People in your life

Thursday, October 22, 2009

I was watching Oprah yesterday and she quoted Maya Angelou-- "When a person shows you who they really are, believe them". I had to sit on it for a while but then I got it. There are times when a person shows you their true self but you don't want to believe that they are the way they are. I've made that mistake many times. So many times there are people in our lives that shouldn't be, but we refuse to believe that they are negative influences in our lives. On the flip side, there are good people that SHOULD be in our lives but we refuse to see the good in them. This really makes me think about the people that are in my life.

    What an eye opener that simple statement is. Makes you consider the people around you & take a look at yourself. Are you good for those around you? Must put some thought to this.
