Sometimes people show up to be your reflection.. sometimes so you can be their’s. It’s all a matter of perspective. Recently I had someone say something rather unkind about me.. it was also not true. I think the part that was so unkind was that it’s not true.
I had an opportunity to decide what this meant to me. Should I get angry? Get even? Confront the person? I chose none of those things.
Rather I chose to look at what the message was behind these unkind, untrue words. I realized that the pain of the other person was not mine. It had nothing to do with me. People sometimes try to share their hurt with others. Reasons are varied, fear, jealousy.. the reasons don’t really matter to me.
What matters to me is what I chose to do with the experience. I chose to forgive, learn and keep moving forward enjoying my life. Stuff happens. We co create with others.. still we don’t have to get caught up in the energy. I chose to stay in my joy. That’s what matters to me.
Have you been hurt lately? What choices did you make? I put myself at the top of the importance list. My joy is valuable to me. Letting others affect me isn’t the way to joy.
You decide. What will you learn about yourself by the hurtful words of others?
I love you.. Peace…
