All to often I will find myself getting caught up in other people’s perception of what my life is like or that they don’t take into account who I am and where I came from and the struggles that I went through or go through on a daily basis. They may not be the same struggles as they have and for some that makes me someone who is not understanding or it bring down my value and my worth. It makes them feel better to vent out their own frustrations and struggles. I find myself getting caught up in their words and allow those words to tear me down inside. I find myself analyzing myself and what they said and how it pertains to me. Can you relate? Well…I am working on this on the daily.
This is NOT healthy and most of the time it was not really a slam at me or who I am but more a reflection of something deeper that they are dealing with on a personal level.
In our world we depend so much on the acceptance and understanding of other people and that will never change. BUT something I work on for ME is to stop and shake off the negative feelings that I was feeling. Honestly, It doesn’t define me. I CANNOT take it personal. It does more harm than good to me and my positive attitude which I have come to be so protective of. I will NEVER be everyone’s cup of tea and not everyone will agree with what I say and or do. However…I can not let this deter me from letting my light shine and being who I am.
Point being…Your day will go on. You have the choice to allow someone else’s words tear you down or to let them roll off of you and keep moving forward. You cannot let the acceptance or non acceptance of others dull you or your purpose in this life. You were created in HIS image and that is the only YES that matters.
Your Purpose cannot depend on someone else’s YES.
Just random thoughts this morning. SHINE ON! SHINE ON!! Have an amazing day!
