At some points in our lives many of us allow persons opinions to detract us from what we are destined to become. They tell us that we are not good enough; they criticise everything we do and constantly bring negativity vibes to almost every situation.
If this sounds familiar to you then you need to eliminate those kinds of people from your life. Life throws at us curved balls and sometimes things do not always go according to plan and that is why you need positive people around you. I always heard my great grandmother say what you put out is what you get back. If you speak positive words, positive things will happen and vice versa. I can attest to this statement as being very true. Your tongue is to me one of the most powerful of your body parts.
I can remember the days when I would read comments on blogs and websites about the Miss Big & Beautiful Pageant. I almost decided years ago not to continue with it. Imagine if I did I would have lost out on meeting interesting people and being able to impact their lives and to me that is a beautiful thing. Going after your dreams and accomplishing what you wanted despite the negativity around you is a wonderful feeling. For me I take the negative and use it as fuel to my fire to get whatever I have to do accomplished.
I honestly used to feel very badly when I would hear persons who didn’t even know me talk about me. I used to ask myself: Why do these people talk about me and don’t even know me? Some persons do not understand that words hurt.
The saying sticks and stones can break my bones but words can never hurt me — that is not true. Words actually do hurt. I was told however that persons who talk about you are sometimes in worse situations than you are because the persons who are in better situations unfortunately do not have you on their radar.
Some people talk about you because they are also jealous and envious of you as well.
Keep your head up and know who you are and what you want to accomplish. Never allow anyone or anything to hinder you from achieving greatness. I will never understand why people talk negative things about each other. Why do some of us behave like crabs in a bucket? We never like to see others accomplish anything in life. We say and do things to ensure that others fail in what they set out to do. If you fall under that category I am sorry to say you are very sad individuals.
Always remember to choose your circle of friends and your support team very wisely. They are a reflection of who you are. Love yourself and accept yourself for who you are. If you don’t love yourself you can never expect others to love or respect who you are. Have a safe Crop-Over weekend ahead!!! One love!!! firstname.lastname@example.org
