If they’re not listening step away – Monday Motivation

If someone is refusing to listen you can’t open their ears.

If they’re set on shutting down you can’t get them to open up.

Walk away and free yourself of that burden. It’s not for you to wake everyone who refuses to be woken up. You can’t and you’ll kill yourself trying.

Close the door and let them lie.

Learn to stand on your own feet – Monday Motivation

It’s not that all humans are terrible. But they’re fallible. 

If a key aspect of your life relies on someone else perhaps it’s time to learn how to do it too. The finances, the DIY, anything.

Partly because you owe it to yourself to be able to take care of your own needs. And partly because if anything were to happen to that person you’d be left incapable.
