Accept that, not everyone is going to be for you. Accept that, even if they aren’t for you, it doesn’t matter… you still can be happy – if you make the decision to be happy.
Don’t give people power over you. You were built to stand alone, if need be. So, never compromise your integrity with someone… just to fit in, or to be liked.
Fame is ‘fool’s gold’. That’s why GOD said, [“Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.” ~ Luke 6:26]. So, you don’t need it.
Accepting a thing does not necessarily mean you have to be happy about it… it just means recognizing it for what it is and letting it be that way. And accepting that as a Christian, there are some things that you will have to overlook… because you can’t get to the bottom of everything, or solve every problem to your own liking.
Whatever other people do to you, it’s not between you and them… it’s between you and GOD. GOD says, “Vengeance is mine… I will repay.” Therefore, what’s more important to GOD – and to you – is that you always:
- Show kindness
- Show love
- Show compassion
- Be considerate
- Be generous
Don’t change… because of how people treat you, if they treat you negatively. Show how genuine you are as a Christian. Showing LOVE is GOD’s way… but revenge, is surely, the world’s way. However, at the end of the day… the choice is yours.
YOU can’t always choose what happens to you… or how people will treat you. No matter how badly you might want to choose, it’s out of your control.
But what’s exciting is, YOU are in complete control of your response. YOU decide what actions you take. You decide the value every event will bring to YOU…simply by choosing to respond positively under ever circumstance. Decide to be happy… and happiness will be yours.
