Not everyone is going to like you and less people will love you, but hey, that’s okay; go out into the world and be your bad little self anyway!!!
This has been a hard truth for me to accept because I naturally do not like to make waves with people. I take after my dad who is always calm and collected and hates conflict, but let me tell you, if someone crosses him; he chooses to completely disengage and not let that person get him down.
The “not letting that person get me down” is hard because I hate when there is even a trace of bitterness in the air.
I am learning that this is life and I cannot continue to let this lady’s unkind words and labels get under my skin.
I know who I am and who I am working towards becoming.
I hate when I let tiny encounters like this yuck my yum! And what bothers me the most is that I have let it spoil an entire day (maybe even a couple).
This is so little and I am so blessed to have people in my life who love and uplift me. I think that it is ungrateful of me to let someone who really does not matter (in my life) to make me feel small at all.
This is another good opportunity for me to practice letting things go and moving past them.
My friend Simone once said it beautifully:
“Don’t allow your worries and your fears about the future, eclipse the gifts of the present.”
If you are currently dealing with someone who puts you down, labels you, or tries to marginalize you I must say from the heart that I am sorry. Know that this is not about you and that person is probably projecting something from their own lives.
Don’t let it get you down. Be strong and move on. You Got this! WE GOT THIS and together we are UNSTOPPABLE!!!
Love, Joy, and Blessings Always,
