Deferred Dreams 🚫 Beautiful Nightmares

Came across this post on social media and it resonates so deep, especially from the events of this past week. Every had someone try to inflict their false negative narratives on to you?

Time and time again the old saying holds true “We are our own worst critics” so with that being said I dont need assistance with anyone reminding me my own of shortcomings. That’s why I typically flee from hurtful conversations where the next person is just bringing up situations from the past with no intend to resolve anything. Just for the sake of putting you down, so toxic. So I literally end that negative talk and let them go about their business. I’m all for self improvement, so I’m not insinuating that anytime some is calling you out on your bullsh*t label them as toxic and dismiss them, NO! 🙅🏾‍♀️ I’m referring to someone becoming a naysayer and attempting to implant those same false narrative viewpoints in your own mind.

Whatever thoughts they have against you reaching for and going after your goal is an internal problem they have with themself. That type of negativity has no room anywhere near me.

When I had this incounter, it reminded me of the great poets Langston Hughes work, A Dream Deferred

For those who turned their backs on what they really aspired out of life become so bitter and do everything in their power to deter you from accomplishing your goals. Attempt to plant little seeds of doubt in your brain so you dont want to achieve greatness.

But it doesn’t work on me anymore, once a upon a time as a little girl it would have. But now I’m able to identify it and see when it rears its ugly head, so I send it packing. Return to sender, I dont want nor need such negativity. I have my Goal Getter list that must be achieved, with every fiber of my being I believe in myself and my capabilities. Regardless of what you may think its not my business and I’m not concerned. In fact I am just that much more motivated to finish my goals, it’s not a race and bottom line I WILL BE SUCCESSFUL, maybe not immediate. But INDEFINITE, I WILL SUCCEED!!!

Thanks for stopping by. As always:

Peace & Love

P.S dont take no one’s sh*t especially when you have a goal, that’s yours believe it, work hard at it, achieve it.

Mental Wellness is a struggle we can ALL relate to.

Personally I dont like the term ” #MentalIllness” because it has such a negative undertone. And the stigma that society puts on those who experience some form of difficulty is unearthing. Often leaves the person isolated and withdrawn worried of appearing crazy or outside of the “norm.” (Cause there is no such thing as normal. Just people running around trying to live up to the expectations of others, which is just a recipe for disaster)

Just know it’s more common than you may think. We all have either have a family member, know a friend or you, yourself may be dealing with Wellness issues. Please dont feel as though you’re a “burden” or keep everything bottled in. There are people around you who love you and care. Reach out, believe it or not your presence makes an impact.

In light of all the news of suicides in the media please dont suffer in silence. Even if you do feel alone and think you have no outlets you can always try the National Suicide Lifeline

Please let’s prevent tragedy from ever occurring. Reach out if you need to, they’re available 24/7.

Let’s be kind to one another, more forgiving of ourselves, and less judgmental 🙏🏾

As always, thanks for stopping by

Peace & Love

Be well 😊
