On The Talk, Sheryl Underwood revealed that she was in negotiations to join the Queens of Comedy tour to replace Mo’Nique who had went on to do the TV sitcom The Parkers. Upon dialling into a conference call early she over heard Sommore, Adele Givens and Laura Hayes talking about her. They discussed everything from her ability as a comedian to her appearance. As a result she declined the offer to join the tour. She never mentioned it to them nor did she allow it to impede her ability to work with some of the ladies in the future since that incident.
Sheryl explains she was “bruised but not broken” by what they said. Look at where she is now. She chose not to let their words hinder her she simply moved on in forgiveness. Even more so she progressed and flourished in her career. Not going on that tour just may have been a blessing in disguise.
I was so amazed listening to this. Normally I would put this on my Faith And I blog but this message is so universal. You can choose to hold on to hurt and pain or you can move on. People are going to say what they want about you but you must not let them define you. Do not let anybody but God determine who you are and who you are to become.
