Here's what I know.



People who whine a lot aren't good to be around.
People who gossip a lot aren't good to be around.
People who tear others down aren't good to be around.
People who don't support you, your dreams, your vision, your goals, aren't good to be around.

Haters will hate. That's okay.
You will be criticized. That's okay.
Turn away and focus on the people who lift you up instead.

I teach my kids "We are meant to give joy to others, not steal joy from them."

I don't know much. But this much I know is true!

Yep! Joy is a fruit if the Spirit according to the Bible in Galatians 5:22..... You are so right, negative people just drain life from you.. Blessings!

I am with you 100%! This is so true, and sometimes we don't realize how much baggage negative people throw at us (until we're suddennly aware that we are staggering from the weight of it all). This is a timely reminder for me, thanks!!

Awesome post, Beki. Life is too short for negativity and waiting for things to happen.

Thanks for the inspiration :)
