what does it mean when I say "My values are who I am"? They are the characteristics, personalities, principles, or qualities what I choose to have, or that I wish to have, what I seek for in life, what I find important and what I am interested in, also what I am passionate about.
My values are:
- Communication and Understanding
- Good Life Qualities
- Career path
- Emotional Wellbeing
- Emotional Intelligence
- Emotional Communication
- Arts & Entertainment
- Life Photography
No orders to it as a list, also, the list goes on…
Values are important to a person. Having values gives them personalities, keeps on track of being a decent and functional human being. For me, my values are like principals I can not go against because that will fuck me up. They also keep me aware of the hard times I will have to face ahead, struggles I will have to overcome, in order to grow and achieve my goals set out in the future.
Challenges can result me in failures, pains, and struggles instead of success and celebration. Challenges are like battles, you fight for yourself, protecting the goods from the bads in you. When you are in war, you win or you lose, so if I will lose myself in the battle I throw myself into only because I do not carefully approach and fight without consideration, clear mindset of a win-win situation, without compromises, fairness, and honesty. However, the harder things might turn into, the more lessons you will learn and realize about yourself. Maybe there are some elements to your core principals, the values you never realized you had had before.
Losing battle costs me the price of finding back what who I am: the values I sacrificed for all the bullshits I put up with while taking on the challenges wrong ways.
But remember, all these battles here are with myself I am my own enemy. This battle is between the yesterday me and the today me for a future you: to be good, smart and kind, to gain more wisdom to live a better life, to have a better decisions making mindset after all, maybe to have a better job, to love yourself more, to find this life worth living good. You and I deserve to be better.
I had a lot of failures, but then again, too many to mention. I am not afraid of it either even though there were a lot of regrets... I learned my lessons, accepted my wrongdoings, I moved on. The goals and loves of people who believe in me carry me on.
I have flaws, therefore I exist.
I don’t let my flaws and failures definite me. I am the product of self-taught through weaknesses, difficulty, failures, and adversity, through ups and downs, through goods and bads. I know what I don’t know and I respect everyone as I can learn something meaningful from anyone. I am driven, I never I stop at what I think is good enough or people feel it's good enough. I never stop at learning what I might not know and I will be forever curious to discover what I want to know. The limit is the sky.
I love challenges. Challenges are there to make sure I don’t lose any of my values above as a person and to help me grow better each day goes by. Even if it means I have to compromise my creativity to be more organized, I will still do. I make sure it strengthens me on both sides.
In the end, either I overcome or not each battle I fight, I discover new perspectives about myself and others, to re-evaluate things on the list. It means I will have to accept of losing some, but I know I will gain some, I will strengthen some also in order to let go of the wrong beliefs.
Perfection, I am nowhere near that place. Staying up late, waking up just as late is who I am. I’m disorganized in my personal life at certain things, I get lost easily in my thoughts that I forget to do certain chores, even the surroundings I am not aware of when I am in my think-tank. But it doesn’t mean I'm so bad to be true. I aware of my flaws and I'm learning to fix my errors. I wish to do great things in life, make impactful achievement to society, I want the world to be meaningful to live in.
To achieve greatness, it's a long way to go for me. As long as I always remember to stick to my values; stay humble, challenging myself with self-reflection, integrity, and self-awareness, sooner or later, I will get there, I can do it.
Achievements take both laughters and tears.
