What’s Best For Me

WOW!! I have been completely MIA the last three months. For that, I am incredibly sorry. I can’t even begin to explain the insanity going on in my life over the last handful of months. Nor can I count the amount of times I’ve stared at my computer screen trying to come up with something to post. How was I supposed to write something motivating and inspiring when that’s exactly what was lacking in my life? The amount of unfinished, crummy blog posts I have is unreal.

I have felt very conflicted, hurt, and disappointed lately. I feel as if I have done nothing but set myself up to fail and allow myself to get hurt over and over again. Now, that pretty much counteracts all of The Bon’s core values, don’t you think? Yeah. I thought so too.

Over the course of the last few months I have allowed someone very close to me beat me down and guilt trip me into believing that I was the bad guy or I was doing everything wrong. When the reality of it is, they are the one with the problem, not me. They are the one that can’t admit to burning every bridge they’ve ever built and making everyone around them feel like they are a worthless pile of trash. Well, I decided that I’m going to take control of the situation and do what’s best for me. I will no longer let this person ruin all of the good things going on in my life, nor will I let them distract me from what’s truly important.

So, to all of you out there that have someone in your life that is weighing you down and making you lose sight of who you are, know that you aren’t alone. If you don’t need that kind of negativity in your life (and I guarantee you don’t), then it’s time to cut them loose and move on! I think everyone, including The Bon, should take a second and reflect on what kind of people you want in your life. Whether it’s a family member, significant other, or best friend, you don’t deserve to be walked all over. No one does.

As 2016 comes to an end I will be eliminating all of the drama from my life and focusing on what makes me happy. I encourage each and every one of you to do the same. Always remember – what others think of you and say about you is completely irrelevant to how you live your life.  At the end of the day the only opinion that matters is yours. #YouDoYou loud and proud. #BonItOut with positive vibes.

    Hey imcassie I love gymnastics cheer and dance but I’m having to teach my self and I want to go out for cheerleading next year but the cheerleaders are saying I don’t have a chance I go to lchs Lumpkin county high school what should I do quit.

    • Never quit. Keep trying. Practice makes perfect. Keep up the good work. I believe in you.
      Go to the try out, the worst thing that happens is that you don’t make it and you can try again next year. Either way you will come out better than before. It doesn’t matter what those cheerleaders say about you – you can always prove them wrong. Just believe in yourself and never give up. If cheerleading makes you happy, then no one can take that away from you.

    There are 2 kids that are always being rude to me. They always make fun of my name because, my name is Siri. And lately I’ve been going through tough things that are happening to my family. Also this kid sits right next to me on the bus and I’m trying to stand up for myself but everyone is supporting him. He’s being really rude and saying rumors about me even though he doesn’t know a single thing about me. Sometimes I feel really bad, and he won’t stop. The other person is mean but not as mean as the first guy. But what should i do to stop them from hurting my feelings?

    • One thing that you could try doing is just being honest with them and letting them know that they are hurting your feelings. Let them know that you don’t appreciate it and that it’s not very nice. If you don’t want to try that, seeing as you’ve already tried by standing up for yourself, then you could try ignoring them. If you don’t react to the things they say to you then they’ll eventually lose interest in picking on you. I would suggest that you talk to an adult that you trust, either at home or at school. Let them know what is going on and tell them how you are feeling. They might be able to talk to the kids or lend a helping hand. You are very strong and you know what’s right and wrong. You are doing nothing wrong and I don’t want you to take any of what they say to heart. I know how hard that can be though. Please keep your head up and stay positive. Whatever rude thing they say to you isn’t true, please don’t buy into it. Keep you head up and stay beautiful. You got this, I believe in you.
