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,
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.
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.

Seriously, It’s Really Okay if People Don’t Like You

July 6, 2019
Not everyone is going to you. Accepting this truth will make you feel lighter and happier. Really.

Not everyone is going to like you or be your friend. And that’s perfectly okay. Actually, it’s more than okay.

How comfortable you are with the idea of people not liking you says a lot about you.

If it’s really important to you that everyone likes you, and/or you make it a priority to maintain an appearance to the world around you that everyone likes you, then you are probably: living your life to please people, consciously or unconsciously trying to mask your insecurities, not living your truth, and/or avoiding to let your authentic self shine through because you are afraid of what people will think.

Letting go of a pattern or habit of needing people to like you isn’t an overnight, quick fix. But by bringing awareness to your relationships and patterns, you can come to focus on accepting yourself more, being your own best friend, and focusing less on what other people think about you.

When You’re Bruised

July 5, 2019

It’s hard to trust,
When you’re hurt,
Let down
Bruised, or
That a moment will arrive,
In due time,
When you see,
When you realize,
That you don’t have to hold up the sky,
That you can let go,
Trust, even more,
When it all seems impossible.
You will see,
You will feel,
You will know,
That the sky will hold itself up,
As it was designed to do,
Without coercion,
Without persuasion,
Without convincing,
It will.
Trust, that you will too.
