Tough Love


Tough Love is a different kind of love that we must all embrace at some point in our lives.  It expresses a genuine concern for us individually, rather we have to receive it or rather we have to give it.  This love shapes and molds us to become better individuals.  We began to view life itself and all that it consists of, from a different perspective, when we meet Tough Love.  This change in our mindsets leads us to prioritize and focus on becoming more appreciative of life and people.  Tough Love allows us to stop taking life and people for granted.  It allows us to become responsible and productive individuals that can contribute back to those who have instilled and invested in our lives.

Tough Love can be given or received!  We need to learn how to receive it so that we can reciprocate it when it is time to give it.  Tough Love doesn’t only deal with the issues between a parent and a child because it is typical of many adults and must be applied to them as well.  Don’t become closed minded and just apply Tough Love to those who you have deemed to need it.  Individually, we are not exclusive or overlooked, because Tough Loves applies to each of us.  We need to embrace it when it arrives in our lives so that we can become better and not bitter!  Tough Love, tells us, that we will no longer live under the assumption, that we have entitlements that are to be handed to us, without us having to work to earn them.  Tough Love becomes all inclusive when we take the self-examination and realize that we are sometimes the ones who needs to receive it the most.

Tough Love addresses anyone that needs to be given their wings to fly so that they can be released from their acclimated nest.  Yes, we do need to be released from our own nests too!  What does a nest look like?  A nest is any situation in which we enable ourselves or others from becoming responsible for the actions that we have chosen to make and take in our lives.  We have held our hands and the hands of others for so long that we can’t recognize that release season has arrived!  We have to become keen in recognizing the season so that we will be released from the nest at the exact timing!

Tough Love affords an opportunity to allow us as well as others to be released into our destinies!  We learn to solely become disabled from the nest so that self-sufficiency and independence can take root!  Once, this happens, we are now embracing a state of mind maturity because we can identify with our lack of responsibilities and our downfalls.  Tough Love is not created to make life hard for us.  We must learn to receive it, to give it, and to apply it to our lives.  We will then reap the positive entitlements of Tough Love that we have so diligently planted and allowed to take root so that we can become entitled to the harvest that it has produced.  Tough Love is an extraordinary love that is needed at some point in our lives rather we need to receive it or rather we need to give it!

I believe in being able to be motivated through positive speaking and inspirational quotations. We only get a chance at life once and it is totally up to us to determine how uplifting and fulfilling it will be. I am a natural born motivator and encourager and it brings me much joy by making and seeing others happy by even the smallest act of kindness rather it be through actions, words, or simply a heart warming smile. Inspire Yourself will encourage one to do just that as opposed to waiting on others to do it. This is a great experience and my goal is to reach everyone without any limitations to help make a positive difference in the lives of others through my inspirational writings that comes from my God given gift to write it from my heart.

100 thoughts on “Tough Love”

  1. Our thoughts and ways are not God’s thoughts and ways. When we are consistently taken for granted, we must give our situations to God in prayer. We must trust in him to fight our battles and lean not on our own understandings. Stay prayerful and trust in only him. He will always see us through.

  2. Hey this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code
    with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding
    knowledge so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!

    Look into my weblog Insoles For Flat Feet

  5. I think that everything said was very reasonable. But, think about this, what if you
    were to create a killer post title? I ain’t saying your information is not solid.,
    but suppose you added a title that grabbed people’s attention? I
    mean Tough Love | Inspire Yourself is a little vanilla.
    You ought to look at Yahoo’s home page and see how they write news
    headlines to grab viewers interested. You might add a
    related video or a picture or two to get people interested about what you’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it might bring your posts a little livelier.

    this blog could certainly be one of the most beneficial in its field.
