I have learned that it doesn’t matter what type of person you are or who you are, others are going to see what they want to see. They are only going to see their depiction of you.
It doesn’t matter what you say or how you say it, others are only going to hear what they want to hear.
It doesn’t matter how much good you do, others will only see the one time you screwed up and made a mistake. That’s all they will remember.
You can try to fill them up with your knowledge, and they will refuse it, because to them, you don’t know what you’re talking about and they won’t take the time to open their ears to listen.
You can scream and prove all day and every day, trying to convince them otherwise, but it will just be a waste of time.
Most folks have tunnel vision and are stuck in their own ways. You won’t be able to change their mind, it’s been set in stone.
So why do we waste our time trying to prove ourselves. No wonder we are exhausted all the time. No wonder we feel defeated. We are too busy trying to change a mind and convince a mind that will never change.
So, I choose to live for me and mine. I’m not trying to impress or explain who I am. Make up your mind about me how you see fit, someone else’s thoughts are none of my business. Just know I’m not perfect.
But God loves me just the way I am and that’s all that matters…. oh and so does my dog.
