All my life I have been quiet, shy, and laid back especially when I was younger. I never knew how to stand up to people, say no, or speak up for myself. I let people run all over me, bully me, use me, and stomp on me. Well no more. I am tired of the drama and tired of the cliques. I am tired of standing back, and being quiet for the sake of trying to be nice. I am tired of letting people push me into things I don’t want to do. I am tired of worrying about what other people will think of me and tired of trying to please everyone.
Being a Christian does not mean, we have to let people walk all over us. The Bible does not say we cannot stand up for ourselves. I am not a weak person, I am a strong woman of God, and I need to walk that way. I need to live my life that way. The time has come to change. God has called us to walk boldly for Him. No more cowering in fear. We can make a difference if we step out in faith and let Him use us.
If you agree with me take the pledge:
I Pledge to…
Say NO to drama.
From now on, I will take stand. I will not let you put me down. I will not back down and I will not be afraid. I will live my life how I want to live it and not according to how you think I should live it. I will live my life according to God’s Word and not your word. I will do what I think is right for me and my family because I do not have to answer to you. I will no longer do things to make others happy, but I will do things that make me happy.
Gone is the fear because today I will say no. Because I am an adult. I am an adult who knows how to have self-control. I am an adult who knows when enough is enough. And I am Adult enough to say I am not going to let this bother me. Adult enough to say this does not need to go on anymore. I am going to love ME for who I am and who God created me to be. I am going to love the person that I am no matter what others may say or think of me. I will stand up and not back down for those that are also like me and I will defend those who do not have anyone defending them.
