Taking a survey vs. being concerned

Are you okay?

•I really didn’t want details, I was just being polite.
•It doesn’t really matter I just needed a favor
•I don’t really have time to listen so hurry up.
•Oh that’s too much, I didn’t expect you to have problems.

Sound familiar?

Probably not, but you certainly feel like that’s what they mean when you’re snubbed after being asked, don’t you?

Time to recognize, honor and be a good steward of your real friends. They may not always say what you want to hear, or be able to do what you want them to do; but you have decided they are your friend, mentor, coach, confident, etc. for a reason. Don’t waste your time looking for a shoulder or ear with folks you don’t know and/or don’t trust.

Quacks Like A Duck

Shared from What Makes An Eagle Quack Like A Duck?

There’s a not so fine line between being nice and being naive when making decisions about your friends, partners and social circles.

Some folks deceive themselves into thinking that they are being nice when they carry on with relationships that are unfruitful and unproductive. But when you refuse to walk away from someone that you know lacks integrity… (more).

When To Mind Your Own Business

#LivingSugarFree of Complainers:

Don’t be deceived by spirits of discontent, strife, and bitterness.

Have you ever made the mistake of trying to break up a fight between two angry lovers? You probably still have the physical and/oremotional scars to remind you.

The same thing happens when you get between God and his ungrateful children. You know the ones, no matter how things change or improve, if it’s not their way, they are not happy. People need to learn their own lessons… When you get in the way you become their scapegoat; helping them avoid the actual lesson.

My advice:

  1. Let complainers complain.
  2. Don’t offer advice, or solutions unless they ask…
  3. And if you value your peace, by all means don’t point out their misery.

If you get blind sided in the name of trying to help or cheer someone up, just remember this additional advice.

  1. Don’t take it personal and write off the attack as a great lesson in wisdom… you probably won’t forget again because, it’s true for you too. Experience is the best teacher.
  2. Listen to Pharrell’s Happy song to shake it off and refocus your energy.
