That got me to thinking about a bible quote from Matthew 7:4 that inspires me, it 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?
In other words it’s saying how can you look pass your problems and focus on someone else’s. I preach this to my kids all the time and tell them often not to worry about other people’s drama and get their own life situations together. When kids are young they worry so much about what others think of them too and not really try to focus on them. If they would just realize that later on in life, it doesn’t really matter what others think of you. The world is a huge place, if you are concerned with one person not liking you, think of all the others that do love you. Its hard to explain this when your kids are young though but I try to explain this lol.
In my own life I would often try to fix other people’s problems when my own house was in shambles, boy have I learned so much over the years and now, I take better care of myself and do what I can for others but with less stress.
