The thought crossed my mind today that I needed to “Consider the Source”. I learned it from my program. I have accepted the fact that not everyone is going to love you or like you, so you must consider the source. Some others may try to hurt you, use or abuse you, but you have to be strong and learn to say “No” to their evil ways.
If the evil ones don’t like me that is alright, because their opinion of me does not matter. It only matters what God thinks of me, and I am not on this earth to please the ungodly. My God wants me to speak the TRUTH, whether anyone else wants to hear it or not. Stand my ground, and Speak up against evil. I have always been a writer so I write about the things that are important to me. My God loves me unconditionally and He does not expect me to be perfect. I only have to do the best that I can with what He has given me.
In Life You Will Realize That There Is A Purpose For Everyone You Meet.
Some will test you, some will use you and some will teach you.
But most important are the ones who bring out the best in you, respect you and accept you for who you are. Those are the ones worth keeping around.
God has put people into my life that have shown me what I do not want to be like, and He has also put the people into my life that have shown me what I do want to become like.
Choose wisely. And…hopefully you will get to the point to where you are tired of paying the consequences for your bad decisions, and so you will learn to make better decisions. God will keep putting you in those situations until you learn your lesson and then you can stop repeating your self defeating actions, that are not in your best interests.
We are powerless over our past, we cannot save the world, we must accept reality and work on what we can change ourselves. Learn from your mistakes, then turn it over to God, ask for forgiveness and let it go. Move on with your life and lessons, and do the best that you can with what God has given you.
Amen, praise God that today, I know that I have a choice. When someone pushes my buttons and tries to piss me off, I have a choice, and I can choose to not “react”, or I can “react” and lose my serenity. I value my serenity and peace of mind today.
I choose to live in the “solution” instead of the “problem”. I choose to remove myself from the drama. I cannot change anyone else, but I don’t have to put up with their bad attitudes and actions. I remove myself…I pray…I leave…go to a meeting…visit a friend…or maybe take a vacation.
People have a choice too, and if they choose to continue to live in the “chaos”, that is their choice. I cannot stop others from living in the drama, but I can choose to not participate or live in it with them.
Moma always told us that if we could not say something nice then we should not say anything at all. I think that is some very good advice. It is not that I don’t want to help others, but I have come to accept that I cannot do it for them.
I cannot imagine that when a person finds out that they have a choice, that they would choose to be miserable.
