Good intentions, good actions, good feelings, etc ; they’re all pointless if the person receiving them has a bad attitude.If a pessimistic person is convinced that you don’t care, nothing you say or do will change their mind.You can be consistent, you can be honest, & you can be loyal but if they’re scared to trust, you wont get anywhere.Stop trying to prove yourself to people who just aren’t trying to see what you’re showing.You shouldn’t always need a compliment to have confidence. Self-worth should never be determined or validated by others.
What people say about you is what people say about you. Don’t stress the things you can’t control.There’s no point in addressing everybody coming at you. Some people only speak on you to get attention from you.Secure people are comfortable being hated for who they are; the insecure seek love trying to be something they’re not.If the “real you” is ever questioned, the people who matter will know the truth & the one’s who don’t won’t believe you anyway .It’s foolish to seek approval in people that have no authority; understand that every person passing judgment isn’t a judge.
The Gospel according to St. Matthew 7 :”Judge not, that ye be not judged.For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.”
How you portray yourself is the way people will perceive you and the way you treat yourself is how people will treat you.Self respect is the only respect that matters. When you respect yourself, your presence alone commands it from others.“Fight to maintain your character, not your reputation; character is who you really are, reputation is merely what others think of you”
Sometimes you’ll find yourself feeling like it’s you against the world & in those times you need to know how to encourage yourself.If you don’t know how to build yourself up, you’ll fall for anybody trying to break you down.
God will do what He said He will do. Just stand by His word.
