Naysayers -Tell Them To Shut Up — 31 Comments

  1. I always feel like the new year is perfect to stop wasting time on people who bring little value to your life. Say no to the naysayers in 2015!

  2. It’s unfortunate that in this world, people will drag you down more often than they will try to lift you up. I think much boils down to values of teamwork, respect etc. along with the perseverance that each person must, within themselves; possess in order to become successful.

  3. Great advice! I get so tired of hearing people be negative and try to squash your dreams. I love the quotes that you shared in this post. (Real Talk Moms).

  4. This is my new motto, I had to let a few people go this year. They will only get my behind to kiss moving forward.

  5. I’ve never had a problem with telling people to shut up or mind their business. This is why people think I’m crazy lol. I love this post though. It will help someone who needs to hear it.

    • I like your attitude. Sometimes the best thing we can say to people is for them to mind their business and shut up! If they get ma andn leave us alone it is better for us all.

  6. The older I get, the more comfortable I am with who I am. It bothers me less and less what other people think and say. And, I’ve had more time to prove myself so there are less people around saying “You can’t” or “You shouldn’t”…I already have. 🙂

  7. It can be really hard to ignore negative people, but I never let them drag me down and I encourage my kids to do the same.

    • I agree, I am teaching my children this lesson now while they are young. I hope this will make it easier for them to brush off naysayers as they get older.

  8. I totally agree! It’s hard to ignore the negative people, but it’s because they’re the devil on our shoulders. I do my best to ignore them though.

  9. I think there is a song out right now that says…”Shake it Off, Shake it Off!” Like Abe Lincoln said, you can’t please ALL the people, ALL the time!

  10. I quit listening to naysayers years and years ago. It is one of the positive things about aging. You just don’t care about that kind of thing anymore.

  11. I just ignore people who doubt me. I used to hear a lot of naysayers when I started homeschooling my kids. Now two of them are in college with scholarships, and the naysayers have disappeared.

    • Yes! Sometimes it is hard to ignore the naysayers, especially when we have doubts ourselves. During those hard times, it is even more important that we ignore and shut out the naysayers.

Tell me what you think.
