People pleaser. 

I’ve never really been a people pleaser. I mean there are some ways where I am but when it comes to who I choose to associate with and be friends with I am so not a people pleaser. 

If I want to be your friend then I’ll be your friend. I don’t care what Tom, Dick, or Harry have to say about it. I pick my friends on who can genuinely add to my life. Just because someone else around me doesn’t want me.to be around you doesn’t influence me. Heck if anything it pushes me closer to you. 

I don’t live my life to make others happy. I am sure there is a large group of people who are actually greatly disappointed in how I do thing, maybe they can start a club and get jackets. If I constantly lived to make others happy I would probably be completely miserable all the time. 

I don’t choose my friends to please my other friends, or my siblings or heck not even my parents. It’s just not how I work. I don’t handle ultimatums very well either. You don’t tell me I have to choose. If you do 9/10 I’ll choose the other person because they didn’t tell me I had too. 

My friends help me see the fireflies so if I’ve picked you as a friend then there is a real reason. I’m not just going to squish you out of my life. 

Keep searching for fireflies.

Stand up. 

Sorry to anyone who read my last post. Also not sorry. I mean this is my blog. Where I can express myself unaplogetically correct?

Anyways, this post isn’t about that. Yet it also kinda is. This post is about standing up for yourself. For what you believe in. I believe that if you love someone who try every avenue of working out problems. You figure out wat works. . And what doesn’t. You learn together and that will help you love together. 

I believe that you shouldn’t let someone come between you and your spouse, not a family member, not a friend, not a co-worker. NO ONE. well ok you can let God come between you but if he comes between you then maybe you shouldn’t be each other’s spouses to begin with. But that’s another topic for another post. 

I believe that you should build each other up not tear each other down. 

Stand up for yourself but also stand up for them. Help them find the fireflies in life while.you look for your own. This one doesn’t just go for spouses this goes for everyone. Sometimes helping someone else see some Fireflies shows you your own. 

Keep searching for fireflies.
