Depression, Relationships and Connections to Other People
The Midweek Muse
...a little inspiration to get you over the hump!
It has been awhile since I have done a mid-week muse. I think today is a perfect day to do one.
When you suffer from depression, relationships and connections to other people are very important. It is vital to be around postive and supportive friends and loved ones. But some people are not good for us and it is wise to know the difference. There are those people who intrude where they should not intrude. There are some people best described as toxic. Many of the toxic people are fake. They are the ones who would smile in your face and then slice and dice you. Or prey on you when you are vulnerable. I am sure many of you have encountered such people. You know it when they are around because your gut tells you. If you get a sick feeling when you are around certain people, this is probably a good sign that this individual is toxic for you.
The group, TLC, wrote about such people. Here are some of the lyrics to their song: "Case of the Fake People."
"Case Of The Fake People"
I thought that I knew about 'em
Thought that they would never do me wrong
Well well they smile in your face
When all the time they wanna take your place
Same old scene that
You've seen for so long
Always want to be around you
But as jealous as they come
Well don't want you to win that race
'Cause if you do it's gonna lessen their space
That's when I decide to say
[Chorus] Goodbye, goodbye
To all the fake people in my life
I never wanted you around me
So be on your way now
You better think twice
