Why are people so _____________!     You fill in the blank.

 There are so many words that could be placed there:  silly, stupid, mean, condescending, jealous, irritable, negative, happy, outrageous, dumb, infuriating, pushovers, afraid, crazy…….just to name a few.


Now, in thinking up your own words, I’m sure there are people in YOUR life that immediately came to mind.   There are those in our lives that wound or hurt us, and then there are those in our lives that enrich us, and make us feel good!

Well, since I am an avid fan on Pinterest, I have come across some great quotes, and I thought I would share some of them.  Life really is too short to let negative destructive people impact our lives. Here are a few:

“You can’t live a positive life with a negative mind”

“Life is too short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you”



 “Holding on to anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die”

“Someone who hates you normally hates you for three reasons:  They either see you as a threat, they hate themselves, or they want to be you”


“Jealousy is the art of counting someone else’s blessings instead of your own”

And lastly:

What type of person do you have in your life that is negatively impacting you?  Can you make a change?  Are they friends perhaps you should let go?  Put them at an arms distance?  Perhaps it is family members.  Family is trickier, because you can’t let go of family.  Family is forever, and honestly?  We need to LOVE our families.  But what if some of those words written up top apply to them?


Prayer works.  NOT prayer for them, but prayer for yourself, that you would be able to love, no matter how someone else behaves towards you.I have removed all the poisonous people from my life.  You cannot retain your own health, if you have negative people clinging on to you.  However, I have some tricky family.  Some of them don’t even LIKE me.  (Shocking huh!)  They are jealous and insecure, and try to poison me with their negativity and dirty looks.  It doesn’t work though – all it does is make me feel extreme pity towards them.  After all, THEY are the ones who are experiencing the negative emotions in being so obviously hateful. 

In my opinion, jealousy is one of the worst emotions ever.  It will suck the life out of the person experiencing it, and make them miserable about everything, and every one.  You will NEVER be able to experience joy, if you suffer from jealousy.  STOP PEOPLE!  Realize that life is full of choices, and being jealous or envious is a BAD choice.  It will lead to sickness, because it’s our emotions that make us sick.


So, for all those people in my life that are obviously hateful towards me – please know that I will continue to LOVE you, and PRAY for you, because it’s YOU who are slowly being poisoned, and it is obvious that poison is building inside of you.  What is on the inside…shows on the outside. 

Oh, here’s two more of my favorite quotes:  (again, found it on Pinterest)

“Fight all your battles on your knees, and you win EVERY time”

“To do list:  1) Buy a sword, 2) Name it kindness,  3) Kill people with kindness”

I aim to WIN!

Dear God, please continue to help me to love others, and love those who hate me – ESPECIALLY  my own family.  Give me eyes to see the best in people, and a heart that forgives the worst.
