Know Yourself

Never let someone get you off your game. There will be people who feel like they can speak things into your life, and say things about you that you know to your core are not true. They will try to define you through the lenses of their own distorted perspectives, and try to make you agree with what they see when looking at you. If you know yourself – truly know yourself, then reject those false images. Reject those definitions that go directly against who you are as a person. Recently, I had someone very close to me say to me that I was argumentative and difficult to get along with. However, the reality was they just could not accept what I was saying to them. It had nothing to do with me and everything to do with how they saw themselves in relation to me. We cannot control how others see us. We can, and should, do our best to put our best foot forward and do what we know is right. However, never let anyone push you down in the mud, redefine your character and make you feel like you are not the person you thought you were. Reject those sneaky innuendos and low-key slights. Be confident in who you are and keep moving forward.
