Are you okay?

•I really didn’t want details, I was just being polite.
•It doesn’t really matter I just needed a favor
•I don’t really have time to listen so hurry up.
•Oh that’s too much, I didn’t expect you to have problems.

Sound familiar?

Probably not, but you certainly feel like that’s what they mean when you’re snubbed after being asked, don’t you?

Time to recognize, honor and be a good steward of your real friends. They may not always say what you want to hear, or be able to do what you want them to do; but you have decided they are your friend, mentor, coach, confident, etc. for a reason. Don’t waste your time looking for a shoulder or ear with folks you don’t know and/or don’t trust.

Let’s discuss it.

There's a not so fine line between being nice and being naive when making decisions about your friends, partners and social circles.
Birds Of A Feather  
Some folks deceive themselves into thinking that they are being nice when they carry on with relationships that are unfruitful and unproductive. But when you refuse to walk away from someone that you know lacks integrity, is cruel or manipulative it is because you fear the possibility of being alone.
Sadly when you chose to be influenced by people who don't treat you well, their bad behavior rubs off and you begin to adopt their habits and ways of treating others. In addition, you likely sabotage potential quality friendships by putting pressure on ...

#LivingSugarFree of Complainers: Don't be deceived by spirits of discontent, strife, and bitterness. Have you ever made the mistake of trying to break up a fight between two angry lovers? You probably still have the physical and/oremotional scars to remind you. The same thing happens when you get between God and his ungrateful children. You know the ones, no matter how things change or improve, if it's not their way, they are not happy. People need to learn their own lessons... When you get in the way you become their scapegoat; helping them avoid the actual lesson. My advice:
  1. Let complainers complain.
  2. Don't offer advice, or solutions unless they ask...
  3. And if you value your peace, by all means don't point out their misery.

Having a thick skin can get you only so far. The next step up is living in the experience. Only then can you learn, grow and help others. So are you ready to love your enemies? No, I mean really love them... Let's start with the easy ones. People you have no real beef with, we call those haters right? The folks who give you the cold shoulder, talk about you or intentionaly create obsacles even though you have no idea why. News flash: haters are good for the ego, but that does not apply if you hate back. Hate in and of itself comes from fear and how can fear be good for your ego? Think about it... There is no valid reason for a person to decide they don't like you because of your style, personality, physical appearance, the way you talk, ...

I've noticed that some grown men, because of their own hurt and past experiences, treat the women they're attracted to like robots. Women are not all the same, and yet courtship is not rocket science. These are  mere observations, and men are definitely not all the same either. It's just not that serious until it's serious.
  1. Just because you think I'm sexy or fine or can have whatever guy I want, doesn't mean I don't have feelings.
  2. Just because you think I have the potential to break y People make time for what's most important to them, not excuses. our heart doesn't mean you should try to get me first.
  3. Just because I stop and pay special attention to you, doesn't mean I'm obsessed or want to marry you. (My favorite)
  4. Just b...

It's not that I don't want to be friends with you | #LivingSugarFree About Andréa It's not that I don't want to be friends with you. I just don't want to be your Facebook friend if I'm not already or we don't have history. Sorry. It's not personal. Maybe I'm a somedia introvert. It's just that, FB has always kind of creeped me out. This has not changed in the past 5 years since I decided to play along. But it has changed since I figured out how to manage it to my own satisfaction. To be honest I <3 my little FB neighborhood. I can actually get to people, engage and support. Maybe for you that's no big deal, but some of us work better with small groups. I can do stage w/ 1000's just fine... but having 1000's of people talking, with confl...

How you handle your current relationships will determine how you handle the relationship you are looking for. Lead by example and be the change you want to see in others.

Andrea Raquel, The Social Entrepreneur Bx = Sugar Free

Have you ever been guilty of being stuck on stupid? I mean someone has to be the culprit. Who are these people that everyone is always talking about? I often think I'm talking to "they" and it turns out I'm talking to "them." Are you stupid or the snob who's always calling others stupid? Or both...I submit at times everyone has been the dork at the light waiting for a different shade of green, and the jerk laying on their horn. Let's work on patience as a society. We can deal with differences as long as we are patient. Andrea Raquel Bx=SugarFree
