Don’t rain on my parade

Is it raining?

Is it raining?

“Don’t tell me not to fly, I simply got to. If someone takes a spill, it’s me and not you.Who told you you’re allowed to rain on my parade?”

Why is it that when people see others doing well, that they have to remind them of something bad? Or they will examine what the person is doing – down to the tiniest detail – simply to find something that they can say is wrong? Often times people will hide jealousy and malice behind a guise of “constructive criticism” with the purpose of helping a person do better. Was this really what they are trying to do when their criticism has left the person feeling full of doubt and saddened.

As a whole, people can be very judgmental.  Someone got a position that we wanted and, instead of being happy and encouraging, we’d make a fuss about how we never wanted the job anyway, or even how it isn’t that great. Someone finishes a project that you know they’ve worked hard on for days and, instead of offering them a pat on the back, we’ll shrug and say that what they did was simply ‘okay’ and point out the things we don’t like. This doesn’t apply to everyone – it may not even apply to you – but it is possible that you seen this behavior.

If the good thing didn’t happen to them, if they’re not benefiting positively from the circumstance, then they will be there to rain on your parade. Don’t let them.  Don’t listen to the people who want to darken your blue skies.  Pay no attention to the people who want to keep you down instead of being happy for your achievements.  If people want to rain on your parade, let them.  Jump in the puddles they’ve made and splash them with your success.
