Thus started my friendship with Sue.Sue and her lovely family moved from Cape Town to Pretoria fairly recently and I introduced my lovely cousin Karmani to Sue.
This weekend I was so blessed to meet Sue and her family. When I saw Sue it was instantly hugs and kissed and it was if I had met an old friend who I had not seen for ages. I felt so in awe of Sue , her achievements and how amazing she is as a person. Though Sue’s visit was very short , it has strengthened our bound and Sue is now part of my family.I got to spend time with Sue talking about my dreams, my blogging, my life and The Magnifying Glass.I truly feel so blessed an inspired to have met a soul like Sue on my life journey. Its so amazing the people God sends into your life when others walk out.
Thank you Sue, for coming into my life ! I totally love and adore you and feel this is just the start of our friendship.Its so amazing how we clicked from the first email and how everything just fell into place after that….To new memories, lots of laughs, lots of adventures and lots of tea and cupcakes along the way….
Over the years life has taught me many lessons but one of the most valuable was about friendship. I have on my life journey met some really amazing friends but in reality and on social media networks.
The lesson I have learnt is that not all friendships are meant to last forever till I am old and grey. Some of these friendships believe or not have expirey dates and we should try and keep those that have expired.
People come into our lives for a reason or a season and once the lesson has been learnt they leave,but us as humans try and hold onto the person and ask questions and beg for that friendship.Over time I have learnt these lessons wisely and now if these friends decide it time to go I thank them for helping me on my journey with valuable lessons and say ciao.
But on the flipside some of the most amazing humans ever have enriched my life , held my hand and stayed through every storm and rainbow.
The lesson is learning to let go if its past its expirey date……
The world is made up of all sorts of people . In our journey of life we meet some really amazing people who inspire us ,care for us and most of all appreciate us.
And then we meet some monsters , people who are fake , self absorbed and just want to hurt us. These people use us emotionally , drain us and then toss us to the kerb like a used can after fulfilling their needs at that point in time. Its awful that these people have no heart and think nothing of hurting others. I have had my experience with many of these monsters who started off as Ordinary normal people but then mutate once we let our guard down and let them into our inner circle. They then show their true self once we let them in and this is very scary. I am so glad to have gotten rid off several of these monsters from my life .They drained me emotionally drained and sucked away all my positive energy. One monster I met in London really was one of note she always put me down, passed negative comments and used me luckily I escaped from her clutches and kinda disappeared into almost thin air where she could not get hold of me. She has befriended me of Facebook and tries to fish me for information on my life .But I have become wiser and I aint afraid of this monster no more , I offer very little information and often give her the silent treatment. Monsters however dont come in the female form only but male as well. The male ones are very damaged , looking to hurt and use others then turn their backs and walk away without turning back on the damage and destruction they have left behind. I had the pleasure of meeting one male monster last year and boy was he a work of art damaged and fake to the core. I was saved from his clutches and refuse to let him emotionally drain me again.
I firmly believe that we meet these monsters on our life journey to teach us lessons. Sometimes we feel so betrayed and hurt by these monsters that we cant see the true reason they are set on our journey.Life has taught me to be positive , be happy and rid these monsters from my life . I cant fix all these monsters with their damaged pasts cause some people are not meant to be fixed ……So instead I thank them for their life lessons and appreciate the amazings friends I have all over the world, friends who love, care ,inspire and support me .I AINT AFRAID OF NO MONSTER (sung in the Ghostbusters theme song lol)
So in the words of John Legend…..We just Ordinary People……we dont know which way to go …..
