They are those who always seem to find a destructive way to critique you by making ‘SNIDE’ comments and/or remarks because they feel threaten by you. They point out your faults or better yet create a fault against you to overshadow your accomplishments to try and bring you on a low level of misery such as themselves. It makes me chuckle a bit when some claim to be giving ‘Constructive Criticism’ and they know full well that their really making under handed comments to try and plant a seed of ‘Discouragement’ to get you to second guess your purpose and place in life.
Don’t take it personal Surround yourself with like minded positive driven folk to sustain you during the ‘DREAM SNATCHER’ season….
Most Dream Snatchers are very close friends, family and those we admire. The other day I asked someone their opinion about a lipstick color I chose. I showed them a picture and asked ‘ You think this color looks okay’ and the response was so profound because they did not respond with a simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’. Instead they pointed out a physical flaw of mine and never once did they answer my initial question. So, in that particular moment I realized that this person is in ‘Misery’. I say that because they seen the smile of satisfaction on my face when I finally found me a lip color that I was comfortable with so they felt the need to dismiss the topic and brought light to a ‘FLAW’.
Discouragement breeds hopelessness..
Discouragement is at an all time high and is very destructive. People don’t realize the damage they can do with words, then again they do. At this point in my life I can actually say with a honest heart that for the first time in all my years I am actually ‘Happy’. None of my happiness has to do with material things, none of my happiness has to do with a special person being in my life, I’m just filled with pure joy that translates happiness in my everyday life. Yes! I do get discouraged at times but I’ve come too far to allow words or circumstances to go back into the shell I once was in.
So, I say never mind what they say, keep on doing what you doing. They don’t have to like it or even support you. They may tare you down and make you disbelieve in your own dreams, but don’t let that stop you. Whatever your purpose is, it’s your purpose and not theirs. Trust and believe there will come a time when They’ll want to be your friend again sooner or later……
