For this second post, lets just jump into what my past has taught me and the current events going on in my life.
I remember when I was younger my mom always told me never to worry about what anyone ever thought about me. She was always supportive and I listened. Anything someone said about me or thought would bother me, I just brushed it off.Some people ask me how I do it, sometimes they ask me if I think letting people say whatever they want about me is like letting them walk all over me. I don’t.
In my recent experience there actually was a time where this group of people were talking about me. You know when you hear something about yourself and you’re like “wow when did I do that?” That’s the type of situation it was. They didn’t like me so rumors started out of no where and people stared at me with judging eyes.
What did I do? I kept my head up. Because I believe that even when people are being negative about or towards you, you should not retaliate in a way that they want you too. If you think about it, rumors start and then two weeks later someone else is the new “headline”, tragic really. So when my “headline” was dead and it was someone else time to shine, people still asked me about said rumor. And so the truth eventually came out that it was not true.
If you ever want to get under someones skin, you do not have to react to anything that they are doing to you. Having no reaction is sometimes the best thing for you to do. Because really, what did you learn from the situation other than you can be just as dirty as the person who started it. Where you can’t learn less, you can improve the person you would like everyone to truly know. I always look back on what my mother told me, she was always great role model, although she doesn’t think she is.
With all of this being said I am going to end with this:
At the end of the day someone is going to try to put you down regardless of your decisions, so do whatever makes YOU happy.
