The “like” and “dislike” symbols have had such a significant impact on our society.
Why do we want to be accepted by others so badly? Is it really that important to have people like what I like, to agree with my opinions?
If I wore my favorite pair of tennis shoes and some people didn’t like 👍🏽 them, do I then stop liking them or even stop wearing them? If I post something on social media and I get a 👍🏽, I’m happy. But if I get a 👎🏽, I’m sad, disappointed, or hurt without knowing who’s responding to the post. If I like it, it shouldn’t matter if someone else doesn’t.
What I’ve learned about people who like you is that as soon as you do something that they don’t like, they won’t like you anymore.
So like 👍🏽 yourselves! Like your nose, like the shape of your head, like your height, like your hair, the color of your eyes, as well as the color of your skin. God loves you, just the way you are. Love yourself!
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.
