I had a conversation with someone very close to me. This person has known me since I was a little girl and she’s watched me grow. I was just told that I didn’t have an opened mind because I have an answer for everything. Typically I would get offended in my mind and respond. I would cut a person off who was trying to tell me about myself. But this time I actually took everything in & didn’t say a word. She said that I needed to SHUT UP!!
I was told that my problem was that I always share my plans with the wrong people. Then I was told that after I share my plans, I get upset when someone has a negative opinion. Now I had to sit back & think about it & then she gave me an example. This was the realest reality check that I’ve gotten in a very long time & it was needed.
I’m just learning that everyone isn’t supposed to know my every move. Even if they’ve asked me what I’ve been doing. I also made a commitment to myself that I’m going to start listening more this year. I often do have an answer for everything because I’ve experienced so much in my life. I often do get offended when someone who I don’t talk to speaks on my life or decisions. But I know that they heard it from someone else who I shared something with. So that’s a lesson learned.
This is all apart of growing. Everything that we go through is trial & error. I also don’t think that it’s cool for people to speak on what someone should & shouldn’t have or do, due to their circumstances. Seriously who are you to speak on someones blessings?? But I will save that topic for a future post. So Dreamers let’s learn to LISTEN to constructive criticism & watch what we share with others….
