Have you found that there are people who will never allow you to be happy. They always find some way to pour water on your fire no matter what? The simple thing to do would be to just cut those people out of your life. Sometimes however, it’s not that easy, especially if those people are close family members. I try to put as much space/distance as possible between myself and those individuals but it doesn’t always work. I need to get to a place where I can just let it roll off my shoulders.
I’m learning how to put myself first and not allow others to use passive aggressive ways to try to make me feel guilty about that. At the end of the day everyone has to lead their own lives and you can’t depend on anyone for your happiness. Do what you can to help others but your happiness should be numero uno. If you are not happy how can you take care of others or foster happiness in others?
I’m starting to realize maybe those people are not happy themselves. Maybe what is said about misery liking company is true and that’s probably the major reason they try to want to put a damper on your happiness.
How do I deal with that behavior? I take a break from those people for a while. I don’t feed into the negativity. I also try not have arguments or back and forth conversations with them.
How do you handle such behavior towards you from others?

I’ve decided that this month October, 2017 will be my month of renewal. Shedding the old and exploring the new and reviving some of the thoughts I’ve had by putting them into practice. I’m born anew over and over again. My metamorphosis is not always complete hopefully this time I will not stay in the cocoon to long nor get out to soon and evolve renewed, refreshed, and wholly complete. I have realized that even when it seems like everything in life is conspiring against you, the Universe is aligning things in your favor.
“You attract to you the predominant thoughts that you’re holding in your awareness, whether those thoughts are conscious or unconscious.” That’s the rub.” – Michael Bernard Beckwith

At the end of my current trip, upon my return to the US of A I will be laying down roots for a while. I’ll still be traveling out of the country but only for short periods of time. I’m also going to take the opportunity to explore the state of Georgia. My sister N told me the reason I think I don not like Georgia is because I haven’t given it a chance. I am going to give it a chance.
Unfortunately this means some of my travel plans for the remainder of the year have been cancelled. I will probably only visit Spain and Scotland this summer. My adventure to the African continent has been postponed to a future date (not yet scheduled). I am happy about these new plans because I want and need to be close to my parents right now. I will be within walking distance and I think that will serve us well. I shall still try to maintain my minimalist lifestyle and will be blogging about the move, setting up house, everyday life and exploring the state of Georgia among other things.
Please continue to follow my blog as I enter this new phase of life.
(This is not not my car in the driveway, I will be purchasing one by the end of the year hopefully)
