Some days I let the little things get under my skin. I let the words you say, the actions you choose, the comments you make under your breath, the way you look at me change my thought process. Those are the days when I truly learn more about myself.
Go ahead, keep up the comments. Continue trying to bring me down. Tell me I’m not good enough. You’re just helping me build myself to being an even better person.
I will NOT give you the control over my attitude.
You will NOT steal my happiness.
You can judge me
You can try and hurt me
You can be bitter
You can be nasty
I will treat you with the respect I deserve.
I will not let your poison into my heart.
I will not let you control who I am.
“Therefore, laying aside falsehood, SPEAK TRUTH, EACH ONE OF YOU, with HIS NEIGHBOR for we are members of one another.
Be angry and yet DO NOT SIN; do not let the sun go down on your anger,
and do not give the devil an opportunity,
Let him who steals steal no longer; but rather let him labor, performing with his own hands something that is good, in order that he may have something to share with him who has need.
Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for education according to the need of the moment that it may give grace tho those who hear.
And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away form you along with all malice.
And be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.” Ephesians 4.25-32
