Let's get real for just one second. Okay? Sounds good? Thought so. We all have ticks, you know those little things that bug the hell out of us. Those things that if touched can make us EXPLODE with rage; that most of us hide and keep deep inside.
What makes us tick? The sole purpose of some peoples being to harm others and to make my life hell is what makes me tick. The ones who don't work hard but get the world handed to them on a silver platter is what used to make me tick. Used to, for many reasons. I stopped being upset and mad at those who didn't work hard and don't have to because of mommy and daddy. I stopped being made for those people instead I felt sorry and started to pray for them. Why? Well let's face it, those who get things handed down to them with no moral work ethic applied, are the ones who will be lost later on in life. So why be upset? Not everyone has the same journey or can understand what someone else is going through. So with that said, and with that thought, I stopped.
What makes you tick? Think real deep. Is it that baby daddy or mama you have? Is it that friend who you secretly don't like, or is it that job you have that hardly pays the bills but has you working harder than your body can take? I think it's safe to say that we all have things that can make is tick.... get us mad and some of those things are inevitable. Take a big person time out.... take a minute go in your room and sit in silence, no Facebook, IG or Twitter; no networking or texting. Just sit there with you and your thoughts. Breathe deep and ask yourself "what makes me tick?"
As your mind starts to process everything gather up all those things write them down and burn it. What I noticed is that we sit on things. We hibernate on these thoughts and people that piss us off just because we were hurt. Let go.. some of you guys' problem is that you don't want to let go or don't honestly know how. You would rather hold on to that pain in hopes of that thing or person coming back and saying "sorry". Or what I noticed you will hold onto that "tick" and use it as a cruch, an excuse for your behavior.
Don't give those ticks power..... Easier said than done, I know. One thing that set me free was writing them down and burning it.
What makes you tick?
