I do not want to label people, because i might sound rude and give a lot of negative about them instead of telling each type. i am that kind of person, before. i gave an ish (ish meaning something that comes out after eating a lot) about anyone. i always have something to say of all the people i met. Whether one girl was just introduced to me, i always have something on my mind :Why is her hair like that? (As if i have the perfect hair)
But today, i learned something new today from Bro Bo Sanchez . The Four Kinds of People . That we should determine our own self, instead of identifying others. This is not about physical type, like some are thin, some are fat, etc.
- Go Persons – These are the life of a party. Who always have something to give, share, they have many things to give so the tendency is to give and give until all of them were gone and they feel empty. There should be balance. It is better to give than to receive, but sometimes, some people have nothing left to them and then people start complaining. (Hugot!) You pour then you run out. There is no more balance. “Without Balance, Passion will not last. “Then with no balance, you will become more stressed, sickness will come, sin perhaps may add because you think you give more. Bro Bo gave an assignment, to write on a piece of paper The People who Nourish You and People who are Toxic to You. (You may want to read this article, 8 types of Toxic People to Avoid! I’m sure all of you can relate. Oh number 1 is blank. I should start unfriending this. This will not help me nourish (wink) http://www.entrepreneur.com/article/246016
- No Persons – There is only one answer to everything. No! As quoted on one of my fave movie Enchanted : Giselle (Amy Adams) ask Robert (starred by my fave Mcdreamy Patrick Dempsey) : Is that the only word that you know? “No?” These are self-centered people. Unlike the Go Person, they always have something to give, but the No Person fear of losing something, they will not give any. Not even a drop. Just like Bro Bo’s example of the glass full of water. Do you think without giving any water the water will still be there forever (may forever?) No! The blessings you had is temporary and they do evaporate after a period of time and can be withdrawn depending upon our actions.
- The Flow Persons – the broken, the desperate, give it all! These people have a glass with cracks. The experience they have tend to neglect what are the more important to them. They continue to waste the water they have since they knew where to get the source. They knew someone was there to support them, they forgot to help themselves.
- The Overflow Persons – These people have a lot to give, The blessings are overflowing that’s why it okay if nothing is left to them, the blessings keep on coming. Because they knew how to balance their life, if at first they are a Go Person or a Flow Person who have been hurt, but because of that experienced, the used that experienced to give light to themselves and bless others, that’s why blessings keep coming back. Like a Boomerang, you are all out but it keeps on coming! We all hoped one day we’ll be like the Overflow people. Who will not feel empty? Will not say No to all , No fear, no Buts, No What ifs. Become like them who will from Flow persons, will learn to heal, to forgive. Today i learned the difference between forgiveness and mercy. When we Forgive, like Jesus, no more repetition of the past. I forgive you, but do not mixed what has been done before. Mercy on the other hand is a compassion or forgiveness shown toward someone whom it is within one’s power to punish or harm.
As Pope Francis said,
“God forgives all,God understand us, even in our limits, and understands us even in our contradictions.”
“With his love he tells us that when we recognize our sins he is yet closer to us and spurs us to look ahead,” said the pontiff. “When we recognize our sins and we ask forgiveness there is a party in Heaven. Jesus throws a party! This is his mercy: Do not be discouraged.”
“ ‘I cannot come to forgive,’” “But how can you ask God to forgive us, if we are not capable of forgiveness?”
Forgiving is a big thing, sure,” “However, if we open ourselves to welcome the mercy of God for us, at our turn we become more capable of forgiveness.”
