So many times, most of us measure our successes and failures against the standards of others. We aspire, try, push to be like other people. we do everything we can to “belong”; to be “liked”; to be “accepted.”
Folks what if I told you what others think of you is irrelevant? And that what matters is what and who God has destined you to be?
The truth about you is this:
You are not “inferior.”
You are simply “You.”
You are an uncommon person
“You” as a personality are not in competition with any other personality simply because there is not another person on the face of the earth like you, or in your particular class.
You are an individual. You are unique.
You are not “like” any other person and can never become “like” any other person.
You are not “supposed” to be like any other person and no other person is “supposed” to be like you.
God did not create a standard person and in some way, label that person by saying “this is it.” He made every human being individual and unique just as He made every snowflake individual and unique.
God created short people and tall people, large people and small people, skinny people and fat people, black, yellow, red and white people. He has never indicated any preference for any one size, shape or colour.
“Abraham Lincoln once said, “God must have loved the common people for he made so many of them.” He was wrong. There is no “common man”—no standardized, common pattern. He would have been nearer the truth had he said, “God must have loved uncommon people for he made so many of them.”
Stop measuring yourself against the standards of others. You are not “them” and can never measure up. Neither can they measure up to yours—nor should they.
