People who deserve a No! in 2018
I love people even though I am an introvert I do at times enjoy the company of someone either than myself. However sometimes people can cross the line and you just need to set your boundaries directly. In doing so, you might hurt someone’s feelings but you have to protect yourself first and put yourself first at times. One the rules in an airplane is that in case of an emergency you must put on your oxygen mask first before you can help someone else put on his oxygen mask, my point is, it’s not crime to take care of yourself first.
I can’t deal with people who just have a need to comment when they see my stretch marks. All of a sudden they want to give me advice on which products to use. No! Don’t project your feelings on to me I am not a mirror. I am very comfortable with my body thank you. Its like those people who ask you what you going to buy them with your first salary. No! You ain’t getting nothing. The funny thing is that the people who ask you that don’t even know how you pay that tuition or how much it even costs. They don’t even call or text to say good luck on your exams, they don’t even have your digits on their phone.
People who like asking you when you going to finish varsity, when are you getting married and when are you buying a car? No! I will finish varsity in God’s timing. The Bible says there is a time for everything, a time to rejoice and a time to mourn, so there will definitely be a time for me to finish varsity, a time I decide to commit and settle as well as a time to buy that Bugatti and the fact that I am not there means that the time has not arrived yet.
I don’t even want to go into detail about those people who just need to remind you all the time of how much you have gained weight like you don’t have a mirror in your room or as if you haven’t looked in the mirror for years. Those people who want to know what’s going on in your relationship, No! What about those people who think you owe them something. No! The fact that you don’t know whats happening in my life is a sign that you are not my friend or family, so stay in your lane.
People words have potential to destroy and build something because life and death is in the power of your tongue so be aware of what you say to others. Most importantly be aware of what you say to yourself because you spend most of the time with yourself. What you say to yourself matters regardless of what you might be going through. What you say to yourself at times has greater influence than what others say about you so don’t curse yourself with unkind words rather use those words to re-frame your world with positivity.
