As Juvenile as it might sound to use the word ‘haters’ time and time again it just boils down to that. Have you ever noticed that no matter how happy you might be with yourself on any particular day there is always someone out there trying extremely hard to bring you down. I try to take the utmost respect towards other females as well as males. If I see something that is worth commending I am going to give respect when respect is due. How horrific is it that we live in a world where someone pays a compliment and you see the face of the person complimented turn in utter confusion. That is what we have come to. From common courtesy such as opening doors for one another, to telling someone that their hair looks absolutely fabulous. What is really going on today? I am not one to be messed with when the time calls for me to defend myself or my territory. Yet when a compliment or a common gesture of decency is due I do not hesitate to pay it.
A very famous actress spoke these words;
“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.”
We know her today as -Audrey Hepburn.
These words could not be more accurate. Have you ever noticed an individual can be beautiful or gorgeous on the outside, yet they can in a split second display or speak words that leave you with utter disgust. You can revert back to the words of Audrey Hepburn. One does not have to be absolutely beautiful on the outside because the words or actions that one displays from within can leave others positively stunned. I have noticed that the most beautiful women’s beauty is not solely skin deep. They walk with poise, speak kindness and a sense of humbleness can be seen in their eyes. I have run into beautiful women, yet their actions define them as children* and their words define them as putrid*. There is a line I feel relates to this;
‘When I was a child I spoke as a child, I thought as a child, I understood as a child. When I became a man (woman) I put away childish things!’
Surprisingly enough for those of us who are aware we were not born in the Holy Land, that was 1 Corinthians 13:11.
It however, is so real. I mean lets get real. When are some of us going to grow up and just be happy for others around us. I mean goodness gracious. If you buy property I am going to congratulate you whether it is a studio up to a single family home. I am going to congratulate just the same. It is an accomplishment! If you get a new hair cut I am going to notice it just the same. And if a total stranger happens to be in the elevator with me and her shoes are ‘stylin’ I am going to let her know! I just do not understand at what point in time some of us are going to revert back to what our mothers and fathers
SHOULD HAVE taught us.
‘If you don’t have something nice to say DO NOT say anything at all’
It is actually really simple baby!
I can not piece the puzzle together as to why some individuals are so unhappy with their rotting lives that they have to attempt to rot away at others. They have to go out of their pathetic little way to attempt to plant a worm in someone elses apple. Can they not just let others enjoy their accomplishments, happiness and their own success?
At what point in time does one stop speaking as a child, understanding as a child, thinking as a child and start putting away childish things?
