Is it just me or does it seems like the whole world has gone a little crazy these days? When a person isn’t rooted firmly in their own identity it easy to let others shift your belief to who you might actually be. However on the flip side of this when you know exactly who you are toxic people can’t sway you away from standing firm knowing that you are right where you need to be. Most of the time what people are actually saying is a reflection of themselves not you. Could it be hurtful? Absolutely, but the best way to react is simply not to say anything at all. Just stand tall and smile knowing a rebuttal isn’t needed at all. Never allow someone else’s bitterness change you! One thing I know without a shadow of a doubt is that you can’t control what people think or say about you. But you have the ability to determine how you react to it.
“For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice.” James 3:16
