Have you ever read a post on Facebook of your friend complaining or giving their negative opinion about something you do, support or people you hang out with only to find that in a couple days they want to hang out with you or talk to you. The worst part is they act like they didn’t write what they just wrote and even if it wasn’t about you, what they wrote offended you.
My friend, we wrote an article earlier on Tru.Works of this type of friend and we found that actually, they’re not your friend at all. They are a secret hater!
At Tru.Works we want to teach you to love your haters not hate them because you then become a hater yourself.
See, you can be doing great things and slowly you’ll see some of your friends become your enemy. You know, it’s sad but some of you may go back and get their approval or try to fix that friendship. Let me know how that works out because most likely that “friend” will repeat that over and over again!
You can’t control what your friend says and does but you can control your own actions. They’ll keep posting things online as you keep posting your good works. They’ll keep talking about you as you keep doing great things. It’s you, the artist, the actor, entrepreneur, the parent, the volunteer, the inventor, that your friend can’t get over. You have something they want and don’t possess. They rather you not have it at all if they can’t have it.
This friend won’t work on honing his skills for himself, they’ll never step up to the challenge and will flake when it’s time to put on a show but you won’t flake, you step forward and perform! Keep it up!
Don’t let a so-called friend stop you from reaching your purpose. They’ll fade away while you paint your canvas with color and light.
