Hey you guys! Hope everyone had a great day today! If not, I’m here if you’d like to talk about it 💙 .. I know how it feels when you don’t really have anyone to talk too, or you don’t want to feel like a burden. I’m here, always!
So yesterday I was on this app called Reddit that I’m not to familiar with, but I enjoy some of the informational readings that I come across. Anyways, I’m just scrolling through and I come across this post from someone about being excluded by their “friends”, and how it made them feel … Now I’m not they one to “pry” unless personally directed, but it was like I felt the energy from the post and it kind of hurt my heart a little — Shit! I responded. I couldn’t help myself. I felt as though whoever he was, needed to here what I had to say.
As I proceed with my response I could feel a lot of my emotion behind my words because growing up I had the same problem. Trying to please the people around me, wanting to be accepted, and not following my righteous path just to fit in with these people i called my “friends”.
Please! Do not allow yourself to lose yourself over anyone that doesn’t appreciate your presence or your friendship! Building trustworthy, sustainable friendships is hardwork. It can take a lot out of you depending on the type of souls you attract.
This person I was responding to though made it very clear that these friends excluded him because he didn’t have “themes in common!”
“Um excuse me, what in the hell does that really mean”, I thought to myself.
So anyways, I gave him a little more of Boníta’s vibes and let him know how unfair of a response that was from his friends, and that its time to find himself a new circle of people that he has things in common with. Instead of allowing him to join in, or informing him of the current “theme news of the day” they left him out. That sh*t sucks and it’s mean.
Personally I am a people person, and I can make friends with just about anyone. I really honor that trait and many more of course.
As a teenager I didn’t know how to fully walk away from a friendship that I knew weren’t good for me. My friends were all that I had, and I allowed people to take advantage and impose on my souls path. For me it was a choice to stay around these people. I wasn’t forced but I felt if I walked away I would be alone. When I started to see things for what and who they really were, I accepted it! I was able to uncover ME behind the betrayal, deceit, and fraudulent behavior. I uncovered the type of people I knew I needed to be around in order to progress in life. I knew the type of people that had my back. I knew who genuinely cared about my well-being and who did not.
Find those type of people. Find those people who want to be around you, and enjoys your presence. Find those that will tell you the truth. Who will tell you when you’re wrong, but will still have your back. Who doesn’t drain your energy with their negativity.
Furthermore, I got a couple notifications under what I had posted to him a few hours later with some positive feedback. Not only from him, but three or four other people who liked what I had to say. That made me feel so good you guys! Being in a place where I can shed light in anyone’s life makes it all worth it!
“When we learn to accept what we cannot change, and change what we can, life becomes a little more brighter!”
As I look back at my life, I’m glad I’ve experienced the things that I have, the people that I’ve crossed paths with, and the consequences I’ve encountered because I wouldn’t be where I am now! Trust the process!
