I am a whole lot of things. Too many things at times. But if there is one thing I’m NOT, it’s fake. I’m not fake by a longshot. And sometimes, this works against me… but I’m not changing it. If I don’t rock with you, I don’t rock with you. This doesn’t change when we get in front of people. It doesn’t change at church. It doesn’t change when we are with mutual friends. It just doesn’t.
I made up my mind that in 2018, I’m not gonna tolerate fake people. You’re either gonna be who you really are, or you won’t be in my space. I’d rather have 10 real enemies than one fake friend. Why? Because at least I know where my enemies stand.
There comes a point in life when you have to protect yourself. You have to guard your heart and mind. You have to protect your peace and sanity. You can’t keep people around you just because they’re pretending to be your friend. It’s true that no weapon formed against you will prosper. It’s also true that being connected to the wrong people can and will cause unnecessary warfare and stress.
We will convince ourselves that we don’t see what we KNOW we really do see. We’ll convince ourselves that people are really “good at heart” and that they are just “acting out” or “going through something”. But at the end of the day, you have to make up in your mind that you are not going to allow fake people into your inner circle… PERIOD.
Wanna know how I deal with fake people? I don’t. I love them, I wish them the absolute best… but I REFUSE to deal with them. I don’t eat fake food. I don’t drink fake water. I don’t inhale fake air. I’m not gonna surround myself with fake people. I encourage you to evaluate your circle and make the necessary adjustments quickly. Your next move will thank you for it!
Have an amazing day today. Show love to yourself AND others. Be GREAT! I speak life to you and everyone and everything connected to you! Catch me tomorrow!
