The POISON We Create

About a week ago, a good friend and I were having a late night convo. She's one of those friends you take your problems to, vent them to the high heavens with no judgement on their part. THOSE kinds of friends are seriously the best! Anyways, there I was venting out my "to the high heavens", and she gave the best advice I could ever receive heard elsewhere.

It's like YOU'RE drinking the poison, but waiting for THEM to die.

And then, it all made sense. I literally was poisoning my life, my family, my world by dredging on things going on, knowing I couldn't control them, or better yet - people are going to do stupid things all the time.

So what to do? Well, like the quote says, if I'm going to drink the poison, then I'm only hurting myself internally by stewing about it. And stewing means your attitude changes, and THAT effects other facets of your life as well. BUT, if I don't drink the poison, then...I'm literally letting it go.

How hard is that? Well, very. I am human. And my personality is the type to remember those things. But, when phrased like I'm killing myself while they continue life like la-la-la...um, well, then the joke is on me. And that sucks.

I hope this reaches out to anyone stressing their life out with unnecessariness. It happens. It's real. We create it. We mold it. We embellish it. We sometimes even see things that aren't there. Stop. Think about it. Stop whatever it is you're doing to create the poison and getting you to drink it. It's not easy. But it's worth it!! Peace will come. Give it a few days. Heck, a few weeks. It's worth it!! And P.S. - so are you!

Suck out the poison...and keep...moving...forward!!

  1. I definitely agree with you Tammy. Although it is difficult to do. I always say to myself none of it will matter in 100 years.

  2. So much truth here. If someone's done you wrong, why give them the power to keep hurting you?
