Before we can speak for ourselves, others speaks for us; we are put into boxes and have labels placed upon us. Before we can find our voice, others declare who we are. Our Identity is under attack each day by a world that is constantly telling us who we are or who we should be. If you’re feeling the burden of other people’s opinions, be comforted by the fact the world is wrong. God is the only one who truly knows who you are and can declare it.
Unfortunately, people will talk. They always have and they always will no matter what you do or say. They will talk about your behavior, the way you dress, decisions you make, talk about you with other people behind closed doors and will put you down. In the past, I have been misunderstood and I have allowed people’s words to hurt me, but I have learned over time that other people’s opinions doesn’t define what I am all about. God and myself knows the truth. I feel that’s enough. I know it’s hard to not get hurt when other people make false opinions about you and say hurtful things, but it’s really important to rise above above it all and walk away from the negativity for your own sake. At the end of the day it doesn’t matter what other people think of you. As long as you’re doing the right things in this world and you’re happy – that’s what truly matters.
Remember, you are who you are for a reason. Everyone is unique and beautiful in their own way. Chase after your dreams and do whats good for you.
