There will always be times and instances when you are misunderstood. Even when you have the best intentions there will always be a chance that someone will take an action that you performed or a statement that you made, out of context. The best way to avoid being misunderstood is to stay true to your values. Always remain true to yourself. Just Do You. It does not matter what a situation looks like to other people. You cannot concern yourself with what everybody thinks. Live Your Truth. Speak your truth in love but say what you mean and mean what you say.
My truth is what gets me up in the morning? It gives me a reason to keep going, to continue to love God’s people. Who can I help today? What do I need to do to make the world a little better? Alone the way you will be criticized. You will be told you are doing too much, it does not take all that, but guess what; it does take all that to be who God intended you to be.
Living through the Corona Virus has changed my way of thinking in so many ways. This virus has shown me the true value of life and just how precious it is. I do not want to waste another minute worrying about what other people think, or am I being understood, or what if they do not like me. I refuse to fixate on things that I cannot change while I neglect the things, I can do something about.
My faith in God is important to me. I want to continue to live a life that is pleasing in his sight. That is all that matters in the end.
… “Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.”
