I was absolutely overwhelmed by the huge response to a recent social media post and wanted to share on the blog as well.
I’m a little angry. Something I have been feeling and noticing has to be expressed.
Why does a successful and good life cause people to treat us differently?
I’m only writing this because I know many of you out there can relate.
I’ve manifested myself a good life. But it comes with consequences. I’ve noticed success or a good life makes others uncomfortable. People now either treat me way better OR care less about my feelings – because they think I won’t notice or care. Why does my business, success or where I travel have anything to do with the person I am? They separate.
People now associate me with what I do/with my career. Without realising I’m still the exact same person with the same feelings. Sometimes I feel I can’t even tell people amazing parts about my life because I fear it will make them feel inadequate. I try to avoid making them feeling threatened by my life. That’s ridiculous. And I’ve actually decided to have nothing to do with people who can’t celebrate others success and the good in my own life. Because I’m confident in how able I am to be happy for others, always. And supportive of everyone I know. I’ll do anything for anyone. I’m confident in how I always manage to do the right thing.
People think “I have it all” and I’m just a young spoilt girl. No, I’ve worked damn hard on a personal and business level. Damn hard. No one sees the hard work because it happens behind the scenes.
Jealousy makes people mean. I have close people to me who don’t make any effort or show support with my work. They can’t even ask me about my life because it must threaten them or they think I don’t need/notice their support. No, I still have feelings. The same feelings I had before I turned my life around. And I still need support regardless of the numbers on social media. I still have sad, bad and insecure days myself – regardless of how many people follow my Instagram account.
My social media following or book success shouldn’t change how people treat me. People are either over polite or damn rude.
Success gives people a reason to talk behind your back – because it makes their insecurities less painful.
Please let’s remember to never assume anything about anyone. We don’t know what someone is going through. We can’t judge over social media. Social media is such a small snippet of someone’s world.
I promise to never judge or be quick to assume anything or anyone over social media.
And I promise to always support all of you to the best of my ability. And celebrate your success! You can count on me for that! I only write a blog with the intention to support and inspire my community to live the best life. That won’t change. And that’s all I’m here to do.
