LET IT GO

via Daily Prompt: Fret

Fret

If you are being ridiculed
There’s no need to fret
Don’t let the others get to you
Let it go…go straight to bed.

A good night’s sleep’s the answer
You’ll feel better when you wake
Don’t let the “jellies” get to you
Forget them for goodness sake.

They are just small-minded
Selfish bullies in disguise
Don’t let them get the best of you
Don’t let them see you cry.

Stand up and don’t you worry
About what they do or say
You’ll be better off without them
They’re just getting in your way.

If all they want is to make fun
Of you and what you wear
They’re really awfully shallow
Why should you really care?

You are going places
They will stay behind
You will have the last laugh
You will blow their minds.

A real friend’s always there for you
And wouldn’t make you cry
It’s time for you to just move on
It’s time to say, Goodbye.

  1. Bullied through high school, I always let what people said get to me. Until I finally learned how to deal with them. When I laughed right back in their faces, or just shrugged and casually dismissed them, they lost power over me. And it stopped being fun for them.

    1. This was exactly what I needed to read. I’m very behind on my reading so I would have seen this eventually but it was something I needed to see right now. I’m going to reblog this because it is a beautiful response to how I’m feeling (even though that wasn’t written just for me….It could have been 😉)

  2. I love this!

    “A good night’s sleep’s the answer
    You’ll feel better when you wake”. So true! Part of my problem today is insufficient sleep last night. But for me the best part is:

    “You are going places
    They will stay behind
    You will have the last laugh
    You will blow their minds.”

    This is exactly what is happening. Part of my fear is that these are people who feel they can only build themselves up by bringing others down. It’s a world I used to live in (was subjected to) but I can’t let that continue!

    Thanks so much for.your great post!
