Be Careful who you choose to help. Some folks are only looking out for themselves, and they are willing to do or say anything to receive what they believe they should have. I have learned the hard way several times and yet it wasn’t until recently that I honestly learned my lesson.
I will put my needs above anyone else’s. I will placed myself first. If helping you does not benefit me, then my answer will be no. If attempting to make your life easier, will make mine harder by default, then the answer is no. I used to be scared of if I said No, will I make this person mad but now… who the hell cares! They will surely get over it, and move on to the next ‘victim’. I am not a punching bag for those who need something, nah. That’s done.
Remember, don’t go out of your way for people, who wouldn’t cross the street for you.
Think for yourself.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been friends with folks, or thought I was friends with folks, and they switch up. Since I spend the majority of my time at work, thats where most of my interactions take place. I know I have to stop using the word, ‘friends’, with these people but its my go to word. These people are NOT my friends, they are just people whom I like well enough to pass the time with while at work. To be fair, there are a handful, five, of people who are genuine human beings, but the rest, nope.
I am cordial to EVERYONE! Even if you are not someone who I deal with, or like personally, I will still greet you. Now if I greet you and you fail to respond, your done. I do not need to kiss anyone’s ass to make them like me, I love me and thats more than enough. I have my moments where I can be petty but I don’t feel the need to bring that side out unless you need a reality check about who I am.
I can be cool with you and your friend not be cool with me. Thats ok. Its none of my concern, the friendship you have with them over there. If you have no issue with me, and I none with you, you can still Kiki with me. Its not causing no static with that other friend. Get to know me for yourself! Your friend could just be a hater, cuz Im doing my thing, staying in my own lane, while trying to branch into others. So Eff your friend, and matter fact Eff you too.
Im one of the coolest chicks you’d ever meet. You’re replaceable, I’m NOT!
