Do You Like It?

Perhaps, we should stopping asking people do they like certain things about us.  I know women especially are good for seeking the approval of other women. Truth is, if you like a certain hairstyle, or a certain outfit, or a certain shoe why should anyone's opinion change your true feelings? It shouldn't. As long as you are being respectful to others, do what makes you happy.

Even though, I know that I'm healthy and I know that I feel good I sometimes want to be assured that I don't look too small. However, it doesn't matter to me anymore because I am happy with who I am. I determined not to let anyone's opinion affect the way that I feel about myself.

When someone says I like it, you get happy. When someone says I don't like it, you get offended, or upset, and then try to figure out how to make them happy. Don't be so easily controlled by the opinions of others.

Social media is just another tool that many of us use to boost our self-esteem. Many times we post what we think people will like. What if we post how we really feel and not this picture perfect life that we want others to believe that we have? You want to know how I know that your life isn't picture perfect, because my life isn't.

But yet we try to convince one another that we're living the life. Many times you're just showing off or crying for some attention.

My main purpose for using social media is not to be liked. I'm here to learn, inspire, inform, and connect with like-minded individuals. You can never be free by trying to live up to the standards of what other people like or what others expect from you. Society tell us to get an education, get a good job, get a nice house, drive a nice car, get married, and have children. What do you have to say about all that? Is society controlling how you live your life?

I personally like to be different. It started from birth. My parents raised me to be different. "And be not conformed to this world; but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God." I did stray away and tried to conform to the world but now I'm coming back, but in my own way. Your journey will not be the same as someone else's journey. You can't follow others because they say this is what you should do. You have to be persuaded in your own mind.  God is bringing me closer to him by bringing me back to nature. Nature, natural, God's creation, how he intended things to be.

  1. 3 John 1:4 - I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth. So don't just know the truth but be the truth by walking in the truth and living in the truth.

    God bless you, Love Dad
