You can't let anyone tell you what you can't do and take that to heart. No as a final answer when it's the first time you've asked is simply unacceptable. Don't be disrespectful about it...just politely move on to another option. Always have a plan B.
You can't let your past dictate your future no matter what. Even if you were raised with a silver spoon in your mouth, please know that the times we live in are volatile and that spoon can be snatched with the swiftness. You need to always be prepared for something out of the ordinary to pop off. If you've towed a long, hard road...that doesn't have to be the way your life has to continue to be. You can do anything with proper planning and putting in the work.
You can't SAY you're putting in the work but don't actually do the work. Doing the work is obvious. NOT doing the work is obvious too. Just as working out and eating healthier provides definitive results you can actually SEE...so are the results in other areas. You can talk a good game all you want...your results are telling the truth.
You can't spend more time doing NOTHING than you do doing SOMETHING if you want to lead a productive life of quality. You just can't. YOU SIMPLY CAN'T.
You can't ignore doing the laundry forever. It will never, ever, ever do itself.
You can't live life without any quiet time. Your brain needs to recharge and you need to be able to gauge how you're doing...YOURSELF.
You can't eat whatever you want to eat if you don't have a healthy outlook on food choices.
You can't get the job you WANT without doing a good job with the job you HAVE.
You can't move FORWARD without getting up and moving PERIOD.
You can't grow as a person without reading.
You can't be around negative people and remain positive about your outlook on life. LEAVE.THEM.ALONE!
You can't forget that people will look at you without knowing you and form their own opinion of you based on their personal baggage and experience. You can either fight this or you can learn to control the urge to fight and allow your actions to break down that barrier for THAT person.
You can't be someone you're not. You have to be true to yourself at all times. If you try to fake the funk you will eventually get sick and tired of it and snap.
You can't pretend your neighbors don't exist. They do...andy they are probably good people it would be nice to know.
You can't, you can't, you can't.
