Not everyone has the same heart as you.

Have you ever been left feeling disappointed by people?

In one of my first jobs I remember being told I was too nice and that no-one is ever that nice.

TOO nice.

Bullying is too much of a strong word for me but some people at this workplace would pick at everything I did, said or even wore. I'd go home every night crying to my mam and wanted to leave, but each day I returned, stayed true to myself and in the end after about a year of this going on daily, I achieved what I wanted to achieve, I grew in confidence with thicker skin and the "Bullies" somehow respected me and became my "friends".

I've always been the person who takes things to heart. Nine times out of ten in life generally though, things probably aren't personal but that's just how my heart likes to roll.

I think your past forms your future and what you've maybe been through reflects on how you deal with things and that's why it's so important to realise not everyone is the same. Use it to your strength and help it build you into the person you want to be.

I'm the person who will be the happiest in the room for you but I'm also the person that doesn't always get it reciprocated and I'll be honest, it can definitely break me.

Some people just can't be happy for you when the shoe is on the other foot, unfortunately, and that's a hard truth to swallow - but it's reality. How you deal with that is up to you!

"Not everyone has the same heart as you."

They really don't.

It's just in some peoples blood. People can be so selfish and I always find that so hard to wrap my head around and again I can get so upset by it. But what does that gain? Absolutely nothing!

That's why you have to toughen up and not take it so to heart.

You have to live your life for yourself and carry on doing what you're doing because for every knock you get there's always a reason to push through it and a person who does care.

Just be mindful though, because people may not always tell you how they feel about you, but they will always show you. Pay attention to that and don't be a pushover.

I always try to cut out negativity from my life and keep the positive people close, so if you're feeling this way and you have the option, just cut the rope or limit time with those people.

"People will forget what you said and forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel"

No beauty shines brighter than that of a good heart so be good to people for no reason and don't let anyone break you because I can guarantee you're amazing and you can get through anything!

  1. I can definitely relate to this! I've always been a pretty sensitive person and have had to deal with bullies growing up too. I went through a phase when I lost faith and acted cold and bitchy to everyone, only to find that it made me really lonely. So I've gone back to kindness, and if someone doesn't appreciate it they're not worth it.

  2. I've become overly sensitive (I've always been though) as I've gotten older and things really effect me more and more. I always find it amazing when I fight with someone how quick they can simply forget those hurtful words they muttered mere moments ago. We are all different and it sucks that most people just aren't as empathetic as others.
