After much growing and maturing, I have learned to put the breaks on my emotional reactions. I am a born and raised Italian.. it is in my blood to react quickly and become sassy! However, the past few years have taught me a lot. Pause.
After many experiences with irrational people, I have evolved. I was tired of fighting back with people who could never be wrong. Now I no longer give a reaction to negativity. I think it is extremely important to remember to PAUSE. Do not let emotions cloud judgement and reactions to minor annoyances. If someone is irrational, you will never win. Playing into their games and reacting will spark up their fire. Don’t give their narcissistic drama the time of day or your precious energy; that is YOUR energy and they do not deserve to drain it from you. I remember this by repeating the word “unbothered” to myself in these tempered situations. I challenge you to do the same.
Just tell them to SWERVE and walk away.
Much love. XoXo. Angela

What is truly terrifying about ghosts is the pity we afford them for their current state, the truest feeling they evoke most often is regret and grief. Nothing is more sobering than seeing a once livened person or memory turn into a carcass of its former self. Comparisons from what was to what is can […]
I am ready for this new chapter. I am ready to learn! I am ready to grow and develop as a writer. I miss being the recipient of knowledge. Going back to school will be an exciting and memorable journey. 🙂 #writingstudies #stjosephs #StJosephsUniversity
