When we Love ourselves we Refuse to Allow Others to Manage our Feelings From Afar - Unknown

It might be hard to really put this advice to work since our relationships often take control of us emotionally but you must realize You are the only one who can control your mind. Nobody else can do that for you, therefore it is your personal responsibility to keep your emotions under control. Don't give that power to Anyone else.

A good way to prevent this is : "Instead of being angry at the way we were treated, regardless of how horrible we have assessed it to be, we need to learn to view that treatment from another perspective. They did what they knew how to do, given the conditions of their lives. The rest of the stuff we carry around with us is ours. We own it all."

It's easier to take this road because by resisting bad feelings toward those who have hurt or disappointed us we are only hurting ourselves.

This sums it all up: "When we forgive another for anything that he or she may have done to us, we are really saying 'I no longer give you the power to control who I am, how I think, and how I will behave in the future."

It all comes down to personal power and knowing that it is all in your hands. This is in no way to excuse the bad behavior of those who have hurt us but it is a way to understand that by holding grudges we are ultimately only hurting ourselves.

The more you put a specific thought in your mind, the more attention&love you give it, the more you do to try and make it happen, the more obstacles will disappear. Obstacles are there to challenge us and in order to grow as a person we must go through these trials but the more prepared you are while going through them the easier it is to overcome them. Keep on! If it gets too tough lean on your family&friends for support&encouragement :)

 One of my favorite speakers. Even though it's hard for all of us to muster vulnerability it does seem essential to allowing closeness in relationships and really that's what life is all about.

Courage is being afraid and going on anyhow - Dan Rather

In order to grow we must take risks, and in order to take risks we must first overcome the fear that comes along with it. Allow yourself to over look your fears and encourage yourself to go on even after you've failed once or twice or many times. We learn by making mistakes but the key to it all is to Learn from those mistakes and make new changes. Get on your saddle <3
