Lessons from Oprah

  1. Don’t block your blessings.”
  2. We are responsible for our own lives. It doesn’t matter what your mama did. It doesn’t matter what your dad did
  3. All the efforts that go into hurting others, hurts you too. Forgive and move on. Unforgiveness drains you.
  4. Always listen to your inner voice. When something doesn’t feel right, and you get that sense — that “whisper”– be sure to listen to it. Whether it be a feeling about someone lying to you, or a sense that you are not on the path that you need to be on, Oprah encouraged all of us to trust the wisdom within ourselves.
  5. All pain is the same. We all have our issues, they may be different but at the end of the day, all pain is the same.
  6. Watching you be yourself makes me want to be more of myself.”
  7. The Imago Theory. You draw people into your life to either heal or re-enact old wounds. It’s why we marry men just like our fathers or act like our mothers.
  8. When people show you who they are, believe them. No point in hoping people will change. Believe them when they show you who they are.
  9. Teach people how to treat you. People do what they can get away with. If you allow people to walk all over you, they will walk all over you. Its ok to stand up for yourself.
  10.  Respect yourself. Love and respect yourself and others will respond by respecting you as well.
