It seems there has been a move to stop listening, stop learning, and to instead start demanding. The noise gets louder. The demands get greater. I am left trying to hold tight to who I am and who I am supposed to be. It has to stop.
The Declaration of a Hurting Heart
- I will not take responsibility for your actions.
I will not take responsibility for your inactions.
I will not be defined by you.
I will invest in being a blessing.
I will invest in showing and sharing Love.
I will invest in things that are good, positive, hopeful, and uplifting.
I will take purposeful action towards my unique design.
The trouble we face today is that too many people want to define me by their limits, their expectations, their experiences, or their understandings. A person cannot (and should not) be defined by people. A person cannot (and should not) be limited to the expectations of others. A person cannot (and should not) be grouped with others because he or she lives in the same area, looks the same as, or even talks the same as others.
A person is a person – judged by the actions of a person . . . THAT ONE PERSON.
Too often, someone wants to judge one person by another person because of an accent, a location, an outfit, or something other than the one person that is being judged.
Now don’t even get me started on how judgment is not mine or yours – that’s a whole different ballgame. Right now, I just want to express the problem with judging one person by another person for whatever reason.
It would be like me judging one book by the book cover next to it.
This has to stop, and I am drawing my line.
I am declaring my independence from your limits. This means that from here on out I do not have to explain to you why I believe the way I believe, why I act the way I act, or why I live the way I live – because my journey, my purpose, and my direction are uniquely mine.
I challenge you to be you.
It’s time to let me be me.
