“How beautiful would it be if we could just see souls instead of bodies? To see love and compassion instead of curves.”
― Karen Quan
Hey love, Welcome back!
I am so excited to share this post just because I’ve been doing a lot of thinking. I have been through so much within the past few months and it has caused me to actually try to understand myself as a woman.
“Look around you. Everything changes. everything on this earth is in a continuous state of evolving, refining, improving, adapting, enhancing, and changing. You were not put on this earth to remain stagnant.” Dr. Steve Mataboli
These past few months, I have dealt with so much betrayal and mistreatment from people I would have never expected it from. People I have never done anything to but I have done many things from. And for a moment, I sat back a questioned why they would treat me that way. It was as if they went out of their way to do and say such hurtful things as if it was a vengeance. These are people who pretended that they actually cared about me. I went through so many emotions fighting myself on why a particular person would treat me like this. It’s like Satan himself sent this person to crush me and make me question me as a person.

How I was treated so bad, made me sit back and look at the growth that I have had. If older me had been presented with the situations I have gone through and still am my reaction would have been 100% different. The sad thing is, this person will not take accountability or acknowledge the way they’ve treated me. They’re just continuing on with this persona of being this amazing person who has no flaw in their bones and caring about treating everyone kindly. As much as I want to call their bluff my conscience keeps pulling me back and telling me no.

I’m just going to use that as fuel to continue to be better. It’s not fair but karma will come served on a silver platter. I’ve just been immersing myself into my craft and trying to focus. A while back I came across this article on signs of a mature person, and after the read, I was proud of myself for meeting these qualities. Below are the characteristics:
Being other centered
A Sense of wonder
You would be surprised how many people lack these qualities and I had to tell myself I need to stop seeing the “good” in these people and see them for who they are. I am continuously growing and I can’t take the people aren’t to the next level as much as I want to. Evolving is realizing that how you react to situations is more important and more of a representation of your character. Forgiveness is the next thing I am working on in order to continue to evolve. I look forward to who I become.
