People & Their Bad Intentions

20180508_145123.jpg
I’ve just really gotten to a point where I don’t care to be around people who I KNOW don’t have my best interest at heart if I don’t have to. Some people I tolerate for the sake of peace or because we’re family but here lately .. my tolerance is low. I don’t have a desire to be around those who I know have sneaky motives and bad intentions period. 🤷‍♀️ Like I literally don’t have the energy to deal with what’s clearly negative nor am I trying to find the energy to even fool with it!
I find peace in keeping my distance. And honestly, a small part of me feels guilty for being so distant towards certain people because I know it probably makes them feel some type of way but the rest of me is SO content with it! If keeping my mental health at an all time positive high means I need to cut some people off, let some go or love them from a distance then I’m all for it! In this season of growth, I’m learning how to unapologetically do what’s best for ME. I don’t feel totally bad for pulling away from people. Sometimes you have to do that in order to get your point across. Sometimes you have to teach people how to treat you by what you allow, what you stop, and what you reinforce. If they can’t respect your limits, boundaries or just respect you period then they were never meant to be in your life in a healthy way! That can be a hard pill to swallow at times because the pain is caused by the people you least expect but it’s the truth.
Always do what’s best for YOU. If there’s anyone in your life who has a problem with you being at your best then you might want to rethink their position. If you notice there are certain people in your life who bring more heartaches than they do happiness then you need to rethink their position! Life is entirely too short for you to keep letting people stress you out with unnecessary foolishness. I’m just saying. Take care of you! xoxo!

Thanks for visiting my blog today! You’re awesome and company is greatly appreciated!!

  2. You are so right. I have done this with people that I thought were friends but showed their true colors this past Winter. I know that they look at me with confusion and try to dig into my feelings but I have learned how to deflect them so they end up talking about themselves and I can protect myself.

    • See , so I’m not the only one that feels a little guilty! That’s nice to know, lol 😊 but yes ma’am , we deserve to be treated with same love and respect that we give! Those who constantly fail to do that dont need to be in your space otherwise you’ll just be stressed out. Thank you for stopping by and reading!! ❤

  3. I’ve found that being honest with the person, however hard it may be for them to hear or you to say, is also a good thing. Explain to them and tell them how/why what they do, say or act is affecting you, and why you can’t or won’t have it or them a part of your life. Negativity breeds bad thoughts just as positivity encourages healthy minds.

    • I agree! I feel like that’s definitely a step that needs to be taken before you just put distance between you and that person but after you’ve done that & they continue with their same actions then it’s time to make the next move.
      Thanks for reading and commenting!!❤

  4. Thats right girl! Let go of that negativity energy… sometimes we know and we hold on assuming controlling that enter will stop its path to dismantle your peace, most the tine the strength is in prompting the body to let go of the grasp. Vulnerability.

  5. I used to feel this way, up until recently. Even though we let people go, their negative essence still lingers because it could be “unresolved”. This made me think of a quote I sw the other day, “Don’t be in such a hurry to condemn a person because he (she) doesnt do what you do, or think as you think. There was a time when you didnt know what you know today.” -Malcolm. God has been working on my heart to pray for people like this. I pray that if someone is in your life who has these characteristics, that God works on their heart. In a world full on anxiety and hate, we are all just trying to make it. Great post, love. Keep up the great work. 🙂

  6. I loveeee your writing!!! We are the same girl lol I have to have my peace & I keep a distance from anyone who interrupts it. Idc who it may be. We have to protect our peace of mind & our bubble at all costs. Last year I made the mistake of allowing too many ppl into my personal space & it jacked me up mentally & emotionally. It’s hard trying to come back from that!
