There are a lot of thieves out there. People who take great glee in taking from you. Sounds bitter? Rings of truth? Could go either way.
There are a lot of people out there who want to stamp out your fire. Not a blazing, scary, wild fire. But your fire, your drive. People who want to pick, pick, pick. Pick at your scabs as you’re trying to heal. They are such vultures. Sounds bitter? Rings of truth?
You are meant to find your joy. And, then there are those who want to steal it. Not even in the cover of night. But out in the open as they try to gaslight you into thinking they ate giving you something. Giving you some worldly advice, as they take away your shine. Sounds bitter? Rings of truth?
Don’t let the joy thieves get their way. Find your joy. Hold onto your joy. Keep your joy.
