A mind that's negative will become the product of its own negativity.
I can't explain the countless times,I've allowed myself to be caught up in negativity. I've allowed myself to sulk over the what could be and what couldn't. All the possibilities ,all the options, all the routes, I could have. How I missed it. How I missed my path. How I missed, where I was to go.
I was focused on how so-and-so got to where they are. But I was never focused on who I could have been. The most hurtful concept to ever fall into. It's when you fall in the category of what people say about you. Their testimonies of you. Who they believe you are, who they have allowed themselves to believe you are. It becomes a stereotype, you live by. You can't get out of it. You feel as if, you're stuck in a prison. You're trying to understand why you're stuck. Not knowing you have been placed there by the negativity and thoughts of others.
Thoughts are powerful. Thoughts become words, words actions,then it births into character. People could have been speaking over your life. But they fail to see what you can do. They couldn't see you at your best. Being too busy hiding in the shadows;lurking and creeping. Believing the darkness could be a sort of shield. A haven,a refuge, a fortress. But you have become slave to the darkness. The darkness has kept you in a chains, you're being driven by madness, double mindedness has become your portion. No one can see you. Your light is gone. Shame has filled your face.
I had to learn to get out of my comfort zone. I had to learn to put my foot out. And stand, despite what may come. I had to learn to let go of who I wasn't, and to embrace my now. Embrace ,so I can change. To embrace me, because I know I can be better. I know I can do better. I had to learn to appreciate me, there are people who are looking to me, because of just who I am. I had to deep down inside... love who I was. I had to love my flaws. I couldn't change, if I didn't recognize their existence. If I couldn't love me, who else would.
Let go of negativity, before it takes its toll on you. Before you hurt someone else, through your words and actions.
