Do you feel the shift? Are you losing love & trust for people you first thought were your friends? Don’t fret. Don’t pout. Hug yourself, because chances are you are excelling in life and that’s giving your naysayers nightmares & junk food cravings. 😂
I once read, if you find yourself depressed, sucked up by other people’s drama, look around. Chances are you are surrounded by arse holes. It’s true.
When you start doing well for yourself, when suddenly after living through darkness and sadness you wake up in pursuit of happiness and start looking happy, you also realise the shift of perception among people around you. Do not let their energy lull your shine. Please don’t get sucked up in their negative comments or insinuations.
This insecure lot that suddenly gets shaken by your success is just that, “Insecure“. Your happiness reminds them about how unhappy they are. Your positive outlook, annoys the shit out of them. Your weight loss, your new job, your cute baby and loving husband all looks unbelievable to them. It burns them, turn them green and so they spit venom behind your back, to everybody who will listen.
I once read Karan Johar’s interview. And he was talking about trolls on Twitter who hate him incessantly. This is losely what he said, “The first sign of success is that there will be at least a handful of people who will suddenly start hating you, for anything at all..It could be the way you look happy, then that would be called fake laughter. It could be the way you make friends, that would be tagged wannabe. It could be the way you dress or pout or even eat or talk. Basically, no one cares to talk about you if you are a no body.. So smile when you hear some nonsense spun about you.You have arrived! ”
Count the people who matter. Choose the ones who are genuinely happy for you. They cheer you up, on your face and behind your back. They also watch you grow and get inspired. These are your well wishers, friends & cheerleaders.
When in doubt, remember you are awesome. You don’t need validation or affirmation from outside. You carry on, rock & roll. Your friends will be dancing right beside you and the rest.. They don’t exist.
