Can Mama B be real with you?
There was once a time where peoples’ opinions mattered to me. I wrote a plural possessive because it was true. I allowed people to rule my life. My well-being was a cacophony of opinions that did not matter in the end. I was afraid of being hated by people but at what cost to my own sanity? I was lost because I did not use my voice.
REAL TALK: There will be people in your life, in your circle who wish for your demise. There are people who are toxic and only bring negativity.
My advice: Make sure to hear YOUR voice. Eliminate the leeches that suck the life out of you. Shake the dust off your feet. Seek advice from the people who give your tough love and have character that you gravitate towards.
I will admit: Your friend list may be smaller but that is not a bad thing. Have a quality of friends than a cacophony quantity of instability. Also, make sure to hear your own voice too
