RAISING AWARENESS FOR HIV/AIDS.

"Self Fulfilling Prophecy"

I had a fairly deep phone conversation yesterday that hadn’t actually hit me until this morning. I won’t name any names, but the person on the other end of the line is someone who I barely know, but seems to believe they know all there is to know about me.

I didn’t know it at the time, but as I foolishly shared my sincere feelings with this person, they were using that info in an attempt to psycho-analyze me.

As mad as that made me, I can only blame myself. See, I’m the one at fault for trusting this stranger with my own emotions. That is 100% my own error and something I’ll learn from moving forward.

I’ve spent most of this morning/afternoon reminding myself of a few key principles which have helped me throughout my life and, more specifically, in getting over this particular situation. So, below are some of the more important ones I thought I’d share… enjoy’em y’all!

* Life is and will always be what you make of it. Each of us can either #RISE or fall based on our own individual self fulfilling prophecies.

* Be consistent, and more importantly, be the person you’ve always wanted to be. Act as if each moment is your last and you’ll design the legacy you’ve always desired.

* Life will continue to test your mettle, but only YOU can determine how those situations will be handled. To depend on the reactions of others to fulfill you is idiotic.

* Don’t waste time or energy attempting to figure out who others truly are. They’ll never show their true colors openly. The only way to every fully and truly understand is to witness them in the most emotionally delicate of moments. And, even then, they will safeguard themselves and hide as much as possible.
