When someone gives their heart!!!
I know the title “Stand up Pay Attention…”, sounds like I am going to hop up on a soapbox and preach to you, but I am not. You see the last month has really opened my eyes as to the important things in life. Maybe it is the global pandemic that has forced me to be at home 24/7 or maybe the “shy quiet girl”, has just seen enough and is tired of being thought of as shy, quiet, and weak. I like to think it is a little of both!
In the last month, this shy girl took some chances, I let some people back in my life and I walked away from a toxic situation. While I know there are people out there who will disagree and question with my choices, in the end, they will always be mine.
With the world in chaos my eyes were wide open and I started thinking about decisions I had made and I realized I cut people out of my life. People who I never should have let go of because in the end they were really my true friends and my family. With my eyes wide open I saw that sometimes the people who you think are your friends, they are only there to take from you for as long as you let them. After you fill their book and lessen their load you are left mentally and physically exhausted and your inspiration is empty while theirs is full.
With my SL and RL full of friends and family who truly cared about me, I began to see how one-sided my SL had become. I was so lost that my inspiration was disappearing, my blog was suffering and so was my health it was time to make a change. Now I see how true it is that all healthy relationships are based on mutual respect, trust, honesty, and support. And even in a game, you need those fundamentals, when they are missing relationships become toxic.
So no more keeping quiet and putting my needs last, because I finally realize what I am worth and anything less is just not healthy for me. It is time for me to Stand up and be me!
