Did you ever realize that no one inherently gets happy when you do? If you make a million dollars today, that’s your victory, no one elses. Just like your decision to get up and wash up is your decision and everything you do from that point forward, so is your happiness.
You are responsible for the decisions you make.
You can ask other people for their opinions, validation, praise, or two cents, but at the end of the day, you have to live with what you decide.
Know what is in your best interest.
Do things to build yourself up versus tear yourself down.
Stop making poor decisions out of fear.
Do you realize that you can spend a lifetime inviting in the wrong people into your life and doing all the right things to make other people happy simply to belong, fit in, and please other people?
The time for people pleasing, and self-abuse is over.
It is time for you to live your life to its fullest.
Your circle is already complete whether or not you have another person in the room with you.
You have with you at all times the presence of the Holy Spirit and God and Jesus Christ with you by calling on them in prayer.
You are not alone.
So stop inviting people into your world to fill up space and to stop feeling lonely.
Analyze your circle and see if you have people in your life who genuinely care about you and are building you up.
If you have people in your life who are constantly tearing you down, wearing out your self-esteem and never seem to be happy for you, time to have a friendship divorce. Pack their bags and tell them to go. Party over.
Life is too short for you to be surrounded by negative, dead people.
Instead, invest the time that you were giving to those people to yourself and your prayer life with God. Become your number one fan, friend, and confident. You are a good person and deserve only good things. Settle for nothing less in this year.
