It’s a hard knock life, but her name isn’t Annie — it’s reality (KEEP READING 👇🏼)
Last weekend, my platform got targeted both on Instagram and on YouTube. An attempt to harm my reach. A few hate comments on a vulnerable video. This week? A friend of mine, bullied, publicly ridiculed and “called out” online... and for what? People do this stuff to make themselves feel better? That sounds like a warped perception of life if you ask me.
You see, life isn’t always rosé (see what I did there?)... it’s full of trials, tribulations, and fears. People that don’t want to see you succeed will do whatever it takes to see you dance with depression and anxiety. There are horrible, awful people in the world. And that is just fact. No matter how much good they might have in their soul, they embrace being mean and unkind and it’s not ok.
No. We may not be able to change it. Anti-bullying measures are great, but there isn’t a cure for a disease that clings onto seeing others suffer. But there is a way to combat it...
When they kick you down nine times, you get back up ten. When you feel like throwing in the towel, you get back in the ring. When you lose all hope, you pray for strength.
A wise friend said to me “You can’t not walk across the street because you’re afraid to be hit by a bus.”
Life comes with battles. But it also comes with choices. And no matter how trivial your battle may seem, you have a choice to choose to overcome it.
So, I’ll leave you with this... what choices are YOU going to make today? 🖤 (photo by @donovan.n.wagner)
