I know a lot of people but there are only a small amount of them I can call friends, not to say that it is a bad thing! Recently I’ve been opening up myself more and I am on this journey of finding me. Along the way I’ve come to meet some, not only new people but some old and I’ve actually been willing to get to know them properly. This has been a good and bad thing but I must say I have really got to know some great people with big hearts and I am very thankful! Meeting someone that you can relate to on so many different levels is actually awesome! Not to say my day1 homies aren’t but its so refreshing hearing another persons perspective on life and being able to nod and agree ever so peacefully! Lol it might not be anything to the ordinary person but to me it’s WOW!
I’d describe myself as reserved. The old me would never be so willing to allow new people into my life as I think it’s just easier! I don’t want people thinking they can take me for granted as I’m so laid back because when they do, wow I have to unleash the dragon and unlock the cage, although its something I hate doing. I will be the first to admit that I have a temper but at the same time I am not easily angered and it takes a lot to get me into that space! I like to avoid and prevent being in that space. I hate the fact that someone else can have such power over you and cause you to act out of character. For me personally, I am nice because it is nice to be nice and I have been raised to always act in a positive manner. It really annoys me how people act like being nice and polite to people is out of the ordinary and almost like a reward. Best believe me when I say I am counting my blessings! Taking my kindness for a weakness will always fall back on whoever chooses to do so!
ANYWAYS here is my point, always leave room in your story for new characters to arrive…People who will make you laugh, cry, stretch, grow & become a better person, Always be you and don’t let people bring you out of your character, stay true to yourself and things will always fall in your favor!
God will never forsake you especially when you’re trying to be the best you!
Isaiah 41:10New International Version (NIV)
10 So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
