The hardest thing I’ve had to do was let people go who said they cared about me but constantly showed they didn’t. It took a long time to really value myself and understand the way that some people were moving. But I feel like as soon as my eyes were truly opened, I started loving myself the way that I needed to. I started noticing many people disappearing or better yet, kind of fading away over time. For a while, I thought, “is there something wrong with me? Am I doing something wrong? What’s really going on?” That’s the reason why I seek communication so much. So that way, i’m not deep in my own head or doubting myself on what I’m feeling or what I’m seeing or noticing. Because, I mean, a lot of people these days will not tell you how they feel. They will not tell you What’s going through their mind and maybe out of fear of what you have going on, or perhaps they may take it as they’re burdening you. I don’t know. I just know that. Once I started loving myself for who I am and really accepting the truth and not being fake for anyone. It seemed like the fake ones began to disappear, which is not a bad thing at all. I mean, shoot, this eased up my life a lot. I’m not sitting here wondering, OK? Did this person really say that, or are people trying to cause drama? Because anybody who knows me knows I don’t do drama, and if drama arises. I’m going to end it and whoever started it. I know how I get when it comes about. That’s why I try my best to avoid it. When people come to you. With all smiles, because you know the saying. First impressions are lasting impressions. Personally, I don’t believe that. Because anybody can be everything that you want within that first, second, third, fourth, or even fifth impression. However, nobody can fake who they are forever. They’re going to slip; they’re going to start showing you who they truly are, and what their actual intentions are. Once that happens. Once somebody shows you who they are, believe it. Don’t second-guess yourself. Don’t think, “oh, this was just a bad day for them or they’re going through something”. Nah. Because if you allow them to full you once, they’re going to think they can fool you repeatedly. And that’s where a lot of the issues are stemming from now, these days. People are too lenient with their boundaries, their feelings, and their emotions. That is what allows them to get stepped on? I can speak from personal experience, honestly. Be careful of the company that you keep. Be mindful of the things that they say and do, because that shows you their true intentions and where they truly stand with you. Now when you care for an individual, whether this is just a platonic or even on a deeper emotional connection type relationship. When you really care for an individual and really think that they’re there for you. It’s a lot harder to let them go. However, nobody is meant to be in your life forever. I mean, shoot. Even when it comes down to twins, sometimes they’re not even supposed to be together forever. It sounds a little harsh to hear, but it’s true.
