Be You// Staying True to Yourself in a World of Haters

Faith, Just Plain Inspo 1 comment

You strive to be extraordinary. Beautiful. Unique. But it seems people love to squish your sweet spirit and hurl frustration at you. How do you look past the struggles to the person you really are? How do you stay true to your values with pressure closing in on your heart?

Honestly, there’s always going to be haters. People who are jealous of who you are, or get annoyed with you so they try to push you down. That’s going to happen. You can’t let it get to you……. But that’s easier said than done. It’s hard. Really hard. When someone criticizes you, it hurts!!

Here’s what the Bible says about haters: “If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you.” John 15:18. That verse washes over my soul when I’m feeling down. I know that I can go through anything with Jesus by my side.

As hard as it is, we have to let it go. We can’t be ourselves while comparing ourselves to other people. The world doesn’t need 7 billion people that are all the same. It’s important that we be the unique people that God created us to be.

Psalm 119:73- Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding, that I may learn thy commandments.

When you are in a tough spot and the world is closing in on you, use this verse to pray:

You made me; You created me. Give me wisdom to know how to overcome tough situations and rise above drama.

                            Amen.

What does it mean to be beyoutiful?

Being beyoutiful doesn’t mean being popular.
Being beyoutiful doesn’t mean having adorable outfits.
Being beyoutiful doesn’t mean having the perfect hairstyle.
Being beyoutiful doesn’t mean being able to glide through EVERY situation gracefully.

Being beyoutiful means having a grateful heart.
Being beyoutiful means using your God-given potential to fulfill your purpose.
Being beyoutiful means striving to make everyone around you feel beautiful.
Being beyoutiful means being yourself while being a friend to everyone.
And last of all, being beyoutiful means using your gifts to do what God put you on this Earth to do while loving people and being kind.
