Live your own life. Do not do things just because other people are doing it.

From now on, make a point to always love yourself, to always enjoy yourself, to be comfortable with yourself, to accept yourself, to face your life, no matter what.

You do not need other people to connect with yourself. But you do need YOU to connect with yourself. Without you, the real you, not the worldly you, you cannot connect with your real self. You cannot see yourself.

Whether things are good or not, make a point to always be there for you. Do not let anyone drag you down. And do not drag yourself down. Learn to live your life.

If you want to live a peaceful life, John Stange says,

Just continue to be you

“You don’t need to add anything to the drama of what took place by texting your friends about it or changing your demeanor toward those who offended you. Just continue to be you. Don’t let this drag you down. Make a point to be kind, even to those who weren’t kind to you.”- John Stange

Invest your time in your real friends

“What your friends did to you was wrong, but it was also a favor in disguise. She let you know that your friendship wasn’t genuine and that you’d be better off investing your time in your real friends.”- John Stange

You are loved more deeply than you realize

“You are loved more deeply than you realize. I love you, your mother loves you, and, most importantly, the Lord loves you. Our love for you is not conditional. We will never stop loving you.”- John Stange

God’s Love

God’s love is unconditional. It is peaceful. If you are looking for love, real love, seek God’s love.

It is what you need when you are happy. God’s love is what you need when things are not going well. God’s love is what you need when your friends are gone.

Rely on God’s love. Do not worry about what your friends are saying about you. If you rely on God’s love, you have everything. You have life. You have yourself.

When things are down, when the road ahead is unknown, rely on God’s love. In his book Dwell on These Things: A Thirty-One- Day Challenge to Talk to Yourself Like God Talks to You, John Stange writes, “God’s love can be relied on when you’re in the middle of drama. God’s love can be relied on when your friends desert you. God’s love can be relied on when you’ve made major mistakes. God’s love can be relied on when you’re trying to bounce back from whatever’s got you down.”

Whatever you are going through, do not rely on people. They will disappoint you. They will desert you. They will live you where you are. But God will never live you alone. He believes in you. He just want you to trust yourself, to believe in yourself.

Do not worry about anything. Rely on God’s love. He will save you. He won’t run away from you. The question is, do you trust yourself?
