“Outward criticisms can only ever effect you to the degree your inward insecurities allow them to.”-Steven Furtick
“and not in any way terrified by your adversaries, which is to them a proof of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that from God” (Philippians 1:28)
Self pity is one of the most destructive forces on earth.
We have all gone through things that have shaped our lives some for good, others not so much. There is healing and freedom for whatever you go through or have gone through, however the only way you can access that FOR REAL is you have got to cancel the pity party.
YOU’RE NOT OVER IT IF:
You are one of those people who doesn’t do something because of something that is associated with a previous hurt, pain or trauma. For instance, when a woman says ” I don’t trust any men” or when a man says “I don’t trust any women”. First of all, all men, all women are not the same and I hate to rock your entire universe, but hunny? If they’re all the same then YOU are the common denominator in that equation of problems and the question now becomes WHY do YOU keep allowing the same kind of person into your life and why aren’t your standards higher? You need some healing and if you don’t get it? You are going to make every relationship that you ever have one miserable place to be.
Every time (or most of the time) anything is said or done that scratches the surface of that thing, here you go. You’re like an emotional slot machine and every time somebody puts a quarter in you talk about it. That victim mentality is GARBAGE. I’m sorry to bust your selfish bubble but EVERYBODY has been a victim of something at sometime and we are all victims of the government. So.. you can either take all that pain and suffering and use it to fuel your fire for good & help others or you can sit around and be a victim the rest of your life. The choice is yours and in case you haven’t heard or have been paying any attention to the state of the world? You don’t have much time left to make that decision….
