It was especially interesting because I have been thinking about this lately. I started out thinking about how some people are fun and how some people aren't. You know what I mean?? Some people make everything more enjoyable and there are those others that you cringe a little when you find out they are coming. They are downers. I hope I am not a downer.
There are some people that make you feel bigger and better and like you can do anything. I think we all have those friends. You know like when you say, "I worked really hard today and ran 2 miles." Person #1 says, "that is sooo great. You are a super star. Sometime I want to come with you but you might leave me in your dust!!" Person#2 says, "you can do more, I have to still run my 1000 miles this afternoon. How fast did you run, are you sure it was that far? Is it everyday or just one?" We all know those people.
I think as women we are born with a lower self esteem then men. Like we come out thinking that we aren't super, let's all be real most men think they are super. Anyho, point coming sometime..... While I was run/jogging today I made a decision. I am done with the downers. Those people that make you feel like less when you leave them. People that make you feel like nothing is good enough and depressed. I am trading them in for people that make me feel smart and loved and like I can conquer the world. I know I some people you can't get away from. Some are in your church or your neighborhood or even your family. Still I hope you join me in limiting the interaction you have to have with those people. We all deserve more.
