Black Sheep in the Family? What’s Your Level of Enlightenment?

are you the black sheep in the family? asking who we are is pivotal to self-discovery which leads to a self-love lifestyle.

Who Are You? A Black Sheep in the Family like us? Who Are You Talking To?

Have you ever wondered, “what the hell is wrong with these people?” Well, we figured out what works for us and it has changed our life for the better.  Figuring out ourselves and the people around us led us directly to our Self-Love, Peace, and Purpose.  

Determine who you are and who you’re talking to. In every situation, you will know what to expect, not expect, and know how to respond accurately, appropriately, and efficiently (Strategic Energy).   Learn where you’re at in your Self-Discovery, the people around you, and where your future is headed. 

The following percentages are a symbolic representation of the majority of the people in the world.  This model is to be used as a guide to navigating people and scenarios.   

98’s- “The Sleeping Wide Awake.” 

98% of the people around you will display these similar characteristics when we understand how they operate; we can better know what to expect and learn how to adapt and flow.  

Characteristics of a 98’s

  • Fear-Based: They use emotional and physical violence as a means of control.  They manipulate with worry, shame, and guilt which all are fear-based concepts.  
  • Judgmental:  They are using their judgment to shame you
  • Thrives on Hierarchy in Titles:  They think (mother, father, brother, sister, preacher, teacher, etc.) gives them the right to emotionally, physically abuse you.  They also use their “title” to guilt you into staying.  
  • Lives in Victimhood: They position themself as the victim in every situation to be the center of attention; when they have your attention, they have control.  (it’s also used as a distraction) 
  • Resistant to Change:  They refuse to get out of their comfort zone.  
  • Lives in the Past:  Can’t let go of the past. coulda, shoulda, woulda
  • Enables Bad Behavior:  They enable you to fail.  They co-sign on the behavior you know you shouldn’t be engaging in.

If any of the people around you have any of these characteristics, you need to look at your life.  If you surround yourself with these types of people, you will never grow.  These are the people that hold you back from moving forward.  When you start your self-discovery, you will begin to see how dangerous these people are to your Self-Love.   If you want to be inspired, grow and live in your purpose, you will have to release these people from your life.  You also have to be okay with them not being there and willing to connect with new people that align with your goals.  “Never argue with a fool; onlookers may not be able to tell the difference” Mark Twain.  “Don’t debate a 98” MakeLifeanOccasion!
