I’m learning more and more to keep things to myself. I like to consider myself to be an open book. I will easily spill the tea, but over time it hasn’t always been a good thing. Voicing your deepest thoughts, fears, emotions, goals, and dreams can be very powerful and you have to be careful who you open up to.
Unfortunately we live in a world where people aren’t always supportive or caring. I cant even begin to count how many times I have opened up to someone I have considered a friend, and was devastated by their response. Not everyone really cares about you, and not everyone wants to see you happy unfortunately.
I saw this tweet:
It really hit me! Like wow that’s true as hell. The sad reality is people are jealous, envious, and vengeful. Its better to keep your deep thoughts to yourself sometimes. It’s not worth getting your feelings hurt, or letting the wrong people in. Its crazy how some people will thrive off your unhappiness! Sickening.
Be aware of the people you keep in your inner circle. If they aren’t always rooting for you, keep things to yourself. Notice who doesn’t clap when you win. Don’t always be so willing to give away all your secrets because people will use them against you. Not everyone needs to know what your doing, how your feeling, or your hopes & dreams. Not everyone needs to hear about your trials and tribulations and what you’re going through. Keep it yourself, and work on things internally. You are your own biggest cheerleader, and biggest supporter. Sit back, be quiet, work hard and watch all your dreams come true. I promise things will work out better for you when not everyone knows your business.
