There will always be someone that makes you out to be the bad guy.
Brace yourself for it because if it hasn’t happened to you yet, it definitely will. The “bad guy” blame does not discriminate. And when it shows its ugly head, it will leave you second-guessing who you are and your worth. Then self-doubt will set in, and lastly, overthinking will finish the job.
How to avoid second-guessing yourself, self-doubt, and overthinking
One thing that I have learned is the fact that in order to grow we need positive energy around us. When we allow folks in our lives to take and take some more and never refill our cup, we’re left drained.
Therefore what happens when you drain a cup? It’s EMPTY
That’s what happens to us. When we feel empty, self-doubt sets in, and it’s a rollercoaster effect from that point. Doubting yourself is depressing; a confident person doesn’t carry doubt, nor will they allow others to speak doubt over them.
Remove yourself from people that don’t make you feel good, and if you’re lucky enough, that will remove themselves because they no longer feel as though they fit in your higher plan. LET THEM GO!
This brings me back to being the bad guy; those same people that brought ruckus and instability in your life are the same people that will make you out to be the bad guy. They know that no one loves, let alone likes, a bad guy, so they will paint any picture of you that they need to paint. They want others to see the terrible person they want you to be.
They hope to create doubt, diminish your self-worth, and put your mind in overdrive!
I’ve been there, done that, and it’s a waste of time to put yourself through unnecessary preadolescent emotions. Instead, focus on living life to the fullest and stop worrying about the picture folks want to paint of you.
And stop leaving your cup empty; pour into yourself always. Because the selfish folks that you’re pouring into are the ones that LOVE to make you the bad guy so avoid it.
