I wanted to make sure you heard it in your mind now say it out loud.
Yes, I need to be the one to change (my mindset) because I cannot change (the behavior of) others. My mom always said that we need to be like ducks. Have you ever seen a duck in the rain? Its feathers are incredibly made by a God who knew exactly what they'd need, the rain just beads up and rolls right off. The rain just beads up and rolls right off...I'll let this roll off me for I am insignificant. I can do nothing to prevent the spite that others feel toward me but I can forgive and I can help heal. Thanks for listening. I think I found that shalom.
