Knowing who you are and who's you are is the answer to all of life's encounters. I saw a post the other day that sums it up this way:
"When someone treats you like you're just one of many options, help them narrow their choice by removing yourself from the equation. Sometimes you have to try not to care, no matter how much you do. Because sometimes you can mean almost nothing to someone who means so much to you. It's not pride -- it's self respect. Don't give part-time people a full-time position in your life. Know your value & what you have to offer, and never settle for anything less than what you deserve."
Mic drop! It's never too late to make a new start. God has given us all we need to fulfill His purpose while we sojourn on this earth. Don't allow another to keep you from being all that you can be.
