Have you ever met someone who disliked you for no apparent reason?

 

Have you ever met someone who disliked you for no apparent reason? It’s the most baffling thing.

In cases like this, it’s easy to decide that you will simply reciprocate the hate, but why hold a grudge when there’s no ‘sensible’ reason behind it?

I found myself chuckling earlier this week when an individual who clearly had an issue with me, needed assistance—from me of all people. I could not wrap my head around the thought.

The urge to decline the individual’s request was increasing by the second and I could feel my cheeks expanding, as I toyed with the idea. Although I reminded myself that gloating was a bad idea, I could not control what I felt in that moment.

Eventually, however, I got ‘a hold’ of myself and did what was right.

As you get older, you will realize that sometimes you must be the bigger person, even if in that moment, you come across as the “loser” and not the “winner” you want to be seen as.

Perhaps you’ve heard your parents or another adult say “life is not all fun and games”. There is so much truth in that statement.

At times you will feel the need to succumb to your “true self” and do the very things you should refrain from doing.

“I’m petty,” we say sometimes, or “I really don’t care,” when in reality we should.

I find myself in this position sometimes—wanting to give in to what I swore was my “true nature”. After all, it sure feels good.  However, this behaviour only hinders our progress.

On Tuesday, I found myself apologizing to someoneeven when I did not want to. After all, I loved being right. Sometimes, however, it’s not about how we feel, but simply doing the things that will cause us to move forward.

Just in case you think that you can’t do it: you can.

If I can, you sure can.

Have a good weekend my loves.

Sincerely, always,

Rae A.
