People will be mean to you if you allow them. Maybe they are not mean in heart, but they might not have your best interests at heart and that’s why you’ll end up hurting.
Don’t allow them. Don’t allow anyone the privilege to bring you down. You and only you should have the keys to your happiness.
Because people can and will try to hurt you, sometimes intentionally, sometimes not. It is their choice to do so and make you feel a certain way – unworthy, bad, a failure. But, it’s your choice how you’ll react to it. You have a choice to not adhere to it. To not let it bother you.
You have a choice to decide how you are going to spend your time. You have to decide what’s worth your time and what’s not. What will hurt you, and what will make you happy.
Maybe this will sound like a cliché, but life is too short to waste it on people and circumstances that make you feel like a failure. Life’s too short to waste it on people who apparently don’t want to be in your life. That’s not understanding and love – that’s abuse and self-sabotage.
Let go of those who don’t serve your highest good. You are not responsible for their actions and their nature. You are only responsible for your own actions and thoughts – what you allow in your life, what you have your mind on, what you feel sorry for…
No one can hurt you and make you feel bad without your consent. Sometimes, you must ask yourself: “Do I love myself more?”
Because the thing is, the people we spend most of our time with are the people who shape us to the person we are. That’s why it’s essential to surround yourself with good and positive people. People who bring you up and inspire you to be the best version of yourself.
Finally, we are all human. We are sensitive human beings, but we are also people who are always striving for something. We are people who decide to stand up whenever life kicks us down.
So, don’t let anyone make you feel like you are the bad one. People who are mean to you are usually that way because they lack something that you have. Be mindful of angry people and where their anger is coming from. If it’s not coming from a loving place, but it’s coming from an envious place – run away from them and don’t allow your negativity to be your guide.
When you decide to walk away from anything that doesn’t serve you, your life will brighten. You’ll feel happier and more alive than ever before. And more happiness is what this world needs.
