I remember my father using the term “dream killer” when we were having a conversation about the relationship I was in at the time. Now I can understand my father’s concern at that time because he feared that the relationship I was in was going to kill some inner dreams. Well fast forward some years later, I understood what that meant….. The outcome of that wrong relationship was me becoming a single mother. Now, being a single mother does not stop me from pursuing my dreams but I have to navigate the paths to those dreams a little differently.
What is a Dream-killer? Anything that moves in opposition to the dream that you are pursuing. The top “dream-killer” I want to shine light on is wrong relationships. I didn’t say “a relationship” , but “wrong relationships” can keep you from going further in life. The right relationships will propel you into your future, while the wrong relationships will keep you from it. This was a hard lesson for me because I have sacrificed my time, my value, and even my morals for the sake of not being alone. This is not to say that people are bad but people can have bad behavior, bad values, bad morals, and even bad lifestyles that have the potential to railroad your life.
Life is too valuable to waste on the wrong people. It takes maturity to deny the relationships that are not for you and be willing to wait for the ones that are right for you. Saying goodbye to those “dream killers” can be one of the greatest things you can do this year even if you have to fight through the tears and emotions to do it. To be honest, some of us know who we need to let go, and who we DON’T need to let back into our lives. Let’s BE WISE.
As always… feel free to leave your comments and share your thoughts! Until tomorrow, be wise my peeps!
