I recently saw this quote on one of my social media feeds and I instantly saved it. What drew my attention was, “…you can go through things, still hold your head high and come out on top ALL while looking like you never went through anything in your life.” This resonated with me because I know I look nothing like what I have been through.
It is quite surprising to know the pain and difficulty I have gone through in my 20’s and I am still here and learning from it all. I have had disappointments, downfalls, and dead ends, but I am here and I am stronger than I have ever felt before. Of course, I think about if this feeling will end or what’s going to happen next, but I have to remind myself to continue to look up and remember that having a spirit of fear is nonexistent.
Now as for the haters, I tend to think that I do not have any, but even if I do, hopefully they will be able to learn a thing or two if they decide to remain focused on me and what I am accomplishing and apply it to their lives. However, if you are in fact having issues with so called haters, I have learned it is best to remain focused on your destination. To be a hater is almost the same as the enemy and the enemy is always trying to deter you from becoming your best because they have failed to rise to the expectations they have set for themselves. They may talk about you, begin rumors, or try to discourage you from moving forward with your goals, which is why you must be careful who you share your dreams and your passion with. You never know, your enemy may be a phone call away, in the next office, or maybe even in your church…they can be anywhere!
Regardless of who those haters are and wherever they seem to lurk, take pride in yourself knowing that you are headed to the top. Be confident and embrace that you look like you never went through anything in your life!
