Broken People

A broken person will always try to break you until they find out what you’re made of.

I can’t even begin to tell you how many people have entered my life and tried to recreate what God had intended. But wait, stop right there if you think that this applies only to strangers. Please think again. Broken people are in all areas of your life.

It’s your job to identify who they are and ruin their plans.

I am a mother of 3, and I am constantly telling my children to be mindful of who they are bringing into their lives. I want them to be aware that their company carries a definite presence. A broken person will watch how you move and interact with people. They will make it their mission to ruin people’s perception of you and your positive view on life.

Let’s face it!

We all know people who will laugh and talk with you and make you feel like your existence matters. Then as soon as you walk away, they will do everything to destroy your character. In the past, that behavior would have infuriated me. However, I learned to deal with it the best way I know-how by saying nothing because I can show you how strong I am better than I can tell you.

My strength lies with the ability to use every situation as a building block. Not only will I use that block to step up and get me closer to greatness. But I will use that Block as a barrier and never allow you to reenter in my comfort zone. My peace of mind is far too important to allow broken people in my area. I refuse to “forgive and forget.” I have always had an issue with that phrase. Instead, I will forgive, but I will always remember what that broken person did.

Pushing the wrong behavior to the side and pretending nothing ever happened is doing a disservice to yourself. Oddly by “forgiving and forgetting,” then allowing that person to reenter your life is a reward.

Why would you choose to reward negative behavior?

Now allow me to repeat, I am a firm believer in forgiving the broken person because it will free your mind. However, I have zero interest in learning who or what broke you. I can pray for you and wish you the best. But I can’t waste my life trying to figure out why people do what they do unless I am, of course, a trained psychologist.

Since I’m not!

I would be of zero value to you in that regard. Instead, I only choose to offer my fellow positive, and uplifting, beautiful persons this advice concerning broken people.

Broken people will always try to break you until they find out what you’re made of. So be brave and stand firm on your truth. Be too strong to break and too determined to lose you.

You could have chosen any blog to read, but you chose mine, and I’m honored.
