Approach everything and anything with complete transparency. If you’re catching a bad vibe, that is a gut check to let go of people who don’t honor and respect you as you do them.
You can’t force someone to be your friend; they’re either a good person with good intentions or they’re not. It’s quite simple yet we get caught up in it and the time polarizes your mind and heart.
“What have you done for me lately?” as my husband and Janet Jackson say. Sadly there are a lot of people who will use you and discard you. But that loss is on them in the long run.
Their quick actions of getting your attention and using you for whatever they want will only haunt them as you remove yourself from their life. When they need you to do something else for them, they’ll resurface in your life only do it all over again.
“One must not let oneself be overwhelmed by sadness.” – Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
As much as it hurts, you can’t bring that overwhelming stress into your body. It’s unnecessary stress. Grow and glow through it.
Take a step back to see it all on a broad scale.
The moody parts of life, or a canvas in this case, makes the light colors have deeper dimensions. The rich strokes of light and love are prevalent and pale in comparison to the darkness.
