Dear Resilient Girl,
The world is full of a lot of messages that just aren’t good for the soul. Sometimes people in our lives are the ones delivering those messages. We must decide not to open our hands or our minds or our hearts to these kinds of messages.
We have to guard our hearts and our minds from the words and actions of others. We have to discern the intentions of others and whether our interactions with them are in a spirit of kindness, love and best interest.
Broken people often have broken beliefs and say broken things…things that try to break you. Broken people are also often addicted to reactions, and they will do and say anything to feed their need for reactions from you and others.
We can love others without letting their words and actions affect us, and we must…or broken people really can break us.
If it doesn’t feel like kindness, if it isn’t going to make you a better person, if it doesn’t feel like love…..reject it, let it go, close your ears, walk away.
You get to decide what your boundaries are, and you are valuable enough to protect. Please protect yourself.
You are so very loved, it’s true.
