Neecy, this is your common sense talking and Its time we have a come to Jesus talk. I decided to write it in an open letter so you can always come back and read it in case you find yourself falling off the wagon.
Neecy you’re the kind of person in which too much negativity does affect you directly in not so good ways. It really affects you mentally and emotionally and so you need to be very cautious about the things you internalize and allow in your life. That being said, I find that at times you are such glutton for punishment against your own better judgment. You need to figure out and understand what draws you to choose to participate in or internalize things that you know are not good for your mental or emotional well-being. Is the light bulb out? Do you need to replace it? If so, get to it and fast. You can no longer afford to walk around in dark dreary places and think you will come out bright eyed and bushy tailed ready to take on your goals and missions successfully.
Ask yourself what placing yourself in and around negative things really does for you. I can answer b/c I live in your head – and it gives me a headache b/c I know you know better and it affects me, your common sense directly. So the answer to my question is – Internalizing negativity at this point in your life causes you Neecy, to second guess a lot of things about yourself, your life and where you are going. Ask yourself another question. Are you a negative person by nature? Even when the going gets tough? NO? So why do you choose to surround yourself with it?
I’ve known you since you were a kid who when able, started to use your own natural common sense (ME!). Remember it was I who kept you from losing your hand and sweet little fingers that day you decided you were going to put your hand in the garbage disposal while it was running? You suddenly thought to yourself “Oh maybe I should turn it off first to see if the burnt grilled cheese sandwhich i threw in there is all gone” And you did! Guess who told you to do that? MOI! I can list plenty of othr things in which I kept you from trouble. Just b/c you are a grown up now, doesn’t mean I am leaving you! I have been with you through THICK and THIN and as Carolyn Manzo from Real Housewives of NJ would say “we are thick as thieves”. *ok that probably wasn’t the best example to use in a letter like this, but you get my point* Anyway, you have always like to see the bright side of things even when it looked dark. You are also very spiritual. To be a spiritual person means that you have to always see the good in things/people and always see the glass as half full and not half empty. Dammit how long did it take for me, your common sense to help you get to a point where you finally put this thought process into play? A long time. And dammit I am not letting you turn back b/c I have invested waaaay too much time and energy in you to allow you to just toss me aside like a wet food stamp!
Neecy, you love to laugh and have fun. You’re not a very fun person when you are feeling bad about everything b/c others made you feel that way. I’m tired of journeying with you on the side roads in where you flock to negativity like a moth to a flame. We have a mission and we’re not getting there fat enough b/c you keep stalling on things that are not moving you up the road to the top of the mountain. Plainly put, negativity is simply not mentally, emotionally and physically good for your well-being. You need to avoid it as much as you can, for your own sanity. It can change you as a person and make your life a living hell. Accept things are not always going to be good, great or okay at first, but with enough patience eventually all things work themselves out. Good karma is alive and well. Search for that and not negativity.
Neecy, I’m your common sense. I will never lead you astray. So I have one simple request this month. This is a new month and all I ask is that you continue moving forward & to stop allowing yourself to consume negativity AS MUCH AS HUMANLY POSSIBLE. Its just draining on me and your flesh. You need to understand Neecy, there are simply just cruel and hateful people out there who enjoy relishing in the suffering of others. This is just not mature behavior that leads to any real positive results for anybody. It’s a false sense of security on the disher and an air swallowing on the beneficiary. It also further motions towards the idea that misery loves company, and you need to choose (for our best interest) to not accompany miserable, hateful people or things. Its not worth it.
I think we all at some point laugh off guilty pleasures that we believe are just for “fun”. But when they start taking a toll on you emotionally and making you feel bad about yourself, I think its time to remove yourself from that place and live and enjoy life as it is.
Neecy, you are not a person who believes that anything is impossible in a general realm. There of course are general rules of thumb & exceptions for everything but often times you get caught up in the storm of hearsay, generalizations and I just simply refuse to allow you to accept that for yourself. I believe all things are possible for the person that seeks to make it happen. It may be a much long, hard, rough road to get to those things, but that just makes it all worth the time and patience and FAITH it took to get one there.
You are a new leaf starting over. On a new journey in your life. This means I cannot allow you to get sidetracked by negativity b/c we will never get to that place at the top of the mountain by stopping and internalizing things that tell you it’s not possible for you to reach the top b/c stats, articles, ideas, opinions say otherwise.
If you don’t reach the mountain top, I don’t want it to be because you believed in someone else’s ideas, thoughts, beliefs, objections, mishaps but rather your own. But that won’t happen b/c I’m your common sense and I know that you know better. Our current belief system is all things are possible. Some things require more work, effort, blood, sweat and tears but nonetheless they are still possible.
And so this month I have two goals for you:
(1) To complete the goal for yourself that you didn’t successfully complete last month
(2) Not get sidetracked by negativity
(3) Not interact with cruel, hateful, malicious, non-well-meaning people and things
Now let’s have a wonderful great long weekend Neecy!!!! I love you! Do you love me? Ok so show me.
Your homey – Common Sense
