My bougeinvilla

People Are Often Unreasonable

People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may just never be enough;
Give the world the best you have anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it's all between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.

-Kent Keith-

Hello Waliz, this your latest posting is beautiful. And I love bourgainvilleas too. Its beautiful. Reading your this post brings to mind one of my favourite sayings. Here it is, for you.
People come into your life for a REASON, a SEASON, or a LIFETIME. When you figure out which it is, you know exactly what to do.

When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed outwardly or inwardly. They have come to assist you through difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually. They are there for the reason you need them to be.
Then without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring this relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up or out and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled; their work is done, and it is now time to move on.

When people come into your life for a SEASON, it is because your turn has come to share, grow, or learn. They may bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it! It is real! But, only for a season.

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons; those things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. You job is to accept the lesson, love the person and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.

You have a nice evening, Waliz. Best regards, Lee.

nice post waliz, sometimes i believe we need to be selfish, may sound harsh, but yeah, in order to survive with all the cruelty that exist in this world......but i believe in practising random kindness to all,nevertheless, coz what you give, is what you get..... ;D

waliz said...

as usual u will give a BIG surprise U.lee...wth your beautiful sayings and i truly love this one...

i understand wht you say is so true..sometimes u need all 3...of them..u need someone for REASON, SEASON and LIFETIME.

if a person comes for a reason and builds the trust in us and whn he/she decides to leave tht can be very hard to take...

u also need people for seasons esp when u down and when u need smbody to cheer u up! and give u confidence...

lifetime is wth someone u have to live wth forever.esp wth our culture...

your comment means a lot to me, reminds me how true is blind.

waliz said...

exactly azra...wht u give is wht u get...but i believe tht u have to be selfish in ths world if not u become a loser...:D

Akmal said...

I read, scrutinized, analyzed and reflected. This one represents all soul in the world. This is not about being selfish, but about living life to the fullest, do our part to contribute to the world, and finally be contented with whoever we are because what we do, what we get, what we are, that is our own choice. In the end of the day, what we have is no regret.
People around us, comes in many kind. Like it or not, more or less, we'll somehow get involved with them, absorbed. Be just who we are what matters the most.
Have a nice evening

waliz said...

Dear Akmal,
wht u said is very true...but as far as i'm concern i dont care wht the people around me say..if it is good and i feel it is right i go ahead wth it..hmm

it doesnt bother me if people like it or long as my conscience is clear..its tough to be weak in ths world..

u have a nice evening too..and good luck for your exam tomorrow..!

Rolando said...

That's what I say Waliz, forget them all! No one needs false friends or anyone with bad intentions. Do what you have to do, lol.

waliz said...

Oh no Ro...dont ask me to forget u..i cant do tht...hahahaha! yeah..thanks for the advice...actually i got a long list of blacklisted so called 'friends'!

Sweetiepie said...

this is so true..!good post..:)i like this --If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
just be ourself..right!

Sweetiepie said...

this is so true..!good post..:)i like this --If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
just be ourself..right!

Rolando said...

You should 'block' those so called friends too, lol.

So long as you are aware that they around, then you can guard yourself against them somehow :)

WoW said...

I contemplated a long time after reading your post. It is very true in very sense esp the more successful a person is, the more false friends he has and more jealousy from his peers, counterparts or competitors. It happens naturally as it happens everywhere.

So long we are not committing serious mistakes and offenses and be able to responsible for our own acts, i think that would be suffice. hahaaha this is just my opinion.

U.Lee said...

Hello Waliz, nothing much on TV, so come for coffee, ha ha. Can I add my 45 cents worth here? Ha ha. The subject of love always facinates me.
I believe love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking together in the same direction.
What lies behind you and what lies infront of you, pales in comparison to what lies inside of you.
A woman may be beautiful, a man handsome, but if his or her heart is cold, no warmth, no sincerity, artificial in many aspects, and both thinking they are God's gift to whoever, then its time to slam on your brakes, handbrake too and do a quick U turn.
Waliz, I have been burned, cut up, I have cried, I have been betrayed, I have been made a fool of by women who only looking for a distraction in their yawwnny life, you name it...I now say to you, never let looks distract you....always look inside the person, you cannot go wrong, a good heart can never go wrong.
I have just posted a story re a good heart. You have a nice day, Waliz. Best regards, UL.

Waliz, this is a very nice post! You got everybody thinking...even me! That's quite an accomplishment!
Seriously, there is a lot of wisdom in those words that can be resumed in two: be yourself!
Who cares what the others are thinking. :-)

bluedreamer27 said...

wow the post have great message

you know>>. for me "we are not living to please other people"
because if we do that we must keep that standard to the rest of ourlives
"we are what we are" give your best shot and make your ultimate 101% to all your works
but never think that you are making it because you want them to want you
you are doing things for you,your family,friends and God
the best thing is the simple you
so no matter how reasonable the people are
IGNORE them.....LOVE them still instead of hating them.....THANKS them for their unreasonable deeds because through that you became much stronger person......and PRAY for them
have a nice day

mr viruz said...

wow that was a realy nice poem i like it, actually as i was reading it i realize that its true

Dann said...

hey waliz dear,,
sorry for the inconvenience.. I apologise for that. If it didn't work now then give me a big punnch....:) ..hehehe..

mimi said...

nice post waliz! it really makes me think...

Do not set your goals by what other people deem important. Only you know what is best for you :)

And dont be afraid to encounter risks. It is by taking chances that we learn how to be brave.

mimi said...

oowh reminds me of diz story

A little bird was flying south for the winter . It was so cold, the bird
froze and fell to the ground into a large field . While he was lying
there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on him . As the frozen bird lay
there in the pile of cow dung, he began to realize how warm he was .
The dung was actually thawing him out! He laid there all warm and happy,
and soon began to sing for joy . A passing cat heard the bird Singing and
came to investigate . Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird
under the pile of cow dung . He promptly dug him out and ate him .

(a) Not everyone who shits on you is your enemy .
(b) Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend .
(c) And when you’re in deep shit, it’s best to keep your mouth shut!
