Take The Cape Off and Save Yourselves!
After a series of unfortunate events, I have learned one thing. It’s time you stop caping for those who don’t support you.
If you need information on what caping means, have no fear, the urban dictionary is here. To cape for someone is a slang term meaning to blindly defend someone, no matter how wrong they are. Now with that out of the way, it time to get back to our regular programming.
Ladies, I urge you to take that cape off you once proudly worn at one time and throw it down to the ground. I say this because I don’t want you to have to deal with what I’ve had to. If you are surrounded by people that don’t support you, constantly take from you and make you feel depleted, let them go. It saddens me when I go online to read stories from women who are left to feel unhappy, angry and lost after realizing the people that they have grown close to failed them when they needed them in their time of need. These people have done you wrong and in the back of your mind you know this as well but you’ve made excuses for them and waited for them to change. I’m here to tell you it is time to take off that cape and save yourself. No more going through hoops of fire or risking your own mental, physical and emotional well-being.
Life it too short to be stressed over people that you have a choice in keeping in your life. Stop caping for people who are so invested in bringing you down or causing you to think something is wrong with you. Stop caping for people who make you feel less than. Stop caping for people who lack the motivation to move forward and expect you to stay in the same position as them. Stop caping for trifling ass partners who bring nothing to the table. Stop caping for people who take all your energy from you. Stop caping, stop caping, stop caping.
Ladies, we are drained, we barely have anything left in us to give. I urge you to take that little bit of energy you have and redirect it on yourself. Do what makes you happy and forget about what others may think. Let these people go and so they can figure out their own screw-ups. It is not your job to defend people who are in the wrong. With the year drawing to a close, now is the right time to rid yourself of people who bring no type of positive impact to your life.
I know how it feels to constantly give your all to others and not even receive so much as a “thank you.” I guarantee you will get to a point where you will sit back and think why the hell are these people in my life if they make me feel some type of way.
Leave those people in the dust and start practicing self-care.
