Don’t worry about pleasing everyone…
There are times when you try your best to put everyone first. You think that you’ve made all of the right decisions and know in your heart that what you are doing is best for those around you. No matter what move you make, you will always have someone who complains and finds something negative to say about you and your actions.
When this happens, it is your responsibility to be confident in yourself and know that you can’t please everyone. There will always be a few people, or even several people who just don’t want you to progress in life. Or they may be so bitter with their lives that they can’t see success if it was right in front of them.
Whatever the case, you must not allow someone else’s negativity to affect your positivity. Continue to work on yourself and be who God has called you to be. Eventually, they won’t have a choice but to recognize the positive influence that you possess.
Reflection – Think about a time when someone directly criticized you. How did it make you feel?
