Change, Heartbreak, Challenge and Desire

I won’t say it. I won’t say that some people should really think over their words before they’re spoken, should take into consideration the effect their words may have on others, and whether their “carefully” chosen words are appropriate in any manner whatsoever.

In other words, I won’t say “STFU already!”

I hate acronyms but damn, did I want to scream that one out loud. Without the “Acronym”.

At what point does the well-meaning individual stop and think, “Gee, trying to convince someone what a bad thing it is to work for their goals is a bad idea.”

There is a difference in a friendly warning that something may go wrong, and spending twenty minutes coming up with every damn excuse you can to cut down that person’s goals, no matter how differing or ridiculous those excuses get as the conversation rolls along.

Because the word “heartbreak” doesn’t just apply to unrequited love and romantic tales.

I’ve tried to shake this and it just won’t go away. The only thing left to do is stop focusing on what others think and continue with my plans as, well, planned.

Easier said than done. I can’t just put my hands over my ears and sing loudly “La La La La La La!!!!” Every time somebody tries to be “well-meaning” with their mouths open a little too wide. People need to realize the old saying “sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never harm me” is actually more accurately portrayed this way: “you can’t unspeak your words.”

I’ll tell you, it’s been a hell of a year, and the last three months summarize it perfectly: Change, heartbreak, challenge, and desire.

Desire to succeed in my goals, in life and every aspect of.

Challenge in the way I try to better myself against all odds.

Heartbreak in everything I have lost.

Change… always so much change.

There. Regardless of the circumstances, I’m going forth with my goals, turning a deaf ear to the naysayers and surrendering my doubt once more.

It’s going to be ok.

    I completely agree. I have personally spent too much of my life *listening* to people who have nothing constructive to say, but think they “help” me by tearing down my dreams. Finally, at the age of 27, I think I’m beginning to tell them “STFU,” at least in my head, which is all that really matters anyway.

    • I agree with both of you, Rachel and Christy. I think the key is to realize only you know what’s best for you, and even if things don’t turn out the way you wanted them to, everything you do is meant to be learned from and that gives you that much more knowledge and experience the next time around.

  2. Well, people are always going to offer their advice and opinions. Some of it can be very useful and other advice can be negative even when the person means well. It depends on their experiences in life and where they are coming from. So chin up, take the good advice, realize people love you, and then find a cheerleader that is going to cheer you on even when odds seem impossible. And that’s my advice…see people just have to offer their opinions all the time…it’s normal. 🙂 But do find a person, or people, or a website that offers positive sayings to keep you going. Because when it all comes down to it…only you can make your dreams happen. Because Disney lied to us…there is no fairy godmothers or talking animals to help us fulfill our dreams. Darn it.

  3. This is the first one of your posts I’ve read, so I don’t know the backstory. But YES, go for what you’re meant to do and don’t let doom-and-gloom people stop you! (Of course, that’s not the same as ignoring advice from people who have something useful to say, but you clearly know that.)

    • I’m glad I’m not the only one who sees the doom and the gloom in that kind of “advice”. I was beginning to think I was just being overly critical, lol. But I believe if something someone says truly brings you down, cuts you down and makes you feel bad… then it wasn’t good advice or anything to be considered at all.
