Love Encourages… Not Tears Down

“Stop letting people who do so little for you control so much of your mind, feelings and emotions.”  – Will Smith


Have you ever been bamboozled by someone you love and/or trusted, who you believed deep down in your core that they had your back? But their behavior and true character were revealed based on their response (or lack of one) to a serious crisis that left you alone, spent and bewildered?

“When a person shows you who they are, believe them.” – Maya Angelou

I love this quote because it is really true and does make sense. When we are blinded by self-pity, insecurities, self-doubt, we put more truth, faith and belief in others as opposed to SELF. If we aren’t careful about who we put this trust in, we can create even more self-doubt, stress, self-assassination, and failure to believe in SELF. Remember that LOVE will NEVER steer you wrong, beat you up, make you feel less than, or condemn you because of a mistake or misgiving. Heck no!! When a person constantly berates you and NEVER uplifts you to help you bring forth your best SELF… I guarantee you that this person does not have your best interest at heart. Find the will power to sever that toxic, unhealthy relationship–or love them from afar or at a distance. Anything toxic is a direct detriment to your wellbeing and health.

The one gift that LOVE keeps on giving is to eventually reveal the truth about EVERYTHING. That is its core revelation and goal. True Love soothes, heals, restores, encourages, and brings about wholeness, not a lacking.

Last but definitely not least… Remember my paternal grandmother’s famous words: “Always Consider Your Source!

TGIF!!! Yippy!!! Hallelujah!!! It’s the perfect time to reflect, stop and smell the roses, and just breathe. If you do have to work, remember to count your blessings, be grateful that you do have a job; as many are still looking for employment.

Enjoy your weekend… and stay safe!
