Why are you so petty?

Why are you so petty?


I always assumed that when you became an adult some things you did as a child would stop.

Things like name calling, back biting, “clicks” jealousy, and being petty.


But I realized it’s not about age but who you are or are not as a person.

Here we are at the half way point of our lives and some people are still acting like we are high school.


Why must you be so petty? Is it because your life didn’t turn out the way you expected it to? Are you trying to turn back the clock to a time when you were the “popular girls aka the mean girls” ?

Or is it that you can’t be genuinely happy for others successes?


I remember when my girlfriend got a promotion, I was as happy as if it happen to me.

I want, especially my women friends to succeed, I will never put them down, I only lift them up with praise. I don’t do cat fights or back stabbing, never have, never will.


I would never say things like “Wow, you use to be so much thinner or what happened to you, you look so different” like I have heard others say.


I know people have stories and not everyone is like me, an open book…maybe they had medical issues…maybe there has been devastating loss in their lives and that is what happened, yet your so quick to say something that would cut like a knife, why? Does putting someone else down, lift you up?


Why is it that they only call is to get gossip and not to see how you are?

Why is it that when they are not the center of attention, they cut you out of ” their group”

Why is it that they still talk behind your back and are happy for your pain?

Why do they expect others to jump on their band wagon of burn them to a stake because they have it out for you?


I’ve come to realize that its because these people are not your friends, these people have unresolved issues that are not yours and you must remember it’s their problem not yours, keep saying not my circus, not my monkeys.


I’ll never forget what my friend Patti C. wrote to me when I was hurting over Mr. Con Artist, that made so much sense and it goes perfectly now, she said.


“At 19 years old they are the mistakes of a boy, at 50 years old they are a reflection of the content of the man….”

Or women as the case may be…


So today my friends, ┬áremember yes, you could have done some things when you were growing up, but we all have the ability to change…or not..maybe this was your content all along…


Can you look deep inside yourself to see what your reflection is saying about the content of who you are now? Think about that….


“Be the change you want to see”


” And just when the caterpillar thought his life was over…he turned into a beautiful butterfly”
