The Dragonfly Forest

They have been given names such as devil’s darning needle, ear sewer, horse stinger, skeeter hawk, and the snake’s servant. Actually, Dragonflies are beneficial, peaceful, and stunning. You are a Dragonfly if you are: ADD/ADHD, dyslexic, dysgraphic, Asperger’s, NLVD, autistic…

Motivational Monday--MOVE ON!

Have you ever been in a situation, relationship, or a job where:
~you have felt used?
~you are drained of your energy?
~you are unappreciated?
~you are taken advantage of?
~you are ignored and/or treated in a condescending way?
~you are emotionally, verbally, or physically abused?

Let me tell you that you don't have to settle for this in your life! You need to remind yourself that you are a great person and deserve to be with people (friendships/relationships/coworkers...) that respect you, appreciate you, and willing to put energy into you too.  

STOP being with people who suck the energy and life out of you!
~~~~If you are the one that gives more than you get in a relationship than GET OUT!  

STOP trying to convince yourself that it is okay because you are strong and independent and the other people need help.
~~~~If the people you are with need so much help, support, and rescuing that you always put their needs and desires first than GET OUT!

STOP justifying the behaviors of others!  
~~~~If you  have to make excuses to yourself and/or others as to why a person is treating you bad, ignoring you, giving you a silent treatment, or just treating others poorly than GET OUT!

Life is short, my dear, so stop settling for less!  When you are sitting on your rocking chair at the end of your life you will have a lot of regrets for staying in bad relationships and bad jobs but you will not regret being with people in your life who put you first, help support you, appreciate you, and make sure you know that you have value and worth. 

Stop being in one-sided relationships with people - it's a waste of your time, energy, and talent.  If a person isn't willing to see the great things you have to offer than MOVE ON!
