How many times have you used the following phrases:
“He/She made me mad.”
“He/she is getting in my nerves.”
“He/She makes me angry/upset.”
“He/She ruined my day.”
🗣 STOP GIVING PEOPLE THE POWER TO CONTROL YOU!!
I used to be the type to wear my heart on my sleeve. I worried about what people would say about me. I worried about being judged. I worried about being embarrassed…but guess what?!!!! TRY ME TODAY!
I am LIVING!! I am LAUGHING!! I am LOVING LIFE!! I have been to the highest of highs, and the lowest of lows, so I can tell you that every situation is temporary. That pain you feel today, will be the strength you feel tomorrow.
So what if you have kids who don’t have a father!!! At SOME point, someone thought highly enough of you to allow you to carry their seed. 🤷🏾♀️ You are a mother….and you have babies…..stop letting the term “baby mama” make you feel inferior. If your kids are happy and healthy and doing well, ROCK IT! It’s NOTHING to be ashamed of.
So what if you failed at your last business venture!!!! You made a step that most people never take. Do it again! And if you fail….DO IT AGAIN!! Don’t let the mockery of other people keep you from fulfilling your destiny.
You have to learn to turn those hurtful words into motivation. Go hard at achieving your goals. Get so consumed with success that you can’t even see or hear the negativity around you.
I challenge you to change your thought process. I can’t count on one hand the amount of times that I’ve been called names, but guess what?! I kept going. I kept smiling. I disconnected from the negativity. I sat down and worked through my emotions before responding. A lot of times we don’t want to stop and think, because it hurts. WORDS CAN HURT!! But along the journey of life, I can guarantee you that no matter how positive you are, no matter how beautiful you are, no matter how much money you make, SOMEONE will find a flaw!!
Be who you are. Unapologetically. Not everyone will like it, but that’s not your business anyway. 💕
