Looking back and reflecting it seems to really become clear of why some of you was so mistreated by some people. Some of our own traumas and insecurities make us downplay ourselves. For example you go to an job opening, networking event, audition and someone tries to discourage you , you automatically think that your not good and shrink. You are good enough sometimes people see you as a threat or jealous because they see that your confident to come to the audition/event in the first place. Society has their beauty & social norms & for you come break barriers it bothers some people. You might look in the mirror and see that you don’t typically look beautiful or your social background or education but still go towards your goals. That takes strength , courage and motivation. A lot of people will rather hide , feel too embarrassed and too shy to try. They don’t want to be laughed at , the friends probably puts them down or they are not optimistic.
We are not punching bags so don’t let someone pick on you because someone who looks similar to you picked on them let them heal on their own and set yourself boundaries. The evil stares , the sly rude comments and the exclusion might be out of your control but you can walk away from it. You are beautiful , whole , special and worthy. Don’t let someone silence you because of their greed , envy and jealously. It’s important to build , love and know yourself because outside social media it’s a cold world set boundaries and learn to select your friends. It does not matter how long you known someone , if someone is toxic let them go and never silence yourself.
You will feel like it’s the end of the world sometimes but as long as you have God , your passions, your being yourself and your own goals you will get through this. It feels uncomfortable right now but that is what breakthrough feels like.
