i. don’t. care.

i. don’t. care.

 

now this might seem a bit harsh or that it is spoken out of anger or frustration..but let me explain. as girls we battle the feelings of judgment and wondering what other people think about us at all times. but why? why do we give other people such power over us? and many times it’s not even based off something they actually did or said, it’s based off our “interpretation” of the way we think they perceive us. we are worried about saying the wrong thing, doing the wrong thing, wearing the wrong thing. sometimes it even make us unable to function normally without constant paranoia. BUT we can choose differently. we can Choose to say..i. don’t. care. Meaning..I’m not going to worry about what other people think constantly. They are not the ones that are important. God is our only “judge” and he already sent Jesus to forgive and save us. so by that, we should not ever worry about what another person says about us. this does not mean that we give up and don’t take care of ourselves but rather that we do things out of joy, not out of fear. that we don’t allow the fear of man/woman to dictate what we do. we are all created differently for a reason. we have a purpose in Christ. there is absolutely no need to try and fit into society’s mold. In fact Romans 12:2 even tells us “Do not conform any longer to the patterns of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” Jesus wants us to live our life right thru His renewing, not through what we think other people want from us. PHEW! this should really lift a load off of our shoulders. we have true freedom in Christ through this. not only women but men as well. this is not always easy (in fact, it can be very difficult), it is a daily struggle at times but it is worth it.

 

so in regards to the way other people view me..i will choose to say..
