If there is one spot of sun spilling onto the floor,
a cat will find it and soak it up.
~ J.A. McIntosh
I grew up being told "No one can make you feel bad without you letting them." I do think there is some validity to that. We choose how much we are going to give value and attention to what other people say and do. But on the other hand, some things just plain hurt, no matter how evolved we are. That being said, I've spent too much energy and time trying to convince myself I can be strong and trying to put on imaginary protective equipment just to be around people who really don't have my best interest at heart.
Take a lesson from the cat.
Wherever they are in the muddle of life,
find those people who uplift you and make you a better person.
Soak them up.
