How to deal with negative people & things

Have you ever had someone tell you something completely rude? Have you ever had a rude coworker? I can raise my hands for both. Another thing is that when I see what awful things are happening in this world, I hurt. We’re allowed to get our feelings hurt from rude people, and we’re allowed to be sad from the world issues.

 But how do I stay positive??

Rude people:

Whenever people get sarcastic with me or just flat out rude, I take a second to breathe and try to understand why they’re acting this way toward me. Trust me that reaction of mine didn’t happen overnight. I had to work on being still during a moment like that. I work in retail, so when I have a customer give me attitude or just being rude I try to find out the issue and try my best to fix it. If you can’t help someone then you’ll have to know that it’s okay and you tried. You’re not responsible for people’s unhappiness so don’t take it personal.
One thing I was taught years ago was to not judge anyone or assume anything because you never know what their day/life is like. I take every opportunity (the best I can) to shine some light. Remember no one is perfect and even we have our bad days. I’m not going to lie, when there’s just no way that a person will be nice I just tell myself “This is God’s daughter/son and he loves them so I need to show some love no matter what.”

When bad things happen:

Yes, we all deserve to be sad or upset whenever something bad happens. I had a crappy day last week where I just got so tired of struggling and seeing other people struggle that I just wanted to cry. Instead, I took a few deep breaths and told myself it could be way worse and God will help me and us through this. I’m always blessed to have a healthy family, a roof over my head, and a job I love so things will be okay. When I see bad things happen around the world it hurts my heart and it makes me angry and sad. I think so many people make decisions based on what they want and what’s best for them that they just forget about everything and everyone else in the world. Y’all I honestly get sad when I hear that trash is in the sea and it’s bad for turtles. I wasn’t kidding when I said things make me sad. The only thing we can do is our best and that’s it. One person can’t change the world, but if everyone does the best they can the world will be fabulous!

Get to know me | 15 interesting facts about me 

Hey y’all! I wanted to do a 15 facts about me post so that y’all could get to know more about me and what I like! I already did an about me post, but I didn’t go into much detail. I hope y’all love this longer version!

1. When I first started driving I couldn’t wear shoes or jewelry, i felt like it distracted me!

2. I love art and science! If I could replace math with those 2 I’d be perfect in school. I’ve drawn and painted since I was a kid.

3. I suffer with ADD, but not as much as I use to. I’ve cut out a lot of sugar in my diet and it helped a ton.

4. I’d rather walk barefoot but since that’s socially unacceptable I always prefer sandals haha! But I do walk barefoot in my yard/house.

5. I hate having unpainted nails! I feel like they were made to have color on them haha. I also hate painting them myself because I’m a mess at it.

6. I’ve had this pillow case that’s a specific color and fabric since I was a child! When I need a new one I have to hunt that exact color and fabric down. I also hate when people lay on it haha! I know that sounds crazy.

7. I hate cleaning. If I clean I like to have a YouTube or song in the background or someone has to help cuz I get distracted or bored with it. If I ever clean on my own it’s cuz I have a huge burst of energy.

8. I have to sleep with a fan on and wear shorts to bed. No matter how cold it is!

9. When I go on down on escalators I have to go second if I’m with someone because I feel like I’ll fall down and when I’m going up I have to go first so I don’t feel like I’ll fall backwards.

10. I’m allergic to red apples. Specifically red (I know that’s weird) or any type of all natural juice. If I think about a juice cleanse- Can’t ever try it. My throat gets itchy and I start coughing or closes up until I take a Benadryl.

11. I hate taking pictures of myself (I know, who would think a blogger would hate pictures) but I’m never one to say “let’s take a selfie” or anything like that. But I do it for fun for the blog #doitfortheblog

12. I love listening to violin covers of songs.

13. I have never lived without a cat or dog.

14. I hate vanilla scented things, they make me nauseous.

15. I use to want to be a fashion designer. (I had a sketch book filled with drawings forever)
