Don't be the same, Be Better!

Don't be the same, be better! 

Had an episode with a friend the other day (I know we've have all had one) where I just had to be better, it's sad to say it but I just had to. 

It's so bad when people jump to a conclusion without knowing all of the facts. This is why we are in the state that we are in, this world it's full of people that do this and I'm so sad to say I had someone like this around me. 

I do my best to stay positive about everything that happens to me even when someone I classified as a friend starts to become negative, bitter and unreasonable.

"What are you talking about Jay?"

Well let me explain...

I had a friend/colleague that we used to share ideas and communicate to each other on a level that was very refreshing and we would put some light on to an industry, that to me is all about collaboration.

So this friend of mine sent me a text the other day, which I didn't really understand. I called them with no response, so I sent a text as I wanted to find out what was actually going on. I got no reply even when I had tried for a number of days but not even getting a hello back. 

The text had implied I had gone behind this persons back and done something to break our friendship. Not being able to understand what this person was talking about, naturally I wanted to sort this out. 

A few weeks have passed now and I am still none the wiser about what I have done to lose a friend. 

The reason for this blog is not to put a friend in a bad light but to show you how you don't have to be the same as other people, be better. 

If a friend, family member, work colleague, business partner, relationship partner or child doesn't value you, should you do the same as them, or be better? 

I choose, be better. 

Sometimes in life things happen, they only want to drag you down to a level  that could, can and will take you lower than you need or want to be in your life. It is really hard to spot, feel or even recognise them but when they come from a friend or partner who you believe is the same as you. It's very hard to be better, purely because you are the same.
