Be Cautious of Those Who Don’t Cheer For You and Your Victories

July 29, 2019
Selective love, temporary people quote
Letting go of temporary people or people who aren’t good for you isn’t always easy, but it is sometimes necessary to live your best life.

Not everyone is going to be your cheerleader in life.
If you haven’t already discovered for yourself, genuine supporters are few and far between.
I’m talking about the people who are truly happy for you when you know small or big successes;
People who are truly happy for you when
You are just being you,
Doing your own thing,
Smiling,
Breathing,
Existing;
People who want the best for you;
People who want to see you standing in the sunlight or catching snowflakes on your tongue.
Be wary of those who hold back support and of those who selectively shower or drizzle support on you.
Be wary of those who put conditions on their support, not to mention their love.
Be cautious of those who say one thing when in your presence and something different in the company of others.
Real cheerleaders exist.
You’ll find them.
You’ll know who they are.
They stand apart in the crowd.
They march to their own beat.
They waive pompoms, sometimes loudly, sometimes quietly–but they always cheer.
For you.
Every damn time.
Consistently.
Selflessly.
With love.
With genuine happiness for your happiness.
Wanting to help build you up, to see you grow, to see you become stronger,
Rather than secretly, or not-so-secretly,
Hoping or waiting for you to fall.

Why Write Your Own Blog?

There are many reasons you should start your own blog today. There are THREE major reasons you NEED to start a blog NOW.

1. Writing is good for your soul! Writers aren’t the only people who know that writing is therapeutic. Doctors, therapists, teachers, career counselors, life coaches, yoga instructors, and good friends all know that writing is good medicine.

Writing can be healing. When you write, you can vent. You can get things off your chest and out of your head. Writing sparks creativity. Writing is freeing and liberating. Writing can open all sorts of doors to new possibilities, including new job opportunities, financial success, new friendships, and travel opportunities. Starting a blog is a great way to unleash your writing–and ultimately breathe life into your dreams, your ideas, your future, YOU.

2. People want to read your stuff! Yeah, yeah, yeah, there are always going to be complainers, discouragers, and haters–and people who will tell you that the market and blogosphere are oversaturated with writers and bloggers. But please don’t dare to believe them! Not even for a second.
