Are They Really Happy For You?

Don’t worry about the people who aren’t happy for you.  They probably aren’t happy for themselves either.   Often times when we have friends that we are close with we often walk in an unwaivering confidence that those people will be happy for us when we accomplish something great.  There are some people that are really rooting for you to succeed and there are those people that could care less whether you do or not.  We can call them haters but I’ve never ever wanted to think that someone was hating on me.  My success or someone else’s success may make them feel some kind of way I’ve realized that I have nothing to do with that. That doesn’t stop me from following my dreams because most people that aren’t happy with themselves it will take a lot for them to be happy for you.  I experienced this shortly after getting married I had one person in my life who changed over time the conversations lessened. She always had something negative to say whenever I would mention my husband.  When I first noticed it I thought I was tripping but then every time I would mention my husband’s name or talk about my daughter the mood would always change.  It wasn’t until I brought to her attention that it stopped.  We all wish that our friends and family will celebrate us when we do good things but it doesn’t always play out like that.  I say surround yourself around those people that are there for you and love you no matter what.  Support goes a long way!

We’d love to hear from you, have you ever been in a friendship where you felt your friend couldn’t be happy for you?  Have you been the friend that found yourself in the position where you couldn’t be happy for someone else?  Let us know!
