I was struggling with this so much that yesterday I threw out this statement on Facebook.
I have to keep reminding myself that I can't be everything to everybody...I just have to keep being the best I can be for Him and Him alone. Which is not easy when you are a recovering "people pleaser".
For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.
Talk about a perspective shift, which is exactly what I needed. Today. Everyday.
I'm not going to make everyone happy,
so why not shift my focus from them...to Him.
What about you...
What do you do when you catch yourself trying to be everything to everybody?
How do you know that you've been focused on the wrong one for far too long?
I can't wait to hear from you!
