Surviving Malicious Gossip

Standard

Gossip

 

I will keep my head up and when my chin starts drooping, I will slap it back into location.

 

When their words fly darts of Pit Bull viciousness, I will smile in my heart because I know even if  he is silent, my God sees everything.

 

Even when the temptation to respond raises quick like the cheetah out for a meal, I bite my tongue to keep my storm at bay.

 

I am encouraged by the words of the Good Book, I  find comfort in knowing that nothing is wrong with me because scores attack.

 

Attack with their matching red coated armies  because I decide to wait for sex. It is my decision and if I perhaps  change course in the future, it is still my decision.

 

So I live to raise another day because of the mercies of God not to rage holy war with anyone but to live peacefully with all men.

 

Not because I am afraid because I have two blood mix that can shut down these fool but because God has done a number on my heart.

 

I am not cantankerous, needy and hiding under a cloak of much needed attention (that is the issue with many motor mouths), so quarrelling does not appeal to my nature.

 

May God deal with them.


 

Prompt Stomp Week 14: Survival

 

Change

Standard

Sometimes I am afraid of change not because of fear for the task ahead

But because of my comfort of a habit.

A comfort of staying in what I know as oppose to cross over the line of the unknown.

I stayed in infectious romantic relationships too long because of my tendency to hold on.

Now that I am looking at it, I was holding on too falling straws just like Mr. Piggy’s house.

Experiences taught me when the red flags come, do not feel with my heart but let my head do the talking.

I say to you reading, when you see the red flag MOVE into action. When you stay you give the deceiver more grounds to convince of their green pasture when it is a mess of rotten decaying habits underneath.

Its ok, if the cloudy murk of life gets darker over the horizon at first. Life is not all about dazzling sunsets/sunrise all the time.

Embrace the change, free your mind of clutter. Let your brain breathe sanely again.

Ignore the naysers who want you to stay in an unhealthy environment. Cut them off if they will not quit their tirade for you to stay.

If your break up is with family, it is one of the hardest blows. But ask yourself “are they willing to move mountains for me as I do for them?”

Let that question guide you, family is a support system, if you are not breaking the law or disrespectful to them, why do you tolerate their constant breaking of your spirit. You let them continue and you will be swimming in a sea of decaying cesspool. Your mind and heart will play a game of Tom and Jerry until you explode in insanity.

If your workplace atmosphere is cantankerous and calmly talking to individuals including supervisors does not help, as soon as you get another position MOVE.

When you stay in mess, you become a mess and messy people most times do messy things.

How long before you snap, breaking your fragile twig mental capacity into a flood of no return.

Embrace change before it is too late.

Its Warms My Heart #9: Hold On

Mount EVerest

I want to reach out to you dear reader who feel like Mount Everest left Nepal to settle on your shoulders and  your knees feel sore from fall after fall trying to get that Mt. off your shoulders. Keep climbing  even when you slip, I am climbing invisibly next to you . I am dragging myself up that mountain as well and if I slip or you slip again, we can pull up each other. Do not listen to the people who whisper tales about “how far down the mountain you are and you will never make, anytime soon.” Tell that person “then I will die trying,” and continue walking. So zip your coat higher, get some more water, tighten up these shoes, we are climbing Mount Everest to the top!
