You’re going to meet many people with domineering personalities: the loud, the obnoxious, those that noisily stake their claims in your territory and everywhere else they set foot on. This is the blueprint of a predator. Predators prey on gentleness, peace, calmness, sweetness and any positivity that they sniff out as weakness. Anything that is happy and at peace they mistake for weakness. It’s not your job to change these people, but it’s your job to show them that your peace and gentleness do not equate to weakness. I have always appeared to be fragile and delicate but the thing is, I am not fragile and I am not delicate. I am very gentle but I can show you that the gentle also possess a POWER. I compare myself to silk. People mistake silk to be weak but a silk handkerchief can protect the wearer from a gunshot so my husband told me. There are many people who will want to befriend you if you fit the description of what they think is weak; predators want to have friends that they can dominate over because that makes them feel strong and important. The truth is that predators have no strength and no courage. It is you who are strong, and it is you who has courage. I have lost many friendship over the fact that when they attempt to rip me, they can’t. They accuse me of being a sob; I am not a sob, I am just made of silk. It is they who are deceitful and wrongly take gentleness and fairness for weakness. There are many more predators in this world, so I want you to be made of silk. You




  1. this is really awesome post.

    The same thing has happened to me as well. I was a true n compassionate friend to my friends but they think that am weak and feeble… they misunderstood my motives of friendship to be a needy am just recovering from the hurt and betrayal from a close friend whom I thought to be a friend n sister but in the end only used my friendship for her needs n never showed any appreciation for my efforts in my friendship .

    so am building walls around my heart so that I don’t be attached emotionally with anyone …

  2. That is so true! Thanks for sharing! I also love your designs. I am in Australia and am wondering how I can order your designs. I have a clothing business and fell in love with your designs when I saw them on Pinterest.

    Looking forward to hearing from you!

  3. You’re right about that. People mistake your gentleness and quietness for weakness. When you now stand your ground they take offence. I am proud to say I’m made of silk.
    Thanks for sharing and God bless the great work you’re doing.
