We can’t expect everyone to act the way we do…
We can’t expect everyone to support! We can’t expect everyone to be understand! We can’t expect everyone to do the common sense things that YOU would do!
This is not even a rant, or a dig at anybody, it’s merely just me thinking out loud after reflecting over my productive weekends!
Selling out another show last weekend with the help of my loved ones was incredible – was so overwhelmed, but a little disappointment did touch my heart when I looked around the room and realised a few people I EXPECTED to be there – were NOT!
This wasn’t a rave or a link up – it was a cause close to my heart that I really wanted to share with my loved ones. I had to shake off that feeling ASAP and understand that – “We cannot expect people to act the way we do”.
To be honest I was just grateful for the people that did come, even those I never expected! God bless you all!
This journey has been GREAT! I can’t thank God enough, and yes on the outside I do look all happy and smiley, but there are days that I sit and ponder and then realise “my life will actually never ever be the same again!”
I’m not complaining! No way! I’m too excited to complain, it’s more the fact that I will need to adjust very quickly and I’m hoping people around me will adjust too without taking my actions to heart.
Sometimes I want to be alone, but sometimes I really do wish I had a close friend next to me who understands and is going through this whirlwind journey with me that I can speak too at any time of the day!
Over the weekend I attended two AMAZING events, all focusing on entrepreneurship. One focused on black businesses, the other focused on mothers who were still grinding and hustling, both inspired me in their own unique way!
The Mummy event really touched me as I met, and have now kept in contact with some AMAZING mums and mums to be! I’ve been sceptical about making new friends, but I realised maybe this is what I need. To be around more people that understand this journey and support you through the emotional ride.
Don’t get me wrong I have the best friends ever – but these ladies understood my frustrations and stopped making me feel like I’m going mad over the pettiest things.
We can’t expect everyone to have the same mindset as us, sometimes our common sense is not theirs – so simply brush it off and move on! Adapt to your situation!
I’ve adapted by coming out of my comfort zone to learn and meet new people (in particularly mums and mums to be) – their lives mirror mine. This makes me feel better about myself knowing that I have ladies I can turn too for advice or simply just to meet up and chat with specially now that I have more time on my hands.
Make new friends, these could be your new team of supporters! They could be your go too, and most importantly these people can help you when you didn’t even realise you needed help!
This post was hella random but I just wanted to write down my thoughts and just reiterate that’s it okay to not be okay sometimes – but having a good support system around you is so important!
I hope everyone has a blessed and productive week! 🙏🏾
