WHEN WE TRY TO FIGURE PEOPLE OUT, WE GET NOWHERE
I had an instance yesterday that just made me take a pause and remember a sort of "resolution" that I made to myself on the 1st of the year. After being hit with a few strange behaviors by people all in a row, I just committed to not trying to delve into people's heads. I used to do it often, try to get to the root of someone's actions and understand why they would have done what they've done (which is usually something to hurt me when I've done nothing to them). And you know what? I got my answer. IT'S NOT ME, IT'S THEM.
What I have come to realize that is when you are a good person and you show loyalty, you care, you help, and you show up, you are doing all the right things. You are thriving, growing, dreaming and achieving. So many of you are rocking it in business or are just on the cusp of doing something new and great and that's what counts- being present, being a great friend, partner, mom and otherwise.
What you do says everything about you, and what someone else does only says everything about them. Remember that. Please.
So there you go. Print it out if you have to and recall it whenever you have one of those "what the heck" moments. Breathe it in and move on- you've got too much to do.
