Green Snake In The Green Grass

Why do some people pretend to be friendly and supportive, when really they are not? Why is it that some people want to appear to be all things to all people, but are really not at all genuine and perhaps a little bit jealous of you? Why would some people rather choke, than give you a kind word or ask about your news? Even when it’s the most obvious ‘next’ question when exchanging pleasantries? How infuriating! But also, how funny! My grandmother, and subsequently my mother, would say, ‘Beware of the green snake in the green grass!’. It’s quite telling, isn’t it, when such people go out of their way NOT to be kind, or polite, or, well, simply pleasant. It takes more of an effort to be difficult and confrontational, than it does to be kind and conversational. Don’t you think?

So how do you react when such people get under your skin, or in your face?


Ha! I like to give them the biggest, beaming smile that I can muster in that moment. I smile like someone who has just won the lottery! I smile like a chocolate-lover who has just discovered a hidden bar of chocolate at the back of the fridge behind the lettuce! I smile like I am the newly crowned Miss World, declaring that my reign will be dedicated to embracing world peace! Well, I have a bit of fun with it I sup20160227_021116000_iOSpose, whilst I get it out of my system.

The trick is not to let any of these encounters disturb your inner peace. Know that your happiness and joy exists independently of such people. You continue to radiate light and love. Your success is not dependent upon such people. Your beauty and unique gifts are awaited by many people ahead along your path – many of whom you are yet to meet! Let us continue to embrace our passions, as they will lead us to our true purpose. Be brave. Be courageous. Be You!
