What do you do when people will not give you a second chance? In today’s world everyone is more concerned about labels than how a person can benefit from positive feed back. We all need to be encouraged in this world if we are to do the best that we possibly can. But, if we are always getting negative feedback about the things we are doing wrong… given a cold shoulder or talked about the things we have done in our past instead of looking at things in a new perspective, it feeds on our negative thoughts and actions.
Everybody deserves a second chance. Not only that, we must know that the world will accept us for who we are now not who we were in the past.
To get pass the feeling of your past circumstances and obviously how people label you this is what I suggest:
1. Know that you are definitely not your circumstance. What happened in the past should stay in the past and those that are dwelling on your past it’s their problem not yours. What you need to do is move on with your life.
2. Not everyone is going to like you, not everyone is going to be your friend, not everyone is going in your direction of travel. That’s okay, travel by yourself for a while until you figure things out.
3. Don’t expect the same people to be your friend that wants were. This will show you who you can depend on and who you cannot. And keep in mind that this is a clean up session. You do not want anyone with you that cannot encourage, uplift, and be by your side when the going gets tough. It’s a great eye opener indeed and a test of your friendship.
4. You’ve heard this saying, “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” Get off the self pity, get off the nobody cares about you, get off the train that is taking you nowhere. Get on the path that’s going to lead you in the right direction, the one that will take you places beyond your highest expectations, the one that’s going to put your life back on track. Learn how to adapt with what you have in your life now.
Life is not meant to be perfect. Everyone makes mistakes. But the thing is knowing what you want out of life and not letting anyone derail you from your goals and aspirations. It is very important to block out all the negativity you were accustomed to in the past; find new friends find a new place to live, and stay away from what caused your past situation. You’ve got to get-up-and-get going. No one is going to do this for you, you have to do it for yourself. Once you learn that you can accomplish just one little, tiny task you can accomplish anything you put your mind to. Change your mindset once and for all!
People are always going bring up your past, they’re always going to point out the things that you did that were unpleasant, they’re always going to point out things they don’t approve of, but it’s up to you to stand firm, get your life straight, and let them know that you are not the person you used to be! You are stronger, powerful, and you can handle anything that comes your way.
You got this!
