Save what inspires you
Human beings are always moving towards growth, either positive or negative (backward growth).
If we do not provide constant nourishment to our body and mind, we will become stagnant, stale and in danger of withering away.
Staying inside our comfort zones keeps us from having regular transformative experiences. More than logic or reason, emotions are what invokes transformation in humans.
Emotions are tied to memory, which is fluid and is affected by deep, intense emotions.
“A person’s success in life can usually be measured by the number of uncomfortable conversations he or she is willing to have.”
Our identity is changing according to our behaviour and life experiences. We are the designers of our personality and can mould it according to our desires.
Just as a garden can be either made more beautiful or ugly, we can make our identity more polished or refined, and can also make it entangled and confused.
We don’t know how powerful or capable we are, as most of our abilities remain dormant.
We don’t push ourselves to attain the seemingly impossible due to the internal limitations and mindsets about what we can and cannot do. Our identity and personality can change based on a demanding situation, internal or external.
Contrary to popular belief, inspiration does not necessarily lead to creativity.
Creating things (action) leads to inspiration, which then generates a greater desire to create more. Acting out one’s creativity is how we become really creative.

When we get rejected, our brains register an emotional chemical response so strong, it can physically hurt.
We go through almost the same stages as if we were grieving (self-blame, trying to win back our rejecter because we hate being disliked, and feeling like a failure). These feelings are healthy and normal, so long as you don’t end up dwelling on them.
Rejection is personal, and it’s easy to start questioning your self-worth when someone makes it clear they don’t like you.
But for the most part, being disliked is a matter of mutual compatibility. Keep in mind that likability has a lot to do with what you bring to someone else’s table, whether or not you realize it.
