I remember not so many years ago when I would do things to please people.
A LOT of what I did was to please folks.
PEOPLE was a huge problem for me.
I would change who I was in order to satisfy the people I was around.
In short, I was MISERABLE. I didn't know it at the time, but I truly was.
I've learned to just be me. ADRIENNE.
If YOU like $1000 shoes, thats YOU. I am NOT about to go broke trying to get stuff that YOU like.
If YOU only like to dresses that are $2000 that's YOU. I'm NOT about to go broke trying to get things that YOU like.
If "I" eat food with cream of chicken in it and YOU don't, I'm not going to stop eating stuff with cream of chicken in it.
In short, I'm going to do what makes Adrienne & family happy. You continue to do what makes YOU happy.
I don't like it when people try and make other people feel bad because they don't do or like the things that the other one likes. I hate that really.
If you like to work out and I don't, that shouldn't be a problem lol.
I think things are so messed up in todays society because a LOT of people don't think for themselves. They allow what other people say and do to influence their actions.
I'm so cautious now of who I allow in my space. See, people will see who you are and what you have and will be jealous (NOT SAYING I HAVE ANYTHING TO BE JEALOUS OF, just making a point) of that and do things to make you NOT happy.
They know your character and they know they can get over on you. MOST times it's because you are happier than they are, or in a good place and they don't like that. So they get in your head and get you off track.
Yep, I've been there too. I let someone talk me into some things and lawd. SMH.
So I speak from experience.
I didn't believe in MYSELF. I didn't have confidence in myself.
Sure, some of you may have ALWAYS been confident in yourself, always had your own mind, always did/do your own thing but that wasn't Adrienne.
NOW....babbbbyyyyy. Humph lol. God keeps me level headed and He will show me things WAY before it happens. Even if I choose to ignore what He is showing me.
Just be encouraged. Be you. Don't let what others do influence YOUR actions.
YOU reap what YOU sow.
Ok, I'm done lol. Just needed to get that out. Next update will be something crafty or happy go lucky. Some sunshine and rainbows lol SOMETHING lol
