FROM THE ETHERS
I love way too much. It’s true. I do. I love all people, regardless of what they have done or might do. I may not like people, but I always will love them. It’s actually a good place to be – looking for the best in everyone.
It’s not always been the easiest. I do my best to look for the silver lining. There’s always something good about any situation. Look for it!
Backstory: Even when I was in high school, I used to drive my best friend cray cray because I always looked at the cup half full and not half empty. One time we got into a verbal argument about it. She asked why I always looked at things in a positive way. Thinking about it today, my answer is survival mode. It was a mindset that had to be.
If someone does me wrong, I may get upset for a moment but then I forgive. I think about where they are coming from and wonder what has happened in their lives. Plus, everyone has agenda. Sometimes, I feel like people poke me just to see my reaction. If I don’t get upset, I feel that enrages them. If I do get upset, I feel they have succeeded momentarily to bring me into their world. I don’t stay long.
Remember this – people, including myself, perceive based on what has happened to them in their lives.
Setting healthy boundaries may upset others as well. People do not like change. They want to think of you in a certain way even if it’s not true. Set the boundaries anyway and stick with them. This will help you raise your vibration and evolve.
Because I have a big heart, people take advantage of it and then my feelings get hurt. I back away for a bit and then come back stronger than ever. I am accepting of others and just want to show them love. It’s no surprise I’m a psychic medium and help people on a daily basis.
When I look at this thing called life, my latest mantra is ‘Be of the world, not in it!’ Repeat that a few times. Be of the word, not in it. Be of the
world, not in it.
