Misery Loves Company…

Today I wanted to share a letter I wrote to myself about three years ago. I often write letters to myself and from time to time I read them but never do I share… well, until today.

December 3, 2018

So you thought that she would let you come into her life and drag her down to your level? 

So you thought it would be easy to get her to swallow predigested thoughts and feelings? I bet she surprised you…huh? When God made her, he made a force, a tornado, a tsunami. The only thing that can control and move her…IS HER. Her strength will either scare you or motivate you.

Sad to say, she wasn’t always this way. She had to be broken before she could be royal. But, no matter what heartache or disappointment this queen goes through on any given day, she will remind herself that she is regal.

It took a long time for her to have confidence and determination; the things that gave her hope and an escape were denied. She held a grudge for years; hell, she still does at times. But now that she controls her desires, she takes full advantage of her freedom.

From an early age, she knew she was different. She knew her opinions, views, outlook on life, and desires were unlike others she knew personally. When she was a young girl, she knew she wasn’t supposed to be denied the right to live out her passion, and more importantly, she should have stayed away from a childish relationship.

He was someone that talked about her, hit her, and treated her less than human. You better believe when she made her move, she never looked back. She knew that certain people in her life were miserable and wanted her to be the same.

The funny thing is, she thought that the phrase “misery loves company” was overrated but so not the case. You can see misery daily within your career, church, community, and other areas. She, like others, is faced with people every day who would rather see you fall and bust your face wide open than get ahead in life. 

Whether you are getting ahead financially, physically, or spiritually, it bothers the broken spirits you surround yourself with.

You will win only when you become honest with yourself and start weeding out every individual celebrating your failures. Weed out the ones that are happy to see you be mediocre…like them. Weed out the ones trying to get you to stop doing something you love. Weed out the people that are okay if they hurt you. You should not feel hurt, discomfort, pain, or confusion if you are around people that genuinely care about YOU!

She finally learned to let misery keep itself company while she continued to be ROYAL.

Happy Thoughts and Positive Actions Will Lead to a Healthy Life!

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

  3. Guuurrrlllll, go on wit’ your bad self! 😘💖🤗 I think writing to ourselves and daily journaling is a natural part of our DNA. When we look back at some of the messages we addressed to ourselves, that inward analytics that help us to ruminate and reflect on the stuff we endured which helped us to get through those times of adversity and grow up, I think that is a fantastic journey to reflect on.

    So let those other miserable spirits that are bothered by your growth and achievements brood where they are at and move on down your royal path girlfriend. Now, about those legs….. 😲😱🤪

  4. Love this. We must surround ourselves with aspects of ourselves in people we resonate with, whether we have these aspects now, or want to develop them in the future. So important. Happy weekend, Belladonna! 💜
