I know. I know the twenty dozen reasons why you’re mad at the world. I know you: (choose all that apply)
I know it sucks, and it’s left you feeling: (choose all that apply)
But it doesn’t help you or your fellow humans for you to be angry at those loved enough, strong enough, bold enough, and/or healed enough to be who they are. No. In fact, you’re hurting yourself everytime you condemn someone else for being: (choose all that apply)
I have a three-step solution:
1. MIND YOUR BUSINESS- if you’re an accountable person, you should be so busy tending to your mess and improving yourself that you don’t have time to worry about or even notice what sin or mistake someone else is making. That’s how accountability works. Focus on you and don’t let yourself get distracted or diverted from working on you by the excuse of fixing or saving other people. (We’re granting an exception to me, right now, so I can write this to you.) This includes God. He/She doesn’t need you speaking for him/her. Pretty sure he/she’s got this.
2. If you can’t mind your own business, DIG- Figure out why you’re so invested in another person’s ______. Why you’re really, really this concerned about someone else’s business.
3. GROW WITH LOVE- You’re enough. You’re worthy of love. Love yourself. You’re forgiven. Love everyone else. Forgive them. Understand what unconditional love is. Give it to yourself. Surround yourself with those who give it to you. Then you can be yourself and your resentment of other people who are happy or pursuing happiness will dissipate.
Now get over here, Angsty and get a free hug…it’s a start.
