Do You

Not everyone needs to be friends and everyone doesn't need to like or agree with you, that's the beauty of individuality.

Every year, I usually make goals on what I want to do in order to be successful and those goals are usually based on accomplishments. This year I'm really trying to just focus on myself and my mentality which is why my goal for 2017 is to not be judgmental. The truth of the matter is, there are SO many things in this world that you can't control and in this list, includes other people. I find that one of the worst traits people have (while mostly not knowing they have it) is putting others down. I don't know why we do it. I suppose as humans raised in a particular society, being judgmental is just another negative factor that's molded into us. 

Too often, I see women bashing other women and judgement being passed on people we don't even know. I mean just take social media and the internet. So many people go to place their anger and frustrations out to others aka HATERS ARE SO REAL. Social media is the most prominent example of this issue, however shit talking has been something people have done for so many years. It happens online, in schools, pretty much everywhere. 

What gets me the most I suppose is why we fixate so much energy on a person we don't like. Ideally you would think that if we don't like what another person is doing, we would either talk to them about it or just ignore them all together. It's a pretty simple way of life: Don't invest yourself in things that don't make you happy. However the reality is that when we don't like something, more likely than not we just end up talking shit about it to another person instead. 

My mom always says "Their business has nothing to do with you." and while homegirl definitely does not always follow this advice (wassup Vietnamese moms??) it's definitely something that has resonated with me these past few days. I definitely encourage everyone to really think about what they say. Talking badly about another person really doesn't do anything to that person, it just makes you look petty. It goes back to that if you don't have anything nice to say, then don't say anything at all. There's no need to be fake, but at the same time, there's no need to bring more negative energy into the world either. 

At the end of the day, what another person does has nothing to do with you and if you don't like what they do, then don't associate yourself with it. Not everyone needs to be friends and everyone doesn't need to like or agree with you, that's the beauty of individuality. You do you and they do them and that's really all there is to it.
