Don't agree to accept what critics say

Being a strong woman means being confident in your own skin.
It took me years to get that confidence and self worth, but there are still days that I get caught up in challenging situations and forget. 

Weather we like it or not, there are mean people.
Sometimes in our life we get to deal with bad people and dealing with people who put you down can be a painful experience.
Mean people love to cause stress and chaos. The things they say, the way they look at you, treat you, can hurt you and all this can destroy your confidence. You can go from being a happy person to being someone who doesn't recognise himself, someone who became sad and lost.
Mean people suck away your happiness, your energy.
I believe that a happy, self-confident person, does not put others down.

Have you ever asked yourself question, why a mean person act the way they do? 
Are they looking for attention?
Do they feel insecure and threatened?
Are they lonely?

I' a huge fan of The Secret and this is one of the quote I came across the other day and like it a lot.

When a big change occurs in your life it forces you to change direction.
Sometimes the new path may not be easy, but you can be absolutely certain that there is magnificence for you on the new path. You can be absolutely certain that the new path contains things that you could not have experienced otherwise. When we look back at a negative event that occured in the past, we often see how in fact it transformed our life. We see how that event directed us toward a life that we would not change for anything.
~The Secret~

I'm one of those people who doesn't like change. Once I get used to something and it is nice, I want to keep it that way. 
But wether we like it or not, things change, situations change. It seems hard to accept it, but change is good. 
Sometimes to move forward, to be who we want to be, we need to change. 
Even just a little bit.


''Whatever negative things people think and say about you is enough to bring you down provide you belief that it carries a weight that can push you hard. Don't agree to accept what critics say, be prepared to silence them by doing what they think you can't do!''

''Those who pray for your downfall are concentrating negative thoughts towards you, without taking cognisance of the slippery ground in which they are standing, which could lead to their downfall.''

Be happy, be positive, be strong, believe in yourself!

  3. Hi my lovely Dusana. This is such a wotlrhty post to read for me:). Bein positive and more on behavior myself as well. I'm telling you that it has been real hard to be around people who gossips and nagative themself. I'd love to have my little own space and alone time:). But I much rather keeping in touch with a person who also positive and respect themselves as is as respected in others as well. It's more healthy and give me a peace of mind. I'm a minds peace person. But if we have to deal with those unwell kinda person like work or any situation brings them to us. I will keep myself even more behaviors and try to talk less with them. It's so sad Dusana because these people are need help to work on their behavior - I've always telling my kid stay away from those who mean. As long as my kid are good and can handle with such a mean world:). For example, yesterday I took my kids to the park and my both boys were riding the swings and the the not nice boy( about the same age of my boys), came and pushed one of my boy down and took a swing from my boy but the sad part was that kid's mom was with him and didn't say a word to sorry me and my boy. I was sat away on a chair but I kept my eyes on my boys all the time. I walked there when it happening to my kid. I told my boy it's okay that moment and pulled him out and told him - next time you have to speak up and protect yourself from who is not nice to you by tell them to wait till their turns :) but not worth for to go hit the kid who not nice to you. Wow Dusana :). Sorry I let it out too long comment here lol. It's worth to share though. Keeping up with your beautiful positive my lovely Dusana. Enjoy your beautiful weather too:). Have a wonderful week ahead :). Lots of kisses :).

    1. Lovely evening my sweet Tanya.
      That's really not nice what happened, but I like the way you acted. It is really not nice the mother of the the kid didn't say anything, but that just show she doesn't have any manners.

      I believe as well it is important to surround yourself with positive people. As you said it is healthy and give you peace of mind.

      Sending you big hug and many kisses! :-)

  4. Great post! Be happy :)
    Have a nice day!

  7. Great post

    New post in

  8. Oh well, this is a very important topic Dusana. To be honest I dont know why they act in that way, maybe cause they feel down first and insecure and just want to bring other at their same level. What can I suggest is just t leave this kind of people, moving forward and being happy of the person you are. Hugs! xo

  9. Dear Dusana, I think such people are simply also not satisfy with their life and I think they try to transmit the own insecurity to other persons and try to show the power they don't have ... I try to give such people as less attention as possible.

    Thank you for your wise and good text. I love further the quote you mention here.

    Hugs from Germany/Bavaria, Rena

  10. Nice words! I agree!
    Have a nice day!
