No matter how much you try to do the thing that feels right to you, there are always going to assholes thinking they can tell you how to feel, think, act, and live YOUR life.
There are always going to be very sad little people who will try to dim your light by trying to make you feel wrong/less than/freakish/abnormal.
To those people, I say this:
Sit and spin.
Yeah, that’s right. Right here on my middle finger. G’head.
Remember this: These assholes I speak of only have as much power as you give them. If their attitude and behaviour towards you makes you feel and react a certain way, it is your fault and not theirs. Don’t give them the power to decide how you should feel about and perceive yourself. Love yourself always first and foremost, and no one can ever hold sway over your connection with yourself.
Take your power back and fucking wield it without apology or shame.
I have started saying the following Ho’oponopono mantra when I feel a negative feeling come up pertaining to a specific person and/or event:
I’m sorry. Forgive me. Thank you. I love you.
Set yourself free, and let others deal with their own shit… because it is always their own shit which they fling at you every chance they get. Deflect the shit. Karate chop it and laugh in their faces as you streak naked across their dank swamp of negativity they try tirelessly to drown you in.
Peace out. Don’t let the bastards grind you down.
