Practice smiling and being “happy.” There’s a lot of people out there who aren’t so thrilled with sunshine so they may try to rain on your day. This is what you do. Laugh whenever you hear or see a cynical comment. Laughing is good for your soul and it makes us feel better. Remove negatives out of your day. Go take a warm bath or listen to some soothing music. People may think that they can ruin our days by using ignorance but they have to understand that they’re efforts are useless.
Be encouraged. Rain won’t hurt you, words can hurt if we allow them to seep in our thoughts, once we learn how to block them out then they won’t pierce out hearts. Remember this. Those who are dissatisfied with themselves will try to throw rocks at your glass house. Smile even if they can’t see your smile. Keep moving in the direction that helps you move closer to a better you. No one can really rain on our parade if we’re unwilling to let them do so.
Anyone trying to do something that generates attention or creates a positive change will be a target. Being a target in this case isn’t all bad but it can be draining if one focuses in on those who live to generate misery. They don’t deserve to receive the attention that they’re seeking. If they’re unwilling to be respectful and kind then leave them with their cynical comments and move on to those who are willing to be apart of growth.
Some people may believe that they will receive the attention they’re seeking by trying to knock someone down. A little rain won’t hurt but too much of it can do some damage. The Cynical ones help in some way. They will encourage you do go harder but they can also be a nuisance if they’re embedded in your thoughts. They can’t offer anything but unwanted comments so think of the good even when the bad tries to make its way at your door.
“Envy creates havoc but love creates hope.” Be hopeful even when it seems the chips are down. Not everyone who offers a cynical comment or says something we don’t want to hear is seeking to destroy us. Some could be going through some tough times and they’re not equipped to deal with them so they lash out. You don’t have to be dragged down by their issues but you can take a minuet to understand. If the behavior continues then you know that they’re dream killers and they can not be apart of your mission.
