Their opinion does not have to color your life. When I give too much credence to what someone else thinks of me, it changes how I operate in the world. I am who God created me to be. You are who God created you to be, Let's be that.
This weekend I didn't even get dressed. I don't know if I am physically, emotionally, or mentally exhausted, but it did feel good. All I did was sleep and watch movies. This doesn't happen very often, but this time I didn't feel guilty at all.
It's Monday and I'm up for anther week of who knows what. All I do know is I've had some good rest and am ready to face the day. I won't have stories to tell of great adventure or even traffic, I will have peace and energy to go another day.
I've come to a place where I don't need to keep going to please someone else. I can curl up and sleep and feel content with that. Believe it or not, this is progress in my mind. My opinion of myself is softer and gentler. Hope yours is too.
