Do You, Boo

Why is it that people’s actions tend to have an influence on our reactions? I watched an associate completely change demeanor in a negative way because someone didn’t do what he/she was supposed to do. My associate is known for a vibrant, bubbly personality. Through one little mess up by man this individual became cynical and semi-bitter. Not fully being involved in the scenario, I couldn’t add my two cents worth, but I wanted to yell as loudly as I could, “Do you, Boo! Don’t ever let anyone negatively change you from being who you are and being how you were made to be.”

 Do You, Boo

It takes work to work through personal disappointment and pain. But the work is worth it if it preserves you, and presents the best you. None of us should ever want to hear:

  • She used to be so full of life until…
  • He used to be so outgoing until…
  • Right after “this or that happened” she became so…
  • I remember when he used to be so much more…
  • I wonder what happened to make her so…
  • He used to be a snazzy dresser until…
  • She used to be an all-star student before…
  • He was such a nice person before…
  • She was so upbeat and encouraging until…

As you’ve completed reading this blog post I’m sure your mind has wondered to people who fall into the above categories. Part of those people could even be you. Take heart. It’s never too late to become better or even better than before.

Change for the better

The moral of this story is: Never change you because of what others did or didn’t do.
