One thing I like the most about writing is the transparency I am able to give to my readers. Lately I’ve been dealing with trying not to let certain people get the best of me. But what do you do when people are spreading lies about you? What do you do when people go out of their way to try to make you feel inferior? Simple, ignore their unstable behavior — don’t allow them to make you feel any kind of way. Be in complete control of your emotions. The moment you start feeling angry, sad, intimidated, is because you are allowing them to make you feel that way.
Often times people ask me how come most of the time I’m so happy, energetic and optimistic, and my response usually would be, “I try not to let anything and/or anyone control my emotions.” I refuse to give anyone the power to make me feel any kind of way! However, that doesn’t mean that I sometimes don’t get angry, sad, scared, embarrassed or intimidated. ’cause believe me I do. I just don’t let myself linger on the emotions for too long.
Now next time someone wants to make you feel inferior by pissing you off or intimidating you, ask yourself if its worth your energy. Then brush off the feeling and take control!!
