Fifty Years of Bad Decisions: Change the Voices Within—and Without Breaking the Legacy of Silence #44 | Kim D. Bailey | FIVE:2:ONE

My life is exactly that—mine. I do the best with it each day. No one has a right to preface their justifications for denying me anything based on who I am, or even all I’ve done. Deny me your time, protection, money, or love—just do it honestly and take responsibility for it instead of pushing that off on me.

    I have a few less years, but no shortage of bad decisions. But here is my thoughts about your eloquent view. Even if all of what happened to you was based upon bad decisions, who the HELL was he to judge your decisions? I have no doubt that he has made a few himself. Everyone makes bad decisions, that is how we learn. Some of us fail to learn, so we judge… And apply our own pain to the world around us. The more enlightened of us apply it as generousity and kindness… Then there are judge mental bastards like the one in this story. Be the light you are and shine my dear!

    This is some powerful stuff right here and sings to my soul deeply. I agree 100%. CHANGE the voices within and don’t let others make you feel less for ANY reason. We ALL make mistakes, every damn one of us! No one is perfect and we’ve all made a bad decision or two…goddess knows I have. Why beat yourself up or let others beat you up mentally for shit that’s done and over with? Only you can change you and only YOU can keep others from making you feel like you aren’t good enough. This man was wrong with what he did on so many levels. Fight those demons, find people to help you fight those demons, and brush off people who have no compassion for others and act high and mighty. They aren’t worth your energy.
    Kim D. Bailey ❤ You go girl! Keep fighting! ❤
