Always beware of the person who has the warped mentality that people are “disposable”. You know by the little things they say along the way and how they move on to the next “victim” after having taken advantage of someone’s generosity. Be cautious and discerning, as human beings should never be viewed in the same context as trash – used and then discarded.
After having been dealt with wrongly or unfairly, it is so tempting within our human nature to respond likewise to our offender. However, taking the high road is a much honorable position as it demonstrates not only to yourself, but also to the other person that you will not descend to their level. Be cool, be calm, be assured that Nothing has ever happened that God did not see.
There is no good you do that will not return to you or your loved ones in some way. Oftentimes, the people you have helped will not be the ones you can ever say thank you to. Instead, someone you have done nothing for will be the vessel that returns with your blessing. Never stop doing good, even if those you are there for are not there for you.
If you have a passion for something, you may not always feel like doing it, but you can never stop doing it.
When you don’t complain about your own circumstances and difficulties although you may have every right to, it takes an inner strength most remarkable and admirable. What’s ultimately created is a barrier-breaking fortitude on the inside that will get you through any situation.

It is very difficult to continue doing the right thing when all the wrong things are happening. Every part of your being screams to forget – to just give up as nothing seems to be working. However, take heart that with every action, there is a reaction. Every good deed is a good seed planted into the soil of your life that will reap a great harvest when you least expect it. Keep doing good; continue pressing on and never give up. You have to go through it in order to get to it.
Your true friends are not the ones giving lip service to appease you when you’re feeling down. They’re the ones on the battlefield with you every step of the way: Praying for you, weeping when you’re discouraged, giving you a helping hand as they are able, keeping you near to their heart. Anyone can give ‘lip service’ and call himself a friend, but a true friend gets down on that dirty battlefield and fights alongside you. And when you’re too weak to go on, they keep fighting long after you’ve stopped.

No one is exempt from occasional discouragement or despair. It does not discriminate in the least. However, a firm, fixed belief that things are subject to change appeases the mind of the one who refuses to allow such negativity to latch onto them.
Well-meaning people are not difficult to recognize. Common sense dictates that if someone in your circle does not uplift you, it’s a good chance that they don’t mean you well or are even envious, and would rather pull you down. Pay attention to the signs and be very careful since ignoring the obvious may lead to regret.
