The truth is, they’re not your friend. They’re just nosey neighbors, and like a nosey neighbor, they’re only here for the tea. Some people get a kick out of minding (not theirs) YOUR business! So, don’t take these “friends” (and you know who they are) too seriously! Also, let me just say this, just because you grew up, went to school or worked with many of these people, it does not mean they’re actually your friends. They’re just associates and some of them you know for a fact don’t like you. The point is, please stop posting all of your business to social media because most of your “friends” don’t care, they just want something to talk about. Real friends don’t get a kick out of other people’s misery, or whatever it is you’re going through. Real friends are those who knows how to get a prayer through, who supports you, encourages you and genuinely loves you. If you have those real friends in your friends list, you should thank God for them because real friends are just as rare as real love these days, and that’s real talk! But God! Let me tell you! He will use strangers to bless you! Most of the people who supports you mentally, emotionally and who supports the vision God has given you, are not going to be in your friends list. I’m just keeping it one hundred. You see for many people, they want you to do better… just not better than them, and these people are people you know!! Those aren’t real friends. Anytime your growth or success makes a person insecure, jealous, or causes them not to support you as a friend, then that person was never really your friend. No worries though, it’s good that God is exposing them now rather than later. So, in closing I’m just going to say, quit putting on a show for people who don’t care, and stop looking for support from people who don’t want you to succeed. Again, not everyone in your friends list are like this, and you know who your real friends are, but for the other eighty to ninety percent, they don’t really care. They’re just here to be entertained, anyway you choose to entertain them. So, be cautious about what you choose to let these social media “friends” see. Not everything is everybody’s business! 💯
Oh, the joys of social media. Sometimes I’m like “Hey, there’s hope for humanity after all.” Then there are days when the trolls crawl from under whatever rock they were hiding beneath only to come to the internet and irritate the 🤬out of folks like mosquitoes. I was looking at a professional photographer’s work online. She works with newborns more so than any other age group. Now everybody who’s anybody knows, that all newborns do is eat, sleep and poop. So after admiring the woman’s work, I decided to take a trip to the comment section, like I always do, just to see what my fellow comrades think. Many people shared the same admiration that I did for the young woman’s photography skills and the beautiful new born babies, then low and behold, there was a troll. “I don’t like that the babies are sleeping in all the pics.” 🙄 Really woman?!! Newborns literally sleep all day and torture their parents all night! They’ll literally sleep through a marching band at that age! Some people can’t just find the good in things or give a decent compliment, they always have to find something wrong. Then another troll complained about the background in one photo, which was a beautiful picture of clouds. This woman had the nerve to hate on the clouds! I mean, gee wiz lady! What did the clouds do to you. She probably go outside and look up at the clouds and frown, then go back inside because no clouds are in there. 😐 Lord why? 🤦🏾♀️Why must some people live their lives turning something positive into a negative. They’re missing the point, Jesus! Lord have mercy. We all have our opinions, but in the words of my mother, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.” Anyway, that’s my daily vent for today. Have you ever experienced something like this? Let’s have a prayer meeting about it, because some of these people are crazy and for some it’s a cry for attention. You know some people get off by ticking people off. 🤷🏾♀️What y’all think?
