The Turkey’s in Life

I’m sure many of you have run into the people that are just overall emotionally manipulative. They try harder than anyone to make you feel that if they are NOT happy then you certainly won’t be. I’ve been around a few of those types here recently, and it was really beginning to drive me into a corner.

Thankfully, (as what usually happens), I talked to a mentor of mine whom I really respect.  He offered me a great piece of advice.  He reminded me that emotional manipulators only have control over you if you allow them to have it.

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” (Thank you Eleanor Roosevelt!)

So to those of you who may be feeling a bit out of sorts or overburdened by the expectations of others, I will now share a phrase with you that my mentor shared with me in closing:

“How can you soar with the eagles if you let the turkeys get you down?”

So don’t let the turkeys get you down- unless, of course, it’s Thanksgiving and nap time! 😉 Love to all of my eagles out there!

Soar on!
