Shade gone wrong.

You know what amuses me? When someone throws petty indirect messages, directly at you, but the 💩 backfires and comes back to them like a boomerang.

I be like, “Oh, that was meant for me? No thank you.” Now, they’re stuck with the insults or jabs they’ve tried to throw at you. You see, you don’t have to receive or respond to anything that anyone says about you or says to you. Words have power, be it negative or positive. If they speak negatively about you, reject those words in Jesus name, and keep it pushing. That’s only their opinion, of you and not your truth. Let them have their opinions. They can keep it, eat it, shove it up their butts or do whatever they want to do with it. Other people’s opinions of you don’t belong to you, it belongs to them. You know the funny thing about someone who always has something negative to say about you? They’re so worried about you, that they can’t see nor correct what’s wrong with them. They can’t mind their business because they’re overly concerned about yours. Matthew 7:4-5 says, “How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.” In other words, attend to your own business before concerning yourself with mine. I’m glad that I learned long ago that, you can’t please everyone. Not everyone will like you, support you or love you, and that’s okay. As long as you’re honoring God, and you love, support and believe in yourself, you’re good! Keep those positive vibes regardless of the negativity or shade thrown at you. When people throw shade your way, respond with sunshine. Let your light speak for itself. If you need to defend your character, do so without stooping to their level. You only have to stoop to people who are beneath you. So, continue to rise above the pettiness. Say what you have to say with class and grace. Don’t argue, don’t fight, don’t get your blood pressure up or stress yourself out. Let them do all of that, meanwhile; you let the insults roll off of you like water on a duck’s back. Their hatred and insults shows everyone who they really are. Nine times out of ten, it shows them to be guilty of the very things that they accuse you of. Go ahead and get your shine on! Shine so bright that the shade they try to throw on you, casts a shadow on them. Proverbs 26:27, “If you set a trap for others, you will get caught in it yourself. If you roll a boulder down on others, it will crush you instead.”
