Not everyone is going to get you.
That’s a hard pill to swallow. Maybe more like swallowing gravel, but it’s true – and it’s ok.
There’s nothing wrong with you. We are all just human, and humans are flawed. There’s something deep within us that makes us think it’s ok to judge others – to determine how others measure up.
Others judge us. We judge others. It’s a viscous cycle.
First of all, we need to stop doing that mess to others. Secondly, we have to stop beating ourself up when others do it to us. We are what God thinks of us – not what other people think.
I’m not saying to have a “do you boo” attitude.
All I’m saying is that if you are truly embracing Jesus then you’re doing all that you can do. You’re on the right path, and that’s all that matters.
Not everyone is going to get you. Not everyone is going to like you. Don’t let that determine your happiness. Don’t let it consume you.
Be nice anyway.
Be kind anyway.
Follow Jesus anyway.
Not everyone is going to get you, but Jesus always will. And that’s all that matters.
“3 At the same time, pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ, on account of which I am in prison— 4 that I may make it clear, which is how I ought to speak.
5 Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time. 6 Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.
