Choose Your Battles

Bullying (verb): Use superior strength or influence to intimidate (someone), typically to force him or her to do what one wants

I think the most important lesson I was taught in life is to choose my battles. It's the one advice that has really helped me through business, parenting, and most important, life issues.

Most things in Life are irrelevant. What other people think is definitely one of them. People will always have things to say about your love life, and how you raise your child, your home, your business, your class, etc. Those are insecure people. They are irrelevant.

Life is all about learning, and at times, teaching. Even in High School I was a bit different than my peers. While most were grouped up constantly, I was just fine with one or two close friends. I am a very loyal person and loyalty tends to get diluted in numbers. Therefore, I didn't buy into the "group" mindset then, nor do I now as an adult.

In High School I did a report on Mob Mentality, it was quite interesting. What is even more interesting is I am seeing a lot of that now online and within various cliques. Bullies do come in adult size too.

That is why I choose my battles.... and your clique is definitely not one of them. I have a Special Needs Child to raise and a group of families to help. To your whole crew: Since we aren't friends please stay off my page, do not email my contacts to promote yourself, stop discussing me, and please move on. We can co-exist its apples and oranges. 

Case Closed.

Thank you.
