I don’t anger easily. So when I do, it is because someone did something really stupid. There’s a little saying: Anger tells us when we have been betrayed-either by ourselves or by someone else. Anger is our friend, like our gut. Both send a strong signal; it’s up to us if and how we react.
Actually, right now I’m about to throw up I’m so pissed. I can’t stand manipulative, sneaky liars. Especially ones I’ve known for years and still do the same thing to me. Duh! Like anyone ever really “changes.” Right?
And no, that jerk you know is not saving a better version of himself to show you one day. People don’t do that. If anything, they show you a public relations version of themselves, and then it goes downhill from there. And if someone wants to give you themselves, they do. It’s just that simple.
Don’t hang on to nostalgic notions that have long been proven unrealistic just because you love someone. It’s ok to love someone, but remember who they are. Simply put:
“The first time someone shows you who they are, believe them.” —Maya Angelou
Takers will take and keep taking forever. Trust me. Taking is all they know, just like giving is all I know. If you are in a relationship with a taker, I feel for you. It’s hard to believe anyone can really be so cold, through and through.
Liars will lie and disappoint you every time.
Don’t try to figure any of these people out. You never will, and you’ll never feel safe either.
Get away from those who give you a bad feeling. That pit in your stomach is your digestive track sending your silly heart a bloody red flag.
RESPECT. RESPECT. RESPECT. If you aren’t getting it, get gone. Cause jerks come a dime a doz, and the least you can do for yourself is find a nicer one.
