Something happened this week that shook me to my core.
I unfriended people on FB and all hell broke loose.
Apparently if you break ‘virtual ties’ with someone, you are giving them permission to unleash the kraken on your ass!!!!
Strange thing is that I didn’t unfriend them after the messages. I unfriended them before the messages!
If you are on my personal or business FB page and NEVER SHOW UP in any shape or form I take that as a cue that you aren’t exactly engaged in me, my life or my business.
And that is 100% ok and your prerogative.
I deleted over 60 people.
Nothing malicious intended. Just a pure and simple hygiene ritual that went horribly wrong!!!
3 people came out of the woodwork questioning my motivations, my character and integrity.
What hurt me even more than the messages and insinuations, was that I had thought I was actually on friendly terms with these people.
I certainly didn’t think they would take me deleting them from my ‘virtual’ world as an opportunity to sever our relationship in the ‘real’ world!
But, sadly, that is exactly what has happened.
So, be careful when it comes to who you allow in your life and seek out those who are living the kind of life that you want to live.
And remember this:
The line between nice and weak is really freakin thin!
This experience made me feel like my power was taken away. I felt ‘emotionally’ held hostage.
Fact. My energy is best used elsewhere and I AM NOT ‘sport’ for anyone or anything!
What I AM is passionate about helping women make their dreams a reality, so that they never feel trapped.
I am passionate about helping women build their legacy and create businesses that breath LIFE into them each and every day.
I am also passionate about being a good friend in the virtual and real world!
My advice (it may be hard to believe):
Always try to believe the best about people. Yes, I know… I know…even after this crazy nightmare, I try to live my life believing people are genuinely good and have the best of intentions.
Sometimes I’m wrong. But most times I am right.
So, go big! Don’t hide!
Do epic sh*t and give yourself to permission to be judged AND to only surround yourself with people who fan your flame! – on and off FB!
