Beware of those who say they fully understand you, but their actions suggest otherwise. Those are the people who see your vulnerability and yearning to be understood and they take advantage of it.
Beware of those who claim they will always be there, but whenever you need something they have something imperative to do. Those are the ones who publicly want to be viewed as supportive, but in turn aren’t truly supportive at all.
Beware of those who claim to be a caregiver, but someone else is always taking care of your needs. Those are the ones who seek self gratification and desire accolades for being a great person when great is no where in their name.
Beware of those who say they love you, but take out their frustrations of your illness on you. Those are the ones who will shout to the world your praises in your presence, but complain behind your back to whoever will listen and always find a reason to bring up how sick you are to demean you.
Beware of those whose words don’t match their actions because their behavior has the potential to stress you out thus contributing to how ill you currently are.
Beware of the wolves in sheep’s clothing. They mean you no good, no matter how hard they try to prove to themselves they have good intentions and want the best for you.
Why am I telling you to beware of these people? I am telling you because I have watched so many cry, stress, become depressed and even kill them selves because they believed someone was truly in their corner and they found out otherwise.
Don’t wait until it’s too late to recognize the signs from these people. Reality is, red flags have been going up constantly, but you have been ignoring them. Yet you are wondering why you are flaring more, feeling more anxiety and even start feeling like isolating yourself from the world.
Beware of the warning signs. They say “caution ahead,” and it is up to you if you decide to heed the warning.
We as spoonies, go through different things daily with our health so we definitely don’t need anyone or anything adding to our already tough life.
Do you realize how important you are? You are your number one priority and you must treat yourself as such! When you view yourself as the queens and kings you are, then you will not accept anything less.
Reevaluate the people who are around you and make sure these people are truly lifting you up, supporting you fully, cheering you on, being helpful without gain, showing you by actions how important you are and how much you are loved.
You deserve that plus more my Loves! Please don’t ever forget it or allow someone to tell you otherwise!!! Beware!!!!!
