In a couple of days we will be saying goodbye to 2018 and welcoming in the new year 2019. This year has a roller coaster year with it’s highs and lows. It has been a year of adding new friendships, maintain existing ones and terminations of some which had turned toxic.
This year I learnt that some people only are in your life for a season. It is not necessary to have them stay longer then they need to least they cause irrevocable damage to your sanity and safety. Certain relationship do have an expiry date and there is no need to extend the deadline where it would mean additional baggage and complications in our lives.
It is certainly ideal if one is able to have a close knit family and genuine friends and relatives around us. People who have our best interest and are willing to support us unconditionally so that we are able to achieve our maximum potential. It is a blessing to have people who you can grow together with and are always there supporting you in whatever you do.
Unfortunately this is not always the case. Many a times the so called ” family” members are actually devils. They are the ones that create drama and discord as I have personally experienced. They love breaking up relationships and causing perceived grievances to be harbored and revisited continually. They are full of rage and constantly disgruntle. These manipulators create riffs and spare no effort in inflicting pain and misery onto others so they can temporarily feel superior over others. They are gossip mongers and busybodies who seriously have no life!! They spend so much time trying to wreak havoc in the lives of others instead of keeping their own life in order. If only they have the decently to sort out their own problems instead of meddling into others affairs and poking their noses where they are not wanted they can be decent people instead of parasites. They should just Mind Their Own Business!!
I find such behavior simply pathetic as their low self esteem gives them the disillusion that they must be seen to be better of as compared to others. They lust after status and material wealth which is not an accurate measure of the “worthiness” of a person. Try as they wish to LORD over me and the kids and they will find their attempts falling flat on their face. I have already wise up to all their tricks and no way am I going to let them belittle or take advantage of me.
It has been a year of major adjustments for me as I ticked of every of the items listed in this posted above. There is absolutely no need to apologize for doing all of these. I have been created in his image and he accepts me for what I am. I know I am not perfect but I’m getting there understanding his ways and following the path that he has set for me.
Not everyone deserves to know you. Only associate with those who are truly invested in having a REAL relationship with you.
I don’t have time to entertain FAKE people nor want to waste my energies on lost causes. There are too many things which I need to attend on a daily basis and handling trash is certainly a waste of time. My focus has always been on my kids and me and nothing and no one is going to stand in my way of achieving my goals.
