Profound words shared by Anthony Hopkins:

''Let go of people who aren't ready to love you yet.
This is the hardest thing you'll have to do in your life and it will also be the most important thing.
Stop giving your love to those who aren't ready to love or appreciate you yet.
Stop conversations with people who don't want to change.
Stop showing up for, and showing care for people who are indifferent to your presence; who display temperamental emotions; who show disrespect or block you out and keep you at bay, despite your best efforts.
Those people have narrow perspectives and small hearts.
I know your instincts attempt everything to win the good mercy of those around you, but it's also this impulse that will steal your time, energy and mental, physical and spiritual health.
When you start manifesting yourself in your life, completely, with joy, interest and commitment, not everyone will be ready to find you in this place of pure sincerity.
That doesn't mean that you have to change who you are; or play yourself down to suit the judgements projected onto you by those who do not care . It just means you have to stop bothering with people who don't want to love you yet.
When you are excluded, subtly offended, forgotten or easily ignored by people you give time to, you don't do yourself any favour by allowing them your energy and your life.
The truth is that you're not for everyone...
And that not everyone is for you...
That makes this world so special is, when you find the few people you have friendship, love or a true relationship with - you will know how valuable that is. Because you have experienced what isn't...
There are billions of people on this planet, and many of them will end up with you, on their level, with their vibration, from where they stand.
And many will love and care for you unconditionally.
But the smaller you stay, involved in the privacy of people who use you as background option, the more time you stay out of the community you deserve and which deserves you.
If you stop showing up, you might be less wanted...
If you stop trying, the relationship might stop...
If you stop texting, your phone may stay quiet because there will be no initiating from those you try to maintain closeness with.
Maybe if you stop showing love towards someone, the connection between you may dissolve...
That doesn't mean you ruined a relationship..
That means that all that this relationship had was the energy that ‘only you’ hire - to keep it in the air.
That is wanting to give a chance to those who don't want it...or who don’t value it, due to their own hidden agendas or disconnection from their core compassion.
The most valuable and most important thing you have in your life is your energy.
Its not just your time because it's limited...It's your energy.
What you give every day is what will become more and more in your life.
It's the ones you give time and energy (who respond to you in like fashion) that will define your existence.
When you realize this, you start to understand why you are become impatient when you spend your time with people who don't suit you, and in activities, places, situations which don't suit you.
You're starting to realize that the most important thing you can do for your life, for yourself and for everyone you know, is to protect your energy stronger than anything.
Turn your life into a safe sanctuary where only '' compatible '' people with you are allowed.
It's not your job to exist for people and give them your life, little by little, moment after moment.
Decide you deserve a true friendship.
Wait then... just a minute...and look how everything is starting to change..."

Excellent and rather timely advice.
I cut someone off recently because I felt strung along, and I'm glad I trusted my instincts instead of "waiting". People who want real relationships with you don't put you off.


Great advice.


Love is like a fart. No matter how much you smell it, it will either drift away suddenly, or it will linger and leave a stain.


Great words and Advice


I will enjoy that more than having fava beans and chianti.


I think I needed to hear that.

It is said you can't choose your family but you can choose your friends. I have experienced you can choose to back away from an unsupportive family and you can choose to make close, supportive friends your family!


Never known someone with dementia or autism obviously. Or children.


Good words but you also need to realize he thinks he can't "waste time" on an estranged daughter.....

Since no one knows the whole story, you don't know how much effort he has put in to that relationship. Not all relationships work out, not even parent to child. Sometimes you have to protect yourself and other children. I don't know enough about it to make any assumptions.

@HippieChick58 No, we never will. But he walked out on her and her mother when she was a toddler. He saw her about once a year. She's ok with it also. I'm just saying that sometimes someone may be extremely profound but we never know the whole story.


I want that narrated by Morgan Feeman.


Wow! Just wow! Thank you for that post.


What he is saying simply:
Kindness to those that deserve kindness, not indiscriminate love wasted on ingrates

I hate it when people make things overly complicated. Anton Levay was much more to the point.


Beautifully stated, I wish more people could embrace and understand this sentiment.🥰


In my opinion Anthony Hopkins and Morgan Freeman are two of the most outstanding actors in the field.
