Some people are like trees
My girlfriend sent me this Tyler Perry, Madea video this morning and I needed to speak on it, as no words could have been truer. He explains how some people are like trees in your life and some are there for a season and some for a lifetime.
See if someone wants to walk out of your life…let them go!
Especially when you’ve been the best man or best women you could be towards them, let them go.
Whatever they are running after they will see what they had but let them go.They will realize what they lost eventually but it will have been too late, you would have already moved on by then.
The person your crying about now, you won’t even remember their last names in 3 or 4 years, you will be saying “What the hell was I thinking? I must have been lonely as hell to have hooked up with you!”
Now your laughing because we have all said that at one point in our lives or another.
Some people come into your life for a lifetime, some just come for a season and you need to know which is which.
Sometimes you will tell a person about the things they are doing that are hurting you, if they fix it or they try to fix it then they are a leaf trying to grow up to be something, if they don’t, that means they don’t care, they never cared move on! Let them go!
See some people are like leaves on the tree, they blow this way, then they blow that way and as soon as the storms come they are out of there, they were just there to teach you a lesson. Most people are like leaves, they are only there to suck life out of the tree and once in a while give you shade, then they wither up and die.
Some people are like the branches of the tree they stick around for a while but as soon as you step out on them, they crack and break leaving you high and dry.
But if you have a few good people, these are the roots of your tree, that are there for a lifetime.Those are the ones you keep around, because no matter how bad the storms get they are there to protect you, to keep you steady, these are your deep roots, that are meant to stay around.
It took me along time to find peace in my life, I have put up with a lot of crap along the way because I didn’t think I was good enough, I was scared to be alone, I needed a man in life so I put up with chaos, I put up with shit just because fear kept me stuck.
Yes, I am one of those who say “When God, when will I have a good man?”
but I’ve realize that this the time is to work on myself, it’s okay to be alone. I’d rather be alone and happy than with someone that is ruining my peace.
And here’s a tip I’ve learned if you have peace in your life and then you find someone and your peace feels like it’s leaving you….they are not the one, trust me when I tell you this.
You will be surprised by the things people put up with just to have someone say they love them….no, you need to love yourself first, you need to spend time with yourself, figure out why you are crying over leaves, that were there for a season, they are there to teach you a lesson, figure out what that lesson is and move on.
Yes, even at this age I am learning and growing and changing. See I refuse to settle, I refuse to let someone use or abuse me, I am okay with my life. I have a full life and if you don’t, then go out and get one.
The other day my girls asked me where I was going, I said to yoga on the beach, they asked with who? I said I didn’t know, it was a Meet up group. They said how can you do that, you don’t know anyone, that is the point I said… I will meet people.
It’s your choice you can sit home, you can be lonely, you can put up with shit just to say you have a “man” or you can get a life, you can make the life you want. Don’t wait around to live until you find someone, find yourself now.
So today my friends, realize who are your leaves in your life, who are your branches and know that they are there for a season and it’s okay.
And then you will realize who are your roots, the ones you can always depend on. In the meantime, learn your lessons, find yourself, enjoy yourself, live your best life now!
