#REPOST FROM LAST YEAR
I've been met with much rejection and judgement in my life. Most of the time, not understanding why?! As a kid in school, I went through so much hell just trying to make friends and refrain from being bullied, all because of my size. The kids were cruel and they made sure to make me feel like the biggest and ugliest person they'd ever seen! They'd even make up rumors that I had bad hygiene, they'd draw pictures of me to pass around the classroom to make fun of me and when I wasn't at school, which I tried to make frequent in those days; many of the bullies would try to copy and make fun of the way I talked. And, this has to be one of the most embarrassing things I faced was to come into the classroom, get ready to sit down at my desk, only to look and see "YOU STINK!" written in the corner of my desk! It was hell and it almost made me quit school. But, as painful as it was, it taught me how shallow many people are. Assessing someone at face value, only keeps you as shallow as the person's surface. And, when you've been conditioned to believe this bad information, you begin to see a person as just a body. A walking, talking silhouette void of substance and value based off of how you've been conditioned to view people. You can't read a person's story simply by what their face looks like or how they're body looks. So, from experiencing the harsh reality of shallowness, when I meet a person, I aim to meet their soul and assess their mind, not their body. #pkspearman#lifecoach#selfesteem#esteembuilding#bullying#painfulchildhoodmemories#growth#healing#perspective#kidsarecruel#truelife#lifelessons#letmeseeyourheart#relationships#friendships#iwanttoknowyou#maturity#love#lovelessons#rejection#isolation#yourrejectionwasyourprotection#testimony#prayers#god#graceandmercy#favor#imadeit#strongwoman
To be honest I was like oh great legos jumping around. Like I jump over them yelling my sons name to pick up a missing piece in the house.For it has my foot bottom feeling like death!I am glad I watched Lego Ninjago today.It had a great message which I connected with so deeply.
The main lesson was "inner peace".How sometimes someone could have treated you bad BUT you must find inner peace within.NOT for them BUT for you!For they are fighting struggles within self; but let go and keep finding strength within you.
That sometimes we lack to see that the greatest power we neglect to use is the power within ourselves.When we find that power not only can we forgive those who hurt us.But we can move forward with peace. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
Sometimes we think things are are impossible because; we focus so much on the outside world.Not realizing that HEY I can look within self and that power is beautiful to find.I can make it happen.One part of the movie I won't forget is "when we look at nature we can learn from green, it teaches us to LIVE...after the hurt after the pain YOU must LIVE"Reminded me of why I feel so much peace in nature surrounded by green. #goodnight#wordsofwisdom#message#abouttoday#proudmom#legoninjagomovie#forgiveness#innerpeace
1 Peter 2:2
like newborn babies, long for the pure milk of the word, so that by it you may grow in respect to salvation
I pray we will not rely on superficial sayings to encourage us but rather we will long for the sweetness of God's word, the pure milk of Scripture. I pray we will both learn and drink pure milk as well as grow up in respect by chewing on the meat of truth. That we will no longer be babes in Christ, but mature leaders in our communities.
It's not wrong to wish/want that life you dream of when you see someone else living it in real life. But don't be intimidated and feel like you've lost when someone gains. We get intimidated by others and they also gets intimidated by us but that is not the life God wants us to live. Be happy for people and you'll see how good it'll feel when it's your turn. When we are not genuinely happy for people who's achieved something, we lose focus on what God promised us. We start comparing our journey to the next person and that leaves us feeling like loosers. But there's no competition when it comes to You- your journey, challenges, aspirations, dreams, destiny are unique. No one can ever be like you...and that my dear is the score👏. Embrace the truth that you are complete and have more than you need. You lack nothing and need what God has for you only and not what someone has. Nothing is missing when someone gains. Don't limit yourself to competitions outside yourself. You have YOU completely. The Amazing You. So thank God for what He's cooking up there, in you, with you and for you. Mature people don't compete, they put their hopes in God and just WIN!
Because I KNOW where God took me from 🙌 and HE KNOWS the plans He has for me--a hope and a future 😍. #Maturity#MoreGlory#MorePower#ChristIsMore#GreatGain#Contentment#Godliness
