In the early days of Nooz Buffet, I kept saying to myself I needed a niche. I needed to find a single direction, or one topic to cover, but I’m glad that never happened. Not focusing on one field or topic has given me the flexibility to cover whatever-whenever, but more importantly, whatever I’m feeling at a given moment. I think that’s what blogging is all about, but I digress.
I just saw a tweet yesterday that was actually a list of some good advice, and the first point was, “those who don’t like you or disapprove of you are projecting onto you or jealous of you. Pay no mind-don’t internalize this. You’re amazing!”
And this tweet really hit the nail on the head for what I’ve been going through the last couple of days. The world isn’t filled with nice people, and not everyone is going to treat you the way you should or deserve to be treated. There are a lot of weak people out here, and there are a lot of scared people out here.
We just have to do our best at navigating around all that, while at the same time, trying find people we have things in common with. But don’t, for one second, buy into the bullshit. Keep moving forward, and keep doing your thing.
I have someone in my life that blames me for everything, and it’s really sad because that person will never accept their own faults, that person will never be honest with himself, and that person will never take responsibility for their own actions, or at the very least, recognize their decisions and actions have an affect on the people around him. It’s always everyone else.
We can’t help everyone, and at some point, as sad as it is, we may have to cut ties with someone like this. I live in the moment. My individuality is important to me. I don’t dwell on the past, I learn from the past and let it go. I think it’s pointless to argue about things that happened 20 years ago, when we could be enjoying right now. And the older you get, the more you appreciate time-because it’s running out.
Have a good evening everyone.
And don’t was your time, energy, or breath on the people who don’t deserve it. You’re important, and you deserve better.
