I’m not in the business of hurting people; quite the contrary.
I don’t have the time or the desire.
I also don’t contribute to the failure of other. Simultaneously, I keep my guards up to prevent others from dragging me down or placing me in their mess.
I will not be on their lowly level. Speaking of dragging, my non-participation extends beyond the physical interferences. Neither will I assist in dragging someone’s name through the mud.
I do not subscribe to those dastardly measures. It is so much better to let people make their own moves without intervention of negativity.
Neutrality beats meanness.
Sometimes, doing nothing when you could do something is just as bad! Looking the other way also requires movement!
If I cannot lift you higher, I refuse to drag you downward. For those people who are always trying to bring people down, let me share with you a fact!
It takes as much energy, strength, and force to push as to pull; to lift up as to lower. The weight is the same.
I hold my head up. I love that position.
Looking down or behind has no value. Either I or you can be a help or a hindrance. It’s your choice as it is mine!
I have made my decision to help … and I’m sticking to it!
