I don’t know if many people do this or not, but I have the habit of leaving a list of quotes hanging around me at most times. Depending on what you’re going through in life, this can be a huge help to sit back and read that someone else has been there. When asked to do this top ten list I had a hard time coming up with anything… I think my top ten lists change on a very regular basis. But for right now here are the quotes that have sat with me for a little while, or at least one because apparently we’re doing this irritatingly one at a time!
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” ~Maya Angelou
I enjoy this quote because I think as a whole people tend to forget that. Most of the time people are so worried about themselves that they don’t take the time to think how they’re making the people they care about the most feel. And while it is always important to worry about how you feel or how you’re doing, sometimes it’s better to set you aside and worry about someone you care about instead. There have been a lot of times in my life where I’ve sat back and needed to reread this quote for the purpose of, if nothing else, remembering that the world doesn’t just revolve around how I feel and what I need. So I’ve had to reread this quote a few times, especially I when I feel cheated by my surroundings. I don’t know… it’s helped me!
