other people

Why am I so concerned about other people and their opinion of me? Why do I let it get to me? I am more than that and I do not answer to them so why listen to them or let them control my moods. No more. This is one more thing I need to let go of and not let it control me. I am a child of God and nothing else matters!

    As I was reading your page, I saw this blog title and had to click on it. I read it and clicked out of it and came back. I understand your pain, here. I too, feel like I need to please people and care what their opinions of me are. I have trouble believing that there isn't a soul out there who doesn't feel this way. Those who act like they don't care are just hiding it. They treat others badly, make fun of other people, and yet, they have loads of friends. I don't understand it. You know that Satan encourages them in this behavior. Their error is listening to his lies. I don't have any real friends. People just don't like me. I treat people the way I want to be treated. No one is invisible to me, nor are they the brunt of my jokes. I have asked God to help me get over my insecurities, but it is a hard thing to actually do. I have just now started to come around to really not caring if they like me or not. The only person I need to please is our Father. It can be lonely, but He gives me strength. Just remember that this earth is not our home. I will keep you in my prayers for strength too. Hugs to you.

    It seems as if we always want everyone all the time to accept us for who we are.

    When they don't accept us for who we are we are offended and take it as a form of rejection and that leads us to internalize the feeling of rejection and not being worthy of their acceptance.

    Just get over it and refuse all imagined or real offense and love and respect and accept you for being who you were created to be in Jesus.

    Enjoy today being you. emoticon

    I did read a book once called, People Pleaser Addiction or a similar title.
