Often through life, you will encounter people who get you totally wrong. It can be friends, coworkers, and even family members. Sometimes these people will attempt to bring you down to their way of living and their way of thinking. Or, if they are doing well themselves, they will try to compare you to someone else who is not doing well, or paint someone else's lifestyle, attitude, or behaviour on you.
Do not allow people to do this to you. You must know who you are and what God's perfect purpose is for your life. If people talk about you, call you names, compare you to others, or even think that you are less than they are because you are not like them or you don't do the same things they do, should be of little importance to your life. Don't let people's thoughts about you weigh you down. Don't let what people say behind your back or to your face hinder you from moving forward in the path God has set for you.
