You Gotta Stay Prayed Up!!! If you don't know, let me be the first to tell you. Once you decide to live your life according to the "Authentic YOU", you will often be in the presence of "VAMPIRES".. People that are ready to suck your dreams, joy and peace right out of you. It's unfortunate, some "Vamps" don't know what they do or who they are, but isn't that always the case. We really don't realize how bad things are until we get out of the situation. So you have to stay prayed up. God has given me the ability to see a "VAMP" a mile away and sorry I just don't have nothing to give you.
Some of them truly don't mean any harm, they just don't believe in themselves, so when you come along talking your "BIG TALK" about dreams, goals and etc they don't understand you and what do most people do when they don't understand something, instead of trying to learn more about it, they will find a way to suck the life right out of it and if you're not strong enough, they'll have you thinking the same way and if you hang around people with this characteristic it's easy to adopt their habits.
So for starters be very careful of who you tell your dreams too. Secondly, STAY PRAYED UP, because sometimes you will not realize you are in the presence of a "Vamp" until they have sucked you dry.. Thirdly, Stay focused and stand strong in who you are and the person that you're becoming.
