When people do you wrong, bring you down or attack you for no good reason, it is completely, and utterly, a reflection on themselves.
They are seeing something in you that painfully echoes around a very hollow and empty part of their soul.
Your brightness interrupts their darkness and amplifies how dreary their life is. It shows them a world they have no clue how to get to.
Instead of allowing that darkness to dim your light, make it have the opposite effect.
Think about it, you owe it to yourself and to them to do so.
‘Why do I owe them anything?’ I hear you ask?
Because without realising it, their shade will spur you on to strive even more, spreading your sparkle wherever you go. If it hasn’t so far, let it do so now.
And maybe, just maybe, it will show them a better way and turn their life around too.
No, they don’t deserve it but you can spare the glitter – so throw it their way and see if some magic happens.
Then, get on with living a life so fabulous and fill yourself so fully of joy and positivity, that you don’t have a minute to give them a second thought.
Don’t get bitter, get better.
The power is in your hands, not theirs…
