Why is it that people do not like to see you happy? Better question is, why is it that it’s usually the people that are closest to you that always have something to say? My mom use to say, if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it at all. The crazy thing is they are also the main ones asking you what is going on in your life. To those of you who are that negative friend, is it because your life is unhappy? Jealousy? Because we are finding peace where we are in life and you can’t accept your unhappiness? Whatever the case may be, STOP ruining our happiness with your negativity. To us passionate ones trying to find joy, STOP letting them ruin who we are trying to become! Do not let their negativity influence your attitude to become negative as well. Simply continue to strive for better by not letting those negative Nancys and nates phase us.
It’s a little hard to just cut off those so called “close friends” of ours because they have a bad attitude. To me, the easiest solution is simply don’t! Just stop letting their bad vibes phase you and if it comes to a point where it’s getting worse, stop telling them things. Eventually life will work itself out and realize that you are on a different path and 1 of 2 things will happen:
1: They will slowly start distancing themselves because your positive vibes are too much and they believe your life is better.
2: They will realize that your happiness is to see them happy as well and they will get on board to happyland.
If they happen to do the first one, guess what? THAT IS TOTALLY FINE! Alleviates you having to do the hard work of cutting ties and life will go on. People come and go all the time.
Don’t dim your light because you see your light shining brighter than others and you want to fit in.
Continue to press forward and hopefully they will see your light shining from afar and will follow. Life and people are often difficult and mean. Don’t let neither one get the best of you! Some of you are probably thinking that this is easier said than done and trust me I completely understand! But I also know that people can influence in a negative way and we don’t even realize we’re being influenced until we are back into that black hole. We have worked so hard to get to where we are that we WILL NOT go back. All of those tears, the time, and more tears that it took to even understand why the tears were even falling. Being completely vulnerable with ourselves to open up and look inside what we have been locking away for years!
Don’t fall into the trap!
and DON’T let the negativity of others dim your light!
Keep Shining! 🙂
