October is Anti-Bullying Awareness Month

Don’t let the negativity of others define who you are. Why would you listen to people who think of themselves as less?

Why would you listen to other people who are constricted to their own ideas and standards?

Why would you listen to others’ limited experience?

Things we forget to tell ourselves from time to time: No matter how shitty or stupid you feel, you are always worth it. You are always worthy and capable of love, and being loved.

October is anti-bullying awareness month, and while we all have our stories of someone who tried to bring us down, deep down, all bullies have insecurities that they try to draw strength from making someone else insecure. And these bullies, have their reasons to why they are like that. Sometimes we will never know. We can’t just assume why. There is more to what we think we know. But what we CAN do is,

Share good energy. Share love.

Stick to nice, confident people. Gain strength from good people to be able to withstand negative energy. Transform bad energy into good. I believe in all of these. I have witnessed and felt this myself.

All in all, you don’t have to prove anything to anyone else. Just feel good in the liberation of doing what you want, and filtering out unnecessary comments from yourself and others.

People need to point out social issues more. Our culture is so obsessed with being okay with everything that sometimes we’re in denial of bad things, and we think it’s uncool or interrupting harmony to point out issues. No. Just no.

"For some reason, we think our shame too great a burden to carry for Christ, because we have found it too great a burden to carry. But Christ tells us “Why do you carry it? Why do you ask Me to carry it? Have I not taken it when I died for you?” And in that response, we realize that our shame is not anyone’s to carry, for it is meant to be put to death along with our sin. Beloved, you are not this mistake, for you are more than conquerers in Christ; He broke those chains, so why do you hold onto something that cannot hold you? Reach for Christ, those are the arms that can sustain you and renew you, those are the arms that will never reject you."
