But what if those people whom you have offered to help are those who are apparently undeserving of your help? What if their pleas for sympathy from you are merely their gateways to taking advantage of you? This is where you will realize how essential it is for you to limit yourself in life.
It may be puzzling for some of you to learn that you have to limit yourself even when doing good deeds. But when you do so, you will find that you are constantly safe from unnecessary dangers and perils that you have to put yourself into just because you have done something good for someone.
While some people get indebted towards your sincerity in helping them and wish that they could repay you with a handsome reward, others would just walk away from you once they have squandered something from you, or worse still, put you into hot soup out of nowhere.
As someone who is always keen in being there for others, you would not ask for anything in return for sure. But just envisage how it feels like when you have poured milk for someone, and yet that someone gives you poison in return.
So one thing you should always bear in mind is that it is perfectly great to do all the good things in life, but do not submit yourself to people’s tears and pleas too easily either. Do not forget to think about your safety and well-being while helping others in their times of need.
Simply said, limit yourself.
Limiting yourself is also something you should apply to your life every time you go out there to enjoy life with others. It is never wrong to enjoy yourself with the company of your family members and friends. You can always go partying and dancing the night away. But a word of caution!
You should always remember not to go beyond the limits. Whether you believe it or not, too much of enjoyment, even for just a night, can change your lives forever, negatively.
Imagine yourself in a pub dancing to those upbeat songs that put you in a trance, and then without realizing, someone pours drugs into your drink. You drink it, and there goes your entire life! Your body is filled with drugs, and you may see yourself as a resident drug addict for life.
So before it is too late to say sorry, be safe. Limit yourself while having fun!
What about the occasional heated arguments between you and someone else? Don’t you think you should keep yourself at optimum level as well?
It is fine to emit your frustrations, as it will not do you any good if you bottle them up inside your heart. Still, you should not make the burning fire get too big. What would become of you if you end up throwing tantrums, banging and throwing items, and uttering those harsh words? And what would happen to those who are affected by your raging anger?
Would you want to see your loved ones and friends get hurt physically and emotionally as a result of your anger that is beyond control? So in such situations, you should also remember to limit yourself. Learn more about anger management.
That is how you can limit the anger in you.
So in every aspect of your life, limitations should always be observed. In that way, you can keep yourself in good shape, and still make others around you happy. It is indeed the philosophy of life that should be taken seriously.
Talking about limitations of life has surely reminded us of a meme that two of our lovely friends, Marzie and Jesse, have tagged us on.
Here is the trivia question that they have asked us:
What are the 5 gifts you would buy for yourself this Christmas, if you had unlimited income?
To us, the question sounds more like what we would indulge ourselves into if we were to have unlimited income at any point in time. Nevertheless, here are the five items we would pamper ourselves with:
1. Trips or getaways to the most exotic countries in the world, particularly Mauritius.
2. Issey Miyake and Anna Sui perfumes. For the NAFA girls of course!
3. Home theatre sets so that we need not travel all the way to the cinema just to catch our favorite movies.
4. A beautiful house for the NAFA team to stay in and hang out together.
5. More chocolates, nougats, and ice creams. We cannot live without them!
But frankly, if we were to have unlimited income, we would be glad to send our donations to all the charitable organizations out there, and also, purchase the best presents for our beloved blogging friends here. Hope that day would come!
What about you? Yes, all of you whom we are tagging to answer this question. We would love to hear from you!
