I had just a few thoughts tonight – since my mind is going a million miles a minute and I can not sleep. But as I was thinking about people and life I had a major epiphany, a breakthrough, a moment of truth about people. I realized that sometimes people just want to be close to you to find out what they can use against you — because you got it going on!!! Nah, they don’t want to be your friend. They don’t want to have your back — they see you as competition and are looking for things to use against you. And it’s saddening but that’s how many people in today’s world operate. Well some people, atleast. I personally am not like that but I am smart enough and have lived long enough to know that there are people (lots of them) that think like that.
So my advice to anyone dealing with those types of people or who are unsure about their friends or people around them — do not worry about these types of people but yet don’t turn a blind eye and play the fool. Yep, puh-lease don’t worry about those types of people because in the end they create their own mess and you don’t want to be a part of that mess – you owe yourself more. Plus, in my opinion that isn’t the way to live — trust me– because eventually Karma stings.
A friend of mine once shared his definition of trust…you can only trust what you can see. I guess Oprah’s saying of “when people show you who they are, believe them” is very very true. I am learning that empowerment comes from being YOU, being wise about who you allow close to you but not holding back on being your true authentic self. It’s a balancing act. And usually when we trust our intuition we are RIGHT about people and what they are all about.
Anywho, Just a few thoughts… thinking out loud tonight LOL! #reflections
