Dealing with Disappointment in People: Its really about you

When people show you who they are, believe them. It’s so easy to be wrapped up in an idealized version of a person. If you’re anything like me, when new and exciting people come around, if you have a connection with them, it’s easy to practically obsess over them. You get enthusiastic about telling your friends and family about this amazing new person in your life. They have an edge. They bring something new into your life. This is a wonderful and exhilarating feeling.  But keep your eyes open, dear one. Don’t get so excited and wrapped up in the idea of the person that you lose sight of a few key points.

If it feels too good to be true, chances are that it is. I’m not saying that everyone is fake, false, or a perpetrator *insert Drake-Fake Love lyrics.* I’m also not saying guard your heart and don’t let anyone in *insert Drake -No New Friends lyrics.* I am simply saying people are people. No one is perfect and they may hurt you unintentionally. But having an understanding of yourself and others will help limit suffering disappointments and victimizing. A Bad bitch is open to others and also aware.

If you keep your eyes open, learn about the people you let in, and use discernment, then when the bad things come out, or disappointing situations happen you will not be blind sighted. You will not have them on a pedestal on your life, puffing them up to be something they may not be. You may be elevating a person because they fill a void in your life. This is a slippery slope as it is important for a bad bitch to be complete within herself, and not constantly looking for others to make her happy. If you are complete and whole, you can have clarity if things goes amiss. In life, there will always be upsetting situations. Something will always go wrong at one point or another, and in relationship there will always be ups and downs. The key is to realize that your happiness can not lie within another person.  Open your eyes and your heart. Walk through life fearlessly. Be mindful of those you have around you. Maintain your strength and importance of self. Most importantly, Love yourself.
