Some people are stupid. It’s sad that ignorance can cloud your judgement to the point that you can convince yourself the truth of your own lies. You know those moments when you are in an argument with someone and you know beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are right and they are wrong, to the point of wanting to stab them in the face and if anyone even gave you an awkward look because of said stabbing, you’d want to stab them, as well?? I was there earlier today.
Instead, I opted out. I am giving that person the last word. Thankfully, I know they think so low of me that they don’t read this because anyone who thinks I won’t amount to anything, I’m a mooch, a waste of space, and that I’m such a horrible person would only read my personal blog if, in fact, the truth was that jealousy was the cause of their anger and resentment towards me. In which case……I unknowingly win.
However, that’s not the case. I know they don’t read this and that in itself is a win in my opinion. I refuse to allow someone’s ignorance to play a part in my life. I’ll wish them the best in my own mind, then use their cruel comments to inspire me to try even harder, just to have the satisfaction of knowing that they’re negative energy was purposely pushed onto me and my family in order to hurt us and instead of humoring it by responding, I’ve EMBRACED it. Held on to it. Kept it as my own. Nurtured it. Pushed it. Then above all else, worked it to the bone like a servant and used it to get me and my family to where we need to be. Happily secure.
Oh, I’m sorry. Did that backfire on you?
Sweet. Sweet victory. It tastes SO amazingly good.
