The Little Voice

Hello Wild Ones 💘💘💘

I hope you are well and that great things are happening for you. My prayer is that you know how awesome you are. I am currently really proud of how awesome I am and the dope things I continue to do.

Today’s Commercial Break

This poem is inspired by recent events in my comments and emails. I honestly feel confused about why anyone would just feel it’s okay to just match into someone’s space and be mean and inconsiderate. I was just minding my own business and then someone came at me for no reason. When I wake up in the morning, the first place I visit is my blog so I find someone commented something mean on this post. Since I have a new sense of being where I don’t let people treat me badly, my first reaction was to type a very long and emotional response. Then I caught myself and realized that my blog is a positive space so I just tried to respond with kindness. Do I think I could have done better? Yes. I could have deleted the message and replied in private. That’s what I am going to do from now henceforth but I going to keep that comment there since I feel petty and maybe people can learn that I am nice but that doesn’t mean I am a doormat.

Little Voice

He says ‘You are no enough’

Little Voice say ‘ You are enough’

She says ‘ You are too much’

Little voice say ‘You are just fine’

They say ‘You are proud’

Little voice say ‘ There’s nothing wrong with celebrating yourself’

They say ‘ You are not loved’

Little Voice say ‘ I love you so much’

They say ‘You are difficult’

Little Voice say ‘ Your poetry is chosen few’

They say with no context and compassion

Little voice knows and loves

Know your little voice🌞🌞

The world is noisy

    Hello friend. People can be so mean sometimes, don’t take it personally it say nothing about yourself but a lot about themselves. Be strong and always know your potential then people will start feeling intimidated. ❤️❤️❤️

    Well done for rising above it.
    Perhaps I am a bit petty, but if someone felt it was necessary to leave a negative comment on a post of mine, constructive or not, I would leave it there for the world to see. If they feel it’s ok to talk to people like that, then it can very well be viewed by others, so they can see their true colours. ^_^

      I relate to this way of thinking too. It’s so hard to decide what to do with their comment. I felt like I had been handed a burden I couldn’t deal with.

    The world is noisy but we don’t focus on that..we don’t and won’t get caught up in the noise…
    What do we say to the mean? “Not today devil, not today!”

      I love this Doreen. ‘Not today Devil, not today.’❤💕. Thank you for the love.

    As someone who gossips I really went on your comments lol. I get the comment as being sarcastic, and as a sarcastic person as I am, I would choose my audience and channel. The thing about sarcastic comments, it can be taken in another way like you said in your reply. And, yes blogging awards is not just simply an award, it’s a way to connect with other bloggers. Anyways, like Selena Gomez sings Kill Em With Kindness ☺️❤️

      🤣🤣 Joanna You made me laugh, the way you announced that you gossip is funny. It’s actually the other comment about blogging is not a competition. That’s the one that got me mad. I felt attacked. like why would you just come and say that… then I projected the insecurity in the sarcastic comment.😪😪😪. But yeah…. Kill them with Kindness.

      1. Joana says:

        Oh I thought it was the first one but yeah I saw that too but I was triggered by the first one 😂. Maybe they view blogging awards as literal awards where we get trophies and stuff lol just kidding. Thankfully, I haven’t gotten any comments like those so far but if I do, I can get petty too but most of the time ignoring it would be the best option.

        Come on, we all gossip a little 😉 hahaha. I am a gossip girl 😂 xoxo

        1. jackie says:

          True ignoring them is the best thing. I realized that once I responded I became invested in waiting for a response and I really hated feeling like that. I had dug a rabbit hole.

          True Gossip is sweet. I am actually on reddit for the Drama.

    2. jackie says:

      And thank you for making me smile.

  5. I’m so sorry someone was mean to you dear. Echoing your words “the world is noisy” indeed it is. I’m glad your inner voice speaks to you more. Sorry once more. Maybe just an add-on encouragement from Milkah Njambi’s song~ Gichuri she says “Ngugiginyana na andu aya, hinge matu ndikamaigue” that’s kikuyu for “amidst the noise of the world, just close your ears to it”

    Keep the great stuff going 🙂

    As always, well written Jackie. We all have emotional outburst at times, even those of us that actively work on our emotional regulation as a regular part of our life. You are not alone, and you are loved. Be well.❤️
