Be You! 

  
This quote speaks so much to me! See I’m totally the kind of person who checks on you if you’re having a bad day, remembers small details about whatever you are going through, or find out what inspires you and tries to encourage that in you. But I’m also that person who gets disappointed when those same actions aren’t reciprocated. I remember my mom telling me back in high school, “don’t expect people to treat you the same way you treat them.” Well I’m far from high school now and I have to admit I still kinda want people to do that for me. Is it naive of me to expect people to care enough to simply say, how are you–with no strings attached? 

I find that as life goes on, I was tempted to change who I was because of other people’s behavior. How was that working out for me? Well, I wasn’t being “me.” I wasn’t staying true to who I was and I in turn was becoming those same people that don’t necessarily take time for others. But it was a choice I was making to change me. I knew when I was keeping my distance or retreating from my “true” self. It didn’t make me happy. I was missing a big part of who I was and what I was created to be. Sure I wanted to convince myself, it doesn’t matter, they don’t ask about my life so why ask about theirs, why go the extra mile, why do I keep trying?  But I eventually learned that this was just part of what made me who I am. I definitely can’t expect people to be who I would like them to be but I most certainly can expect me to continue being my true self–let’s face it, no one else can do you like you do you!

So with all that being said–

How are you today? 💕

    Don’t place your trust in relationships but rather on the one that matters the most

    I feel at this point in my life I have distanced and ended many relationships with those who do not treat me as I treat them. I think that if you don’t treat others in an intrinsically good natured way or genuinely than you are like that in other parts of your life. I don’t want that negativity in my life. I treat others in a genuinely nice way but I have expectations of how people treat me. In these one ended relationships I feel as they will end because of the lack of genuinity but those relationships where both people treat each other as they want to be treated last a lifetime.

      Some times when people are going through certain things in life, they may not treat you the way you expect. Many times you do have to take a step back and see who is worth the investment you will place in that relationship. Remember you don’t always have to be best friends but can always choose the higher road by staying polite and staying true to your character.

    That’s truth. But sadly, most times people prefer the lie, the fakeness, the game. Good word baby. Keep being real…
