The ones close to us - The ones who tear us down

  
I think it is a shame that those who are closest to us, whom should lift our spirits, support our endeavor's, and make us feel like we can do anything, are sometimes the very ones who tear us down and many times, probably due to their own low self-esteem, they do this without even noticing that they are doing so.
But we are strong and we persevere eventually, doing the very thing's we thought, and those around told us, we  could not do.

Each and everyone us are amazing and have strength beyond belief, we must not ever let anyone make us feel as if we can't.

Because, we CAN!

  1. Very true, many a time they don't mean too, then sometimes they do and do it just tomake themselves feel better in some weird way.

  3. You are so right. We are stronger than we think we are. We shouldn't take to heart anyone's words that try to tear us down. For whatever reasons, some people don't build up, they tear down. But that's their problem.

  5. So true. I am close to a family that really supports and lifts each other up and it is so wonderful to witness that kind of love. My husband is super supportive as are my children.. but I wish I had that kind of family growing up. There seem to be many very supportive bloggers out there and I appreciate them all..including you.

  7. Hi Madison,

    Having experienced put downs from the very people who should of respected and gave me credibility, tore me apart. Eroded my self-esteem.

    Perhaps it's a case of someone hiding their own insecurities by dismissing someone else's endeavours, hopes, goals and dreams.

    We both know that nobody has the right to devalue our humanity.

    Dear Madison, you are so right, we CAN! We make it so. Thank you for this, Madison.

    In empathy and goodwill.

    Your friend,

    Gary :)

  8. I like this post.

    It was how my family treated me that led to my breakdown, so I no longer have anything to do with them. I simply could not be around them. And, at the other end of the scale, I am lucky to have the friends I have. But there are times that they just don't understand, which can be very frustrating.

    1. Hi LIS, those friends are a blessing. It is so important to continue to move forward and not feed off of others insecurities.

  9. There are some that thrive on tearing you down as they simply enjoy it. It gives them power. There are various ways I've learned to take that power away: I don't react to it anymore, I stay away from people who do nothing more than want to abuse, accuse and suchlike or you can simply let them know what they are doing and see how they react to your statement - just in case they are not aware of how much hurt they are causing.

    I guess you feel more betrayed when this bad behaviour comes from a nearest and dearest one.

    1. Hi rpd, you are so right, when its coming from those closest to you it sure can make you feel betrayed. Thank goodness for those who support us.

  10. I honestly believe that most people who do this have no idea what harm they are causing.

    I really needed to hear this at this moment in time, because it is exactly what I am living through.
    Many, many thanks for giving me hope, Madison. I cannot begin to thank you enough.
    Hugs :)
