Good Morning all!! I hope everyones day is off to a successful start! Today for my Thoughtful Thursday: Jewels For Thought, I wanted to share a post regarding an article I read yesterday; in which the writer gave her horrific account of when she found out the people whom she thought were her friends, were in fact hating on her behind her back. Here’s the short & long of it: Girl has a friend, friend invites girl and her friend on a girls soiree out of the country, girl jumps at the opportunity (because who wouldn’t want to do a trip with friends?), girl and friends are on the beach and girl asks friend to take a photo of her, friend makes a snarky remark about girl “already having too many pictures of herself”, girl laughs it off (yet thinks nothing of it), girl uses friends phone to send group photos from friends phone to her phone, girl finds text from friend (and other friend) talking about her in a not so pleasant manner, girl is mortified. Reading this story made me think about how many people (on a daily basis) are smiling in your face, yet secretly loathing your existence. I find that a lot of times people who do this are unhappy with themselves, making their behavior or feelings towards you irrelevant as it has absolutely nothing to do with you (per se). Often we forget that most of the things that people do to us have nothing to do with us, but more about them. How you carry yourself, your sunny disposition, and extroversion may cause other people to feel uncomfortable because they they too wish they could exude all those quality traits. While these people work on themselves just remember to: keep calm & don’t take it personally!
