Life Goes By So Fast; Don’t Waste Too Much Time Being Offended.
You cannot have a good day thinking about who offended you and what didn’t work out. You just can’t. For one thing, you gotta learn how to accept the things you have no control over and can’t change. Trust the fact that God still has the situation under control and if you’re upset about a certain door not opening for you, then trust that God has a much better “Yes” somewhere down the road. Secondly, life is entirely too short to be sitting around worried and upset about what somebody said to or about you. Don’t let petty people ruin your day with little stupid things. Don’t let them feel like you’re just another button they can push because to be honest, some people find pleasure in seeing you bothered and upset. Don’t give people that kind of power of you.
Years ago, I used to be a very offensive person myself. I used to let any and every little smart remark and shady joke get under my skin but man I thank God for growth!! I thank God that I’ve learned how to love myself more. See, I told you self-love is such an important thing and there’s so many levels to it. Loving myself more helps me to brush off pettiness without hesitation. I could care less now what people say about me, their smart remarks, comments, shady jokes and hater tendencies don’t bother me not nearly as much as they use to in the past. I’ve learned to love myself enough to not let what other think about me change what I think about myself. There’s so much strength in loving yourself. Believe that.
Every day we have plenty of opportunities to get angry, stressed out or offended. But what you’re doing when you indulge in these emotions is giving something outside yourself power over your peace and happiness. You can choose to not let little things upset you.
