The world is a scary place, where we get to meet all kinds of people.
Some of them will captivate you with their energy, and some of them will drain you from within.
Then, there is a third (and the most dangerous) type. We can call them the ‘you will never be good enough’ type.
No matter what you do, and no matter how hard you try, these people will never be happy with anything that comes from you.
You will never be smart enough; your hair will always be too dark, too sleek, too long, or too short; even your make-up will be too intense or too light; your choice of music will be lame and your obsession with books will be nerdy; the favor you did for them will not be a big deal and your determination to help them won’t be enough.
When you get in touch with these types of humans, remember that you should never break yourself for the people who are wrong for you.
That time your close family member told you that you would never be successful is the time they wanted to be like you.
Their jealousy kills them, but they don’t want to tell you how far you’ve actually come.
Instead of words of appreciation, you heard words of hate and resentment but keep in mind that they did that in order to feed their ego.
If they had expressed words of support, they would have immediately been admitting that you could or would succeed, which would break them on the inside, so instead, they decided to try to break you.
Remember that time your ‘best friend’ told you that you looked terrible in that new dress you were so happy about, and then the next day she showed up in the same outfit?
That is also jealousy. Terrible, sorrowful jealousy which they use in order to control you!
And that guy you went out with?
Do you remember how he used to say that you looked ugly, how you should dress nicer, and how he hated your chubby cheeks?
You spent nights, wide awake, thinking about his words, and you wanted to change because you believed him.
Now you know that he wasn’t right for you and that his expressions were a result of his inner dissatisfaction with himself.
He actually hated his flaws but transferred them onto you.
Even your ex-manager made you feel unappreciated.
You felt like your work was never good enough even though you broke your back improving and working on yourself.
Guess what? That neurotic boss was troubled by his own manager because he wasn’t working hard enough.
The rage you felt and the provocation you got from all those people reflect only their state of mind.
All of them tried to solve their own issues by bringing you down.
You have to let them go, as they provide an unhealthy source of emotions and feelings. Once you let yourself free of them, you will feel instant relief.
The only reason why it was good that you were in contact with those types of people is because of the experience you gained through your relationships with them.
Every experience leads you to the place where you’re meant to be.
In the end, everything will work out, so always remind yourself that you will never be good enough for people who are not worth it.
They are not meant to be in your life so don’t keep thinking about them and stop trying to change yourself.
Understand your worth, and don’t keep looking for love in other people!
Your happiness comes from within.
You will never be happy or content with yourself or your life until you realize that you must be the reason for it.
Other people come and go; they will pass through your life and only the rare ones will stay.
Until you find those who truly and deeply care, don’t waste time trying to satisfy those who don’t pay attention to your feelings.
You will feel instant happiness when you surround yourself with the right people.
They will support you and be there for you, and you will feel the love they share with you.
On the other hand, the ones who are filled will jealousy will continue to make you feel drained and lonely.
No matter what you give them, they will always find reasons to criticize you.
Your job is to ignore them and focus on yourself.
People are weird creatures, and they think that by breaking someone down, they are lifting themselves up.
However, their feelings of joy and satisfaction are only temporary.
After some time, the words they uttered to you will hit them like a ton of bricks.
Trust me, they will start thinking about them, and they will even try to improve their relationship with you.
When that happens, you will be far ahead of them. You won’t be turning back, however, as you’ll have got to the point in life where you know your worth.
Everything will pass, so keep in mind that you should never break yourself for the people who are wrong for you.
Their opinions and negative comments will no longer hurt you as you’ll have already become a phoenix who rose from the ashes of their hate.
