ain’t it funny…
how you can be respected and admired by so many people,
but you care when that one or two irrelevants don’t like you?
why is that?
why does everything positive about us go down the toilet when an asshole spits shit?
its like celebs who will only respond to negativity.
why do some of us hold what people think about us to such a high standard?…
i don’t really care what people think of me.
that isn’t an aggressive statement.
its meant to be.
some things people say do hurt my feelings.
my insides are not a freezer.
in my growing up awkward teen phase,
i cared way too much what people thought.
i wouldn’t express myself due to people thinking i was gay.
i tried to fit in with the “straight wolves”,
but crazy enough,
i still stood out from everyone else.
i wasn’t fuckin’ a ton of bitches.
i wasn’t playin’ ball.
sure i played video games and watched sports,
but i wasn’t doing what the “boys” did.
as much as you think you are “fitting in”,
you are different and people can tell.
i don’t have the energy to obsess what people think of me negatively.
i got a foxhole to run and success to achieve.
hell i went to work in some lime green socks last week.
my pants cuffs were tucked in so they stood out even more.
i saw some of the hood wolves look at me crazy.
liar liar was as well.
ask me where was my fucks?
it wasn’t until one of the big VPs said to me the next day:
“i really liked what you had on yesterday.
those socks were bright.
it takes someone with real guts and a sense of fashion to attempt that.
you have that.”
i didn’t even know he saw me.
hell i didn’t even see him.
so while the rest were lookin’ at me weird,
a top VP in the fashion industry had me in his radar.
hell while liar liar is lowkey trying to hoe with work wolf,
he is busy up in my face with the compliments.
all she is getting is nut on the face.
who is winning these rounds over and over?
no need to take offense with small people’s opinions.
here is how i want you to approach criticism via the foxhole way:
whether someone says something about you,
positive or negative,
there is a message in the mess.
people say things on this site about me all the time.
some shit can be out of pocket,
but i’m at the point in life where i can receive constructive criticism.
you see the responses i get about work wolf.
i don’t cry or curl up in a ball.
i’m a man who takes pipe.
i think i can take a few harsh words that could potentially get me right.
also pay attention to:
short term results
long term results
you could go off on someone who offends you.
i have before and it did nothing.
if you know you have your shit together for the long term,
why would you waste your time defending short term attention?
people will always have something to say.
people who ain’t got shit or life worse off than you will always throw tomatoes.
it will be hateful,
said with the wrong intentions,
or stem from jealousy and envy.
you can tell when its mean.
just plain ol mean!
when someone actually takes the time to give you tough love,
you know its coming from a genuine place.
its said to inspire you.
the tough love doesn’t come with an umbrella.
you won’t have to wonder if they were coming at you on the sneak.
it will make you a better human being.
so stop being so fuckin’ sensitive.
a word i actually hate,
can help improve your life when you dissect the message.
