Attack Of The Dream Killers

5 years ago

“Aha….I got it!” Another brilliant idea had suddenly popped in my head, and I couldn’t wait to share it with my friends and family. Seeking the support and approval of the people closest to me, I disclosed my latest plans, but to my surprise my idea didn’t receive rave reviews. So, what’s the big deal?

The ones that mean well, don’t want to see you get hurt by having your hopes too high and getting disappointed. On the other hand, there are those who aim to discourage or sabotage at all cost, because in their mind if your winning; their losing.

The malicious dream killers’ have intent to inflict hurt, discourage, and minimize the attempts of others. These are the people who usually sit on the sidelines not being key players in their own lives. These are the Fault Finders, Negative Nancy’s, and the crabs-in-a-bucket. They can’t help but give you a reason why you can’t do something, as opposed figuring out ways that you can. Negative dream killers’ squirm in their bed at night because they are uncomfortable in their own skin, and are completely unhappy with their life.
