You are going to come across negative people in all aspects of your life, no matter where you go, your career aspirations, school, in the work place but the most disheartening place to find negative people is in your home. Home, we feel it is a place where everyone feels welcome. Your family encourages you to be better and to overcome obstacles in your life, instead, we run into family members who end up being the obstacles in life, holding us back from so much. We express our feelings, we are deemed as weak. We share our goals, we are showing off. We share our happiness, they think you are better than them. All we ever look for is support, encouragement and motivation to get further in life, instead we get the total opposite and it breaks us down eventually. Sometimes, we come to ask ourselves, how come those who are closest to us, end up breaking us down? Why don’t they encourage us? Some say, they are using reverse psychology on you, to encourage you. Some will say, they are jealous of what you will be able to accomplish with your skills. No matter what it is, these people, family members are not really an important aspect of your life if they hold you back, if they hold you down.
Look to encourage yourself from their negativity and accomplish what you’ve dreamed. Look to move on with your life with their words and use it as coal to fuel your fire, to build a fortress high enough, so they can see you standing tall. Don’t allow negative people to occupy a vacant space that is too expensive to rent in your head. The only thing should occupy your mind, to occupy that space, is your goals and aspirations and how you want to accomplish it in life. Your family is always going to say negative things to you. They will always look to bring you down but you are neither what they say of you or what they think of you. You are everything you think you will be and what you think you will be, is someone who is relevant in what matters most. You are everything Allah subhana wata’ala has created you for and gifted to you, talents and abilities. Negative people, no matter who it be, family, friends, enemies, are only a minor set back for a major come back in life. If they have brought you down, tore you down from going towards your goals and dreams, it has only been a temporary phase which developed a much stronger version of yourself, that is it, nothing more.
Negative people, those who say things to bring you down, only say things because it is a reflection of themselves. They are afraid of you. A strong minded, capable individual, who they wish they could become. Deep down, they envy everything you are today and everything you will become. You are what they wish they could be, so take it as a compliment and don’t let it affect your way of life.
