I know lots people that go like, “It’s my life I can do anything I want”. I most of the time agree with them because living life depending on what people think about you is simply awful. You can never be yourself because your mind is too busy worrying about what they will think or say. I always say, be yourself, forget haters and move on with what you love to do because you cannot please men. They are way too difficult to satisfy and they do not know the real person that you are. They simply judge you from your mistakes especially.
One day I was in a meeting with a man of God who made me realise something I didn’t know: It is fine to live your life and forget other people’s opinions, but at the same time it is also very wrong. The people that look up to you as their role models, perhaps your children, your mother or friends can turn their backs on life because of anything negative you could do. For example, let’s say your pastor, who’s also your mentor, happens to cheat with women in church and everybody knows about it. You are so devastated by the news, your walk with the Lord was going so fine because the man of God was so much of an inspiration in your life, but now everything has just collapsed. You don’t know what to believe and even tho you know that your pastor is also only a man (flesh) aside of him being a preacher, that doesn’t stop you from being hurt and it will in some way slow down your walk with God unless your spirit is strong. You see what I mean, living your life the way you want without giving a damn about what people think could be very harming to those who admire you if you step aside your usual place and status. Jesus lived for us, so should we live for others. It’s called a life of sacrifice.
It’s my life I can do anything I want, wrong. It’s Gods life not yours.
