“It’s better to be healthy alone than sick with someone else” – Phil McGraw
I made a big mistake once again. I trusted the wrong people. It’s so hard to know which people to trust.
People can be nice. So you trust them. People make mistakes and they apologize. So you trust them.
Some people have the best intentions. But those intentions pull you down into the quicksand. Into the desert. Into a coffin where you can’t breathe. They stain your person as well.
But deep down I’ve only found a few people in my life to trust. Over a period of decades.
Here’s what happens when you associate with the wrong people:
Every moment you spend with the wrong person you could’ve been spending with someone you love. Or you could’ve spent seeking God’s face for your life and trying to know him better.
This time could have also been judiciously utilized to be helpful to yourself by investing in yourself rather than wasting it with unproductive people.
People always tell you who they are right when they meet you. If your significant other says, “I’m afraid I’m going to hurt you”.
You might be right in between kisses. Nothing feels better than a kiss. Or even better, a first kiss. How can they hurt you. It’s a first kiss! The best feeling in the world.
How can she/he possibly ever hurt you? But if they say they will, then they will. It’s like the one time they will be honest with you.
Or if they are leaving someone else to be with you. That’s a pretty big sign of who they are, right? But you feel that attraction, that magnetism and you want to be close, to be in love, to trust that everyone else was a lie and now this is TRUTH. It’s not. It never will be! And just so you know, they can betray you at any time.
THEY CRUSH YOU
You always feel bad when you are around them. This might be your fault also. Why should someone be required to make you feel good.
But if you ALWAYS feel bad, no matter who they are, you should probably take a step back and ask, “what’s up?”.
This is the golden rule: WHEN YOU GET IN THE MUD WITH A PIG, THE PIG GETS HAPPY AND YOU GET DIRTY.
YOU CAN’T BE HONEST
At some point in my life I decided to stop pretending. I decided to stop caring what people think. If I can’t be myself this time, then I know I will start to drown again.
Being honest is like treading water. So you can see the sky in all of its expanse.
When you can’t be honest anymore, it has become a bad influence on you. This people corrupt you, as you begin involving yourself in whatever shady activities they do. They influence you negatively. Nothing good can come out of you at this point in time.
Sometimes, it is better to be alone than be with certain set of people. These people would stain you, corrupt you and dump you as you won’t be able to stand the test of time with them anymore. Don’t you think it’s necessary to know quite well the person you claim to love or like before giving in to any relationship with them? I think so too. No one and I repeat, no one needs a person who would never think of moving forward in life as a friend. Because they will always see and think of you just as they do themselves.
