Prompt for December 24: Ah ha. What deep thought struck you this year? How did it change you?
I will not be held captive by other people’s emotions, thoughts, or feelings.
It’s true, I can be sensitive. I want people to like me. I’m a pleaser.
But it is just fact that there will be people who don’t like me. Or like what I do. Or who don’t want to be my friend.
And I am not responsible for those people’s feelings. I don’t need to change myself to appease them. I don’t need to try to get them to like me.
I’m not a victim of people’s whims. And I won’t be a prisoner of their mood.
