Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Philippians 4:8 NIV
Bring It Into Play
Do you look at other people and assume you know what they are thinking?
Is she mad at me? She thinks my outfit's gross.
She thinks I am Ugly... Annoying... Fat...
In reality you are just making stuff up. And a lot of times it is hurtful.
That internal dialogue actually damages your self-esteem.
AND it isn't even true.
You are the one saying mean things to yourself.
If someone spoke those things to you, hand it back to them.
That is their heart issue to deal with, not yours. Don't grab onto it and say it over and over.
STOP putting yourself in a box trying to fit what other people want you to be (Romans 12:2). Be who you were created to be. There is nothing wrong with who you are.
Allow yourself to be unique, different and to changes as you grow as a person.
Ask Jesus to help you see the things that are true about you (Phlippians 4:8). Pray about what is causing you to be so insecure that you assume people are mad or think mean thoughts about you.
