Life has its challenges for sure, but we also have a choice in how we handle these challenges and with these challenges comes people that for whatever reason, would love to see us fail which is unfortunate really.
There will be people that intentionally want to knock you down to try to elevate their position or to try make themselves feel better somehow. When this happens, it is easy to feel defeated from being knocked down, but it is imperative that we get up.
It can take a lot of grit, determination, and energy to pick ourselves up, and we might have to dig deep to get back up on our feet, but this is exactly what we need to do.
When we do pick ourselves up, it is with greater personal knowledge and understanding. We now have a greater awareness who is in our ballpark and who isn't. Use that knowledge and NEVER go back to the people that intentionally knocked you down! They will do it again and you deserve MORE!
Simply check the experience off as growth, move forward without anger and leave those individuals who do not have your best interest in heart behind.................way, way, way behind!
