Sunday for self doubt

Sunday, July 20, 2014

My buttons were pushed last night by someone that I thought was a friend, maybe he was just an acquaintance but the words that came out of his mouth were quite racist. From his superior tone he was clearly "All American, white bread" whatever that means.

He kept making generalizations about Asians specifically referring to me even goading me into confrontation with him to which he just laughed off and backed away from the "crazy Asian guy" and the worse part of it was the group that we were hanging out with did nothing other than laugh.

How did I come to surround myself with such negative people? Have they always been so? It made me begin to question my own decisions about well everything.

That anger last night has ruined me this morning, I'm still reacting to it. Last night I walked away angry leaving my "supposed" friends to their laughter and ridicule.

How did I let this guy get under my skin? Why?

Here's for having a better day today than yesterday despite all the negative people who may surround us. If possible, we need to get rid of all the negative influences and people in our lives, they do us no good other than cause us undue grief, anger, and unhappiness.

People suck sometimes. I hate feeling like this.

    Yes, but remember, you can't change people, what they do or say, only how you react to it.

    May God bless you today!

    Yes, people generally suck but I do my best to stay positive.

    When someone tries to bring me down I just count my blessings and smile.

    Have and awesome day!
