“People who want to see you win, will help you win. Remember that.” I believe this statement, this fact needed to be repeated. A lot of small businesses, influencers & musicians aren’t where they could be & some of that is because of lack of support of people closest to them. Especially in black communities & it shouldn’t be like that. You should want to see someone succeed. You should want the best for your neighbor because you’d want your neighbor to want the best for you. It’s that simple! It doesn’t matter if they’re family or not. It doesn’t matter if someone you associate with doesn’t like this person. It doesn’t even matter if the product or services isn’t for you. It will definitely be for somebody you know though & something as simple as a share goes a long way for whoever & whatever you’re supporting. We got to do better when it comes to supporting one another. Give people credit now. Show them love now. Be supportive now. It hurts like a mf when you feel like your support should be more than what it is from the people that’s closest to you. Most of the time the real support come from complete strangers. It shouldn’t cost a mf to support you. If you genuinely are for something you’re going to show it & you’re going to be about it. Period. Also, stop letting the lack of support stop you from chasing your dreams. Sometimes we get stuck in block land & don’t feel like we can do anything because we don’t have the people rooting for us in the stands. It’s okay . You are rooting for you . You know you’re going to make it. Don’t ever give up your vision or forget your dreams because you have little to no support. You have plenty of support out there & it’s just waiting to embrace you. I’m just wanting to remind everyone of a little humility. It costs nothing to support someone, nothing but a few minutes. Share that post, like that blog, watch that stream, play that song & do whatever you can every day to support your neighbor. That’s why God put us here. Be at Peace
It’s messed up to be put in a position where you constantly supposed to do good. Even when bad is done to you. Somehow we’re just supposed to forgive & forget all the people that wrong us. The ones that forget about you when they get where you helped them to. It took me getting used & taken advantage of so much over the years that I used to feel like the girl in the post. I used to think it would cure my giving problem. Ehh, not really. I still remain the same at heart no matter who does me wrong. If they’re taking advantage of me or using me to their benefit then that’s between them & God. But I ?! I don’t let their wrongness taint my heart from being gold. I’m still going to allow love to find me & karma will deal with the opposition accordingly. What they say? You get used to taking Ls it don’t even hurt anymore.
