“I’m selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control, and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.” ~Marilyn Monroe
I’ve always loved that quote because it holds so true in so many situations/relationships in life. I mean, we all have bad days. People can choose to love us, or hate us, during the rough times and the good. If they choose to hate us during those times for whatever reason, then we really don’t need them in our lives, right?
Lately, I’ve been surrounding myself with only positive people. That’s not to say that I don’t have negative people in my life. I really think that can’t be avoided at some level. I mean there’s one on every corner, kind of like gas stations. People surface in your life, they’ll show their support or their “ugly”, and it’s our decision whether to allow those situations or relationships to stay in our lives, or not.
I choose to shed myself of the negativity. I choose to embrace my impatience, my insecurities, my mistakes, my strengths, and my successes for they are my own and they make me who I am.
My family, my true friends, and my co-workers…they choose to accept me at my worst, and embrace and raise me up at my best. This people, is a magical thing. Yes, I’m surrounding myself with positivity and it’s nothing but roses and happiness for me and my future.
Haters gonna hate. So to those of you that can’t handle me at my worst, or celebrate me at my best, you sure as hell don’t deserve me in either case. To those of you that support me no matter what? I am eternally grateful that you tolerate me during my bad times, and choose to celebrate the good ones with me.
