I have so many wonderful people in my life, I think I'm one of the luckiest people in the entire world.
My parents are some of the most wonderful people I've ever met, my friends are awesome and make me laugh everyday, my boyfriend makes me a better person everyday... I'm just so lucky and happy to have all these great people in my life.
With all the good apples, unfortunately, come some bad apples. That's why it's come to my attention lately, we have to be really careful with whom we let into our lives because you never know what kind of effect they will have on your life, past, present and future.
For most of my life, the people I've let into my life and share aspects of my with have been great people, but I have come into contact with some bad people. They try to tear you down, break you, crush your spirit and take things from you. It's been my experience that most of these people are putting on facades and you don't see their true colors until it's too late! It's sad that people feel the need to cover up who they really are, good or bad! I can't imagine how horrible they feel and hopefully one day they will be comfortable in their own skin.
But, thankfully, over the past 23 years nobody has been able to break me or tear me down, and I don't anticipate anyone being able to in the future either! I see these people and feel sorry for them, even though their main goal is to see me fail. I try to see the good in everyone, even though they may not feel the same as I do or view the world as I do.
One of my goals for 2011 is to help people like this! I want to help them see the world is a wonderful place and there's no need for all this fakeness. Be happy in your own skin! Make it priority to be completely happy with yourself first, because if you don't love yourself for who you really are you're never,ever going to be happy with anyone else. And, if you have to put on a front for other people, they're probably not good to have in your life in the first place.
And just remember.... most people like a good apple over a rotten, bad one! Which are you?
Just a thought before the new year!
Happy holidays everyone and I hope you have an AWESOME new year!
