“She sounds like a freakin’ Self-Help Book!”
Yes, I know ladies. And I sincerely apologize for being cliché. But I have to be honest. Being a diva, being whatever you want to be, begins inside. You have to decide that not only do you want to be a diva, you are a diva. The wonderful thing about being a diva is that no one can tell you a damn thing! You are smart, strong and have a spine made of steel. You’re not opposed to suggestions, maybe even constructive criticism, because one can always do better. But negativity does not bother you. You do not ingest it into your system. It cannot permeate you. Oh, this takes some getting used to. You may cringe on the inside when someone says something hurtful to you, at first. But fake it until you make it. Pretend that the negativity doesn’t bother you until you get to the point that it doesn’t. A true diva understands that most negativity comes from feelings of jealousy or inadequacy. It is a weakness and a diva sees right through these types of individuals.
It may take a while to reach this point, but once you decide that you know yourself better than anyone else, it would literally take the force of Christ himself to tear you down.
