                                           Why Family Hurt Is So Painful

It feels especially painful when our family members hurt us, it actually is more painful than when friends hurt us. We hold cultural beliefs that our family members will be there for us unconditionally- thats why when the damage is done it hurts so bad. Their manipulation, drama, neediness, criticism, jealousy, and other negative traits can drain you emotionally and make you feel bad about yourself. 

They do not take the time to offer you support or even ask you how you doing but they are the first ones to drag your name down in the gutters, instead of them been so proud of the person you want to become. You start pulling yourself away from them because you tired of been judged, you tired of all the gossiping behind your back, but that won't be enough for some of them.. They want to see you suffer, they want to see you sad. You start feeling numb around them and start having a no care attitude and when u do- they will turn everything on you- really sad. 
You cannot be yourself around them because the minute you turn your back there are talks about you, so what do we do, we rather turn to strangers.. The thing with family is that you cannot just cut ties with them, because there are family reunions etc and you will have to meet up with them. I have stayed away from a lot of family gatherings, trying to avoid these issues- even funerals.
I have been so disappointed by family members, involving me in things that I knew nothing about, my name always been dragged even though I live so far. My name always on their lips. 
I did a lot of thinking, and this may be because one thing for sure is that I will never change myself because they expect me to be this prim and proper girl. I am Chantal, I will always be Chantal, take me, leave me, I will remain been true to myself..
I woke up to a text this morning that boiled me so badly, but after speaking to a few people, I told myself that I should be glad that I am always on their lips. If they not speaking about you then what are you doing with your life.. My life has been their entertainment, and I will continue been their entertainment, but I play by my own rules. If you not paying my bills or putting food on my table then why should I care what you say...

One thing is for sure is that we need to remember that the wheels of justice do turn, you maybe having everything your heart desires - driving expensive car's, living in the biggest house, having money all the time and I maybe still living in my 2 bedroom flat that I work hard for on my own.. But one silly day you may need this "poor girl", "one silly day".

            Stick to been you, stay in your lane, Love yourself more and stay true...😘

Gossip Dies when it hits a wise person's ears

I always worried about what people said, I was always insecure. I think I started feeling like this from a very early age. In high school it was even worse. Lot's of girl's in school never liked me, so I always had a wall built up. I was gossiped about so many times. I will never forget the day I found out I was pregnant, I was still in school, I confided in a close friend- I should of never have done that because before I knew it, it was out. I was laughed at, I was mocked at and I believe that a lot of those people including some family members thought I will not make anything of myself because I "RUINED" my life.. I showed all of them that nothing will bring me down and up till this day I keep on shining no matter what life throws at me. Even me not been married at my age get's talked about- mainly by woman who are married. I have no clue why some married woman feel the need to look down on us single woman (we not interested in stealing your man, so what then.…

Never take a good woman for granted.....

 Never take a good woman for granted...
Men are quicker to move on, but usually live in regret. Woman usually take nonsense on; repeatedly and never think they are able to leave but once they do they go for good. When a woman says Enough is Enough, she will never change her mind. We are forgiving and patient. We are forgiving up to a certain extent. Never taker "her" patience for granted (once she is tired there is no way she will turn back). We take on a lot of terrible treatment from our people before we can actually stand on our feet and say this is ENOUGH.

A woman's tolerance can only go up to a certain extent. Some of us woman do not want to bear the embarrassment from family and friends for telling them our struggles. We do not want people to tell us when the time is right to leave. We will reach that stage on our own and know when the time is right. Men have to constantly stay on top of their game to make sure she is the Queen in their lives and she does get treated…

What was my biggest challenge for having my own business..

     What was my biggest challenge for having my own business..
My biggest challenge for wanting to have my own business was having an unsupportive partner, having a full time job and been a mother of 3…
In 2018 I needed to take charge of my life again, one step at a time..
1st was letting go of my partner, then I finally started doing things that I loved, like starting my small business- selling cars, also selling a weight loss product and then also starting my blog… it was still challenging for me to juggle everything because my full time job took most of my time, coming home and been attentive to my kids was important to me but I had to also make sure to make extra cash so that they are always comfortable.
Beginning of 2019 I was approached by one of my dear friends Dominic Carrim about an exciting opportunity…
She told me about it and I was hesitant and told her that I heard about Nuskin and I am not really interested (she was persistent and told me Chantal I know this is for you ;take…
