Some people will go to great lengths to hurt and degrade you, which is very sad. Don't let them steal your joy. Keep moving forward with grace and honesty. Always have faith and believe in yourself. Also, as hard as it may be, pray for those people who attack your character as a human being. By doing so, you no longer let them live rent free in your thoughts and feelings. Give it to God.
"One often meets their destiny on the way to somewhere else. At first glance it may appear too hard. Look again. Always look again." - Mary Anne Radmacher /ExLibrisJournals on etsy
