I can’t explain it….. I just woke up different.
Going to bed with a heavy heart and mourning over folks that don’t love you is a complete waste of time. You can’t make people love you or even like you. So why even try? Let that mess go and live your life the best way you can. I refuse to sit here and wonder why people that should love me and have my back DON’T and never did.
I have to laugh because it seems like for a lifetime that bothered me, and I sought out answers, and my rock (my husband) told me to stop. He said, look at everything you have around you and all the people that love you for you and wouldn’t change one thing about you.
A light bulb went off when he said that, and I instantly threw a funeral for all those lonely souls that lost my respect and love. I even made a little speech for the burial.
To all those who have taken up space in my already filled to the rim life
To all those who want to blame everyone but yourself.
To all those who like to screenshot my photos and talk about it
But most of all, to those that talk a big talk and are silenced in my presence.
I gave you all enough of my time, and you are no longer living rent-free in my mind.
It is unbelievable how much peace and joy you have when you focus on your business and surround yourself with love. It took me almost 38 years to realize that love should be easy. Love is not combative. Love is not talking about you as soon as you leave the room.
For years I kept to myself because I didn’t trust anyone. I did, as I still do, put all my energy into my kids and my husband. My household is number one, and I refuse to have my children grow up and wonder what trust and love is.
Believe me…they know.
I took a mental note for quite some time and did the opposite of everything I saw. I’m not saying my household is perfect, but it is built out of respect, LOYALTY, and TRUST. My husband doesn’t have to wonder if I am faithful, and neither do I. My kids know that WE will support and encourage them in everything they do. My daughters know that their education is just as important as my son’s education.
College isn’t based on gender (why do I even need to say that).
Quick question. Why would you allow chaos and ignorance to come back into your peaceful and joyful life?
Can you give yourself one good solid answer to that? I can’t.
Find some way to ignore and erase confusion. Take yourself out of an insignificant, meaningless equation and live.Simplifying your life is the best gift that you can give to yourself.
I wish I could explain in more precise terms how I reached this freedom, but I can’t. I just woke up different!
You could have chosen any blog to read, but you chose mine, and I’m honored.
