This stands true for me since i've shut down from people, i feel more confident without their negative vibes bringing me down. I was tired of being excluded, and looked down on all while being friendly, polite, & supportive. I'm much more confident now. Self respect has taken away the insecurities. I'm also getting a very sharp intuition as i get older that i listen very closely to.
Take a moment to pause with God this morning and thank Him for all the undeserved blessings He has poured into your life, a moment to connect with the One who has shown you grace is well worth the time. - David Jeremiah (1 Minute a Day)
