Don’t Make an A$$ Out of You and Me

Hey Party People,

You know what they say when you assume. You make an ass out of you and me. Well, let’s not do that.

We often take what people do and what people say so personally. So and so didn’t accept my invite, or they didn’t respond to my text. 99% of the time it has nothing to do with you and everything to do with them. But we internalize it and we think we did something wrong, we’re not likeable, or that someone is mad at us. And most of the time that’s just not true.

We can never be certain about what is going on in other people’s lives or what they might be struggling with. So many of us put on a brave face or act like it’s all good when in reality we are broken inside. We spend our time trying to mask our feelings or our hurt instead of showing that we’re not ok. You don’t have to share with the world that you’re not ok, but those closest to you are a good start. Or maybe just say you’re going through something in your personal life. Many people are too shy to pry or they might offer an ear to listen or other support. You can choose to take that support or not, but at least you’ve shared that something is up, something isn’t ok/
