Measuring stick opinions…
Will what you’re about to say add value to my life?
Is it hearsay or truth?
Who asked you anyway?
Did I ask your opinion?
Can you hear yourself saying that? I can. These are some of the things that I’d like to say to some people who THINK I care about what they have to say, especially when I never asked what they thought. When I don’t care, I shrug, I nod, I smile and then I walk away.
Do we really care what someone, especially outside of our inner circle, thinks of us? Does it matter in your heart that THEIR opinion of you, matters?
Are they your measuring stick? Nobody else holds the measuring stick for you….UNLESS you give it to them. Now why would you go and do that?! YOU have got to know how wonderful you are. YOU have got to see how beautiful you are. YOU have got to believe how valuable you are.
That’s what matters. Not their opinion.
UNLESS maybe …if it’s your mom, or your best friend or your big brother. Then maybe it truly does matter. In that case we should be willing to sit down and listen to them. As they speak from their heart – because they love you so dang much – AND if they can tell you the truth with kind, loving words…. Then maybe you should listen. ESPECIALLY when you asked them what they thought! Right?
Remember…don’t ask for someone’s opinion and then get mad at them for giving it.
And if it’s someone outside your inner circle, who seems to think that what they have to say about you matters. Nope. Uhuh. There is no room for their measuring stick opinions. Seriously.
Be the You that measures Yourself.
Your God girl,
