Declarations of a Drama Queen


"When life makes you have to put up with mean and hateful people, just think of them as sandpaper. They may scratch you and rub you the wrong way time and time again...But eventually, you end up smooth and polished. But the sandpaper, it’s just going to be worn out and useless."

Don't let the criticism of others bring you down. Instead use their harsh words to build yourself up. In the end, you will become stronger, braver and wiser. And they will be left with nothing more to harm you with.

*Adapted by me from Fighting Temptations

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Thanks I needed that, especially after meeting some of the slightly mentally unstable people I have met who like to disparage others - they are sandpaper!

If someone wants to hate, let them hate. I like to use that as motivation to work even harder.

Oh to Be a Muse said...

I've never heard it put this way before...thinking of negative people as sandpaper. That is a good one!

Alexandra said...

I love that notion...I used to get really mad about people who pissed me off and would react, but I think it's important to take the high road, which I think this quote really communicates. Hope you're having a good week so far love!
