I have my hands in many different projects: novel series, memoir, music, my column, social media and blogging—there are other things I am brainstorming but let’s stay focused on what’s important…my writing. As I sat in front of this blank document, well, let me rephrase, as I was laying in bed thinking of what to write my ideas began to flow so now I’m sitting in front of this document writing as I type. It’s almost midnight which means it’s going to be a long night for me. I learned my lesson on not to promise a set of posts because I assumed I would have them all written but I don’t. Please forgive me…ha-ha! My head is in so many different directions that it’s time for me to tie down and focus on my BOOKS but part of me can’t abandon my blog…like ever! Continue reading to see what I am opening up about in this post with tips on how to help when you find yourself dealing with negative people.
Never allow others to dim your sparkle. Regardless of who they are, or in better words, who they think they are-Paul Travis
At first I was weary of what I wanted to share but something inside said “Paul, don’t overthink. You’re allowed to share your truth. Screw what they will think. You have a voice, use it.”
I am not writing this in a petty way but in a truthful way—if it were petty the energy I would put into this wouldn’t be worth it. I don’t have a filter. I never have, never will. It is what it is. I am who I am. That’s the truth. Take it or leave it. I am writing this to share with others on how I handled things vs. what I learned during the process.
As I was laying in bed I began to think of some negative situations I encountered to write about and how I handled them: some not so pretty and others not very bad—either way I don’t regret what I did…or said. That’s a lie I regret one thing and you’ll find out. I made a list below of a FEW situations I encountered—because I’ve encountered a lot—that showed me the true colors of people (which is helping me write a serious juicy memoir LOL) and each situation will share my reaction in a shortened version on how I behaved along with my thoughts.
A lot? I know. But that is only 10 percent of the drama that occurred in my life. Even though I could have handled things differently in some situations because I’m not an angry person. I don’t feel like I would do anything different. I don’t regret standing up for myself. I always took action for my wrongs and I apologize when necessary. I’m not perfect. Being older now and having gained life experience I tend to handle things a lot more differently, though. I don’t waste my energy on nonsense.
