Attack Of The Dream Killers
By Blissed Out Belle on January 30, 2013
“Aha….I got it!” Another brilliant idea had suddenly popped in my head, and I couldn’t wait to share it with my friends and family. Seeking the support and approval of the people closest to me, I disclosed my latest plans, but to my surprise my idea didn’t receive rave reviews. So, what’s the big deal? Sounds like they came down with the case of the ‘Dream Killers‘!
Dream Killers’ would consider themselves realists, though I would consider them as uber pessimists. These are the individuals that project their own limitations onto others; and some of them mean well and others don’t. The ones that mean well, don’t want to see you get hurt by having your hopes too high and getting disappointed. On the other hand, there are those who aim to discourage or sabotage at all cost, because in their mind if your winning; their losing.
The malicious dream killers’ have intent to inflict hurt, discourage, and minimize the attempts of others. These are the people who usually sit on the sidelines not being key players in their own lives. These are the Fault Finders, Negative Nancy’s, and the crabs-in-a-bucket. They can’t help but give you a reason why you can’t do something, as opposed figuring out ways that you can. Negative dream killers’ squirm in their bed at night because they are uncomfortable in their own skin, and are completely unhappy with their life. These are the realist or pessimists of life, who were probably disappointed in the past, because they gave up on their own dreams. It’s unfortunate that this exists, however you can be triumphant even without support.
