I Can Weather Any Storm

I have been wanting to write for days, I have started the first line many times...  I know what I want to say, I just didn't feel like I could say it.  My words have been used against me, twisted in ways I don't even recognize them.   That is why I wrote my last post ... to make myself perfectly clear.  The thought that someone would do everything they could to hurt me is beyond me, I have no desire to hurt anyone like that.

I realized that anyone who took the time to search all of my writings to twist my words to paint me one way, doesn't make them right.  I am not what they want to portray me as, I am tenacious and I never give up... this is the way I have always been... I have had to come through a lot more than this last challenge and I have always come out on top.  I survived ten years of child abuse, being a single mom at the age of eighteen, the emotional abuse in my marriage, the rape... losing him... I can survive whatever is dished out to me.

Believe me when this last challenge came along, I wanted to lay all the words out to prove that they had twisted everything out of proportion but I knew that this is what they wanted from me, I will never break my promise ... some things will stay where they belong and that will leave them to wonder...  Besides, even when it is in plain English, these types of people will find a way to twist them for their own benefit.
It's because they are insecure and they don't believe in themselves... otherwise they wouldn't take hours out of their day trying to pull another person down.  I personally don't have hours in my day to waste hurting anyone... I believe in karma.  I know you cannot keep hurting people and it not come back to you, it is a fact of life, I almost feel sorry for them, because I know that what karma gives back is worse than what is given out. 

So, think about how many hours of your life that were wasted searching for ways to pull me down... since nothing could really be found, my words were twisted so that you could feel better... I am never going to stop writing and I will say what I feel even if my words are taken out of context to appease someone else.  It's better that this person wastes time pulling me down, instead of hurting someone else who might not be able to deal with it... I am strong and tenacious, I can weather any storm.

  3. Launna, I am so sorry to hear that someone is twisting your words in an attempt to hurt you. I really don't understand people who are like that. How miserable their life must be if that is the best way they can find to spend their time. I guess I would say just try to ignore them as much as possible and live your life as you see fit. Big hugs to you, my friend.

  6. Isn't it horrible when people read all this absurdities into your words? I would have never thought you had done all these things for a man! You are working on your health and fitness! It is entirely for you! I am sorry that you had to deal with this, but I guess we have to come to terms with the fact that once we have put the written word out there, people will read into it whatever they please. So see these reactions as what they are: a record of what these people are struggling with. And that this says NOTHING about you at all. Have a lovely Sunday!

  17. I have yet to understand why someone who doesn't benefit in any way would do that. I mean, if there was personal gain I get it, however wrong, it's a motive. But for a person with nothing to gain from making you feel bad I don't get it. They are bullies. Ignore them they are really not worth your time or the energy you spend thinking about it!!

And good for you, for taking the high road and realizing you cannot make things right with some people. And you really can't...because they don't want things right. Their loss, and phft to him.

  26. I just had to read back through and get caught up. I think it's tragic when people get stuck in pessimistic loops. The most amazing thing I've ever seen was how people living in the slums of NYC could lift their sights about their growing up and make something of themselves--despite the odds, despite the numerous negative voices telling them they weren't worth that much. It goes without saying, but we have to choose what voices to listen to, right? And we darn well better listen to the right ones!

After, I've read every single words of your today post, I wish I could give you a big hug, and I got a bit tears. some people are really insecure and forgot that they are also important is as themselves, they should have be proud of who they really are no matter what. You did the right thing to feel sorry for those people. They don't have a good foundations. As I learn from my experience, these type of people are here, there, and everywhere. I'm proud to know you launna, as a person like you and I (us) have to be wayyy strong enough to show them that, they no more dare to hurt others like us, sorry doesn't work:). So, you've been doing such a wonderful and brave to handling what you have been through, We not the victim, we're proud, you've got my support Launna, you know I am so great and proud to know you. Stay is as who you really are, you're wonderful and beautiful. Kisses.

  68. I know it is really hurtful when people say things about you whether they are true or not. It takes a little while to get over the hurt and move on. I am glad you are trying to just move on and not let that person affect your life. I had a fellow blogger who was mean to me at one point. I took a few days off and it took me a while to get back to the point where I enjoyed blogging again. I don't understand why some people choose to be negative, but there are those people out there. I can see by your comments that most people are very supportive to you. You can't let one negative person spoil things for you!! You are such a kind, positive person and so many people enjoy following your blog. You add so much to some peoples live, just remember that.

I love and appreciate all genuine comments, to save a little time, I won't be commenting on the comments on my blog (unless you don't have a blog), I will just visit your blog and comment there, if you have left a meaningful comment for me... I would much rather spend the time reading and commenting on a few extra blogs ❤
