You will find a new level of peace when you come to terms with the fact that nobody owes you anything
Actress Damilola Adegbite said that people will find a new level of peace when they come to terms with the fact that nobody owes them anything.
According to the Tinsel star, we all want different things in life and very rarely, do people completely put other people’s needs before theirs.
This is the gospel according to Damilola Adegbite:
“You will find a new level of peace when you come to terms with the fact that nobody owes you anything.
We all want different things in life and very rarely, do we completely put other people’s needs before ours.
We must learn to live our lives not expecting much from anybody, no matter how much we have given. It sounds impossible, I know.
We are human and betrayal in whatever form hurts. But I’m continuing to learn that you heal and move on faster, and strangely, discover your hidden strengths, when you accept that we are human.
We must understand that there is no perfect person anywhere. Sometimes we put pressure on one another expecting so much from our bosses, partners, friends, children.
Acknowledge and respect that we are ALL flawed. Prepare for the worst but strive for the best in all relationships. Then and only then can we enjoy inner tranquility.”
For me, I have discovered a long time ago that no one owes me anything in life and that everything I have received from people…money, gifts, referrals, compliments, connection, companionship and friendship are gifts.
Living my life this way prevents me from feeling entitled to other people’s time, money and affection. It keeps me focused on myself. I trim my expectations from other people.
No one owes you anything. Understanding this can protect you from getting hurt when other people don’t meet your needs or fulfill certain expectations.
Nobody owes you anything, life is what you make it. You shouldn’t go through life getting angry that people don’t meet your needs, that’s unhealthy. They might have their own challenges too that you know nothing about except they open up to you.
Nobody owes you anything meaning you have to figure out life on your own and tryst yourself and your capabilities. Does this mean you don’t need other people’s help to achieve your life’s goals? No.
What it means is that you don’t feel entitled to other people’s time, money and efforts. If they help you, fine. If they don’t help you, it’s still fine. Living life like this is more peaceful and intentional.
The focus of no one owes you anything in life quotes should be on you doing your best at life without holding grudges against people who didn’t come through for you.
No one owes you an explanation on what they do for you. Whatever you receive from other people are gifts. They might be going through a rough time too. You shouldn’t hold it against them. Live free!
