You can be lonely when you are with your best friend.

It is better to be alone than to be lonely when you are with your best friend.

You can be alone, but you are not lonely.

Alone time is the best way to heal yourself.

You have better be alone than to be with someone who is always disrespecting you.

It is better to be alone than to be with someone who does not know you.

It is better to be alone than to be with someone who is always treating you badly.

Even though you need other people to succeed in your life, you don’t need to be around toxic people.

Even though your life is not about you, you don’t need to be around someone who is always abusing you.

If you do, the person will never stop abusing you.

You have got to leave that person.

You need to do it for your life.

You need to do it for yourself.

You need to do it for others.

Because if you can’t stand up for yourself, you won’t be able to stand up for others.

If you can’t defend yourself, you won’t be able to defend other people.

Remember, your life is not about you, but about others.

Take care of yourself to take care of others.

God Has Raised You Up

In the book of Romans 9:17, “For this very purpose I have raised you up, that I may show My power in you, and that My name may be declared in all the earth.”

You have been lifted up. Do not put yourself down. Be nice to yourself. Respect yourself. Value yourself. Don’t compete with other people. Compete with yourself. Why? Because God puts you here for a purpose. God wants you to achieve your purpose. If you compete with other people, you will miss your own dreams. You will miss your own purpose. You will miss your own life.

You can change that by taking responsibility for your own purpose. God loves responsible people. God is working on your behalf. God is fighting your serious battles on your behalf. All you need to do is to believe in Him. Give thanks to Him. And He will protect you from your fears.

God wants you to enjoy your life. You do that by taking responsibility for your own life. God can’t do everything for you. But He will be ready to help you when you are in serious trouble. When you are in serious trouble, talk to God. When things are not working for you, don’t run to man, run to God. Because He loves you. And He can change your life.
