7 Things You Should Never Apologize For.

first_img Share 56 Views   no discussions Share LifestyleRelationships 7 Things You Should Never Apologize For. by: – July 22, 2011 By Laura Yarborough, BounceBackEditorial StaffIn relationships, we often question who we are, especially when faced with arguments and breakupsthat can often bring out the worst in people. Someone may have told you that you’re not a good person or that you have flaws in your personality, interests, or behaviors. But remember this: who is the person that knows you better than anyone else? Simple – it’s you. We were all made different and unique for a reason, so stop apologizing for yourself and embrace who you are.If you’re feeling down about just being yourself, here are 7 things you should acknowledge about yourself and commit to never apologizing for them: 1. Being truthful. Many people like to hear only positive things about themselves and their relationships, even if it means lying. Why accept the lies when nothing good comes out of it? Yes, the truth hurts, but being an honest person is what makes you the very best that you are. It shows the other person that you care enough about this relationship, whether it’s a friend or love interest, and that’s really what matters. So, stop sugarcoating everything just to make someone else happy. The reality is that they will be much happier knowing the truth, rather than living a lie.2. Having a good time. If you love to travel and you are always on the go, there’s nothing wrong with you. If you find yourself loving to dance to music as soon as you hear one of your favorite songs playing on the radio, then enjoy. Who does it hurt? No one. So if anybody makes you feel like the things that you enjoy are not worth it, then take a step back and realize that perhaps they’re not worth it.3. Being successful. We all want to strive for success in some way, so why feel bad about it when you do? It doesn’t mean that you are better than someone else, because everyone has their time to truly shine. Instead, be thankful that you are able to accomplish goals that you’ve set for yourself and hopefully that will help to encourage someone else to do better. If anyone feels that they are not happy for your success and tries to constantly break you down, then these are not people you should be around. Why not be happy? It’s a positive thing, so you shouldn’t stop succeeding to appease someone. Keep striving for excellence!4. Your Friends. The good thing about friends is that they all are different. So they all bring something different to the table, which makes for great conversation. Could you imagine if your friends were all alike? There wouldn’t be different opinions, everybody would agree on everything and everyone would be right. Overall, your relationship with your friends would be extremely dull. How much fun would that be? A real friend will tell you just how it is, no matter how it comes out, so you know they have you in their best interest. So why apologize for having a friendship? There is simply nothing like a good friend.5. The many things you like. So you like going shopping, you love clothes, you like to go out often and spend time with your friends, or maybe you just like keeping to yourself. What’s wrong with any of that? Life is all about enjoying the things you like as long as it’s not harmful to yourself or anyone else. So, don’t feel bad about not liking the same things that everyone else likes. It’s okay! We were made to have likes and dislikes, that’s what makes us unique and truly ourselves.6. Saying no. We often feel like we have to please everyone and simply saying “no” can be hard to do. It’s okay not to allow people to step all over you and to stand your ground at times. If you think saying “yes” is better, but actually feel like saying “no”, then do it. Always be true to yourself. There’s no need to apologize for feeling the way that you feel. Let’s be honest, there’s just certain times where you feel like saying “no.”7. Putting You First. After leaving a relationship where you sacrificed and compromised, the most rewarding thing to do is to prioritize what’s important to you. If you were in a meaningless relationship that was a dead end, you may have given so much of yourself that you can’t even recognize yourself anymore. So, allow yourself some time to concentrate on you. It’s not like you’re being selfish; you are just starting to realize what’s best for you. So don’t apologize for wanting the very best for yourself, because you do matter.center_img Sharing is caring! Tweet Sharelast_img read more

first_imghighlights For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. Khawaja who broke the shackles by clobbering two fours off Bumrah in the eighth over and a nicely flicked four to deep midwicket off Bhuvneshwar. The partnership grew and both batsmen tackled the spinners incredibly well. Handscomb, who is known to play spin well, tackled Kuldeep and Kedar Jadhav in a positive manner as the scoring rate remained consistent. hawaja reached his seventh fifty off 52 balls and Handscomb followed suit a couple of overs later. The partnership went past 100 and Australia were truly in the contest. Both Khawaja and Handscomb increased their scoring rate and the right-hander signaled his intentions by clubbing Yuzvendra Chahal for a big six over deep midwicket. Handscomb neared his century by clobbering Jadhav for two straight sixes down the ground and reached 99 with a carved boundary through point as the offspinner leaked 19 runs in the over. India struck immediately after the second drinks break when Khawaja top-edged a short ball from Bumrah to be caught at backward square leg by Kuldeep running in from fine leg. After a couple of dot balls, Handscomb reached the landmark by tapping Bhuvneshwar to the off side for a quick single. Glenn Maxwell started off with some big hits but once he fell to Kuldeep and the decision was not overturned, India sensed an opening. When Handscomb fell, India were firmly in the hunt but Turner kept them in the hunt. There was a moment of controversy when umpire Anil Chaudhary signaled a wide when Turner had edged it but the umpire signaled a wide. This upset the momentum of the Indian team and Turner capitalized, brutalising the Indian attack and ensuring Shikhar Dhawan’s brilliant 16th century went in vain. Dhawan turns the clock back India chose to bat and Dhawan who got going with a boundary to the deep backward square leg fence and he targeted Pat Cummins in the fifth over by slamming him for two boundaries. Dhawan continued to deal in boundaries and scored at a strike rate of over 100. The Delhi opener then went after Jason Behrendorff by hitting him for a couple of boundaries and he reached his 28th fifty in style by drilling Jhye Richardson down the ground to notch up an important milestone. Rohit referred to play second fiddle and he broke the shackles by clobbering Jason Behrendorff straight down the ground over long on for a massive six. The Mumbai right-hander chose to rotate the strike and he made good progress. At the other end, Dhawan neared a century by clubbing Glenn Maxwell over deep midwicket for a big six while Rohit broke MS Dhoni’s record of most sixes by an Indian player by launching Adam Zampa for his second six. Both players stitched a record opening stand in Mohali, going past the mark of 155 which was set by Bryan Young and Nathan Astle in the 1997 ODI. This was the duo’s sixth 150-plus opening stand. Both Dhawan and Rohit got closer to their centuries by pulling Jhye Richardson to the fine leg and deep midwicket fence but in the quest for glory, Rohit creamed the pull shot straight to the fielder to fall for 95. The left-handed Dhawan tough, continued on his merry ways and he notched up his milestone by paddle sweeping Adam Zampa to the fine leg fence. After reaching the century, Dhawan upped the ante and went past 10,000 List A runs. The left-hander also went past his highest individual score of 137 which he achieved against South Africa in the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup clash in Melbourne. However, Dhawan fell for 143 in the quest for quick runs. Australia managed to claw back a touch by taking wickets at regular intervals. Cummins finished with five wickets but India still managed 91 runs in the last 10 overs. In the end, it still was not enough. Australia continued their winning run in Mohali in ODIs.Alex Carey slammed his maiden fifty while Peter Handscomb scored his maiden ton.Australia achieved the highest successful chase by a visiting team in ODIs in India. Mohali: Peter Handscomb’s brilliant maiden ton and his 192-run stand for the third wicket with Usman Khawaja, who blasted 91 had kept Australia in the hunt in their pursuit of 359 against India at the PCA stadium in Mohali. After the dismissal of Handscomb for 117, it seemed the game was up for India but Ashton Turner put on one of the great performances ever seen by an Australian batsmen on Indian shores as his mind-numbing 84 off 43 balls helped Australia chase down 359 and win by four wickets with 13 balls to spare to square the five-match series 2-2 on Sunday. The win prolonged India’s pain in Mohali, where they have not won an ODI against Australia since 1996. This was also the highest successful chase by a visiting team in ODIs in India ever. When Handscomb had fallen for 117, Australia still needed 78 off 48 balls and India still had six overs in the bank from Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuveshwar Kumar, their best death-overs bowlers. Turner started the onslaught by clubbing Yuzvendra Chahal for a six over long on and that was the start of something special. Turner found the boundary on a regular basis and he was well-assisted by Alex Carey. The game changed in the 45th over when Turner launched Bhuvneshwar for two sixes and a four as he leaked 20 runs in the over. Bumrah was the next to feel the onslaught as he conceded 16 runs. Turner benefited from two drops in the next over bowled by Bhuvneshwar with Kedar Jadhav and Shikhar Dhawan dropping catches. Although Carey fell in the 48th over, Turner fittingly hit the winning runs as Australia pulled off one of the greatest wins for a long time. Khawaja, Handscomb fight Chasing 359, Australia made a disastrous start when Aaron Finch fell to Bhuvneshwar Kumar (0) for the third time. In Australia, Finch was troubled by the inswinger and here again, he was undone by a ball that cut back in sharply off the deck. Shaun Marsh (3) was the next to go as he failed to dig out a Jasprit Bumrah yorker. From that point on, Khawaja and Handscomb staged a partnership which put Australia in the hunt to chase the total down. last_img read more

Kings’ Richaun Holmes back in quarantine after leaving NBA bubble

first_img Source: ESPN Sacramento Kings center Richaun Holmes is in quarantine once again after leaving the NBA’s bubble to pick up a food delivery.Holmes said in a statement on Monday that he accidentally crossed the NBA’s campus line at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida, making him subject to an additional 10-day quarantine in his hotel room.“I apologize for my actions and look forward to rejoining my teammates for our playoff push,” said Holmes, who has eight days left of his new quarantine period.After players entered the league’s bubble last week, anyone caught leaving for an unauthorized reason or breaking the initial quarantine period (which included being confined to a hotel room until passing multiple coronavirus tests in a longer-than-24-hour span) was subject to the league’s reentry protocols.That means undergoing enhanced coronavirus testing — testing with the long swab up the nose, as opposed to the less invasive tests players are getting during their time in the bubble — in addition to a 10-day quarantine period in their hotel room.runo Caboclo of the Houston Rockets is also in quarantine again after unintentionally leaving the bubble.“These quarantines are the result of separate circumstances in which the players had interactions with members of the public outside the Disney entrance gate, and are in accordance with the health and safety protocols agreed to by the NBA and the Players Association,” the league said in a statement regarding Holmes and Caboclo.There will be a financial penalty if a player breaks quarantine once the seeding games start on July 30, according to ESPN’s Bobby Marks. Each game missed will project to roughly 1% of salary, meaning Holmes would have cost himself close to $50,000 for every game missed.NBA players were sympathetic to what happened to Caboclo and Holmes, saying it’s a learning experience.last_img read more

Morocco vindicated and Caf shamed over Afcon 2015 decisions – Kofi Amoah

first_imgThe decision by the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) to overturn CAF’s ban of Morocco for the Afcon 2017 and 2019 vindicates and uphold’s Morocco’s wise call for a postponement of the 2015 tournament in the face of the then raging deadly ebola pandemicAfrica got lucky that the tournament escaped ebola infection but it must be emphasized strongly that CAF’s decision to put football and the interest of her sponsors ahead of the safety of the continent was a monumental and irresponsible act that must not go unnoticed!Ebola has no cure, some nations were contemplating banning flights from the affected region or quarantining arriving passengers, the speed with which the disease was spreading and killing thousands of people in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea.In the face of these well-known facts, Africa (the poorest continent with the weakest health care systems) decides to hold a football tournament that will bring competitors and hundreds of spectators from across the continent, including nations from the affected region. Goodness!Yes, we love and embrace football but I believe most Africans would prefer safety and sanity over a tournament that has the potential to spread an epidemic with no known cure! Let’s not bask in the luck of Equatorial Guinea for an ebola-free incident and make future decisions in similar circumstances with reckless abandon.Morocco’s call for postponement was right then and will be right today and tomorrow…Kudos to CAS. Congrats to Morocco. Shame on CAF!Long Live Africa, power to responsible football tournaments.Dr Kofi AmoahChairmanCAN 2008 LOClast_img read more
