People will find reasons to knock you. There will always be someone, somewhere, who is going to find fault for something you have said, done, or wrote. That is just the way it is.
Does that give us a pass to be unkind? Or Selfish? Or to lie down and give up? No! Be happy, kind, successful anyway! Despite the haters! Because of them! If that gives you motivation then I say ” go for it!”
We can’t make everyone happy all the time but we can make us happy when we want! It is our choice!
Yesterday I was looking through some pretty amazing stats on my FB page. I was happy with the numbers I was seeing when something caught my eye, this something said “negative feedback” I do not know what exactly this means, other than the obvious! I did a little research and found that it specifically meant what I thought it did……it was the amount of people who either “hid” my post or said something negative about it.
😦 At first it bothered me a little, but then I figured you can’t please everyone all the time! And since my post was positive and uplifting I knew in this case that really applies!!
So I chose to forget about it and be happy! Why ruin my happiness over the numbers I was seeing on my page? Exactly!
This is just a minor example of ways that my happiness would’ve been stolen from me in the past! I would have allowed those stats to bother me into complete obsessive unhappiness while I tried to figure out why someone disliked my post! (Smile) Not any more!
I hope you too can know when to just tune out the negative and choose to be happy! Because there will always be people around who want to steal your happiness!
Love and Peace~ Christine
