Working through Adversity

I have always said that everything I have gone through has made me the person I am. That means all the good and all the bad. I find myself thinking of that through tough times. My motto is actually helping me through! Yes, things are tough, but imagine who you'll be when you come out the other side!

I'm in several different situations right now where I am in contact with negative, venomous people. I have to make it through without letting them break me. Unhappy people often become bullies, wanting to make everyone around them as miserable as they are. It's not going to work on me!

Instead, I have a network of wonderful creative souls who I can draw from at any time. I find shelter in their love, their energy. If the bullies are pecking away at my armour (as they love to do), I just retreat, I strengthen, and I resist their attacks.

So why stay around such people-- the bullies I mean. Because sometimes in life that's the way it is. Sometimes you have to be around people like that at a job, sometimes even in your own home. As far as I can see, that's ok, because of my motto. I'm not a glutton for punishment, though, I do limit interaction. But when there is interaction, I come through it stronger, more resolved.
