A lot of people have gone through a lot of things both good and bad. Many people end up depressed because they received no support from their family and friends. I wanted to write about this issue. I know it can be difficult to deal with, but remember one thing; this is your life and it belongs to no one but you. It’s a good feeling when people acknowledge your accomplishments and let you know they’re proud of you or when someone is there for you when you’re going through troubled times. However, a lot of people don’t have this type of support. One thing I learned years ago is that because of who people are, some aren’t able to be happy for others. In my life whatever I do or have done, I did it for me and that’s the bottom line support or no support. There won’t always be support for you and you can’t let it get you down.
When people can’t say congratulations or be happy for you, it’s not you, it’s them. Some people can’t be happy for others because they are allowing jealousy, envy, and that ole hater’s spirit to interfere. This happens because some people aren’t happy with who they are or where they are in life. It affects their ability to be genuinely happy for others or for them to be there for others. Life goes on and you can’t let people cause you to lose your drive or your joy; it belongs to you NOT anyone else.
The same goes for when you’re going through and no one is there for you. Some people don’t want to be bothered with anyone else when they themselves are going through, because they’re too caught up in their own troubles. A lot of people don’t understand when an individual is there for others it can oftentimes help deal with their own problems. Some people are just plain selfish, but the fact of the matter is; if you don’t get support you must keep on striving. Don’t expect it; this way if you get it great and if you don’t it won’t affect you. You must be able to stand on your own and oftentimes that means standing alone.
I encourage you to be strong! Don’t let the actions of others dampen your spirit. If you do; it means you’ve given power to others allowing them to affect your ability to be the best you that you can be! When people give their power to others they sometimes lose confidence and faith in self. Never allow this to happen to you. There are plenty of people who can’t seem to function without the support of other people. These types of people often have difficulty functioning in life. Your life belongs to you and no matter how much people say they love you they won’t always support you or show happiness for what you’re doing or for what you’ve done. No matter the case, don’t let it rock your world, keep on keeping on!!
